Creating my happy life on the other side of fear.

Style: Poser

I LOVE clothes. Online window shopping is one of my favourite things to do in life. My pinterest board about clothes has the most pins of all my boards (I'm an avid pinner, another fave little pleasure). It's ironic really, since in daily life I wear scrubs for work and on the farm gumboots, old jeans and a hairy (from the dogs), smelly and ripped old jacket. So not much opportunity to dress up.

Maybe that's why I enjoy it so much? Because it automatically means fun times ahead, no work, no chores?
Who knows.

Anyways, when I started this blog I was so excited about outfit posts: Dressing up, putting on cute shoes, jewellery, maybe even make-up?? (I don't wear much make-up in everyday life - too lazy.)

But here is the thing: I absolutely cannot pose. Put a camera I front of me and I don't know where to put my arms, how to smile, what to do with my feet. My friends can attest to that: Tears have been shed in the past when I (slightly inebriated) was bemoaning the fact that they look so cute in pictures, and how they can do a hundred different poses, all adorable, while I feel like an ogre. You remember the Friends episode where Monica wants to get engagement pictures with Chandler? And he is absolutely incapable of looking decent in photos? That's me. I'm Chandler Bing.

The decent pictures that do exist are usually taken by a talented photographer who snapped me in-the-moment, before I had time to get all awkward.

But I'm determined to learn. For the love of clothes! I have good role models in my life (you know who you are!), I will continue to (enviously) study other outfit posts and pinterest pictures, and hopefully get better in time.

So here's a first attempt.

Dress and purse: Winners; shoes: PacSun; Necklace and bracelets: gifts
Happy Saturday!
