Since I usually hide behind tall walls and duck behind bushes to avoid all human contact while snapping outfit photos, I’ve always wondered how bloggers in big cities take photos. (What if someone sees you? What if they ask what you are doing? What if they visit your blog?!?! Mind explode.) Yesterday I figured our the secret: you simply do not care. Oh hello stranger man walking down the street, not paying attention to this girl snapping photos on. It’s nice to ignore you, too. Have a good day.

I spoke at the IFB conference yesterday. It went well, except for the fact that my morning face was in full force. It’s hard to tell someone how excited you are about being a business owner when your face looks like a sleeping toddler. But other than that, it was a good morning, and I got to meet some new people who didn’t care at all that I photograph my outfits on the streets. In fact they do it, too.

  11. You do such a great job of ignoring people and looking natural! I am like you: I HATE people being around for any public photo. I am getting better, though. It is somehow liberating, not caring. And you look lovely in New York.

    Great outfit! I remember hearing once from a celebrity that NY people normally wont even glance at you on the streets, they just tend to ignore you and keep on going. I guess in big cities watching a girl having her pictures taken is not that big of a deal. Which for public-camera shy people is great!

    I love your outfit, the skirt is very beautiful! Is it possible to watch a video/streaming of your speak at the ifb conference somewhere online? 
    And well, yes, I can totally understand what you mean, it's strange (at least for me it's strange) to take photos when other people walk by and watch (stare) at you, like you would be an alien and why on earth you would take photos (and so strange photos, as if the outfit would be photographed) on the street. I love to hide behind a house too, but sometimes it's just not possilbe. Once I took a photo right in front of the Opera in Munich, just before the representation started, well, guess how many people kept staring at me… I should also learn to ignore them 😉

    Also, my tactic while shooting photos is that if someone is staring at me, I stop what I'm doing and stare at them back until they get over it and walk/drive away. Works like a charm!

    Btw.. Love the combination, especially digging the color of the skirt!

    haha! so refreshing to hear another blogger talk about the awkwardness that ensues with public photography. the best blogs are those that make everything seem effortless. "oh, I just arose looking this wonderful, and here I am enjoying a coffee with my guy and I happen to look gorgeous. and it happens to be photographed beautifully." when I hand a stranger my camera, it's always out of focus. the boyfriend is learning though…

    regardless, your style and beauty is effortless! love this outfit! cheers from san francisco! xoxo – molly

  116. Please tell me how you manage to NOT look like a hot mess in NYC? I was there twice last month and each time I was a wreck.

    Let me just say how insanely awesome it is that passerbys ignore you in NYC. Here *EVERYONE* stares.

    This outfit looks amazing. Red and blue always look good together, but, well, these are the perfect shades too. 

    If that makes sense. 

    Glad to hear the speaking went well; I'm rather envious of all the people who got to be there. Sounds like all the speakers were very inspiring!

    everyone ignores everyone here in nyc (or at least I do…not intentionally…)! i've heard that's why celebrities love the city. but if you need help with directions, new yorkers always pull thru with a smile.

    This is New York. No one is going to look twice at something like this. We only raise eyebrows if someone starts waving a gun around.

    I, however, am looking twice at that bag. Need!

    I love this outfit…esp the lace detail on your skirt.  I am impressed that you were able to catch pictures without people in your background in NYC!

  132. It's funny because with the amount of characters in LA, you'd think people wouldn't think I'm weird, but they still stare when I'm out taking photos.  Ah, the challenging life of a blogger!  Who makes your watch, by the way?

    cute outfit, i love the colours together!

    i'm completely the same, i try & make any "outfit" photos look like i'm a tourist just posing for a photo. When i do the "blogger looking down" pose it's not so convincing..

    your hair's looking awesome btw! does it just grow the same rate as Olivia's?? You're so on trend!! 😉
