In case you haven't noticed, I haven't post any outfit pictures on here for a long time. My last actual outfit post was in June. I've traced it back to three reasons.
1. I can't do self-portraits with my new camera. It just doesn't work, and I've been too lazy to order a remote. And too lazy to find my old point-and-shoot, not to mention that the card for that camera isn't compatible with my Macbook.
2. I love choosing outfits, but since I work with a group of people of my age and interest in clothing, there is less of an urgency to come home and post "look! I got dressed today! In new and exciting ways!" as there was when I was working from home.
3. I love most of my outfits. Because they're me.
I found the more blogging I did, the more I was co-opting other's styles as my own. And now that I'm wearing clothes that genuinely feel like me, I don't feel so inclined to share them. They're not daring, they're not avant-garde, they're me.
Don't get me wrong - every time I wear my maxi dress (which is often, if you ask my mother who almost staged an intervention after only ever seeing me wear it), my new black dress, my awesomely thrifted red pencil skirt, or my animal print wedges (which I promised ShyBiker I'd photograph a long long long time ago, and I'm a horrible person for breaking my word!), I do feel a twinge of guilt and remorse for not sharing my latest thrifting finds. The outfits will likely come back at some point.
But in the meantime, I'm enjoying dressing me for me. And for me, I'm most
*Of course, as I write this, I realize that I do sound a bit like a stuck record, having mused much the same here!
