WIWW…sometimes awkward happens

I started participating in wiww well over a year ago
I was challenged to get out of my pj’s and actually get dressed.
once I started getting dressed almost daily I was challenged to rethink my wardrobe.
I started adding color, and wearing new styles.
if you ask my husband, it’s because I like taking self pictures.

sometimes the pictures get taken in the most awkward places…
and sometimes it’s the outfit that’s awkward
or better yet my pose or facial expression

for example, this lovely church bathroom photo
trying to quickly take this before people think i am crazy

jewel tones

purple sweater- target clearance / pink pearl trimmed shirt- maurices (last year) / pink pants- kohls / chevron bag-made by me

now for awkward facial expressions…

pink pants leg warmers

you like the half smile / looking in the distance/ crooked lips

what about i don’t know how to pose without my hands on my hips
so i go with the broad shoulder football player pose..

here you have the “come on stop taking my picture” look
although it’s just me and camera timer! HA HA

everyone stands pigeon toed right?

gray shirt- gift from SIL / white tank, leg warmers-maurices / pink pants-kohls / necklace- made by me

and last but not least
sometimes we just need to take the shot
no matter what’s going on in the background

red and white striped t-charlotte russe / tank-maurices / cardigan-old navy / leggings-target / belt-goodwill / necklace-Bridget’s Boutique

    That last one was awesome!! So funny!! Pic with peeing toddler totally worth it for a snapshot of that outfit!

  2. Ahhh! I love this post. You are awesome for sharing these pics. I always wonder why I can strike the same pose as some awesome fashion blogger and look like a dork while they look so natural! Glad I’m not alone 🙂

  3. You’re super cute!!! Love the red stripes!

  6. Love that there is a peeing toddler in the background. That is so my fashion posts too. I take all my pics myself since my husband laughed hysterically when I asked him to take some for me! Love the leg warmers too! They look so comfy!
