Birds of a Feather

I almost didn’t post these photos today. This morning I was thinking that, since it’s the first day of spring, I would put on a floral dress in spring colors and be a vintage spring vision. But this sweater called my name. And then as I was taking photos and reviewing them in my camera, I started to feel extremely insecure about the silhouette. I rarely wear fitted silhouettes or waistlines that are lower than my natural waist, and what looked awesome in a mirror seemed to look a bit clunky and odd on camera.

I started to feel bad about my figure and my clothing choice, and the sun left, and it threatened rain, and I figured today’s photoshoot would just be a bust.

But then as I opened up the images in Lightroom and began to edit, I gave myself a pep talk. I noted how cute the sweater looks, and that I like my makeup, and my tiny waist, and by the time editing was done I was feeling good about it all again so here we are! Sometimes, it just takes a little bit of looking at yourself and saying “you ARE a cute human shut up brain pointing out the burger-baby-belly.”

Lately I have been thinking about how I used to post outfits five times a week, and that I really miss that habit. While I certainly have more things to think about now than I did when I was posting every day, I still think that it’s doable if I lessen my expectations for each post. Is daily style something you all would be interested in, given that I may only post one or two shots of daily outfits (and longer posts from weekend photoshoots) along with minimal text? Or do you prefer the longer posts and more photos?

As silly as it sounds, blogging is what helps me get “dressed up” most days. If I’m not blogging, I’m in yoga pants, and I really want to break out of that habit. It’s not hard to wear a skirt or dress daily, and I don’t own much that can’t be easily washed. But if I don’t have to take photos, sometimes I forget that getting dressed like this is a form of my personal self care, and I just don’t bother.

So, would you all be interested in shorter, quick daily-outfit-snap posts mixed in with my longer more “professional” photoshoots? If so, I may start trying to do that again! I need to have less expectations of what I “have” to do blogging. I often get hung up on not having the right detail shots, or not being in a fancy location, or not getting enough full body shots for a post, and that’s just silly! Blogging has always been a fun way to share my style, so whether or not I have all the shots I’m “supposed” to have, I would love to post more.

This post is a good example of a photoshoot that didn’t get every shot I usually take; I didn’t photograph ANY detail shots in my frustration. Cropping is all I have for details today!

Please let me know if daily style snapshot posts interest you!
