Outfit Inspiration (Times Thirteen!)

Hey there! I decided to give you a little taste of my train of thought this morning:

"Oh, hey blog. Long time no see. Ugh...I can't write a blog post now, can I? It's been way too long! Plus, my outfit photos are awful - dark, grainy, hard to make out. Maybe Santa will bring me a Nikon. Whoa, this Vanilla & Cinnamon tea from TJ's is ridiculous. But anyway... it's Friday. No one reads blogs on Fridays. Except me... I read blogs on Fridays! But even if anyone reads it, they'll see the blue Ikea bags in the background of the photos or my awkward posing. Selfies, seriously? Almost 30 years old and I'm taking selfies? Maybe there's a class on taking a legit selfie. I'd sign up. I look drunk in this photo. What can I make for breakfast..."

It goes on. I'll spare you the rest.

After reading all that, it may come to you as no surprise that I can be hyper-critical and judgmental of the content I produce, whether it's through a personal outlet like this blog, or through my professional copywriting work. Sometimes this eye for detail is a huge asset for me, and other times (like this morning) it's a weight, holding me back from just putting myself out there.

Luckily (gratefully), I'm also hyper-aware of this nagging voice of criticism in my head, which is why I was so happy to finally welcome this thought when it appeared this morning, because it's the one that always wins:

"Oh, f*ck it."
