    clean, simple, inside wall. In any case, its always better when we can see it on a human rather than laid out flat.

    I like a mix actually. I’m a fan of bleubird blog. She does a bit of all. Nothing gets old, but the style of photo is consistent. You’re cute, so do whatever!

    I like #4 followed closely by #1. I like laid out on a flat surface because that’s how I decide what I want to wear in the morning, just lay stuff out on my bed and mix and match. Seeing it online, I can picture it on myself and others.

    On a person. I like to see how an item is styled or how it falls on the body.

    My favorite is #3. I really like them all though. I love style posts!

    Definitely number 1. The simple backgrounds puts the outfits in the spotlight, and I’m not distracted by the surroundings.

    I like 1 the best, and 4 second best.

    3 or 2 but ideally a bit of each to mix it up!

    #1 is my favorite, followed by #2.

    #1. I love seeing clothes on a real person rather than a size 0 model. #4 is also fun to see how you would style something and features the photographers creativity. Can’t wait to see more style posts!

    2 is my least favorite. All others are good.

    I like #1, like others have said I like seeing clothes on an actual person. It helps me visualize what they could look like on me.

    A mix of the lot but I agree with what Faith said about how I choose my outfit by laying it out so would be great to see them that way

    I like a mix! I guess #1 and #4 the best bc I csn focus more on the clothes, but variety is fun. Love you and your style!

    I love #4 for Instagram, but on blogs I prefer to see the outfits on someone. I don’t care what the background looks like as long as the lighting is bright and consistent.

    I love the around town look – it makes the outfit seem more “real” and achievable if that makes sense!

  • Hannah Elizabeth

    I agree with Heather! I am drawn to seeing real life outfits out on the streets. Makes the outfits seem natural. I especially love your style posts bc they show outfits normal women would wear as opposed to some fashion blogs that show things So fancy I typically wouldn’t wear them or wouldn’t work in typical everyday life.

    #1 puts a nice focus on the clothes. I prefer seeing the clothes on rather than laid out like #4.

    I definitely prefer to see clothes on a body… But as for the background I kind of like a variety! If I was forced to pick a favorite I’d go with #3… I think those are the cheeriest. ☺️

    #3!!

    I’m torn between #1 and #3. A mix sounds nice :).

    I like number 1 and 2 equally…the others are fine, but not my preference.

    I’m a sucker for #1 and #4. I tend to get a bit distracted by outdoor photos much of the time, so it can be kind of hit or miss for me. Despite the photos in #2 not being my faves, I do really like the ones you’ve posted as examples. If you can’t tell, outfit pictures that are minimal appeal to me most. (: I found some great inspiration in all of these though!

    #3 for sure. Much more interesting and ‘real’ with a lively background than a plain wall.

  • Ashley
    February 26, 2015 at 9:57 pm

    Around town. But I do appreciate the aesthetic of the clothes laid out in a nice way.

    I like #1 or #3 the best. I also like your old selfies!! :-) I appreciate #4, but it definitely helps to see it on as well. I’d also love to see an outfit three ways, like you used to do with your sloane necklace and other pieces.

    3 and 4.

  • Katie
    February 27, 2015 at 8:12 am

    I like them all, but I LOVE 4, then 2, 1, 3

    #1 or #4- they are both all about the style! :) xo

    3# or #4! I like a bit of background and more color and layers in photos…makes it interesting and a bit more like real life!

  • Heather Luna

    I love the mix of 1 and 2. :)

    So fun. #1 #2 & #3 ! — I like to see it on.

  • Erica T

    Probably #1 or #4 but I probably would lean more towards wanting to see it on, without much clutter in the photo.

    I don’t care about background but as others have said, I prefer to see the clothes on a person to give me an idea of how it all fits together.

  • Elizabeth
    March 2, 2015 at 11:46 am

    I like options 1, 2, & 3. I prefer to see the clothes/accessories on the person and how you style them instead of just laid out flat. It is more inspiring that way!

    Clean, simple inside wall (or 1-3, really. but on a person and not flat)
