Blogging has really been an amazing experience, it has really brought me out of my comfort zone, given me my style back after having kids and really made me laugh at myself. For example I have this super cute star crewneck sweater from Wooden Ships that is from their beach collection, so what better place to take photos of it than at the beach!
A lot of the time I laugh at myself when I take photos but maybe not as much as I have when taking these photos. It’s funny because you have an idea of how cute your photos would be with you in the water until you get in the cold water and try to create those photos and realize they don’t work as cute as you thought they might.
What does happen is you get some photos with a real genuine laugh because you cannot do anything but. And if your curious which pose I had in mind, it would be the one that I shared below just so you can see when you are trying to kick water and capture the photo. I’m sure it might actually work if you took a bazillion photos and finally caught it at the exact time. However I took several and only ended up laughing at myself because you forget water resists your foot so the actual of kicking almost makes you fall over and not look picture ready. Either way I love this sweater and the photos are just too fun!
So enough laughing at me and my lovely funny photo let me tell you why I love Wooden Ships! First I mean look at this sweater! I have the star crewneck sweater and also their mom wow sweater and I wear them ALL THE TIME!! Seriously!!! The knit is loose and the shape is loose, but that perfect kinda loose if you get what I mean. It is cozy, comfortable and flattering all knit into one great sweater and just exudes casual chic. It has been the sweater that I have been reaching for constantly since it arrived.
The company Wooden Ships also gives back, strives for a low carbon footprint and have even created their own factory so they can be in control of keeping the product fair and ethical. Currently they are running an Earth Mama Capsule collection to raise money for the Rainforest Action Network among many other causes they have donated to. I am really impressed by this company, their passion and of course their knit sweaters. I actually won my first sweater Mom Wow in an Instagram giveaway so I am very thankful because it has introduced me to such an amazing company with such a beautiful sweater.
What are the ways you laugh at yourself? I really want to know!
Have a great weekend! xo Jen
