I woke up this morning to the fresh air, the sun shining, flowers blooming. Little birds helped me get dressed. Everything was perfect and it was a beautiful day… and then… I had to go to the dentist. Womp, womp.
That was dramatic of me. I didn’t even really have to go to the dentist. I chose to get a little problem fixed, before it became a bigger problem. Because I’m a preventative type of girl, like that.
Aside from my non-dramatic dentist visit, my week looks pretty nice. And, I’m going on my first little beach trip of the season in a few weeks, so I’m getting excited about that already! I think I may be the biggest over-planner/over-packer in the world. Of course, when I say over-planning, I don’t mean that I have planned events and scheduled times to be everywhere. No, I mean I’ve planned every outfit out, down to the earrings, and I’ve packed every makeup and beauty product that I own for a two-day trip. I don’t know where we’re going or what we’re doing when we get there… All I know is that I plan to look cute doing it.

Sometimes, taking outfit pictures is kind of like real life. Having pictures of my looks has really made an impact on lots of different areas of my beauty and style routines. Looking in a mirror isn’t the same as seeing the look in pictures. Sometimes, proportions can get all weird, or you’re just wearing the wrong shoes, or the addition of one piece of jewelry would completely make the outfit. And, for me, I sometimes wouldn’t have known without photos to review. Sadly, I’ve had outfit photos that never got posted to the blog. I like the outfit in real life, but it just doesn’t translate well on camera. So, by, “taking outfit pictures is kind of like real life”, I guess I mean, that in real life sometimes you wear a dumb outfit and don’t realize it looks completely wrong until later, after you’ve worn it. Hindsight is 20/20 and so are blog pictures.
