I decided, because it is still technically winter (although lately here in Los Angeles it feels more like summer with temperatures into the nineties!), to go with a more subdued color on top. In this case it is a dark maroon wool sweater. The subtle color of the top and my nude shoes allows for some experimentation with more colorful accessories. In mixing some neutrals with neon I hopefully avoided looking like a walking box of crayons!
I also was presented with a variety of options regarding backdrops. Unfortunately, the sun was out in full force the day of these photos, which made for some awkward shadows. Although this limited my backdrop choices, I was given two really good ones. I couldn't decide between the colorful bicycle racks, which happen to match my skirt, and the citrus mural that also matched my skirt. As you can see, I selected both. Why not take advantage of as many options as you can?
