I have been trying to be consistent on my blog since my son E was born. Trying to get outfits shot, trying to get out of the house to get outfits shot, and then write. I even told myself, if nothing else just do outfit collages. And that proved a hard task to manage. Why? Well, having a new born and an Autistic 4yr old, as well as hubby to manage is a lot of work. I am still trying to catch up on laundry. The house is in chaos, and it drives me mad! I hate hearing do not worry about the mess, I can not do that. Blame the zodiac for that, Cancers typically love a tidy home. And I have a messier than a big pig’s sty home. And as far as sleeping when the baby sleeps, I was making that a goal this time. But, when I fall asleep it is time to pump, go get my son from school, or something else needs my attention.
So, when we went to the zoo I figured I would get some pictures of this outfit shot. Little did I know at the time that my shorts, hem would get caught on the stroller and come undone at the bottom. So, when I shot all those photos, with on looking otters and humans, I didn’t see all the weird angles of the shorts until after the fact. UGH. I looked through my camera while my son oooh and ahhh over his otters. Only to deem all 80 of the photos done for, as I looked so awkward and not so put together it was painful. Painful to look at, and that prompted me to retake them. I retook all the photos only to toss about well all of them but a small handful of 5 pictures. Reason being I was so stiff, such a weird situation and I looked so uncomfortable in all the pictures of me standing. Why? I was holding the hem of the bottom of my shorts up. Linen shorts are not kind with wrinkles and with hems coming undone. Add the fact they are also white and it is beacon so bright that Gondor is coming to help hold them up.
I already felt weird and such with having such low self esteem about wearing shorts. I am not exercising yet and so I feel all lumpy. This Diane Von Furstenberg shirt I wore was at least good.( another find from The Real Real) It is a light weight silk top and I love how it looked with my white shorts. The white linen shorts that were fine in the morning and not so much in the afternoon.
Have you had days like this? Got to love Murphy’s law, right?
