Polka Dots & Poor Lighting

We all know those fashion bloggers whose pictures are curated to perfection with picturesque backgrounds, perfectly styled coifs and ensembles. I think it's safe to say there's no need for jealousy over here. We're just basic bitches blogging. :-) From poor lighting (as seen today, yikes!) and windy days to accessories gone wild and my most recent comment "Help! My face has fallen and it can't get up!", we do our best to be authentic and share with our readers the trials and tribulations of the blogging world, along with some fun fashion on the side. As 8-5ers we are always rushing to get outfit photos taken over lunch before running errands, wolfing down our food and finishing the rest of our workday. Super fun right?

On another note–how adorable is this Rebecca Minkoff Satchel?! I got her during ShopBop's recent sale and I can say that I'm totally in love with the shape and color. The aloe tone is perfect for spring and definitely brightens up this black and white look. (Thank god, because thanks to a super overcast day our normally perfect brick wall spot was a little too shady for this girl's liking.)

  3. Can I just say, how much I loved this post--it's hilarious and SO true! (The title is also great!) For us bloggers that have an 8-5 job, it's so difficult to take those "curated" photos. Shoot...I just take photos against a white background in my garage and post them. I don't have the time...ha! Also, I love that top and satchel. Definitely something I'd want in my wardrobe!

    1. Ha! Thank you! Kacie and I default to the brick facade of our office building typically and have been making an effort to take more photos with actual scenery that isn't of the building variety. Thanks for stopping by! Definitely snag that top while it's $17, too!

  5. Ugh, bad lighting- I hear you! Such a bummer when the sun (or clouds!) doesn't cooperate! Your bright lip looks so pretty though; love it!

    1. Thanks Ashley! I'm a big fan of bright lips in general. I find myself totally buying lip color that is the same as the last all the time. It may be time for a change. Ha!
