Today's Everyday Fashion: Reality Check


Sometimes I wish social media was a little more truthful. For example: maybe this outfit is cute at first glance. But the reason I was wearing it? Not so cute! What I had planned to wear for the hubs family reunion fell through. I have a gluten allergy and my stomach swells up like I swallowed a cantaloupe for a couple hours. I must've eaten something by accident and the reunion of course just happened to be during those couple hours. It was also cold and rainy and I didn't pack many warm options. So this outfit was basically my only choice. (No gluten allergy in these pics though - it was raining so we had to photograph the next day.) Which is pretty much life, isn't it? You pack a cute outfit, the weather is bad. Or it rips or you spill something. Or your stomach is being lame. That my friends, is reality! 😜
