Hello everyone and welcome to the third and final blooper reel from my Thanksgiving OOTDs! Today, we’ll be looking at the craziness from my Guest Star OOTD and it is one of my favorite photo series that has been created for lifewithlilred. The outfit was, of course, on point but it was the best because my darling niece, Valerie, wanted in on the photography fun too! Val makes me proud every day but this just hit different – especially considering that there was a point when she refused to have her picture taken. Look at her now, stealing the show!
Just TT being and looking crazy
Lol, Val holding on for dear life
This picture cracks me up!!
She’s coming in hot and…..
Valerie is my lil bestie and everything is infinitely more fun (And tiring!) when she’s around. Every day that I get to spend with her is special and whenever I’m feeling down, all I need to do is think of the funny things that she says and does and it never fails to make me smile! She is my partner in crime for Taco Bell and Mexican food dates, story hours, slumber parties, and now OOTDs! I truly think we have a future influencer on our hands and that time might be coming sooner than later – she puts her own outfits together every day! #proudestTTever
Every moment from mine and Johnny’s three day Thanksgiving extravaganza was awesome but having Val be a Guest Star was one of my favorite parts. Being an aunt and uncle is such an exciting adventure for us and I cannot wait to celebrate Christmas with our sweet nieces and nephew. Only a few more weeks!! ❤
What is one of your cherished holiday memories? What puts you in the holiday spirit? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Cardi Party OOTD! With three Thanksgivings in a row, Johnny and I were exhausted for basically the entire week afterwards. It was well worth it, though, because we had an amazing time with our families! Thanksgiving was the perfect occasion to get back into fashion forward posts on lifewithlilred and I was ecstatic because I missed it oh so very much. Of course, there are sure to be some unflattering pictures among the hundreds that Johnny takes and I took it upon myself to share them with all of you. Check out the bloopers from my Cardi Party look:
I LOOK GREAT!!!!
Hoisting myself up from this handy little bench that Johnny and his dad made
Startled by some type of bird activity going on
Something STANK and I’m pretty sure it’s this picture
The classic wife look of mild amusement and disbelief every time your husband says something uncouth
Starting to peter out halfway through Thanksgiving round two
Looking like a straight up donkey after Johnny said something funny
High five very nice!!
Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful, amiright?! Lol but seriously… A while back ago I saw this post on Facebook about a mom who will happily take pictures when her kids hold up a camera no matter what she looks like. Rather than refuse to get her picture taken, she’ll smile. And, instead of vetoing the more than likely unflattering picture upon seeing it she would say something like “I look awesome” or “I love my smile”. The blooper reels from my OOTD posts kind of follow that same concept as well as poking some good old fashioned fun at myself and it is a segment on my page that I am really proud of.
My sister claims that I take way too many pictures (As does Johnny as you can see!) but I just can’t help myself. No matter if it’s a “good” or “bad” picture, it’s important to me to have all of those special moments to look back on later and smile. Showcasing these yikes OOTD shots is something that I would have never done during earlier lifewithlilred times. However, I think displaying these shots for the world to see shows my growth as a person and I hope it encourages others to do the same. Is it really a “bad” shot if it makes someone laugh or feel comfortable with any of their perceived flaws? I think not! 😀
Keep it posted tomorrow for bloopers from my third and final Thanksgiving OOTD and then it is onto more fun here on lifewithlilred. See you then!
Are you a constant photo taker at family events? How many pictures do you have on your phone? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Comfy Cozy Thxgiving OOTD! For three Thanksgivings, I served three separate looks and now it’s time to check out the pics that most definitely didn’t make the first cut. This post is part bloopers and part story time because somehow while Johnny was snapping pics, something reminded me of one of the lamest things my bestie and I did in high school and I had to tell him all about it. Naturally, I had no idea he was taking my pictures throughout this lengthy tale but now I get to share them with all of you! Check it out:
I LOOK GREAT!!!!
Just a lil pre-Thanksgiving nap standing up
Making haste to a less sunny location – good thing I wore my running shoes!
