Winter / Fall style | striped blazer, blanket scarf, blue bag | North Carolina Fashion Blogger (1)


  1. Your words really resonated with me. Thank you for sharing. I am a total people pleaser and I was just talking with my sister how it is both a blessing and a curse. I love your bright blue bag. So fun!

  2. Oh Molly…I love you. I love these posts where you’re more vulnerable – I think it’s awesome that you’re reflecting more about what makes you both comfortable AND uncomfortable. I’m similar to you in that I’m pretty comfortable on stage (I did a lot of acting and performing in high school and college), but I am super awkward and uncomfortable when I get to know people in a small group. It’s the weirdest feeling!!

  3. Oh my goodness… are just so precious! Your outfit is adorable…may be my new fave…and I love your honesty. The only way we can ever improve or change ourselves is to identify those areas we feel we have weakness and step outside our comfort zone.

  4. I think we all face personal challenges and often push ourselves to be better versions of ourselves in the new year. I know I need to stop trying to do it all. I’m a wife, mom, blogger, vlogger, full-time employee and business owner. i cannot do it all!! But i try! lol. we’re all hurman, and all we can do is try out best! Thanks for hosting! I’m new to your blog and LOVE this look.

  5. I completely know where you are coming from Molly! To be honest I’m more of a one to one person! It has truly been a challenge for me and totally out of my comfort zone to share on my blog! It hasn’t been until this year that I’ve found “Me” or “My Voice” when blogging and that’s after I went into a “blogger funk”.

    Sometimes growing is also a bit out of my comfort zone. I know riiiight! Crazy. We all have our comfort zones and sometimes pushing ourselves past them brings amazing results.

    Love your blog! ♥

  6. Hi Molly!

    Long time reader, first time commenter 🙂 I absolutely love Silly Being Molly! I love how you live up to your blogs name and you are never afraid to be a little silly! It makes it fun to read and why I keep coming back. I have been blogging for about a year, and it has been such a wonderful experience. I have so much and never knew how many hours go into getting a blog up and running!

    Happy Monday!

  7. Molly for someone who’s uncomfortable in front of the camera you’ve sure produced some amazing shots for this post – the photos are nothing short of AWESOME!! Your energy and sense of fun is so lovely to see… I assume that’s you forcing yourself out of your comfort zone?!!

    Do you know what I honestly don’t whether I’m a people-pleaser or not. I’d like to think I am but then again… I think I need to ask someone else!! Plus I’d much rather talk to a group of people than have a one-to-one conversation with a stranger. That’s *really* scary.

    Thank you for hosting, my lovely (and I forgot to say: your top/scarf combo is gorgeous – they complement each other beautifully)!

  8. Oh man can I relate to ALL of this! On my blog I feel like I’m an open book, and then throw me in the middle of a blogger meet up, I’m super awkward… But then have me teach at church the women’s class every other week in front of people I also don’t know, and I rock it… The truths of social awkwardness at it’s finest!

  9. I love your outfit so much! And I’m uncomfortable in groups of people and in front of the camera too. And I’ve definitely been a people pleaser but it’s something I’m working on!

  10. I’m so a people person and I’m not good at stepping outside the box at all! Oh and I’m in love with this color combo! The plaid, the stripes, the pop of blue? Just love it!

  11. Love, love, love this outfit! Every single piece. It’s one of those that makes me think I need to run out and buy a striped blazer, that scarf and a cobalt purse.

  12. Loved that you shared your thoughts, Molly! I feel like I’m a contradiction as well. I don’t feel comfortable speaking in public but feel pretty comfortable meeting new people. Given the right environment, I’m okay speaking in public and sometimes if I’m not comfortable with the environment, I’m not myself when meeting new people. Go figure. I think we all react to our environment depending on how safe we feel in it. Anyway, love the plaid scarf with the striped blazer. Such a cute look! ~Cynthia

  13. Ooooo- I love me some self reflection! 😀
    I am so deeply entrenched in this right now and how to express myself so that it can help others. Thank you for sharing – and I totally get it!

  14. Love this post! I am all about pushing outside my comfort zone. Most people don’t realize I am a huge Introvert and I push myself daily to not become a recluse! Your post has given me the push I need to keep going outside my comfort zone! Thanks and love your outfit!
    xo, Lee

  15. You look adorable! Love this outfit and thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself – I can relate 🙂


  16. I feel very much the same way Molly. I hate taking pictures of myself. And while I am comfortable talking about fashion with my blog friends, I am not comfortable sharing my blog with my real life friends. I think it is because I fear they will think I am full of myself or snobby (which I am neither). Thanks for the inspiration to continue stepping outside of my comfort zone! Great look today too! Susan
