This Is Why I'm Hot.

Day 17 || A Favorite Photo of Yourself and Why


____________________________________________


Want the truth?

I don't photograph well.

And I'm not saying that in an oh-but-really-you-do-photograph-well-you're-just-being-modest way. It's a legit person-of-Walmart kind of way. Don't even pretend you don't know what I'm talking about.

But sometimes. 

Sometimes I shower and put on makeup and blow-dry AND straighten my hair, and I put on a cute outfit, and I'm like, "Haaaay." (That's "hey" with a drawl in case you were wondering.)

That's what happened to me last Sunday when I got all dressed up for church. Because when you don't have a job to dress up for every day, you get really into dressing up for church. 

I even practiced my best impression of America's Next Top Model while walking into the sanctuary. I may or may not have tripped but who wants to know. I got compliments and everything. On my dress, not my walk. 

This of course isn't my all-time favorite picture of myself, but it's a recent favorite. 

See for yourself. Pretty cute, no? 
(Note: I got this dress for free from Eshakti for a blog review and first styled it here. My one and only blog perk besides the constant compliments on my wit and humor. HINT.)

Haaaay.

  17. The dress IS cute. But your smile...even better! I totally get the feeling of not being photogenic. I think everyone feels a bit critical of themselves. You look great!

  21. THAT DRESS! I love it! I also don't photograph well 98% of the time. I may have immediately tossed my school photos from the first two years of teaching. Yikes!
