When Outfit Posts Go Wrong

Outfit posts can be awkward. First, taking pictures of yourself is an odd thing to do. Second, the notion of liking your own outfit enough to photograph it and display it for all of Internetville to see is even more strange. Third, was there something in my teeth and no one told me?!

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's more, but I'll spare you. Thanks a lot, wind.

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.

Skirt: J-Crew | Shirt: Ella Moss | Shoes: Zara | Necklace: Francesca's Collection | Earrings: Vintage

  1. Yet somehow you managed to look COMPLETELY adorable in these, still! It's hilarious when outfit posts go wrong. I actually got HIT by a kid on a scooter once–I only wish I caught THAT one on camera!

  2. I laughed aloud at this entire post - especially the captions. Ditto what Alyssa said - you manage to look adorable even while you are getting mauled by the wind. Girl, tell me how you do it!
