A Stab At an Outfit Post

I used to look at certain personal style bloggers and couldn't help but be jealous. Not necessarily of their outfits you see {ok who are we kidding about that}, but their courage in actually posing for pictures. It just seemed so scary. But then I did my own "shoot" in my new Asos number and I didn't know why I was so worried. I am a natural!

Oh hello...I didn't even realize the camera was on me for this.. that's how good I am
better yet, an extremely artsy pose of Annie and I..move over Rumi Neely
Asos Mirror Floral Shell, Skirt Christian Louboutin Peep Toe Pumps
In all seriousness, doing semi natural poses while showing off your clothes, handbag, shoes and the obligatory arm party all at the same time is difficult..and not normal! It's like if someone told you to get up on stage and belt out I don't know, a Mariah Carey song. Chances are that unless you are gifted in some way or completely in love with yourself, it's totally unnatural and is pretty effing embarrassing to put yourself out there like that. Obviously this wasn't a real shot at an outfit post, but I promise when I really do it...and I hope that it's soon...I will try not to look weird or take myself too seriously

I am OBSESSED with you. I feel the same way. I just can't do it. I am too painfully awkward. You girls looks so beautiful in that picture!

I laughed out loud at your first picture! I feel the exact same way as you, it's so unnatural. Love seeing what you wore, the dress is gorgeous on you!

You're not alone! I hate taking outfit photos. My husband doesn't know how to take ones that look fancy, and I always end up looking like I have the world's largest arms even though they're pretty average. Yours is great ;)

Ha ha I know! I'm trying to get up the courage to do it again. It ain't easy. Ignorance is bliss, right?

I love both of these poses, however! Esp. the blue steel.

Best OUTFIT POST EVER. HANDS DOWN. Work the blue steel darlin. From the looks of this photo, we are separated at birth. I know we are besties through steph, and if her personality says anything, you and I were meant for one another.

in all seriousness, your outfit is banging, so I would say outfit post success!
