it's time you know the truth

you are all used to seeing pictures of me like this on my blog:
DSC_0939 DSC_0740
... but I think it's time I tell you all the truth.
i, maggie, am not cool. REALLY. nor am i especially photogenic (at all). for every *decent* picture that is deemed to be *okay* enough to post on this blog without fearing i will totally want to crawl into an internetless hole and click "delete" on my blog, there are 100 bad ones. i mean, my harddrive is 96% filled with horrible, awful, and amusing pictures of me. so here you go, proof! i'm not that cool. i'm the least cool person around. my life looks more like the pictures below than the ones above. and i was thoroughly entertained by looking through hundreds of these pictures. i think i almost like them more than the supposed "decent" ones...? i think these are more representative of the maggie my friends, family, and people in real life know me as...?

PHEW!
There you have it.
I feel like I can now sleep easier at night knowing we are all on the same page.

Maggie, you crack me up. Somehow you still manage to look decently fabulous in all of these photos. I'm pretty sure I burst out laughing at work at the one of you in the field with the floral dress. This reminds me of when I posted all my bloopers. It was going to be a weekly series until I realized I didn't want my blog to be 20% ugly pictures of myself. :P

And let's be real. 96% of all of our pictures are horrible (except those freakishly beautiful models). ;)

SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS POST.

Girl, I know that feel.

I take so many AWFUL pictures, and usually only 1 or 2 turn out semi-usable for my blog.

Michelle Lynn said...

Whatever, you still look like the coolest person on earth. (I have a few outfit photos of me falling off a tree stump, me tripping while trying to show my dress in motion, and screaming and ducking because a bee flew at me. Adventures in outfit photos.)

ha!

love the fun and honesty here.
and truly, I think everyone thinks you're cooler now for doing that.

I love this post and girl, you are not alone. When my boyfriend takes my photos we both end up on our knees hyperventilating from laughing so hard at the derpy faces I make.
You are a cutie and I love that you don't take yourself too seriously!

Stawp, I love this post! It's about time we all stand up and accept that every jumping picture we attempt to take in a dress ends with either a derpy face or flashing the camera! Or is that just me? Anyway, these are adorable (derping or no).

How interesting would it be to have a blog of "real" photos like this?! They are so amusing and realistic, and you still look super pretty.

Girl I think you're on to something.

Elanor said...

Ahahaa I just giggled so much. Meeting you person has definitely changed my idea of who you are, too, compared to just seeing your smiling face. :)

I should probably get over myself and do a sort of post like this....!! hahah

xxoo Elanor

My dream is to meet you in real life because if I already didn't want to, this just sealed the deal.

Meg! said...

OMG THE FIRST ONE HA. I'm really depressed now tho b/c you look way better in your outtakes than I do in my good photos. Bitch.

Katelyn said...

I'm pretty sure that your "uncoolness" makes you one of the coolest people I know...at least it's grounds to put you on my list of favorite people in the world :)

Maggie,

I'm a new follower to your blog and I cannot describe how awesome and inspirational you are to me! You are real and that is what I love about your blog. Thanks for posting these pictures of out takes and not being too afraid to admit you aren't a "perfect fashionista." Your blog shows me that even little old me can be fabulous and cute and lovely. Thanks and looking forward to more posts!

hellolyndsey said...

HAHAHAHA!! I had a million pictures like that too until I couldn't handle the embarrassment of them all and deleted them. I love you and your goofiness!! Being able to be honest makes you totally cool to me :)
xoxo

kylee said...

i kind of love that you posted all those.

Jamie Rose said...

Hahaha! You're not alone! I, too, have a bunch of pictures like this! Sometimes I look through my pictures and I'm like, "how did my face do that?"

Becky said...

LOVE your hair! All these outfits are all very cute!

Autumn said...

It takes a ton of pictures to get ones that I like too. I think a lot of these are really adorable though just so you know!

hannah said...

Hahaha, this post makes you my favourite person ever. Awesome :)

Hannah said...

You brave woman!

I've got a crapload of awful faces/poses from me and I just can't bring myself to delete them. I just like to look at them and giggle to myself. As I typed that sentence, I realized how weird that sounds. Oh well! Thanks for the laugh, Maggie! :)

Katie said...

I can totally relate! I take 1000, choose 1 out of the 100 that I sorta-kinda like. =)
