Confessions of a Fashion Blogger

I will admit, the black and white bold stripes trend is a tough one for the vertically-challenged such as myself. And nothing is harder than wearing bold¬†horizontal stripes. But…go big or go home, right? I dusted off this beautiful Rachel Zoe dress that they gifted to me about a year ago, and decided to “fun it up” with some knee-high boots, tights (it was a chilly day) and cinch it with a fluorescent pink studded belt. I already had all of my stuff ready to go for Monday in my work bag, so I just grabbed it, and off we went to grab some frozen yogurt. Yum. Remember to link up your posts here on Wednesday, if you’re participating in the new challenge.

Confession: I feel like I’ve hit a ceiling with my blog. If you’re a blogger yourself, you’ve no doubt had those moments when you feel what I call the Hamster Effect: you’re spinning that wheel as hard as you can but you’re not getting anywhere. It can be discouraging, and this definitely isn’t the first time I’ve felt this way–it tends to pass with time, but inevitably I find myself getting frustrated when the needs, desires, and wishes I set for myself and my blog go unrealized.

Every blogger has a different set of priorities for what makes them feel satisfied, or acknowledged. I’m not insinuating that I don’t appreciate everywhere this blog has taken me–because trust me, I do. It’s more that I feel disappointed in myself for not continuing to see the growth I’ve become accustomed to, as smug as that may sound. Maybe there is a plateau effect. Is this the best my blog will ever be? Or do I have more in me?

Have you ever felt the same way? Tell me I’m not alone in this.

Sure, I think there’s a valid reason: I’m just a lot busier this year than I have been in previous years (thanks to a little thing called residency). I’m on a mission to reinvent myself, and I’m not sure where it will lead. New design? New venture? New direction?

We’ll see where it takes me.
