Birthday bloopers 2016

Happy birthday to me! As I have done the past few years, I’m celebrating my birthday on the blog with an outtakes post. Enjoy!

Also, a quick note that the poll is open to vote for your favorite outfit from July — thanks in advance!

For more birthday bloopers, see the outtakes post from 2013, this one from 2014, and this one from 2015.

I always find outtakes post a fun way to reflect back — I am especially struck by how many different hairstyle variations I’ve had in the past year! I am NOT surprised, however, by how consistently awkward I can look in photos, ranging from oddly placed limbs to comical “Whuuuuuuuut?!” facial expressions.

I have SO many outtakes — seriously, I think I save anywhere from 1 to 5 outtakes from each outfit we take pics of — so it was hard to narrow down to these 16 sets. Looking back, I realized I am now putting together outtakes posts consistently at least 3 times a year:  for my birthday in August, for New Year’s in January, and for my blog anniversary in April.

    Happiest of birthdays to you, Jen! I always enjoy these outake posts, and especially enjoyed the ones with your cat. I was also struck by the different hairstyles and Loved them! Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

      My first outtakes post was really nervewracking — I took a deep breath before hitting the publish button! But since then, I’ve just rolled with them, and now I look forward to them. When I get a really good (meaning really BAD) outtake, now I cheer and go, “Yes! That one will be so good for the next outtakes post!” 😀

    Happy belated birthday 🙂 My favorite part about these outtakes posts is that you inevitably post at least one that I don’t think should be an outtake at all! This time it’s the one where you’re clearly laughing in your chambray shirt and coral skirt. You just look so happy!
