Jake and I are getting engagement pictures taken next Sunday! Yes, I realize we've been engaged since November and our wedding is less than 5 months away. I have a good photographer friend through work (who isn't shooting our wedding) who offered to do them for us and she convinced me that I may regret not having them done later on. She's giving them to us as a gift, so how could I refuse??
Anyways, I've been really struggling in finding something to wear. I REALLY wanted to wear a dress, but I am super worried that it will be cold that morning. We're doing them in early April at 9am. Outside. Yeah. So I didn't want to stand there and freeze my butt off and have the pictures come out weird. I finally talked myself out of the dress and realized I could still look cute in jeans.
After much searching online and at the mall, I decided jeans, a cute sweater and fun flats were the way to go. I really wanted something classic so that the pictures weren't dated by a super trendy outfit. Plus, I'm not really a "trendy" dresser anyways, and I want to look like myself, not someone trying to be trendy. So here's the outfit:

I like it because it's simple and classic. Jake is just wearing khakis, a button down and his boat shoes. I'll definitely post the pictures when they are ready!!
