Instagram vs. What Actually Went Down

Since I've seen several other bloggers doing this fun post, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and do it as well! Instagram is one of my favorite aspects of blogging, but my pictures aren't always exactly how they appear. I hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look!

Instagram: Look how chic and street stylish I am! Few people can rock gingham jeans in the heat of the summer, but I am one of those fabulous people!

WAWD: This picture was taken in the middle of a New York City street (in the 95 degree heat mind you) and I nearly got ran over by a line of taxis while attempting to take a #fromwhereIstand picture. I didn't really comprehend how hot is was going to be when I was planning my outfits before I left, which was really unfortunate because I thought I was going to black out every time I walked outside an air conditioned building. 

Instagram: Just a casual snap from a night out on the town in NYC. And isn't my citrusy gelato too cute?!!?

WAWD: Ok, this is an awkward one. I was out to gelato with Mackenzie and Amy, two of my most favorite bloggers, when Mackenzie offered to take a picture of my gelato for me. I was shaking so much (because it isn't everyday that you are sitting across the table from your role models) that I was freaking out that I wouldn't be able to hold the cup up in a steady position. And I really wanted to try the chocolate gelato, but I thought the brown wouldn't correspond with my feed so I forced myself to get the raspberry and lemon instead #bloggerproblems. 

Instagram: This cosmetic is so preppy and fun and so am I since I take preppy and fun pictures while I work at my preppy and fun job! 

WAWD: I will admit, both this cosmetic and my summer job are preppy and fun, but I have the most hilarious story behind this one. No one was in the store so I quick ran out the back door to snap a picture of this cosmetic bag (gotta get that natural lighting) only to find a random lady glaring at me in the parking lot, most definitely judging me. Oh the things I do for Instagram #lesigh

Instagram: Look at me! I'm so cool because I dress up for every occasion, including studying for my Pre-Calc test. And isn't my messy pony just the coolest thing ever?!

WAWD: Ha, I was wearing an oversized t-shirt and nike shorts doing my homework for hours until I realized I hadn't Instagramed in a while, so I threw on my chambray shirt (that I had to pull super tight from the bottom because otherwise it looked too wrinkly) and quick took a picture. Not to mention, my hair looked too disgusting to wear down so I threw it up in a hair band and called it a "messy ponytail". Don't worry kids, I don't wear button downs 24/7. 

I hope this post wasn't too weird - I thought it would be something funny to make your Wednesday a little better ;)
