As a blogger, I recognize this but have long since gotten over the mental hurdle of outfit posts for the sake of learning and sharing. I see style as something you practice and evolve. Sharing my personal style with you has definitely helped me to develop it more - I've learned that it's much more than having a good eye and feel that I've started to put pieces together better that I did in the beginning. I hope you agree. If not, don't tell me and let me keep trucking for your entertainment.
Back to taking pictures. Sometimes shooting for a post is super easy and takes 5 minutes. And, sometimes there's wind. Wind is the enemy of all style bloggers - it's a mischievous little devil that comes out of nowhere and says, "What, you think that skirt is cute? Ha-ha-haaa let's see how cute it is when your buttocks show!" The end result? Not cute. Marilyn Monroe may disagree, but her opinion is null and void as I'm 99.9% confident she's the only human being in existence who made wind-blown look good.
Case in point: My most recent outfit post. This was supposed to be titled "Transitioning To Fall" or something equally as mundane, but I figured the pictures were funny enough to share with you and give you a peep into the dreaded "When outfit posts go wrong" scenario that every blogger occasionally encounters.
|Not Marilyn Monroe. Or Michael Jackson.|
|Be-Boop-Be-Boop. I am a robot.|
|Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?|
There were a few salvageable photos from this shoot that I feel the need to share on behalf of keeping my dignity in tact. Oh, and one quick suggestion...when dressing for fall, wear tights.
