// Lack of confidence. I take my own photos, and I love doing that. (Self-timers and tripods, ftw.) But I hate going out and taking photos of myself, in public, alone. I can pose for myself for hours, but not with an unintended audience. I could pull it off if I had a partner-in-crime, but I'm equally too shy to ask anyone to join me on my fashion-photo adventures.
// Laziness & business. If you know me at all, you know I take on too many activities, AND I procrastinate. Blogging takes time, but it takes more time when you are designing outfits, taking 20-30 photos, editing said photos, and then writing the blog post.
// Honesty. I don't want to pretend I know about fashion, or that I think I'm a valid fashion blogger. I'll leave that to the experts--and there are many!
But, even given all that, I have many more reasons to do outfit posts.
// It's fun and boosts my confidence. When I have bad days, I take selfies. I usually then move to self-portraits. I'm not photogenic, so the best way I know to look happy and normal in photos is to be silly. And take about five million shots so enough turn out okay. This makes up for a lot of time distracting me from my stress and reinvigorating me.
// It challenges me. Taking outfit photos requires me to think of new outfits with what I have, often leaving me much happier with what's already in my closet. These sorts of posts also challenge me to step out of my comfort zone a little bit.
// Often, it forces me to be a goofball. Sometimes, you do have to force yourself to laugh. Even a fake smile can boost your mood :)
