OOTD: I'm not always comfortable in front of a camera


Ah autumn. Back to university.

I'm currently positioned at my desk. The cheap dark wooden table by the window, that I have now disguised its blandness with a self-adhesive marble sheet. Gotta add a bit of luxe to student digs, youknowwhatimsaying?

I think this picture was taken at the very end of August. And it's taken me this long to do a write up for it. 

Outfit posts are fun, take a few pics, throw in something funny about the outfit or the day I had - that's it.

And I do have a fun fact: the top was brought in Cuba, funnily enough. I was sick of its box shape, so I recently carved a neck cut-out. 

I used to love doing outfit posts but maybe I felt like this one was too forced? I was so in the mood to show my personal style, but when it came to the day that my friend was ready to photograph, I wasn't ready. 

Lately I have had the strangest feeling... (I can't stop listening to Stevie Wonder) that this blog is becoming less of fashion and more about lifestyle. Because most of the time I feel uncomfortable being in front of the camera. And I know I'm not the only one to admit it. 

This blog is all about honesty so I'm just gonna say why it's taken me so long to post this.

Do I look ok in the pictures? Is my personal style worth the attention?

I'm not losing sleep over this post, but it has me wondering too much, thinking too much. And not allowing me to publish this post.

This recurring feeling has prevented me from doing more outfit posts, also preventing this blog to be the fashion blog.

I would love to do more OOTDs, however, I can't help but feel a pathetic case of nervousness when a camera is pointed at me.

What's a blogger to do?
