Silly little photos

So this post may look vain. Since it has all pictures of me. Well.. it is (and it isn't). It is, because these are all pictures of me, and dressed in some sort of outfit I deemed cute, and taking pictures of myself. But it's more than that. It's sort of about the way I feel when I have something on my body that I enjoy and feel good in. It's less about feeling like I need to live up to a standard, or care about the way people perceive me, or wonder why I take so many pictures of myself. It's not vain in the fact that in my heart, it's not about being obsessed with how I look, it's enjoying how this color or that color went together, or how this piece enhanced this one. It's not about the frilly things or the self-indulgent things, it's about does putting this piece of clothing on my body make me feel a little more sane? Yes. I give out 110% of myself in my day. Some aspect about it has to be about the way something makes me feel emotionally. And it's not as if I spend all day thinking about what I'm wearing, I've got things to do! This is inspired after my dear friend, Laura's post on outfits and how it can make you feel better - her posts got me out of my new mama rut two years ago. I am indebted.

So here's some of my favorite things to wear as they carry me through my hot summer days.
