Sometimes the internet can be super annoying. Sometimes it’s super helpful and convenient and then others time it can foster some serious negativity and self doubt. I love blogs (clearly, as I have one) but for I love them for many reasons. I love the inspiration I get from them, the photos, outfits and ideas are endless. I love following along other’s bloggers lives even though I don’t personally know them. Some bloggers I have been following so long that I’ve followed them through some serious and major milestones. I also learn from them – such great resources and how-to’s out there. I don’t know the future of bloggers and blogging but I think we are here to stay a wee bit longer that’s for sure.
So where am I going with this? Recently I I met with a friend who graciously was going to take an outfit photo for this here blog. So I show up – my outfit idea was something simple, an oversized weekend casual outfit you may call it. I was going to talk about how excited I am to be wearing sneaks, and am busting out the felt hat for a little while longer before it gets too warm (is that even a thing?) to wear. So we step outside sans jacket (!) and snap a couple pics. We return inside and as I’m flipping through a serious realization comes over me – I LOOK LIKE WHOOPI GOLDBERG. From the hat, sunglasses, oversized top and converse. Like, I could not more look like her if I tried! My immediate thought was “I CANNOT share these pictures” and then for some reason I felt compelled to share them because my life or style is not perfect in any way shape or form. I legit wore this outfit for some reason and maybe I didn’t look in the mirror before I left but my style is always evolving and I just wanted to throw it out there that sometimes there are misses. I’m not striving for perfection, I’ll leave that to the models but I do try to put out my best (as everyone is online). Some bloggers choose the SAME THINGS and it’s like enough is enough you know?
Be different, be original – be Whoopi!
