Bloopers: The terrible, the bad and the awful

BLOOPERS aka 99% of the photo’s we take for this little ole blog.  I started reading blogs 5-6 years ago and always thought about having my own blog.  It only took about 4 years before I (and by ‘I’ I mean my sister and Jeremy) actually pushed myself to start blogging.  While most of my posts contain of photographs of myself I think its important that you know I am SO AWKWARD in front of the camera and taking photo’s is one of my least favorite parts of blogging.  I know that seems cray since I have posted a bajillion pictures of myself on the world wide web for everyone to see but it’s the truth and probably the main reason I took forever to start my blog.  It’s still weird for me to post pictures of myself on Instagram every damn day but I know that the pictures are a huge part of fashion blogging.  In fact, when I started blogging I made Jeremy promise not to tell anyone we know because I thought people would think it was so superficial.  The reality is that I am super picky about every photograph I post because putting myself out there on the internet is WEIRD.  We probably take 200-300 photographs of each outfit and I cringe at 95% of them.  While I like to talk a tad about my person life (and hope to open up even more on here) my posts are largely fashion related and I personally don’t care much for reading someone blab about clothes without seeing pictures of them so why would I write a blog that way?

So now that you know how much I’ve struggled with posting photograph’s why not share all the cringe-worthy ones.  Obviously I have come a long way and can now only laugh about how ridiculous I look at times.  These are just too good not to share…

I like to sleep…a lot. No pillow necessary.

I was very pigeon toe’d as a child and my dad spent years helping me correct it, mostly by yelling at me ‘TOES OUT, TOES OUT.” He would cringe looking at these photo’s, sorry Dad!

I don’t have 99 problems, I have one…it’s my hair.

So, there I am in all my windblown, sleepy, awkward, cranky glory.

There’s nothing like going all out on a Thursday and publishing embarrassing photo’s of yourself. How you like me nowwwwww?! Props to you if you get my song reference because I like to sing that a whole lot and we should be friends.

Thanks for stopping by!

    LOL! Love how real this post is! I hate taking photos of my outfits because I feel funny in front of a camera. We get more shots of me with a double chin or looking awkward than I’d care to admit!

    OMG I Love this post!! Haha. My hair is the biggest problem in my pictures – especially my bangs that end up going up into a cowlick while I have a great pose. The other blooper i have is looking upset when the wind blows in my face lol! Which in the windy city is most of the time

    GIRL I so FEEL YOU!! I also hate taking photos of myself, it’s not my favorite. I also take probably 200 photos and pick out maybe 10 good ones to post to the blog. We make it look so effortless but #thestruggleisreal LOL – loved this post!

    Oh my goodness! I SOSOOOO love this post! So much truth here – I feel the exact same way! I am not one that actually likes to be the center of attention, and it took me two years before I told most people I even had a blog (aside from those closest to me), lol. I about had a panic attack when I recently started a Facebook blog page because I actually had to show people who really know me what my “little hobby” is, and because it is a bit superficial, I too was so hesitant to put myself out there. Funny to learn these things about one another as bloggers – I think most of us have the same types of fears! 😉 I love your photos too – but you seriously look cute in every one of them! Great post!

    OMG I feel this 100%. I still have not told major people in my life because I feel to weird about posting pictures of myself! And I agree, taking pictures is the worst part of blogging lol. Glad to see someone else saying it, but you look gorgeous even in the bloopers!
