OOTD - Trying Too Hard

Sometimes, I have outfits that I put together that sound great in my head.  But, in real life, they almost feel a little too costume-y.  Like this, for example:

Now, I actually really like all the pieces of this outfit, but all together?  It just feels a little too "contrived fashion-blogger-ey" to me!  But, the advantage to all this?  I get to try out my "contrived fashion-blogger-ey" posing skills!  Like the "what's in my hair?" pose:

Or the "what's on my shoes?" pose:

Of course, you can't forget the "what's over there?" pose!

Also important: Blue Steel.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to attempt to perfect my "everything is awesome and I'm so happy" pose.  It might need a little work...

    1. Thanks! I told a friend recently that its not that I don't love all the pieces of this outfit, but to me it looks like I googled "how do I dress like a fashion blogger" and then just copied what I saw... it's a cute outfit, just not quite 'me'


I'd love to hear your input!
