Today is one of those days where this blogging stuff feels a little silly.
Case in point: these photos for this post.
If I didn’t say anything about them, you’d probably think I got all gussied up and went out and did something hip and exciting like the cool young thing I am. But in reality, as you know if you are a frequent reader, I’m more of an octogenarian in a 20-something-year old body and of course I didn’t do anything cool while wearing this.
( ^ resting b*tch face. I’m a sufferer. Is there medication for this?)
Prep yoself for the following real-life glamour:
9:15 PM – realized I needed photos for this post, but obviously too dark
7:00 the next morning – got fancied up for absolutely no reason beyond getting photos
8:15 – put kids in car
8:17 – drove to empty parking lot
8:22 – quickly and embarrassedly took pictures with tripod and remote while children whined in the car
8:22-8:29 – glanced around awkwardly and pretended I was taking pictures of trees in the distance whenever someone drove by
8:30 – drove back home and changed outfits
But when you have brand new awesome striped skinnies, you must dress them up and blog about them, even if it involves a rather ridiculous morning of getting fancied up for absolutely no reason, right? Right? It seems I had no choice. And this sort of thing has made me wonder how often other bloggers are doing exactly this sort of thing—staging something just for the sake of a post, but not admitting it? Maybe we’re all just sitting at home eating cereal in our pajamas all day, setting up cutesy little scenes to instagram, pretending we’re leading lives of glamour and excitement? If Jeff and I can manage to get out of the house sans kidlets this weekend for our anniversary, maybe I’ll wear this, just so this post doesn’t feel so silly. There. Post justified!
Anyhoo, I’m a stripes sort of girl, through and through. Striped shirts, striped scarves, striped dresses, I’m in.
