Why do I love following fashion blogs?
I love seeing what other women wear.
Not the In Style type of blogs, but the down-to-earth, every day blog of the common woman (if there is such a thing as a common woman).
(My style is skirts and cardigans for the winter/fall and skirts and knit tops for spring/summer.)
I love looking girly but I also love being comfortable and to me, skirts are more comfortable than pants.
At times other blogs give me a case of the "I wants."
They make me yearn for a cute outfit just like they're wearing.
Then I got to looking in my closet and know what I found?
A closet full of clothes that I would be longing for if I saw someone else modeling them.
I had the great idea that if I had pictures of my own clothes put together in actual outfits, then maybe I would appreciate what I have instead of wanting more.
So then I started wishing for a camera with a timer so I could make pictures of my own outfits.
After getting my son to snap my picture this morning I told him about my desire for a camera with a timer and he showed me that MY camera does indeed have a timer.
He even took the time to show me how to use it.

I've finished my second cup of coffee while sitting here in front of my computer so now I'm getting up to finish my Monday morning household chores. Then I'll make out my menu and head out to the grocery store (after I apply a little makeup).
Maybe I'll have time to practice with my camera and tripod this afternoon.
I'd love to master the art of homemade fashion photography.
Want to join me?
I'd love to see what you're wearing today.
Leave me a link and I'll come take a peek.
