What makes a perfect OOTD? Is it just the outfit, your pose, or your makeup? We have news for you, your background counts as well! To take the perfect picture, you need to have a “set” that will complement your outfit, as well as make it stand out. And what better venue to take a picture, than a cafe? 
We all know about Starbucks and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf - they have delicious drinks and snacks, but when you’re in the zone to take a little OOTD snap, you can barely move because they’re both so packed with people!
