Throwback Thursday: #Selfie Edition

One of the things I try to maintain on this blog is authenticity. The outfits I post here are not premeditated ensembles that wouldn't fly in real life. My pictures are mostly taken with an iphone during an actual activity I am partaking in. The shoots I do with my photographer are looks that I've either already worn or plan to wear in the immediate future. I think being disingenuous is not only obvious to readers, but it's also less compelling.

In that spirit, I've never shied away from posting selfies on here in the past. When I am wearing something I deem worth sharing, but did not get the opportunity to ask someone to snap my photo, one must resort to their own devices, aka the #selfie. And to play on the #TBT theme, I bring you three looks - all selfies - from this summer that showcase my simple and easy style.

Ann Taylor paisley blouse, Vince Gemma heels, Rich & Skinny denim bermudas, selfie, walk in closet

If only I had a proper mirror like this to take good photos... It's still in development, as annoying as it is. :( Love every single outfit, absolutely adore the shoes from the first look and brogues/laced shoes from the last. And God, you have amazing legs, absolutely amazing... x
