Confessions – I Am *Not* Fashion Blogger

I am aware of the things that I am good at, and the things that I am not. One of those things is posing for pictures. I don’t know how you fashion bloggers do it day in and day out! You always look so perfect and natural. I look like an awkward mess.

To give you an idea of what my blog would look like if all I posted was fashion, I thought it would be fun to take a look this Wednesday!

All photos were taken of the highest quality iPhone 5 has to offer. These are real clothes, bought at stores that you most likely shop at, probably on sale and worn by a no where near a size 2 person.


Like my $12.48 clearance dress from Target? Me too! It goes lovely with my $39.99 booties from Nine West. Pair it with a 3 year old $20 cardigan from the Gap and we have an outfit!


Hands on hip – check! Head tilt – check check! Here I am in a sweater from Nordstrom Rack (probably in the $30 range, because I am so edgy with the zippers on the sleeves, duh!). Ann Taylor Loft Skinnies and necklace (both from the outlet of course) annnnnd the most expensive pair of flats I would ever buy. Because I can walk in them all day and they don’t hurt my feet. (Cole Han at Nordstrom Rack for $89.)


Statement necklace from the Loft outlet $8, trouser leg black dress pants from JCPenney from about 4 years ago $36, sweater from Loft clearance rack $20, tank top by LC (Lauren Conrad) at Kohls clearance $12. Squatting to fit into the picture – priceless!


Here we have the Gap sweater and black pants from above pictures with two pieces off the clearance racks at Loft. This is my attempt at layering because every lace top needs glitter under it! Also, this is my best attempt at curling my hair. Notice it is half back, attempt unsuccessful.


Trying on a Michael Kors vest at Nordstrom Rack with THREE shirts underneath. Fun times. I went back for it, but it was gone 🙁


Here I am casually snapping a picture of my outfit in a fitting room trying to make sure my mom doesn’t see me do it. Then I laughed at how awkward I looked and showed her the picture anyways. The outfit totally came home, my attempt at dressing like Sex in the City.


Another fitting room picture. If it doesn’t pass the picture test it doesn’t make it home. This shirt was left behind.


And here I am looking all edgy. Or something like that. Top was a birthday present from Laura 🙂 The sweater is another Loft clearance pick. Seeing a pattern? Jeans from the Gap.

These next few pictures were for a post I was working on for Kristen but never finished. The infamous jean jacket styling!


Saturdays at World of Beer – Jean Jacket from Old Navy (I think $30) dress from JCPenney $14.99.


Gameday- Roll Tide! This dress is from Loft outlet for $20 and the necklace and bracelet were presents from my mom. She found them at Private Gallery.


Work appropriate – Just kidding I wore all three of these to work. Dress from Loft for $30, necklace from Loft $25 (both on sale.)

And there you have it folks. Why I could never be a fashion blogger!

Fashion Confessions in ecards because Wednesday

Anyone have this problem?

So true!!

Cute shoes are like a gateway drug. Once you have the shoes then you need the bag, the outfit, the accessories, the manicure... #ecard #funny

The Target curse.

I feel like a failure! I've been shopping for 20 years and I still don't have anything to wear.

    I’m with you, I could NEVER be a fashion blogger. On top of that, I usually ask my husband if I look okay to leave the house. Major sign, right?

  • Reply Kerry December 3, 2014 at 7:37 am

    I couldn’t be a fashion blogger either. I love your outfits though. The loft necklace in the last picture is very pretty.

    I couldnt be a fashion blogger either!!! BTW I love that cardigan and you did a GREAT job with the outfits!

  • Reply Ashley Nevis December 3, 2014 at 8:32 am

    Now this is a fashion blog I could relate to! Reasonably priced clothes that normal people can actually afford and look good in – I love it! I could never be a fashion blogger either – I repeat outfits way too much 🙂

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph December 3, 2014 at 8:36 am

    This is hilarious and so how I would be if I attempted to fashion blog.

