ear off today. And since she’s one of my personal faves, I thought I’d talk
about something very important. As in world news, stop what you’re doing and
let’s discuss kind of important. Well minus the world news part….
great little group of readers (seriously they da best) I write all the time
about why I’m not a Big
Blogger and it never fails to resonate….Today I bring you a new
installment of things I’m not (among other things)….a Fashion Blogger…
public. I actually rather enjoy dressing up and looking pretty. I even started
wearing lipstick, what! Getting compliments on my outfits or walking with the
confidence of a diva when i know my outfit is on point. Those things don’t
necessarily transfer over to a blog though. Unlike my lovely and talented
lifestyle/fashion friends (Jenn anyone?)
I just don’t walk in the light…..
like a hobbit do I not? I really don’t know what i was thinking with this one.
Ignore the bare feet and focus on the patchy grass behind me or perhaps the
utter lack of being able to see the dress. Also I need to start doing more
push-ups I’ve decided…..
rock a mean pair of yoga pants or jeans but post worthy they are not. So when
it does happen I have to make sure to snap a photo…..so like once every month
or so. Also said outfits get brought out more then once so a months worth of
ootd’s would be pretty repetitive. At least I know how to mix and match right?
self-timer b/c otherwise I wouldn’t get half the photos I take for this blog. I
feel so awkward behind the camera as it is I don’t need anyone on the other end
to be subjected to it as well…Can someone tell me how to get full-body shots?
Or better yet, don’t, that way no one has to be subjected to them…..
no lie. I have to try really really, extremely hard to look “cool.”
You’ll never see a photo of me kickin up leaves or casually strollin down an
empty city street lookin like the cool chic that I believe I am. It’s just not
in the cards for me…Instead you’ll get me falling off a hammock or….well
I’m not really sure what i was doin in the above photo…..
“cool” enough to thrift either. Any item of clothing over
$30 is out of my price range (expect shoes or outerwear obvs) and even that is
pushing it. I really gotta love something to spend 30 bucks of my hard earned
(strapped) cash. That being said I’m not crafty enough to thrift something
hideous and turn it into a vintage crave-worthy item….This leads to lots of
Target and Kohls sales as well as TJ Maxx…I’m a Maxxanista!
I don’t know how they do it and make it look so natural. I’m so obviously
trying not to look at the camera! (below I was peekin to see what my timer said
what stock my makeup bag and even that is pretty empty. I’ve just recently
started wearing lipstick (shocker) so if anyone has tips for how to pick one
that doesn’t make me feel like a painted party performer I’d super appreciate
it, please and thank you. Despite my late bloomer status to the big girl party,
I really do like makeup I’m just horrible at it….practice, practice right?
continue this list for days. Despite my love of fashion and clothes I doubt
I’ll be makin that transition anytime soon Ever.
Anyone else out there with me?
