this is my happy face {updated}

Sunday, October 17

Shoes: Charlotte Russe, Tights: Walmart, Skirt: H&M, Ruffled Top: F21, Sweater: F21, Belt: Thrifted
Apparently my whole body numbs over when I have to publicly speak. This is what happened when I spoke in church today. I was very, very nervous. And then very, very relieved when it was all over. My bladder was very relieved too. Because as soon as I sat back down I had to go REALLY bad. Real bad, guys. I crossed my legs real tight until the end and everything was ok, but those nerves man. They really do a number on me. So that's why THIS is my happy face. Carefree and completely blissful again. I almost wish we'd taken the time to find a grassy meadow for these pictures, so I could frolic and play with the butterflies. And I'm actually not that big of a fan of butterflies. That's just how carefree I am right now.

P.S. You guys! Sarah from A tiny bit of Sparkle asked me to be a part of her 'blog du jour' series over on her adorable blog! Check it out!

Public speaking is (apparently) in the top 3 phobias for people. Glad you made it through ;)

Sidenote: I was going back through your blog archives and noticed you used to have VERY dark hair! And I'm PRETTY SURE you said you'd NEVER go blonde again :P WEll, can I just say I'm glad you did?? I love you with the lighter hair.

Lookin' great, as per usual.

I showed your blog to my friend that works at Vogue & she said your style is ridiculously amazing, just thought you should know :-)

LOVE this outfit!

Mrs. Davis @ The Carolina Housewife said...

OMG! Divalicious shoes and skirt!

Glad you're back to carefree again. Speaking in public is my worst nightmare. I will NEVER do it again. You're not the only person who finds it anxiety-inducing. Hope you guys had a happy weekend :-)

Super suuuuuper lovely!! I love all the fun poses!
I get nervous speaking in church too...especially since mine is full of very old people...haha!

I hate hate hate speaking in public. I managed to make it through my public speaking class for college, but that was the end of my public speaking career. Even worse is when they make you use a microphone. I can imagine what a complete feeling of relief to have it over you must have now.

Owl said...

Hi! I just found your blog, your style is so lovely! :)

skyhippie said...

I agree with Elaine- the outfit is to die for! Mucho kudos for the amazing fashion sense, and also for the public speaking ;) it's scary stuff, but the more you do, the easier it gets! It's become kinda a rush.

Kayla said...

You look fantastic. You should be jumping for joy. Looking fab and conquering public speaking. Double Whammy!

I agree! Please tell us where you get your adorable clothes. Oh my goodness, I am totally the same! I'm fine speaking in a small group but once I get up on that stand I forget how to talk and my voice gets all shaky, it's great. haha

eleanor said...

You look amazing! Those shoes, oh my goodness. I WANT THEM.

You are gorgeous! As is your blog.
And guess what? We're twins because I spoke in sacrament meeting today too and I know EXACTLY the blissfulness you are describing. As soon as you sat down, wasn't that the best feeling ever?
Until 7 or 8 months when I have to do it all over again..

I do okay when I speak publicly, I just some butterflies in my stomach and mess up 3-4 times. Other than that, I'm fine :).
Very cute outfit. I would have never thought to put that pink cardigan and that striped skirt together. You're a fashion genius. And for those of you who wanted to know her outfit details, there under the last pictures in the post.
