winter shorts.

I love how snow looks in photos, but however pleasant it looks here, taking these photos was not at all glamorous. It was SO cold today and also snowing, so I literally ran out of the car in 4+ inch heels, shed my coat, and stood here for about two minutes trying to look pretty (mind over matter, mind over matter). Why I'm telling you this, I don't know. Shouldn't I be pretending that I have the most glamorous lifestyle ever? But this brings up the non-glamorous side of blogging... We're expected to have perfect hair and makeup, wrinkle-less clothing, impossibly tiny thighs (like how do some gals not have inner thighs?!), and new trendy clothing items and accessories for every post. By the time I'd been been pelted with snow flakes 3 or 4 times today, my curls had fallen out, and I had a weird piece of hair sticking out on one side (UGH). 

Despite these things, I absolutely love blogging. And I can't wait to have more time to dedicate to it after I graduate in 2 1/2 months. Graduating in 2 1/2 months?! Terrifying. But so exciting.

Anyways, I hope you're having a great weekend so far, and that the weather is better where you are than where I am.
xo,
Jacy

  1. first of all, i know exactly how you feel. the big main photo on my site was from a photoshoot i did in northern california in the dead of winter in the snow wearing nothing but a spaghetti strapped practically backless wedding dress. im suprised i didnt get hypothermia. second of all, you may be numb in these photos but you look nothing shy of absolutely beautiful. that blazer is the perfect fit/cut/spring staple and how cool is that printed skirt?! hope it gets warmer for you soon, soaking up the sunshine in socal for you! xo

  20. I love the snowy look too - but I'm sure it makes photos even more difficult. Sometimes I'll get ready to take pics and hate the outfit or the way my hair is laying, I totally get it.
