On Being Real

{Shirt: Banana Republic / Sweater: J.Crew Factory / Skirt: GAP / Shoes: Banana Republic (similar) / 
Hat: Thrifted / Necklace: Gifted}

Armed with an appreciation that some outfits work better in theory than in actuality, I decided to post this outfit. I don't think there's anything wrong with it per se, except for the discrepancy between my original vision and the photos (and maybe that it looks like I have no eyes!). 

In an effort to not be one of those fashion bloggers who don't post outfits they're not thrilled with, or post ones they didn't actually 'wear', except to pose for photos, I do post (albeit, sometimes hesitantly) outfits that I might not be thrilled with or love how they came out. 

I think part of the point of being a personal style blogger and documenting day-in-and-day-out-outfits is that some days you feel like a million bucks when you step out the door and somedays ya' just gotta get dressed and go, not quite feeling like the best version of yourself. Well here is my real life not-quite-the-best-version -- but definitely the real version!

Here's to tomorrow looking up:)
