I'm not going to lie that it's been hard to get back into my normal routine and all the life stuff after our vacation. Fortunately we made it to the store, so we don't have to keep looking at an empty frig so that's good. I always try to clear out the frig when we're going to be gone longer than a week so that nothing spoils. It makes for an interesting food situation when you get back though. But enough about me wishing I was still on vacation, let's talk about this fun floral skirt!
This floral print skirt and top were actually part of the outfit I wore when I made my television debut last month. I was honored to get to work with Ashley Kahn, a local stylist who was doing a live segment about "recycling" fashion for Earth Day on a local news station. She took me over to Goodwill to see if she could find an outfit for me and what do you know, she found a midi skirt! I know surprise, surprise but I can't help it, I love them so much!
I'll admit that I was a bit nervous about being on television and had no idea what to expect, but there are 3 things that I learned. So if you ever find yourself need to make a TV appearance, here are the things you need to know.
1. Things are chaotic.
Until you see it in person, you really don't know how much equipment, work and people it takes to make the magic of TV happen. People are constantly going in and out, you don't exactly get told where to stand or what to do once you're on the set. So when in doubt just stand there and smile.
2. Everything changes last minute.
The segment was originally supposed to at 9:00am, but then when we arrived it was apparently more like 9:30am. Then the segment went from 4 - 5 minutes to more like 2 - 3 minutes. Be prepared to wait and just go with the flow. Usually the best thing to do is whatever the person with a headset on tells you to do.
3. Minutes feel like seconds.
I know that people say time flies, but when you're on TV I think it shifts into hyperdrive. One minute I was walking onto the set and the next minute we were done. I didn't have time to be nervous because it went by so fast. It will be over before you know it. I'm happy to say that I didn't trip and fall, so I'm calling that a win for my first television experience.
Have you ever been on television before? I'd love to hear about your experience in the comments below.
