What I Wore: Russell Street BBQ & The Nike Hoop Summit

I want to start this little outfit post (this pathetic, sorry excuse for an outfit post...) by saying... all you fashion bloggers out there deserve a gold medal. These outfit pictures are hard. Clearly I'm not a natural. I feel silly, I hate the way I look in 99% of the photos and somehow, my hair, makeup, outfit, everything seem to look just a bit better when I look in the mirror. Then when I see these pictures, I kind of cringe... Now, please don't acknowledge my whining over here. Swear I'm not fishing for compliments. I'm just saying, this blog will not be turning into a fashion blog anytime soon :) Here's what I wore on Saturday night. Hope you enjoy the photos!

  1. I feel the same way about style blogging! GAH! Why are we so hard on ourselves? Seriously stupid. But you look so adorable, and I love your outfit here. That flower burrowed it's way into my little heart with that mustard cardi.

  2. you look gorgeous! And yes. Taking those photos and making everything look natural and beautiful and feeling comfortable POSTING them online is quite harder than it looks and feels. haha I tried once and I just gave up it was sooooo soooo hard. AND everything felt like unless I tried hard to look good I just didn't. Haha I think you did a good job THOUGH :)!

  16. I have the SAME problem with mirrors and photos! You feel so glam when you're looking at your reflection only to look at your camera screen and feel so not hot. I think you look adorable though, Liz! You always do and that red lipstick is so perfect :) xo
