These are one of my favorite pair of nice jeans. I love wide leg pants. They are so flattering on anyone who wears them, and when they hover just above the ground, they make your legs look miles long. This pair is high wasted (but not too high wasted), which is great because it sucks everything in! I'm also obsessed with the feel and color of this silk top. It's so easy to dress up or wear casual. (I'm just realizing how massive my badonkadonk looks in the last photo! Goodness gracious.)
As a new blogger, I'm learning a whole lot. There are SO many things I want to improve: my blog design, the quality of my pictures, the quantity of outfit posts, my stupid faces, etc. There are so many amazing blogs that provide great motivation and inspiration for improvement. I love scouring my favorite blogs and finding the first post. It's fun to see the difference between when they started and where they're at now. What I haven't seen a whole lot of are stories of the troubles, difficulties, etc. they have encountered as bloggers. For instance, I'm finding it difficult to snap outfit photos when the lighting outside is right! I'm either not home yet or no one else is home to take the photos for me. Of course, I could always take indoor photos, but the lighting doesn't always work then either. The photos above were taken in the warehouse of my dad's business. It would have been cool, but the huge florescent lights aren't exactly conducive to photography...or at least I'm pretty sure they're not. Anyway, just take one look at my eyeballs. They look puffy and gross. Maybe I'm just blaming that on the lighting and it's actually what my eyes look like. But the point is that I wish there were more stories of the struggles bloggers' have faced...that way I don't feel so pathetic! Ha. I hope you don't mind, but I plan on sharing the difficulties I face both so I can look back and remember and in case anyone else is dealing with the same issues.
I hope you all have a lovely Wednesday!
