Last week I was asked the following question: 

Jamie has left a new comment on your post “The View From Above”:

I love these ‘View From Above’ posts – they’re super inventive, and I haven’t seen any other bloggers doing the same. But because you’re so diligent in posting what you wear each day, I wonder where you find the time to wear all of these extra outfits… Would you mind sharing what qualifies a look of the day post vs. a View From Above? It’s a question that’s been plaguing me for some time 😉 

To begin, let me give you a little background. For starters, I work at an out of industry job (shocking, I know). My hours are generally 8am to 6pm which leaves me little time for outfit photos. Either it’s too dark at night (and I’m too sweaty from the subway) or it’s too early in the morning for the BF to wake up. In those cases, I tend to take “view from above” photos (with my old school blackberry) before I go to work. If it’s an outfit I particularly love, I rouse the BF from his slumber, and endure his scalding looks, so he can take pics of me in the morning. 

I always try and take as many pictures as I can on weekends and vacations because that’s when I have the most time for available shots. 

I hope this answers some of your questions! I love answering these, so please feel free to continue to ask away. Needless to say, I ain’t shy.
