Disgusted

I am disgusted with myself right now. I am a bad blogger. I have been sorely lacking in the post department of late. With no good reason.

Easily the most unflattering picture of myself I've ever posted on the internet. Proof of how disgusted I am with myself.

I'm too hard on myself, I feel like some days I'm just not good enough or I'm not interesting enough or my outfit isn't good enough or any number of things which keep me from posting.
It's silly really. Most of my favorite blogs are the ones where people are just themselves, perfect or imperfect posts. 

I'm afraid you won't like me if I'm not the image of perfection. See? Told you it's silly. 

So in order to get past this I've made a pact with myself. And have decided to challenge myself a little in the month of June. 
In order to get past perfection and enter into reality (or at least let you into my reality) I will post at least one outfit photo every day in June regardless of what I'm wearing.

I'm hoping this will a) help me see that this blog is not dependant on my being an imaculate image of vintage perfection and b) push me a little not to wear jeans and a tee-shirt as much as I have been in the past week.

Do you ever feel less than perfect? Does it keep you from doing the things that you want/desire?

  1. I put myself on a really similar schedule last year and it totally did wonders for me - it really forced me to come up with daily posts/content and I've actually stuck to the format ever since.

  2. Do I ever feel less than perfect?

    Hmmmm, only every other day! Yep, I feel it too. I wonder if anyone reads what I write, do they care what I have to say, or, some days I feel like I'm just an overly loud windbag, spouting off about this and that.

    However.

    I also feel my blog is my little corner of the world to rant and rave as I please, and really, who cares if anyone reads, or agrees-or disagrees-with me. It's my space and I'll do as I see fit with it. Once I remember that, then I continue on with my rantage and all is well.

    Some of the very best blogs I have read the writers show themselves as human...ie, not perfect. For myself, I don't read your blog because I expect perfect vintage dressing or images. I read here to enjoy the wonderful clothes you do share...clothes that I could never wear because my life just doesn't allow for dresses and pretty things. I'm a jeans and tank top, hands in the dirt all day long, kinda girl, so I enjoy vintages fashions vicariously through you. :)

  3. Yes!
    I'm trying to learn the lesson to be as ME as I can be, rather than...perfect. It's hard. Thank you for sharing this challenge publically - it's a much needed reminder.

    If I wasn't afraid, I would... (wow, I think I need to go journal about that :)
