Warm Weather Outtakes | A Rose in Bloom
From Back to Basics
I've been meaning to do for a while. As a nice reminder that no one is perfect, no, not even beautiful bloggers like me (ahem), I've decided to share some of my worst photos. Yeah, you read that right. I've always loved when other blogger shared the worst bits of their shoots because it makes me us all feel more human. See original post in the link below each picture. I'll start with my early DSLR Back to Basics post.Was I trying to look sexy? No clue. Whatever it was, that is definitely not a sexy picture...

Review: Everlane Cotton Slub Tank

Oh, my Everlane post. Still love the tank, the post not so much. I was still learning how to use my Nikon. Now that post is somehow my most popular post, probably because no one else reviewed this tank. Thanks, Google, hah.
What to Wear When You Just Need Solitude
Oh, the time I tried to be a poet because I wanted something to go with a pretty picture. Did I die from trying so hard?

The Mexican Blanket was already a no... before I got photobombed by other park goers.

The heck is this face?

I think I was trying to get a jumping picture. ..

Again, the jumping. Just what is this face? What am I so scared of?

Welcome Fall into My World

OMG, like look how carefree I am! Totally don't look surprise pregnant.

Thinking really hard about how dumb this face is. LOL!

So that's all there really is to this post. I'll probably do another one of all my fall/winter gems in the spring. Good lord knows there will be some. Thanks for laughing with me, at me, or both! I think it's important to share the worst along with the best sometimes... keeps us humble, reminds us that we are merely human, and, I think, it makes others feel better to know that everyone has bad moments. In this world of perfect Instagram snaps, it's easy to forget sometimes that there is a whole lotta imperfection before we reach any semblance of perfect.

What do you think? Would you ever share a ridiculous moment online?



  1. Oh my gosh, hahaha, I loved this post! Funny, because I've actually got a similar post planned in my drafts! Personal favourite would have to be the outtake from City Girl vs Country Girl. Looks more like a squat than a jump tbh. But squats while doing a shoot. #multitasking

    1. Yeah, I think I captured the right before I jumped moment. Hey, I got exercise!

  2. This entire post is painted by sweetness! I truly believe life is more beautiful when we can learn to laugh at ourselves. With all of the sorrow and craziness surrounding us, why not take the time to be silly? I have so many outtakes from my blog posts — I never delete them. I love the realness and humor revealed when I look at them. :)

    I hope in the future my great grandchildren will find the outtakes and realize although many of my photographs have a mood of seriousness, it was the outtakes that described me best.

    You are so endlessly lovely. Thank you. x

    — Love always, all ways..

    1. Yes, yes! The goofy little moments make us human and if we can't laugh at ourselves... well, I don't want to live in a life without laughter.

      The outtakes are truly the most raw moments we have. I hope you have yours when your great grandchildren are ready for them. xoxo

  3. Bahaha I LOVE the jumping ones -- serious, EVERY time I try it.. less than perfection. So cute, love seeing these!

    1. Hahahahahaha. Jumping is so hard to shoot well, and so satisfying when you do. Nothing like looking at a picture and realizing that it did not turn out how you felt it did AT ALL.

  4. Oh very cute outfits
    Very gorgeous and cute pics


  5. This is actually a wonderful idea for a post. It makes the whole blogging community seem a bit more real. Is it weird that I think at least half of these photos are still perfectly wonderful & acceptable? What does that say about me? Haha. :]

    1. It says that we are our own worst critics. Most people will not notice the flaws we notice! So nah, it's not weird that you thought they were fine, ha.


I am always happy to hear what you think and will get back to you as soon as I possibly can. Please, do not leave follow for follow or ask me to check out your blog, or any other form of spam. Simply leave a link and I will be happy to look when I get the time. :)
