10 Reasons Why I am a Shitastic {Personal Style} Blogger

There is no doubt that I have been a shitty blogger lately. Call it what you want but I have been completely uninspired and retreating just a bit. I also think that Instagram is just way easier to share blurbs and pictures. So in a way #instagramatemyblog. Aaannnnnddd I have spent months, no joke, months, trying to figure out what I want from my blog. The voice I want to use. Content I want to share. How I want to grow. A whole mumble jumble of thoughts that I can't eloquently put together. So. There's that.

So what better way to begin blogging again than with a list of why I am a Shitastic Blogger. Now I cannot take credit for the idea behind this post (uninspired, remember?). I read blogs for a living and came across this post from Kym of Travel Babbles. I am going to go ahead and call Kym a genius. Haha. Because that ONE post actually got me thinking and writing again. ;)

Why I am a Shitastic {Personal style} Blogger

1. I HATE taking selfies and pics of myself. 


2. I also have the HARDEST time self promoting


3. I am SO over the arm parties. I like a couple bracelets. But 10 or 12? Why?

4. I own NOTHING from J. Crew and don't think that Jenna Lyons is that creatively forward. (I am going to get hate mail for this one)

5. I don't post outfits that I actually never wore. And most days I wear work out clothes now that I work from home. 



6. My shopping like a pro days are totally over. But I do know that the cool "blogger shoes" are the Rockstud Valentino's. Which I would buy. And Rock. Especially in the leopard print. But I don't have money for that!



7. I haven't bought a fashion magazine in months. Not even September issues. And I used to be addicted.

8. It irks me that everyone thinks they can be a style blogger because they get dressed everyday or bought a trendy item. (that just makes me sound mean. I know. I am really not though. Sometimes I wonder why I try to be one too.)

9. I don't really like blazers, stacked heels or kitten heels (even when they have a designer label).

10. I hate that {it seems like} no one knows the difference between Fashion Bloggers and Personal Style bloggers (and that some are both).



Well friends, I am back. To an extent. I have missed this online community and interacting with you all! Please let me know what you think!

I also have some outfit posts to share.
Crazy, I know!

  1. Good to see you back and interested to see where blogging will lead you now. Remember it's your space, so don't be afraid to use it however you see fit, it doesn't have to have a purpose or exact focus point!

    1. You are so right! It is crazy how things change as you grow and make decisions. I love writing, I love fashion and I love photography. So hopefully it will all come together to best represent me now. Thanks for reading and still being interested! Totally makes my night! Xo

  2. Gosh! This is one of the best posts that I've read in a loooong time! So much so that I read it over a few times! I agree with you on quite a few of these points, and I appreciate your candor. The only "downside" for me is that you have reignited my interest in those damn Valentino heels! ; )

  3. Kitten heels? GROSS! If you're not going to wear high heels, there is no point. And I don't care who hates me for this. :)

    I'm terrible at taking photos too, but hey... You always look gorgeous and I love seeing your outfits!

  6. you just gave me even more reason to like you.
    kitten heels are for women over 60 who can't wear 3 inches or up anymore. I'm not a J.Crew fan. Personal style is WAY different than everyday fashion. I wish the world would wake up and see the difference.
    I don't post any outfits I don't actually wear in real life or take off immediately after taking photos. Unless it's like 80 degrees and I am wearing leather leggings. AND Insta is the best way to get outfit photos. Sometimes lugging the "big" camera is too much work. I personally LOVE your style and that you are always true to who YOU are. Keep it up. Shitastic bloggers unite.

    1. Totally miss you more! Jenna Lyons is the creative director for J. Crew. You would know her if you saw her. I just don't love what she puts together. Wah wah! Thanks for reading and commenting! Love you!
