Stage Fright

So, I learned something new about myself last night. I have bad stage fright. I always knew that I hated to do things on a stage or perform or play charades or like games. I have a big fear of looking silly in front of other people, so I opt out of a lot of things. Well, yesterday I was trying to get my hubby to take my picture to enter a give-away on one of my favorite fashion blogs. And I was so awkward!! It makes sense because I feel that way in all of the previous mentioned events, but this time I was surprised and really frustrated!!!!

I really enjoy fashion, style and clothes- but I was too embaressed to take a picture of the thing (outfits) I put effort and time into. So this is something I want to get over! I am sick of being embaressed about something I enjoy. Maybe this will be the start of a new confidence movement for me.

Anyways here are the pictures. The first two are from last night. I included an awkward one, although they are both awkward to me.
The last one is another try today. I felt slightly less weird.

I really did like both of these Mom-style outfits and feel like although I am a mom, I can still dress my age. Here is a link to one of my favorite blogs. I think you will all enjoy it too!

Oh my goodness, I was CRACKING up reading this post!! I love the honesty - and can SO relate. Nothing makes me feel sillier than the outfit posts I force my husband to take! Sigh. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger....right?? :)

But your outfits are SO cute. I'm coveting your camel boots (and loving the t-shirt and scarf)....and there's just something so completely perfect about yellow boots and a striped tee.

Thanks for getting over the fear. You made my day. :)

I know what you mean! some people take great pictures...maybe they are thinking of something specific while they are doing it.

This was hilarious! And I completely relate. I feel so awkward doing pictures like that. But, you looks super cute. I love the yellow boots too!

PS We were in MO for your stake conference and I sat a few rows behind you. Your little boys are adorable and I can't believe how much you look like you Mom! I meant to say hello, but I was feeling really weird with some vertigo problems so I was a little out of it. Anyhow, hope you guys are doing well and enjoying the new place!