STORY TIME… And realizing it was all captured by my loving husband lol
I can not remember for the life of me what brought upon this manifesto of a high school aged bestie and I but apparently I really needed to tell Johnny about it for the fifth time. I’m sure all of you knew a girl in high school who stuffed her bra with tissue or toilet paper but have you ever heard of anyone who used the same method for their butt? We did! In high school, there was this girl who stuffed her butt and it was not just a rumor – there was evidence to back it up. From tissue sticking out of her pants to her butt deflating after each class period, she was not fooling anyone and literally the whole school knew about it.
For shits and gigs, my best friend and I would pay homage to this person by stuffing our butts Every. Single. Time. we hung out. Needless to say, we went through a ton of toilet paper at our parents’ houses during our high school years. Was this a necessary thing to do? Absolutely not. Was it hilarious to us? ABSOLUTELY. We were like women possessed and our hangouts just didn’t feel right without it. It was, honestly, the dumbest thing but it still cracks me up to this day. In fact, if you look at the fourth image down, I’m pretty sure I’m about to say “butt” lol. Hey, what’s being in high school without doing the stupidest stuff ever?! Good times.
Am I particularly proud of this story? I mean… kind of lol I guess we just had to match the utter ridiculousness of the situation with some ridiculousness of our own. And now we can all share a laugh on the blogosphere fourteen years later! 😀
What is one of the dumbest things you did in high school? How about one of the dumbest things you did as an adult? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Johnny For A Day OOTD! This Halloween costume was so much fun to style, shoot, and wear. It was a blast to channel my inner Johnny and I have found myself wondering how he would style a costume dressed as me because he doesn’t have the luxury of fitting into my clothes lol. I loved so many of the shots from this OOTD that it had to be broken up into parts. As always, however, some of the shots were definitely of the “yikes” variety and includes the following:
I LOOK GREAT!!!!
Don’t mind me, just struttin my stuff
I had no idea that I could even make this face but we learn something new every day!
Just here looking like I tied one on before passing out trick-or-treat candy
This picture is terrifying
Wandering off on an adventure to create the perfect shot…
Nailed it, obviously lol
About to attempt to hoist myself back up lol
Stumbling on my way to get my phone haha smh
There was nothing scary about my costume but some of these pictures completely make up for that! My original plan was to dress up as an undead bride but there were two glaring issues. 1) I had no costume makeup and most importantly 2) I didn’t feel like shaving my legs lol this is my time to hibernate! Bored with all of my costumes, dressing up as Johnny seemed like the most logical choice and I am so glad that I went for it. In fact, I could totally picture myself wearing this outfit or something similar again!
As with the spirit of trick-or-treating, some of the pics from this shoot were a treat. The ones above were a real trick, though, especially since I thought I was working it haha. That’s the fun of the blooper reel and I hope you enjoyed this costume series as much as I did making it! ❤
How was your Halloween? Are you in Christmas mode already? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Night At The Theater OOTD! Johnny and I had a great time during our date night of dinner at The Haunted House Restaurant and a not so great time seeing Les Mis at Playhouse Square. Talk about a snooze fest lol. Regardless, it’s always a blast to step out in a carefully styled OOTD with my husband. ❤
On occasion, my phone will do this weird thing that makes all of the pictures look blurry. It happened to be one of those occasions on Saturday night, making some blooper shots look like horror movie stills. I’m not mad about it because it’s perfect for spooky season! Check it out:
Slowly draining Johnny’s life force
I look terrifying lol
Just working what my mama gave me
Your classic “I just got engaged” pose
Johnny told me I looked like a bearded dragon when I lifted my coat’s collar and this is my interpretation of what a bearded dragon looks like:
Looking like Bette Midler in Hocus Pocus
My face when Johnny asks if we’re done yet lol
Creature of the night
Straight YIKES dude
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!!!
Just talking to Eugene……
Eugene is a kindly usher at Playhouse Square who noticed Johnny and I taking pictures when we straight ditched Les Mis. With pictures like the above, it’s hard to see why he asked if I modeled professionally!! He was a total angel, though, and insisted on taking mine and Johnny’s pictures and we couldn’t resist a selfie with him. Just a couple of fashionistas on the town! 😀
As I was going through the pictures of me that Johnny took, I was honestly fearful for my life lol I look so scary in some of them!! (Note that if my sweet husband saw what I just typed he would say I look scary in all of them haha) This batch of bloopers definitely lived up to the “yikes” portion of the good, the bad, and the yikes. I always fancied myself a horror movie scream queen but now I think that my calling is as the villainess!
