I wore this outfit to church recently and love it. I scored the skirt and cardigan a few years back at Goodwill and have worn some combination of this outfit a number of times. This outfit has also been pinned more than anything else too. I felt great wearing it and got a number of compliments, but I almost didn't write this post. Why you might ask? The pictures....they aren't great. It was really windy and I snapped a few pictures quick before giving up and going inside. I can't tell you how many times I've felt great, taken pictures, then trashed them because I just wasn't happy with how they came out. It's so silly, right? I'm not a professional or model, I'm a girl with a tripod and a clicker.....and this is a hobby.
I feel like I can put unrealistic expectations on myself when it comes to this little hobby. I don't plan to ever do different locations shoots, even though I know it could increase my audience, because I don't have the time, and this is not my profession. I put together outfits I feel good in, then I take pictures and post them on the internet. Yeah. Perfection doesn't exist and it's not fair to myself to make that the goal. Another little known fact to those of you who only know me from the internet: my hair only looks "good" for about the first ten minutes after I'd done it and by the end of the day my makeup doesn't look so hot either. There you have it. So, here are four of the seven or so pictures I took, in an outfit I love and felt good in, and that's why I started this blog in the first place.
