Now that I have moved to Panama (after living two years in the U.S.A.), the entire process of making outfits and taking pictures has changed. As I have said several times, Panama is a VERY hot and humid country. Therefore, it is essential to wear outfits that are light and cool. Today I defied that "rule" and decided to wear tights. The truth is that I miss wearing some of my winter clothes!! Luckily, these tights are very thin, so I wasn't hot at all!

Another challenge I face here in Panama is where to take my outfit pictures. The place I lived at in the U.S. was surrounded with millions of places to take pretty outdoor pictures; but here in Panama, I am limited to my backyard. I honestly really do like my backyard, but I feel that the pictures get kinda boring after taking them so many times in the same place. Thankfully, I managed to take today's pictures in a different and much prettier place. But most days, I just don't have the time to go out of my way to find a different spot to take pictures.

So those are some of the challenges I have been facing here in terms of my outfits and my outfit pics. It's all a matter of adapting and finding a way to make it work. I want to thank all of you for all your support and kind words. You really motivate me to do my best!

What challenges do you face in terms of your outfits and, if applicable, your outfit pics?

  1. I love your ring, it's gorgeous - and so is your backdrop!

  2. I'm not really an outfit blogger (yet) but I find myself constantly wearing the same pair of jeans and the same blouses. By following blogs like yours, it challenges me to dress a little differently every day, even if it's just adding a necklace. I love the backdrop by the way, and great job of styling the blue tights!

  3. LOVE this dress! So adorable and such a pretty blue color on you!

    I don't find outfits so difficult with our weather but I do find pictures difficult. I only have about 10 minutes to take my photos in the morning before rushing out the door to work, so when it's still dark I'm confined to my bedroom. When the time changes and it's lighter earlier, I might be able to go out on the front porch for outdoor lighting but the scenery isn't exactly pretty.

  4. I don't have a challenge finding places to take pictures but having someone to take them. It's hard to take pictures by yourself if you don't have many flat surfaces! LOL

  6. It is a challenge :)
    Although it helps a little to have freezing air conditioned offices... that is how I usually pull off my tights.