With another fabulous date night and OOTD in the books, Johnny and I have truly been living our best lives this fall. I can’t wait to continue thriving together in the joy of spooky season! ❤
What is your favorite scary movie? Do you have any selfies with strangers on your phone? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Pumpkin Patch Party OOTD! While I love to show off the great pictures from an OOTD shoot, part of me likes posting the bloopers even more because it humors me. I am a firm believer in the phrase “waste not, want not” and I suppose that applies to terrible pictures, as well! Lol, check them out in all of their glory:
Spreading my wings and soaring
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!
Lol, there is this one strand of hair that stands up in Every. Single. OOTD. Shoot. -_-
Gathering up some leaves for the classic “throw in the air” shot…
Severely missed the mark because I look insane!!
Trying out what the kids call “flossing”
That face you make when you have a leaf on your butt and your husband doesn’t tell you
Adjusting my front…
And my back!
GREAT SUCCESS to the kid who was making monster noises at the pumpkin patch!!
As you all know, Johnny takes what feels like a thousand pictures in under ten minutes per OOTD shoot. Sometimes, I am model level WERKING and the bloopers are minimal. Other times, it feels like a majority of the shots taken are bloopers! It is such a mixed bag and the Pumpkin Patch Party outfit gave me a solid half winners and half total losers lol. Either way, it makes for a good time going through the end results. 😀
Johnny’s proudest picture from our time at Heritage Farms was, easily, the leaf on my butt. Once I pointed it out to him, he spent about ten minutes looking at it, laughing, and then repeating the process. He also made it a point to zoom in on this faux pas to really show off his handiwork. He claims he “didn’t notice it at all” but I am thinking otherwise *Face palm*. Regardless, he is the best blog husband so I can’t be too mad. ❤ 😉
It is a breath of fresh air to poke some good old fashioned fun at myself after talking up an outfit and pictures. Remember, for every good pic an influencer posts, there are probably twenty like the ones you see above!
What is your favorite segment on lifewithlilred? What is your ideal fall date like? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel of my Simply Spooky OOTD! These pictures were taken during a lovely date night at Sarah’s Vineyard with my main squeeze. Johnny and I had a wonderful time and I love that we are making a habit of weekend dates. It has also been so nice of my blog husband to make a habit of taking weekend OOTD pics too. What a guy!! Check out the bloopers from this look:
Future hand model? I think YES!
The cover of my opera album called “Vineyards”
An overwhelming enthusiasm for fashion
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!
Just kicking my feet back and chillin
I’m pretty sure this is when Johnny told me our food would probably be ready soon lol
So glad that Johnny captures everything, including my attempt of taking my jacket off
Jacket is off! Let’s take some more pictures!
Johnny has been taking my OOTD pictures for the better part of three years and I think that we have mastered the song and dance of the process. What originally started out as a somewhat awkward and time consuming feat has been perfected. These photo shoots take less than ten minutes which is a huge improvement from back in the day when it was a twenty or so minute ordeal. Talk about progress, baby!
I am so appreciative to Johnny for always helping his girl out and his rapid fire picture taking is what makes these blooper segments even possible. He also gets a huge kick out of the “bad” pictures! Every time I show him one I love, he’ll tell me “I know, I was there!” But every yikes shot makes him bust a gut lol. The give and take of marriage!!
The blooper reel is a blast for your favorite husband and wife OOTD duo and I hope that it is just as much fun for all of you. Keep it posted here on lifewithlilred for lots more fall fabulousness!
Does your significant other help with your blog at all? Who usually takes your pictures? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Summer In Fall OOTD! We are stepping into year eight of lifewithlilred with my goal in mind of lots more OOTDs so I hope that you are all ready for some fashion fun. Today, we are going to take a look at what didn’t make the cut during my last hurrah for summer shoot. Then, it is back to all of the fall fashion! Let’s get to it:
As always, I have no idea what I’m doing
Three cheers for lifewithlilred and this terrifying picture!
Surprised by my own butt
What a babe!!!!!
Just here getting my America’s Next Top Model on 😉
I LOOK GREAT!!!! 😀
How did I even get up here??
