Honest #OOTD

Since I’ve had time to reflect on life without overly positive one-liners, I wanted to use this opportunity to share some honest captions with you for some outfits, or rather #ootd’s (outfit of the day), that I’ve sported in the last few months.

I haven’t been on Instagram in nearly three months, but one of my favorite past-times as a twenty-something is the art of coming up with a Good Caption.

In my spare time, I run an account dedicated to my personal style (I’ve said it before, but I am a lifestyle blogger™, thanks) and it is home to my some of my best, punniest captions. The truth is, however, most captions tend to rest on the laurels of cliched phraseology. Because I’ve had a self-induced drought on the posting front, the people have been deprived of these gems.

Since I’ve had time to reflect on life without overly positive one-liners, I wanted to use this opportunity to share some honest captions with you for some outfits, or rather #ootd’s (outfit of the day), that I’ve sported in the last few months.
