I Really Couldn't Be a Fashion Blogger.

A few days ago, I had to get slightly dressy for a family gathering at the grandparents house and since I was already dressed up and had another hour to kill before work, I decided I would try my hand at being in front of my camera instead of behind it. And let me tell you - it's DIFFICULT. And awkward. Like, I really almost changed my mind immediately after my boyfriend started taking photos. However, I didn't, and made myself go through with the whole thing. 

Let me tell you - I have so much respect for all of the #fbloggers out there. How do you do it?! While it was fun to capture those few moments when I wasn't in my pjs watching Netflix all day on my couch, posing is just the most uncomfortable thing in the world. 

So for all you fashion bloggers out there, what're your tricks? How'd you get comfortable taking so many photos of the same outfit? Tell me your secrets!







dress // Wet Seal
vest // Wet Seal
boots // Forever21
earrings // Wet Seal

I guess it wasn't SO bad. But seriously. What're your secrets?

Happy Monday!

P.S. - Don't forget about the Mug/Teacup Giveaway and the Kate Spade Giveaway!

  1. First of all, these photos are SO CUTE!! You did a really great job! I think the only secret is practice. I am so super awkward in front of the camera and I HATE posing. I hate doing the shoots for my weekly style posts, but when it's all said and done, I love the photos and so do my readers, so I keep doing it. But it is still uncomfortable every single time. I think I am going to create a collaborative post about photography/blogger posing with my photographer to share some tips. He has helped me so much! Anyway, you should totally keep doing posts like this! I love it!!

  5. You're so cute though! I seriously love this. And I totally hate posing in front of a camera... I feel like such a dork. And when I go out in a public place and do it, I feel like I could just die from embarrassment. I feel like everyone's staring at me, when in actuality they probably couldn't care less... It's like middle school all over again! But seriously, I love this outfit, you are the bee's knees. :) xx, Elizabeth

    1. Thank you! And YES. Most places around here that I could go are super public, so I feel that pain. #awkward

      Thanks, love. :) You're the best.

  6. I told myself that I couldn't do it either when I did my first outfit post, and it's still awkward for me, because I feel like the contents of my closet just aren't as jazzy as a lot of fashion bloggers. But I still do it, because it's kind of fun to get dressed up and look your best. Practice makes perfect, I hope!

  7. oh my gosh you SO could be a #fblogger! It is definitely super awkward at first, the first couple of times I did it I wanted to give up halfway through too but now its become like second nature and its fun, its a nice excuse to get dressed up and it keeps me motivated to dress cute!
