That Time I Tried an Outfit Selfie and Failed

My wireless remote broke for my camera, I tried to just click the shutter and run into place, but I can't seem to get anything in focus. My house is a mess and I have no where to take a picture right I decided today is going to be the first selfie outfit post. I think I totally failed, you be the judge.

I really dislike it getting dark so early now. I leave for work at 5am and get home at 5pm, it's dark. So outfit posts aren't happening outside right now. I need to take them inside somewhere, but the lighting in my bathroom is horrible. I bring our lap from our bedroom makes the lighting even more weird. I realize that all these pictures are slightly blurry too, because there wasn't much light, the flash didn't work and I need a new plan for outfit posts.

Anyway, enough complaining. This outfit I threw together in 5 seconds flat. I didn't have to think about it, I just threw it on and walked out the door. Which is much needed because I want all the sleep I can get, so I need something quick and easy.

This is the scarf I got from the scarf exchange I did with my girlfriends

I should have just used the DSLR camera and gotten slightly blurry photos, since that's how these turned out because of the low light and shaky hands.

I was playing around with some fake eyelashes, I actually bought these (Ardell 204) for our family photo shoot, but decided they were just too long and went with a different pair (a Japanese pair from Daiso, everything in there is a $1.50, it's awesome).. I finally got them to work and by work I mean I wasn't a fumbling mess and actually got them to stick to my skin. So instead of putting on eye make up I put on these babies and it totally looks like I did my make up...sort of.

I look like a deer in headlights in this one. So see my hair? I tried a no heat curl, and it totally worked! It was super easy, and even though I was running late yesterday, I just took the twisted braid out, combed my fingers through and I was done 30 seconds later. EASY! This was after a full 12 hours of having it in. When I first took them out my hair was a bit poofy, but it relaxed and I am loving how easy it is. They are slighly tighter waves than when I use the curling wand, but super simple and something to do so my hair isn't stick straight. Plus it gives my hair a break from the flat iron I use everyday. Yes I use one everyday, because I have some awesome bedhead.

I actually didn't end up taking my jacket off yesterday, but I really like how simple but put together this outfit is.

Moral of this post, I will not be taking any more outfit selfies. I look like a deer in headlights and my bathroom lights are less than desirable.
