Pinafore


Now that I work from home, it's been somewhat difficult to find a balance amidst "it all." It's so easy to lose track of time when you're not counting down to the end of your shift. It's easy to get into a rut since it's just you... by yourself... and only you to motivate yourself. It's easy to throw on the same pair of jeans and a tee every day. Lately I've been trying to get out of the house at least twice a week, not counting events, shoots, time in the studio, et al. It's not too hard to get myself to go to a coffee shop (being cooped in my tiny apartment isn't fun) but believe it or not, getting dressed for the occasion has proved kinda difficult. Have I lost my je ne sais quoi?

Don't worry, I'm just being a little overdramatic. I've been using this new stage in my life to challenge myself. I have social anxiety that's often times crippling. I've been making myself go to every event, soirée, and any other opportunity to meet new people and hand out business cards. I tend to wear the same few items of clothing all the time because of my various insecurities. I've been trying to wear things I haven't worn in a while, like this pinafore. ASOS gifted it to me last summer and I wore it exactly one time. (In this blog post, actually.) I don't know why I never wear it, because it's kinda cute.

Here's to trying new things, no? This is just the beginning. There are many more to come.
