"Baby's got her blue jeans on"

This post title is after one of my favorite old country songs. I have many a'memories singing along and struttin' my stuff (on the porch) to this jam when I was just a little tyke. (Why do I think you did the same thing, Amber?)
So, on rare occasion when I slip into a pair of blue jeans, you can bet this song is playing in my head, making my ensemble go -again, in my head- from casual to "Hey, hey, sexy betch coming through." haha Ohhh.
Shirt: Urban Outfitters// Jeggings: American Eagle// Seychelles Clue Heel: Endless// Satchel: Thrifted// Beanie: old
the smelling-my-pits pose
About this extreme close up: I told Mikey I wanted a head shot [at a distance]; he took this face/headless shot. I was like "noooo" when I looked at the picture. I hate closeups. Why? Because I get self conscious about my bad, oily skin, huge pores and I don't have photoshop. Buuut I looked at it again and was like, "Screw it. I'm happy, healthy, I love my smile (even though I have a little lipstick on my teeth!), and bad skin or not, I love me. All of me." There's enough people in the world (usually hiding behind their computer screens) being so harshly critical of one another...why do it to yourself?!
Confidence feels good, but I will forever battle with just enough shyness to keep me on my toes :) 
I hope you ladies are having a fabulous week...and smiling beautifully through it! xo <3

  2. Oh my gosh! Your shoes are amazing! I know what you mean about sometimes lacking confidence because of bad skin or a horrible hair day, but I think you have a wonderful, friendly smile and gorgeous eyes and should be proud!

    1. Thanks, Rachel. That was so incredibly sweet of you. I wish we weren't so hard on ourselves as girls. But alas, a bad hair day can bring my whole day down. haha :)

  8. Hahahaha I like how "headshot" translates to "LOOK AT MY FAAAACCCCCEEEEEEEE" in Mikey language. Funny. And what a lovely closeup it is! So pretty all the time. Anyway you are looking amazing as always, so jealous of your curls!

    1. LMAO! Riiiiight! I scolded him afterward on the exact thing. And thank you, I love my curls. I'm only a bit pissed with myself for having damaged them so much with the flat iron. They don't quite curl like they used to.

  12. Hi, I think you're adorable. I was the girl in today's street style post on the ModCloth blog and I appreciate your sweet comments. Great blog! I'll definitely be stopping by again soon.

    1. Hi, Desiree! Thank you for stopping by. :)
      And no problem. I just couldn't figure out why there were unnecessary things being said. I have issues with people who like to knit pick and spread their negativity or find things to endlessly complain about. I all around thought you looked simply beautiful. And how awesome is it to be stopped by ModCloth?! I hope to hear from you again soon. And if you have a blog, I'd love to follow back. I just didn't see a link for it when I clicked on your picture.

    1. Gee thanks, Allison! :D I think it must be a guy thing then....they're so inconsiderate when they take our photos. Like, did you not see this ugly pimple? Snap from my good side! hahaha I agree, I don't think they're being malicious, I think they just don't get it! We're girls. We're so much tougher on ourselves than they could even imagine.
      Thank you!! ♥
