Lately, I’ve been trying to step up my blogging game because it’s something that I feel that I can benefit from in the long run. I was never the type of person to put myself out there and bring others into my life willingly but blogging has changed that for me. I’m still slowly coming out of my shell but day by day, it’s being cracked and peeled back a little.
I’ve always had a kind of wall around me. I don’t talk much and I don’t volunteer too much information about myself. Since joining the blogging community I see how freely some folks can speak about themselves and I so admire that. I hope that one day I can get to that point and I hope that this post is the start of that.
I’m also not the most photogenic person. I’ve never taken one shot and said “Boom, there it is!” But I am working on taking better photos. I’ve chosen to expose this part of myself with outfit posts and it’s forcing me to “fix my face” for the camera. If I don’t smile, I look like I’m pissed off at the world. Ha! If I smile too much, I can come off as being fake. Oy! But, I’m making progress and finding a happy medium. 🙂
I’ve been blogging for about 4 months now and I want to thank all my followers for welcoming me and for reading, or for just merely viewing my posts.
I hope that I can continue to put out good content and with time get better and better.
Now on to the outfit, all of these items except for the blanket scarf are things that I had in my closet. I love when I can find an outfit and put it together without having to go out and shop. I’ve never worn these pieces together and I must say that I love this look. These H&M ankle skinnies are one of my favorites. They fit perfectly and have a sleek look to them. I picked up this Forever 21 sweater last winter and tried them on on a whim and they worked with the jeans. I recently got the blanket scarf and it’s so soft – only downside: it sheds a lot of lint! I was constantly picking lint off my lips, haha. All day!
The booties are super old (my dad bought them for me years ago!) and I just love them. I’ll probably wear them until the heels fall off…lol. 🙂 As for the the jacket I’ve had it for quite some time and it’s still one of my favorites. I purchased it when I was pregnant with my first son and I have been wearing it ever since.
I hope everyone has an amazing week! Xoxo
