Today I was sitting in my home office flipping through my feedly while on the phone with a friend and made the comment “I wonder how these people look on regular days!” She responded with a snarky “maybe you can be a ‘blogger again’ and create an post” LOL! So on a whim I grabbed my tripod and here it is!
I stopped doing OOTD’s on here because frankly most times I’m a regular chick! These OOTD/style/fashion bloggers be outchea suited and booted! Don’t get me wrong I love fashion, but I got tired of feeling like I had to “murder” each post and afterward couldn’t be seen in my regular clothes. Jesus didn’t want that for my life!!!
I work for a software development firm in downtown Chicago, sometimes I work from home aka I wear jeans almost every day! Sometimes I wear makeup, most times I don’t. Sometimes I wear heels, most times I don’t.
I have pimples and discoloration on my face. My eczema is usually flared-up in some form or fashion. Sometimes my hair isn’t on point b\c I’ve been riding my bike and it’s time for a trip to my hair stylist. Sometimes I’ve forgotten to get my eye brows arched!
I refuse to get caught up in this online life where people are led to believe their favorite bloggers are “beat” and dressed to the “9s” everyday! It’s like yo, I have 5/6 pair of jeans that are in heavy rotation and I’m a night owl who suffers from insomnia. I’m not waking up 30 extra minutes to paint my face to go sit in a room of coworkers who’s favorite items include cargo shorts, skullies, and flip flops! Nawl. My only must have is Moto 360 watch.
But I’m QUITE HAPPY being a regular chick!!!
I have a good job, a husband, a huge family, and a bunch of friends who love me whether I’m regular or werking!
Now, with all my regular clothes I do have TONs of shoes.. I could literally do a post for 150+ days and wear a different shoe each day. Blame it on late night insomnia!!
Shirt: BCBG | Jeans: H&M | Shoes: ASOS | Ring: Kate Spade | Watch: Moto 360
To all my regular women, I love y’all!! Have a “regular chick” post? Drop me a link!!
