truth serum

{ What I Wore: J.Crew polka dot blouse // ModCloth mint jeans // Cole Haan tennis shoes (similar) }
I think one of the blog questions I get asked most frequently is, "So, do you actually wear that?"
And the answer is YES!
I would say 80% of my "what I wore" posts feature outfits I have worn either the day that I took pictures, or "re-enacted" a few days later (due to weather conditions, time crunches, a bad hair day, etc.). 

The other 20% of outfits are things that I AM going to wear in the near future (i.e. I take outfit photos on the weekends & then have my outfits planned for the next 5 days) or outfits that I photograph & then keep in my pocket as potential future looks.

I don't make up outfits in my room & run to the alley to photograph them.
This is me, trying to figure out my personal style, pulling back the curtains to let you have a peek in on the behind-the-scene-action as I go.

Not all outfits make it to the spotlight on the blog. 
And you can actually see many of my #ootd on Instagram
(including this outfit from last week!)

P.S. Did you see the gorgeous Gemmy Junky necklace we are giving away?!

  9. I love the top - I have the grey dot version. I take my pictures every morning and so I have a ton of photos in drafts since I don't post daily. I kind of started taking pictures (before blogging) to see how long I can mix my clothes without repeating an outfit. Love your outfit!
