Instagram is a good and bad place. It's good in that it's connected me to people that love clothes from all over the world. It's bad in that maybe you may feel the pressure to have the perfect life attending various functions wearing fabulous clothes, eating ice cream and drinking pretty coffee drinks all day. From what I have been reading, I think there are people that feel they need to wear a new #ootd to make their feed interesting.
I lead a very fulfilling boring life and I am fine with that. I go to work, work out, pick up my son and head home for homework and dinner. On the weekends, it's grocery shopping, laundry and my son's sporting activities and attend birthday parties. My life is far from perfect, I struggle with weight and don't know how bloggers/instagramers eat so much ice cream/donuts. I have read somewhere that a lot of it is staged for that perfect picture and most don't even eat it. I don't know about you, but I am not about to go and waste a tasty donut.
Well I digress....I do love Instagram in following people and getting exposed to brands or style I would not try otherwise. One of the stylish I follow is Clinton Kelly who was a co-host of What Not to Wear. Way back in 2013, he did some collaboration with Macy and showed some great styling ideas. I fell in love with these boots and bought them.
Here's another reason I love Instagram. I fell in love with these heels which unfortunately sold out pretty quickly. I posted it on Instagram asking for anyone that if they see them in the store to please let me know. One of my sweet friends posted that she has a pair that she was returning because it was too big for her. Lucky for me, they are my size. I am excited that these beautiful heels are making it's way to me.
What do you think of Instagram and do you feel the pressure to post perfect pictures?

Here's a throw back to November 2013 when I wore these heels (original post here). I have to say, it's sort of fun to look back at pictures. I sure look like I could've used a few more minutes of sleep.
