It might just be me, but while going through these pictures some of them seemed sexier (yes I said sexier, I can say that now that I'm married) than usual. Almost scandalous. Maybe it's the hot pink lipstick. Maybe it's the studded heels. Or maybe it's the tousled hair, which was totally unintentional and the result of taking a long afternoon. Whatever the reason is, I'm totally okay with it.
Starting a fashion blog was really scary, I'll be the first to admit that. I've wanted to do it for years but I never felt confident enough to take the plunge. Photographing every inch of my body and taking close-ups of my face with a DSLR. No thanks, not interested. However, a couple of months ago I started working out again and lost 10 pounds. That little victory gave my the extra boost of confidence that I needed to start my blog. So I did; and I was so nervous. I was inexperienced and had no idea what I was doing. But, after practicing and getting more comfortable in front of the camera, I feel like I've definitely improved. I'm not gonna go try out for America's Next Top Model anytime soon but I definitely feel good about the pictures I take.
Another reason I was scared to start a blog is because I was scared of people leaving negative comments and critiquing me and my outfits. Luckily, none of that happened. Not even close! In fact, I have never even had someone leave a rude comment on my blog. In fact, I want to thank all you for your kind words! You ladies are seriously the best. Every comment that I read makes me smile and seriously makes my day! I even show some of your comments to my husband and I'm like, "Matt, this girl is so nice!! Look what she wrote. Isn't she the sweetest?!" We as readers and bloggers need to stick together and spread positive thoughts and comments to others on the internet, because if we don't have nice comments to make then we probably shouldn't make any comments at all :)