Looking like Heatmeiser from that one Christmas movie
Give me my phoooooone
Lol, what a HOOT! There is nothing better than a good ol’ blooper reel to make me laugh and these posts are, honestly, so refreshing to make. After taking pictures with Johnny, it might take me upwards of an hour to sort through the millions of pictures he has snapped. During that time, I am looking for the “perfect” pictures while weeding out the ones that aren’t up to snuff. You know, the ones where the lighting is just right, your face is pretty, body looks awesome, and the outfit shines. It’s enough to drive anyone crazy and it’s easy to start scrutinizing every single shot.
With the bloopers post, it’s so different because my mindset changes drastically. With a snap of the fingers I go from “wow, I’m working it” to “wow, I look terrible… perfect!” And that’s okay! For bloopers, the cringier the better and I have no shame in it. I am a huge believer in being able to poke fun at yourself and showing my entire photo taking process along the way. The good, the bad, and the:
^^^ Lol, had to casually toss this in one more time!
Has anyone had any blooper reel worthy moments lately? What happened? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah!
Hello!! I don’t know about all of you, but when it comes to pictures on my phone, I am basically a hoarder. I never delete anything and never really thought about it until taking pictures for my New Hair, Who Dis? OOTD. While Johnny was snapping away at one last location, he said “Oh no” and I thought that someone might have been in the shot. Rather, every influencer’s nightmare came true when he told me my phone was out of memory. It had me feeling pretty much like this:
Thankfully, this breach in storage happened at the end of the photo shoot and I knew that I would have to have a major deleting session. At first, the delete-athon was fairly easy because duplicates and screen shots of things that I would never buy was a good place to start. However, it just wasn’t good enough. So, I began to delete apps that I never used and that helped moderately but not enough too.
I realized that I would have to start deleting pictures with a less discerning eye and began the process of deleting blooper OOTD shots. And, in that moment, I was SO. Freaking. Glad. that I began the blooper reel segment from my OOTDs this past January. Without posting these shots that definitely didn’t make the cut, they would have been gone forever!
I truly do think that it is important to show what goes on behind every fabulous photo that I share in each OOTD post. I am far from perfect and unless you’re a professional super model, a lot of your shots are probably going to end up like this:
Not only do I think that these outtakes are encouraging for other bloggers, I also think that they are just hilarious. Johnny and I love to look back at the blooper shots and have a laugh and I hope that the same goes for all of you. It seemed like such a shame for no one to see this pure comedy gold and I think that it is refreshing when people poke some good old fashioned fun at themselves. It makes me feel like this:
Although a majority of my bloopers are no more on my phone, they are here forever on lifewithlilred and that’s good enough for me. Long live the blooper reel!
What is your favorite segment on lifewithlilred? What are the first things you delete when your phone runs out of space? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my New Hair, Who Dis? OOTD! I have had such a blast creating the bloopers for several of my past OOTDs and it is a relatively new segment on lifewithlilred. I have turned into a firm believer of sharing the entire photo taking process of an influencer because for every awesome shot there are probably twenty bad ones! The blooper reel is a true testament to that:
Johnny was cracking me up with an incredibly bad Alex Jones impression
I swear to drunk, I’m not god lol
My face when I see a dog walking by!! It was amazing!
I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!
Not sure what this stank face is for lol
Showing off some Dancing With The Stars worthy moves
Not sure what this stank face is for, either…
I have no idea what is happening…
If you’re new to the OOTD picture world and a majority of your shots look like the above, that is okay! I remember some of my first OOTD shoots and I was like “yikes” when looking through them afterwards. Practice really does make perfect, though, and you will get more comfortable the more you get in front of the camera.
I used to think that practicing my posing and facial expressions in the mirror was something only contestants on America’s Next Top Model did – but it really does work! Before every shoot, I spend some time in front of my full length mirror practicing different angles, movements, and expressions. With my little study session beforehand, I can take everything that is still fresh in my mind and apply it to my pictures. That’s how I end up with something like these and not any of the above lol:
That does it for my New Hair, Who Dis? OOTD and I hope that all of you enjoyed it as much as I did. Tune in tomorrow for my eight year Blogiversary stroll down memory lane. We will also be discussing new recipes and more OOTDs later this week. Year nine of lifewithlilred is starting off with a bang!
How do you practice before getting in front of the camera? What are some of your modeling pro tips? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
