It doesn't matter how much you love your new poncho sweater matched with your favorite necklace or how comfortable the chambray and black skinnies you wear every day are or how awesomely your leopard loafers go with everything... if your in a cranky mood (brought on by a dooms day dentist appointment added to some girly issues or whatever it may be on any given day), and you're trying to take outfit pictures... this is all you're going to end up with. A cropped head and a downward glance with an awkward stance.
But why try to hide it? This is real life peoples.
I love dabbling in style/fashion on this blog and exploring new brands and trends. And I love sharing with you what I find and my experiences and reviews. But, there is an ugly side to it. The side that plays into my insecurities and vanity. I mean duh -- taking pictures every week of yourself and looking through them and picking out the best one... it's not really for the faint of heart. If you think I exude confidence then score one for me! You have fallen for my trickery.
I don't want the tone of this post to sound negative or ungrateful. I don't want to make some big drama and incur your sympathies. I do, however, want to be honest and to remind myself -- I am not defined by the clothes that I wear or the gray in my hair or the blemish on my nose. I do not have to size myself up to the "blogger next door" with a quadrillion followers and comments everyday.
I am me. A fearfully and wonderfully made me. Zero percent mistake.
