Are blogs supposed to be kept a secret from certain people?
Honestly, I am not sure if there’s really an answer to that question. For me though, up until recently, only certain people in my life were aware that I kept a blog. I didn’t intentionally keep it a secret, but if someone isn’t familiar with the concept, it can sound a bit strange. I mean, try explaining to someone who’s never seen a fashion blog what it is. “I have a page on the internet where I post a bunch of selfies and sometimes, what I ate or did on the weekend. It’s totally cool though, there’s a huge community of blogger’s out there.”
* crickets *
For that reason, this blog wasn’t something I spoke about too much at work. I mentioned it here and there, but no one really asked questions. Until, last week.
As I mentioned recently, I just bought myself a DSLR camera (which I’m absolutely loving!!) and I’ve been excited to use it and make this blog better. Even though I’m waiting on the camera bag I ordered to arrive, I decided to bring it to work the other day.
I managed to sneak out of the office without anyone noticing, but then I came back and everyone was eating lunch. They looked at me, holding this massive camera and a tripod and asked me what on earth I was doing.
Ummm….. Busted???? Luckily, I work with a creative bunch, so I think they get it.
On another note, I was excited to re-kindle my love affair with this blazer. I bought it a few years ago, but for some reason, I think it will get more wear this year than it did in the past. Maybe I’m just more “sophisticated” this year. Or older. Let’s stick with sophisticated, shall we?
Blazer – Gap (old)
Tank – Urban Outfitters (hello, $7.00 on sale)
Jeggings – !iT Jeans
Booties – Arturo Chiang via The Bay
Purse – Roots
Spiked Bracelet – Stella & Dot
Side note – I chopped off some hair and dyed it darker for fall. So glad I did, looking back at these pictures!
