Headless Best

I never cease to be amazed how awful my attempt at outfit pictures can be sometimes. If I could just get over myself long enough to ignore the questioning looks while I pose for a picture all by myself, this would no longer be an issue. But I don't foresee that happening anytime soon. I feel like a vain fool, that's what. Any advice on how to overcome this self-consciousness would be appreciated.

This was one such incident on Sunday when I really liked what I was wearing, but regardless of the four different shots Elaina tried to get, none of them really turned out. The best I could do was crop me apart and remove my head entirely (sigh).

Not sure why it mattered so much. I wore this skirt much the same way here. Guess I was sort of proud that I mixed it up a bit with the red tights and wedges instead of boots. I don't recall ever wearing this skirt without boots. Also happy to get some use out of that funny flower pin I made out of felt and a vintage button.

In other Sunday news...I saw the new Sandra Bullock movie The Blind Side. I went expecting to see the typical underacheiver sport story, but this movie was hardly about football. It was really good. I was reminded of why I see movies in the first place. The story is so touching and I left inspired to be a better human being. Yeah.

That flower pin is too cute! I used to hate having my picture taken, especially if I was by myself in the shot. My blog has actually helped me come a long way in getting over this photo phobia of mine. I do still feel awkward sometimes, but it's not like most people don't get a picture or two snapped of them every so often, so it's nothing to feel self-conscious about.

I totally understand those feelings about taking your picture alone. The outfit pics are totally worth it, though.

I thought the same thing about the Blind Side! It was a really sweet story and I loved the pictures of the actual family members at the end of the film.
