Confession: getting dressed since having a blog has caused me to either A) take more time and effort in picking out my outfit and B) sometimes not take outfit photos when I don’t feel it’s a “blog appropriate” ensemble.  Lately I’ve been increasingly feeling like the latter, and if this goes on there won’t be any outfit photos at all!

And so I’ve decided to just be real about what I actually wear day to day even if I don’t feel like it’s “blog perfect” or if it took me all of two seconds to throw together like the outfit above. This is what I wore to brunch on Sunday with my husband; I originally paired it with denim cutoffs, but wasn’t feeling the way it looked so I settled for these wool plaid shorts…mainly because the mister was patiently standing at the door waiting for me…which happens more often than I care to admit (whoops!).

So here it is, my thrown-together outfit and undone hair, all for you lovely readers to see what really goes on some days.
