Soft Light

by Jen on Monday, January 16, 2012

I'd been itching to debut this lovely blouse (with pearl buttons on the back!) since receiving it from MontAffair a while ago, but since it's been way too cold here to stand outside without it being hidden under layers of wool, I haven't had a chance. A gorgeous (but chilly!) day last week provided just enough light inside and was the perfect excuse to facilitate an indoor shoot. Since I wanted to allow the blouse to stand out, I paired it with feminine basics, punching it up with just a few textures and patterns to keep the look from being too dull.

This top has since been sold out, but check out this pretty alternative! The site offers free shipping within Singapore and Malaysia and worldwide delivery for $10 SGD (about $8 USD).
Wearing: MontAffair top (c/o), Topshop trousers, BB Dakota jacket, Zara shoes


Love this, Jen! It's been so nice to see a bit of sunshine for once too, hasn't it?

What a cute outfit! Love the color combo (pale color mixed with your orangy like pants)! Those heels are amazing too! Hope you had a great weekend! :)

I will have to steal your idea and shoot some pics at home... it's just way too cold here these days! :o)

Your outfit looks fabulous!

It's nice, but I would like it more without the lace.

I know what you mean with the cold weather! It's been painful to go outside to snap some pictures lately :(

Love this look that you've put together, very simple and chic, and the lace detailing is gorgeous!

Love the blouse! Mont Affair carries such beautiful pieces.

This is such a beautiful look! The colour palette is amazing and that pop of leopard was the perfect punch of colour and print. The lighting in these pics is so beautiful, as are you! Hope you've been well love :)

You are so gorgeous with your getting dolled up indoors. The softly filtered light, the luxurious textures, the gorgeous clothing. I totally want to get dolled up to work at home, but unfortunately, I think my clothing would get ruined by all the cleaning agents and me working on my hands and knees to get the house spic and span! :)

You always show 'em how it's done, Jen! Love this.

You look wonderful!

Indoor photos can be so tricky with all of the different light sources, but these turned out so beautifully! I'm amazed you've held out on showcasing this beautiful blouse for so long, I would have gone out in the cold and probably caught a cold just to wear it :) But you're obviously much more practical than I am, and the wait definitely paid off. Love those shoes, too - the tweed is gorgeous.

Love the lighting on these indoor photos! :) Hope you're having a good start to your week Jen!

Your smile is one of the brightest I've ever seen. Love this post!

The lighting looks really nice in these photographs for an indoor setting; it definitely isn't harsh at all and it's quite complementary to the soft fabric of the blouse. The lace detailing at the hem of your blouse seems so delicate and intricate, it's like an extra accessory by itself. Hope that you have a good week!

by eggtartbox on January 17, 2012 at 1:06 PM. #

I need to learn from you how to capture such awesome lighting for indoor photoshoots! Looking amazing as always, Jen! I particularly like the camel trousers with the leopard heels. OBSESSED! :D

by Kristy on January 17, 2012 at 2:10 PM. #

Absolutely stunning, Jen! That top is beyond gorgeous, I'm sure you'll get some much wear out of it this spring! Also eyeing your topshop trousers, they're such a lovely shade and cut :) xo

by aliciafashionista on January 17, 2012 at 4:36 PM. #

The black lace trim at the bottom was a nice surprise!

by xJOLE on January 17, 2012 at 4:53 PM. #

The lighting was perfect for this indoor shoot!

by lisa on January 17, 2012 at 5:41 PM. #

Jen, i think that light dances in your presence! honestly, you have such gravitational pull and any brilliant beams would be sadly remiss not to take notice of those inherent charms.

what a lovely shoot, David right?! gosh....he's gooooooood! glad you had the opportunity to unveil your beautiful blouse - it's gorgeous! also stoked that you are in a cozy, warm nook for this shoot cos damn straight...the coldness outside is off the charts. hope your week is full of fun, enjoy! xoox ♥
