Outfit Out-Takes: When Fashion Blogging Goes Wrong

Posted on 2 min read

It’s been a while since I shared some of my Outfit Out-Takes with you, so, for a bit of Friday fun, here are some of the shots that DIDN’T make it onto the blog in recent months: for obvious reasons…

I think I was trying to adjust my dress here. Either that or I was really, really drunk. Whatever I was doing, though, at least I look like I was enjoying it, huh? Unlike, say, THIS move…

Waltzing with an invisible partner? Singing ‘I’m A Little Teapot’, complete with actions? Or just… really, really drunk?

Yeah, I think I’m probably just going to have to go with “really, really drunk,” unfortunately. GOD.

And here, too:

OK, so you see the crack in the pavement right behind my right shoe? I managed to put my stiletto heel RIGHT in that crack. It’s a talent to be able to seek out random acts of stupidity like that, I’m telling you. To do the same thing twice, though? Well, that would just be plain stupid, wouldn’t it? I mean…

…OH. And, OK, it was just a particularly soft patch of earth my heel sunk into here, but still. Good job those shoes are waterproof, huh? If you’re thinking that I only fall over (or almost) in the great outdoors, though, well, I beg to differ…

WTF?

No, I have absolutely no idea what’s happening here. I’m not sure I even WANT to know, to be honest: all I can tell you is that I CAN actually walk in heels – you just… wouldn’t always think it to look at me, would you?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Thank you for posting these. It’s good to know that even those that inspire me have outtakes and that I’m not the only one with more then my fair share of Derpy outtakes 🙂 Out of interest how many photos do you take for each outfit?

      It really depends – sometimes we can have it done in a few takes, other times it takes dozens!

    Uh, have you disappeared from Bloglovin? Because not one of your posts came up on my feed this week? 😕

    Funnily enough I’ve had bloglovin open all day and refreshed it a few times and maybe 10 minutes ago all your posts from this week landed in my feed……

      This would explain why my traffic has been a bit lower this week – although they’ve all been showing up in my own Bloglovin’ feed, so I’m very confused! That said, Bloglovin’ can be a law unto itself, so it wouldn’t be the first time I’d been confused by it 😉

    Thank goodness for digital photography when you can take and delete as many as you like. There is a photo of me in the 90s wearing a fabulous tiger pattern dress from Morgan (remember them?) and great boots, neither of which I have now. Unfortunate then that the photographer captured me looking completely drunk. I wasn’t but my eyes were half-open, so no one is convinced when I tell them I was probably just squinting in the light.

    I didn’t mean to laugh, honest… but I did. I immediately looked for that crack I between the stones because, well, that’s a fave misstep of mine too. I’ve had balance issues all my life due to inner ear “stuff.” Thanks for such a lighthearted post; it’s exactly what I need right now. Enjoy the weekend.

    Haha, thanks for sharing! 🙂

AD | We’re spending a few days at @highlandheatherlodges in beautiful Perthshire, for what Terry is optimistically referring to as his ‘birthday week’. (I say ‘optimistically’ - we’re only here for three days, and his birthday was yesterday, but don’t stop believing, Terry!)⁣
⁣
There’s a hot tub for us and a playpark for Max, so needless to say, we’re having a fantastic time, and I’m already dreading having to leave. Today’s big question: can I pass as an under-12, so I qualify for a pony ride at the nearby wildlife centre? 🤔 (On second thoughts, don’t answer that one...)⁣

It’s another rainy Monday, so I’m throwing it back to our trip to @universalorlando ‘s amazing Volcano Bay water park last month. I’m a bit of a scaredy when it comes to water flumes, but this park had tons of stuff for pretty much everyone: plenty of rides for me, and an amazing splash pad for Max 👶In fact, I’d still be on The Fearless River right now if I possibly could be. Still, doing the laundry and turning the heating on will be just as good, right? Right?! 🌋 🏊‍♀️ .

Good news! We took Max to hospital this morning, and saw two different surgeons, who agreed there was no need to go ahead with the surgery as his lip is healing really well on its own 😅  He’ll definitely have a scar, unfortunately, but that would’ve been the case whether he’d had the surgery or not, and if it turns out to be worse than anticipated, we’ll have the option to have it corrected under local anaesthetic when he’s older. ⁣
⁣
I’m still really upset that this happened in the first place, obviously, but so relieved that we don’t have to put him through a general anaesthetic, and just incredibly grateful that it wasn’t anything worse. I know some parents have to deal with much more serious stuff than this, and my heart goes out to you all: it’s been a rough couple of days, and I’m really grateful to everyone who took the time to comment on yesterday’s post - your stories were so comforting when I was panicking yesterday ❤️ ⁣
⁣
(Old photo, obviously: every time Max sees the selfie camera, he thinks it’s going to be one of those filters where you open your mouth and something happens 😂)⁣

Totally unrelated photo, but we’ve just spent the morning in Accident & Emergency with Max, who fell on the path outside the house and split his lip open 😥 ⁣
⁣
They tried to stitch it up at A&E, but it was totally impossible with him awake, so they’ve booked him in to have it done under general anaesthetic tomorrow ... Max is absolutely fine: the bleeding stopped quickly, he doesn’t seem to be in pain, and is just his normal, happy little self. I, on the other hand, am a complete wreck: the plastic surgeon he saw today reckons if we don’t have it fixed, his lip will be crooked when it heals, but I’m absolutely *terrified* of the thought of my baby having to have a GA. ⁣
⁣
If you’re a long-time follower, you might know that I have a full-blown phobia of general anaesthetic (I literally had an elective c-section in order to eliminate the possibility of an emergency one, which might have had to be done under GA), so I just can’t get my head to accept that it’s safe and he’ll be fine 😥 ⁣
⁣
Positive stories and advice very welcome: I’m just so terrified, I can’t even imagine how to get through the next 24 hours 😥😥😥

#throwbackthursday to last week, when I needed a sunhat and SPF 50 to leave the house, rather than the current raincoat and wellies situation. Can you tell the post-holiday blues are still in full swing over here? 🌧 .

I posted this on Stories over the weekend, but he looked so cute in it I figured it deserved a spot on the grid, too! This is Max all ready for his friend Eleah’s 1st birthday party on Saturday: despite the jetlag and his continuing obsession with doors of all kinds (He had an entire soft play at his disposal, but he mostly just wanted to open and close the gate into it...) he had an absolute ball, and spent the whole drive home shouting, “HAPPY! HAPPY!” Thanks to @thestirlingstyle for a great party 🥳 🎈 🎉 . (Oh, and that’s his hairbrush in his hand - boy likes to look his best 😉)
