I thought I was gonna try this post a day thing along with this dress a day thing, but then asked myself if I was really up for a post a day. But more than a post a day, I should maybe have been asking myself if I am up for another photo a day, and especially since this photo a day will be of myself? I don’t think I have recovered from Skirtember! That is always the hardest thing to do when it comes to these daily outfit challenges, take a picture of myself EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
I am always asking one of the other two in this house, “Take a picture of me! Make sure I don’t look weird in it, okay? And it would be nice if you kind of took it at an angle that makes me look better than I do right now. Take at least ten of them because I am sure only none are gonna come out, alright?!”
And the one who usually ends up taking my pictures for these daily outfit posts is the boy, and when I get inside the house to put them on the computer, I find out that he just likes to keep pushing the button over and over again, whether I am ready or not. I then have way more photos of me moving in some strange way, making a weird face, or in mid-sentence, than I have of a suitable picture to post on this here blog. Either that or they are out of focus and some may even look like this:
I know I’ve shown this one before, but there are lots of pictures I find that look similar to this!
I could set my gorilla pod up, which I occasionally do, get out the point and shoot, and take them myself, but then the problem is that I am again out of focus, and/or I look like this:
Maybe this way isn’t that bad. At least I don’t have to worry about what kind of face I am making.
I also realized a few months back that I have a pretty nice looking backdrop for pictures in my own backyard, but right now, it looks like this:
Not very pretty for pictures, huh?
So, despite these minor issues, I know I can do a photo a day, of myself, but the post a day is not gonna happen. I will stick to the weekly-roundup type post that I have already done a few times before. And for this month, my Dressember posts will be on Mondays, starting next week. I will go ahead and put up what I am wearing today for the 1st of Dressember:
And let me just say, of course the dog had to photo bomb the very first picture I ended up taking with the self timer! It just fits today’s topic so well, I had to keep it.
I hope to have some not that bad, daily photos of all the dresses I will be wearing for the month to come. And if you are participating in Dressember, leave me a comment and let me know. Or, if you want to sponsor someone or think you could get sponsored for wearing a dress a day, stop on by dressember.net for all the info regarding that.
So, until next time, I will be wearing dresses and taking photos!

I am doing a post a day for December (or at least going to try ekk!) I wrote some out already so on days I won’t have any extra time I already have a few planned! Good luck on your dress a day 🙂
Thank you! Good luck to you too. A post a day is on my to do list, but just not yet at the top I guess. Writing in advance would be a great help, good idea! 🙂
