camera shy

Skirt- GAP; Top & Earrings- Thrifted; Shoes- Spring
I liked this outfit in theory but executed not so much.  I think this thrifted top looked better when I was blonde and I had no good photos to choose from because I was feeling camera shy.  You know those days when you just feel kind of silly taking a photo of your outfit and onlookers are giving you strange looks and whispering to their companions? And then you start to wonder what is the point? No don't worry I never get that carried away, for the most part I love outfit photos (even though I'm not very photogenic I like capturing my daily outfits for inspiration or in this case never to repeat).

Oh and I switched another blouse I hadn't worn yet for this top.  I'm all over the place with my remix decisions this time around, during the winter 30x30 I stuck with my picks but now I'm swapping things left right and centre! It's no wonder I'm struggling to put together an outfit with all this confusion!

I do love these shoes though! And they're super comfy!

What about you- do you get camera shy sometimes?


  1. I personally think this looks really cute in the execution...I get camera shy too but I really like this on you, the ruffles on the top are so pretty and I think it looks really nice with your hair color.

  2. You've given me hope! Is it really okay to switch up items you haven't worn yet? And why am I even worrying about breaking the rules since I've ALREADY broken the shopping rule. I bought a marvelous maxi dress today and I am grieving to not be able to wear it until the middle of July. I may have to consider this switching strategy. I, too, have days I feel awkward and it shows up in the camera. I think I do best when I am comfortably taking pictures in my yard away from prying eyes. I agree with Courtney, I like your outfit, too. I think the lavender with the neutrals is creative! Debbie http://thriftygirlvintage.com