  • Reply Laura December 3, 2014 at 8:46 am

    This is probably my favorite fashion post of all time. It’s damn hilarious and also, I love all your dresses. I need to start wearing more dresses. I could NEVER be a fashion blogger either unless it focuses on 38972 ways to wear yoga pants.

  • Reply Mree December 3, 2014 at 9:33 am

    I totally could never be a fashion blogger. I’m way too critical of myself and my outfits. Great outfits by the way!!

  • Reply Kateri Von Steal December 3, 2014 at 10:31 am

    I am with you – Fashion Bloggers – How do they do it?

    And you are so much braver than I am – – – There are sometimes I’m like “This looks good – I should show it off” and then I look a the pic and think – “UGH, so awkward”

  • Reply Helene December 3, 2014 at 11:39 am

    you may not be a fashion blogger, but you look gorgeous!!

  • Reply Jessi December 3, 2014 at 12:01 pm

    You could do it!!!!!! Also, old navy has a replica of that MK vest (black, light weight, quilted, gold detailing) but i don’t see online anymore, check your closest store!

  • Reply alyssa December 3, 2014 at 12:41 pm

    Yep, so not a fashion blogger over here either! I do enjoy a good #ootd on instagram every now and then though 😉

  • Reply Lynsey @ Eternally Wanderlyn December 3, 2014 at 1:18 pm

    I’m definitely not a fashion blogger. Half the time I’m just lounging around in pajamas. It doesn’t help that I work from home, so my work attire is also pajamas. Hah. Either way, you look fantastic in your photos! 🙂

  • Reply kristen December 3, 2014 at 1:23 pm

    first – keep working on curling the hair girl, that looks way better than when i started so i know you can do it.
    second yay jean jacket styling tips 🙂 you’re the bomb dot com. i will take that in lieu of the post you promised, jk.
    thirdly every single one of your outfits are so freaking cute, i can’t even. srsly. stop being so adorable.

  • Reply Julia December 3, 2014 at 1:30 pm

    You look fabulous in all of these! But I totally know what you mean, I could never be a fashion blogger because A) I’m not that fashionable and B) I am terribly awkward in front of a camera!

  • Reply tricia coniglio December 3, 2014 at 1:36 pm

    Polite as fuck!!!!! LOLOL That is so damn funny! I am def not a fashion blogger. It tried my hand at a few photo ops at that wedding/before the wedding but then the photographer must be good…. and he’s not. hahaa

    Ooops, went a little quick with the first one. Anyway, as a guy in the blogging world, it’s sometimes hard to find funny and interesting blogs — considering how many fashion blogs are out there. But… if they were more like this, I would read them because it’s funny AND real. Good stuff. I think you may have found a new niche! 😀

  • Reply Amanda | Glittericity December 3, 2014 at 10:04 pm

    Hahahaha, this post was great! You are beautiful, by the way. I like your sense of style too… And of course you’re hilarious as always. I think my blog counts as fashion (or beauty) but I can only afford to keep my fingertips stylish 😉

  • Reply kathy@vodka and soda December 4, 2014 at 7:38 am

    girl you are way ahead of me in terms of fashion. yesterday i wore sweat pants and a flannel shirt with uggs and thought i looked presentable. you are too cute.

  • Reply Joey December 4, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    I love this. LIKE LOVE THIS. It’s real clothes that I’d ACTUALLY wear! You should totally do more posts like this!

  • Reply Wendy@BlushandBarbells December 4, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    You’ve got great style! and I may or may not steal this blog post idea. Someday.

  • Reply Tracy December 5, 2014 at 3:22 pm

    OMG this is hilarious. I don’t read fashion blogs but this is one I would definitely read 😉 I have been wanting/meaning to post an update on my capsule wardrobe but haven’t since my pictures are so not fashion blogger level. I am DYING over that polite as fuck tshirt, I need that in my life!
