Things aren’t always black and white.
Blogging is a very funny business. I feel like as a group we (as bloggers) get looked down upon because most of our content is just photos of ourselves. My favorite comment OF ALL TIME happened when I mentioned that I was a fashion blogger at a wine dinner. Now keep in mind this was after about 4 glasses of wine, which is usually the amount required before I feel comfortable talking about it. After hearing what I had said, someone responded with “you’re not one of those a$$&*%@$ who takes photos of themselves, are you?”
…. pause for effect ….
After a very large gulp of wine, I answered their pithy question. “Yep. I’m one of those a$$&*%@$.”
Now I don’t blame people for initially feeling that way about bloggers since we’re always portraying that our lives are just perfection, when they really aren’t. I do feel extremely lucky to be doing what I do, but most days I’m operating on only a couple hours of sleep and trying to remember what day it is. I’ve actually thought about sharing some of my ridiculous stories. Would you be interested in hearing them? There is one about the guy who was obsessed with me wearing turtlenecks. But maybe that one should just stay buried…
Let’s move onto the important part – the outfit!
I’m just loving Yumi Kim‘s bright fun prints, like this dress I featured last month. While I’m trying to branch out and wear more color, my heart will alway be true to all things black and white. This dress features that favorite palette of mine popped with just a hint of color. Shop this print in her other styles here and shop this outfit below!
