Blushing Through Some Honesty in my Blush Skinnies

My skinnies may be blush, but that is not the only thing that is going to be blushing through this post! I am about to get real and honest with you about some of the things in my life!

Before we begin with my blushing, warmer temps mean that I feel the need to wear all of my pretty pastels and these blush pants are no exception. Throw in some gorgeous neutrals, girlie lace and bright pops of color and you have a perfect spring outfit. These are all such great pieces that you have probably already seen on the blog before. I really try not to shop just for blog posts. As a busy Mom and Teacher, it is just not feasible for me to have two separate wardrobes. If you are seeing it on the blog, you can almost guarantee that it has been in some form or fashion in my real life. I may come off as leading a glamorous life… maybe… if you examine me really closely with a magnifying glass. But I am nothing close to glamorous.

Clearly I love fashion, and with that, I love fashion bloggers. It was one of the main reasons that I started blogging in the first place. I admired their style, poise and grace. They always looked so put together and like they could conquer the world. I wanted that for my own life.

In many ways, I really feel like I have achieved that. I may not be glamorous, but I am definitely giving off some girl boss vibes! Sometimes I even surprise myself with how much I am able to accomplish in a week. Some weeks I even accomplish it all wearing heels every day! That is conquering the world… or at least the staff meeting!

Now are you ready for my blushing?

For me, what you see on the blog is what you get. I try to remain true to who I am and not wear things that are not my style. In fact, some days when I don’t know what to wear, I go through old blog photos for inspiration! I am proud of the outfits that I put together so why not wear them to work. At least it gives off the impression that I have my life together.

To be perfectly honest, most days I do not have my life together. I either have a full face of makeup or a super cute outfit. Rarely do I have both at the same time. I also wash my hair about once a week. That means that at any given time there might be a pound of dry shampoo in my hair. Don’t worry! I am clean! I am just usually to tired to wash, blow dry and straighten my hair. In fact, on the weeks that I do wash my hair more than once, I am probably going to go to bed with it wet!

And that is real life!

I am about as human as they come. My dishes get piled up in my sink, clothes get thrown down on the floor of my closet and laundry may get washed, but it rarely get folded! I never fill up the car with gas before the gas light comes on, I let Vivi watch way too much Peppa Pig and binge watch shows on Netflix. I may be eating healthy but I don’t know if I will ever be able to give up Starbucks. In fact, I will choose Starbucks over food any day of the week. Speaking of Starbucks, I am totally that Mom who gets her kid a Cake Pop every time we go. In fact, Vivi now asks for them by name and gets ecstatically happy when she sees that brown Starbucks treat bag.

That is my real life. Those are just a few of my secrets. And you know what, I am totally ok with sharing them because I know I am not alone! We are all just doing the best we can and that is all anyone can ask of us!

I hope that you enjoy my little blog and can relate to me just a little better because I definitely enjoy writing it for all of you! Why not let me know your most “human” trait in the comments? I love to hear from you!

  1. Beautiful outfit! I will be wearing something similar soon. Always be true to yourself! Everything on my blog has been worn by me to work or church or some event or obligation, and since I take my own photos, I’m usually taking the photos after a long day of wearing the outfit. I don’t wear or buy something to create a blog post either, so you are not alone. I prefer bloggers who keep it real. Sometimes I see posts and wonder where in the real world do they wear such things?
