here's the thing about blogging-- it takes any self criticism that we all have from the voice in our head, and it triples it. i like myself, i really do (i think i am sort of funny, and the right amount of weird) but that definitely does not mean that i don't harbor a great deal of insecurity. and lately the blog just does not help!

i guess it's an entire mixture of things, the main one being that looking at pictures of models/ stick thin 6 foot tall women in clothing that fits seemingly perfect can take it's toll. standing in front of that camera is not always fun. editing these pictures makes me nitpick myself to pieces, and lately i've literally just wanted to throw on this oversize plaid shirt and call it a day. maybe it's because of the extra few pounds that seems typical from the first few months of being married, or maybe it's self doubt, but doing this thing we call blogging is not always easy for me. i keep doing it because i love clothes, but here's an honest, oversized outfit that has been pretty typical lately. hopefully i can learn to love myself more and move on from this lazy tomboy phase that has struck me.

Adding cute frilly socks adds such a lovely touch to an otherwise plain outfit. to be quite honest, i don't know how anybody walks in NYC in heels. even in these loafers my feet hurt by the end of the day. but aside from adding a touch of style, the socks definitely help for comfort! i can't wait to wear socks in the beginning of fall, and slowly graduate to knee highs and then tights.

how do you feel about socks and loafers?
