It amazes me how well ‘Maroon and Navy’ go together. They are so chic and fashionable on so many levels. I feel this look couldn’t have turned out any better for the weather we are having. It is just warm enough to start wearing dresses again, and I am getting so excited for that.
Somedays, the only thing that will make me feel better is the outfit I’m wearing. Yesterday was one of those days for me. I had a total of 1000 things on my mind that I, quite frankly, couldn’t sort through. Obviously, to have 1000 things on one’s mind is a lot. I’m going to ask you all a question I decided to ask my boyfriend yesterday. Have you ever had days where you are so distracted by what you’re not doing or accomplishing?
Yesterday I couldn’t even do life because of it. I couldn’t even comprehend what I wanted myself to do to get to where I wanted to be. I was looking up journalism master programs, PR Firms, and so much. I was thinking about the best way possible to keep growing my fashion blog, the things I should be doing, and the things I shouldn’t be doing that I about exploded. I got completely overwhelmed.
Of course we compare ourselves to others and have others to look up too. I don’t look at other fashion bloggers in a mean, jealous, or unhappy way. I am beyond happy for them and wish them nothing but more success. I still, however, question when I will find the key to my own success.
My definition of success will always keep growing. I have had a lot of success in the beginning and I will continue to have more success in the future. I just want my future success to keep growing bigger and bigger until I feel I have made it, but then again what does “made it” really mean?
I think about Aimee from Song of Style. She has had years of experience in this fashion blogging world, where as I’m still pretty new to it. How did she get so big? What can I do to get to where she is? Today, while going through my quarter life crisis, I grew to really understand her has a person and what she is doing as a blogger and influencer. I have also been following her for while, but I never took the time to check out her blog and content.
I feel this is one thing that I have been lacking in: checking out the blogs of the big bloggers that I really enjoy. To my fellow fashion bloggers– we need to all start doing this. Now every fashion blogger doesn’t want what I want, but we aren’t just doing this for fun. Trust me, at first it’s all fun and games, then turns into a passion, and then turns into the thing you want to do everyday, and you couldn’t imagine yourself without it.
That is what blogging turns you into. It is seriously the best feeling in the world to create content, inspire others, and do what you love. I’ve always been a ham in front of the camera, and I’ll never be tall enough to be “America’s Next Top Model” so I had to go out and find my own way to be a model. It’s great that I found my modeling niche through my fashion blog. That is one life dream that I have accomplished.
I’m sitting here with two more dreams I still have yet to accomplish, but they go hand in hand. I don’t really feel like telling you all yet and jinxing myself.
As always, thank you for reading.
