Caring actually isn't creepy. It's just that when I went to write this post, I was going to talk about 'caring' about what you wear and bam - that song title just popped into my head. And if there is one thing a blogger knows, it is that when inspiration strikes, one best go with it - it could be a while until it happens again.
I've mentioned before how I usually take some time once a week to lay out a bunch of outfits in my closet to keep me stocked up in case of a bad morning (or four). But to be honest, those outfits usually don't see the light of day. I've also mentioned before that I am an emotional dresser. I have to "feel" good in what I am wearing. Sometimes an outfit that I laid out in advance is suddenly boring and old-news just because it's been in my closet for a few days. Sad, but true.
So I usually just go with a bit of inspiration with the pieces I laid out and a bit of what do I feeeeeeel like wearing today. This outfit was a bit of both of those and a bit of "I don't care..." - but in the best possible way. It was like the perfect trifecta of pre-planning, spur of the moment inspiration and unbridled carelessness. Because, really, we shouldn't take our clothes SO seriously, you know?!?
On this particular day I had to pick my husband up from work... he works out by the airport, so it's all industrial and whatnot out that way... he even has these train tracks right behind his building. So it was a perfect spot for some quick pictures. Someone commented that they liked my pictures at home because it made me relatable as a mom. I get that. But I have a life and sometimes I bring my camera along on my life. That is usually how we get a setting like this. Not because I think let's 'create' a shot - not that there is anything wrong with that either. But this is my life. Nothing but.
Which reminds me of this quote that I love so much... very true for a blogger (or writer or any type of creative!)
I'm hooked on stacked bracelets lately... aren't they so fun!?!? I am hoping to hit up F21 soon to see what else I can find that is stackable as well.
