I have never really considered myself a fashion blogger. Although I share my outfits with you, talk about how my style has evolved or maybe give you some styling tips that I’ve picked up along the way, I always categorise The Barefaced Chic as a lifestyle blog.
Styling An Embroidered Military Style Jacket – Badly!
I don’t have my finger on the pulse of fashion (although I’m learning more every day), and I do make mistakes – oh so many outfit mistakes. Take this embroidered military style jacket for example. Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE this jacket, but what on earth was I thinking when I styled it with THAT dress?!
When I looked through the images from this outfit shoot my first reaction was to bin them and forget I ever left the bowels of the boat dressed like an overstuffed sausage. Yet if I did that I’d not only be fooling myself, I’d be presenting you with a unrealistic impression of me and this blog.
The fact is, there are going be times when I lose my way on this still pretty new fashion road. I’ll make the wrong choices, wear things that don’t suit me and look through hundreds of pictures that make me cringe. And you know what? I’m OK with that, and I’m more than OK sharing my faux pas with you.
My aim is to keep this blog as real as I possibly can. Yes, of course I share the best images with you. Yes, I share the good times with you. Yes, I share my eclectically glorious life with you. But I also share the bad times, the sad times and I sometimes let you look into my very soul.
This lifestyle blogger is still learning, still experimenting and still loving fashion – even if she sometimes looks like a sausage 😜
Until next time x
