Black, White and Sequins (Wear to Work)

Is it just me or is it way too easy to criticize yourself sometimes?  Like a lot of you,  I run a blog where the entirety of my posts revolve around pictures of...myself.  I've found myself criticizing the way I look (in photos) more often than I'd like to admit.  Sometimes my posture is awful and I feel like I need to apologize to everyone looking at my outfit on my blog.  And other times I feel like a certain pose or angle is either too repeated or not flattering.  100% of the time, I look away from these imperfections in photos.  This is when I choose to "look away" from my flaws.

I've realized that the majority of the time when we criticize ourselves, no one else notices these flaws.  They're not a big deal until you point them out yourself.  You get what I mean?  Sometimes these imperfections we see in ourselves are not even a big deal.  We tend to judge ourselves much harsher than we judge others.

If any of you ever see a photo of yourself and judge yourself...just let it go.  We are all made to be perfectly imperfect.  I saw this quote once from a friend I went to high school with.  It said, "Your every flaw makes you perfect."  It's so true!  We're all beautifully flawed :)

Anyway, here's another Wear to Work outfit.  Happy Friday...and have a great weekend!

  10. I was about to rave about how good you look when I started to read your prose. It's so sad that we see ourselves with flaws when 99% of what we do is impressive and our tiny "flaws" are invisible to other people. You look fabulous here. A terrific blend of bold and subtle, strong and feminine, flashy and demure. A result I could never achieve even if I possessed your youth and beauty (which I don't). I'm glad you arrived at the conclusion that self-criticism is unnecessary and self-defeating. Be proud!

  13. It's natural to be critical of yourself, especially with a public forum like a blog--but trust that you look great and needn't worry about any imperfections. I love this top! So gorg!

  20. This is an absolutely GORGEOUS outfit to wear to work.. to a date.. to anywhere! It is so glam and gorgeous!!

    Oh and yes I completely agree with you - we are so critical of ourselves. I have a few things that really upset me about myself but no one else notices them unless I bring them up. I wish we could all be more confident and happy with ourselves xxxx

  26. I know what you mean...we are all sometimes too critical of ourselves. Today I had some kind of 'mini crisis' that had more to do with my professional frustrations, but I can relate...often instead of wondering whether we're good enough of not, we should just do our best.

    Keeping a blog isn't easy, but as long as we're generally happy with it, we should keep doing it. I think blogs are a wonderfully democratic way of presenting one's style.

    You look fantastic btw! your legs look great in those white jeans...and it's such a classical and elegant monochrome look!

    I'm really honored you followed me and I've followed you back on gfc, bloglovin and lookbook.

  30. You're absolutely right. These flaws are visible to us only. For me, your blog has always been fabulous clothes and styling. Your posture has always been perfect and your body is to die for :) Even if you might think otherwise, here's my point of view :)

  31. You look gorgeous! Love this ensemble (black and white is a fave)! I try not to be hard on myself (by thinking self-critical thoughts); but being human...it does happen at times. I always try to quickly stop myself, though. :) T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
