Since I really tried with this challenge, I’d thought I’d share with you the photo, why I chose this book and how I took it!
Here’s the challenge:

Once I heard Laur was chosen for an Instagram challenge, I knew I was going to do it. One of my favorite covers this year is Christine’s book, Again, But Better. I really love the outfit of Shane on this cover and it’s definitely something I’d wear. When I woke up and saw the challenge, I knew exactly what book outfit I’d want to re-create. I mean, come on. I already had an outfit EXTREMELY similar so I decided to go out and take a photo. Mind you, I live in Florida and it was about 90 degrees outside. I had my boyfriend and my mom record videos of me walking back and forth, holding my bag and the book in the correct hands.
It was going to rain soon after this photo was taken so I had to wake up and just take the photo. I had several different edits chosen but I thought this one looked the best.
The editing process wasn’t really that hard. I just added the Again, But Better cover over my photo. Since our outfits are incredibly similar, it almost blends in. I’m quite proud of this photo because I tried really hard to get it to match. My Instagram theme is an entire mess right now but let’s not talk about it. At least my challenge photos are doing well and I’m proud of them!
