Secretly Shy

As I connect with more and more fashion bloggers, I have found a common theme - we truly are shy people. I am a pretty quiet person until I really get to know someone. I have a handful of really good friends who I can talk to about anything. I am terrible at small talk and networking. I will say that having a kid has changed me a little bit - my friends have even told me they've noticed this. But deep down I am still that introvert.
You might think this does not make sense since this blog involves taking and posting pictures of myself! Posting the pictures is not a big deal for me at all, because it is more about the clothes for me - sharing my passion with people who have similar interests. Now taking the pictures is a whole other story. I try to go to not only interesting, but secluded places. If I happen to come across a stranger, I feel very awkward.
"Oh hey, don't mind me, I am just taking pictures of myself for my blog. It's about fashion."
You'd think in this age of selfies, that it wouldn't be weird. But come on, when you bust out a tripod it takes it to another level. Here, I am at home but even then, stuff happens.
"Damn, the neighbors are out again. They are going to think I am so weird."
Okay, enough confessions. On to the details:

Lilka "Tinted Floral Crops" - Anthropologie
(Yep, more of those wide leg printed pants I love. I got these at the end of the season last year for $9.99.)
Black Tank
Jean Jacket - TJ Maxx
Unlisted "Web Page" Wedges - Steinmart
Orange Perry Necklace - Chewbeads
(Jewelry that your little one can chew on? So cool. Even though Richard is long past his teething days, I just love this bright statement.)
Sunglasses - Zulily

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy!

I love the pants and the house as the backdrop! Gorgeous! I love the orange necklace. I never wore jewelry when my kids were little. I lived in my sweats. But I love the idea of the necklace being multifunctional. Good tip.

I am SO shy. I hide in the corner at social events. I agree that a lot of bloggers are shy people. I am so glad we met each other! Too bad we live so far away!
