So, I decided to take a month off from blogging. Actually, I take that back… I didn’t really decide to take a month off, I’ve honestly just been so overloaded with wedding details, work deadlines, and just life in general that my brain has basically been mush and as a direct result, I’ve had the worst writers block of my life. I’ve always been the type to work well under pressure, but I’ve also always been the type to let my stress levels hit the roof. It affects my relationships (holy freaking social anxiety), it affects my creativity, and it affects my ability to be productive—but hey, I’m only human and I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes things are hard. I get so dead-set on all of the little details that I often lose site of the bigger picture which is easily one of my biggest weaknesses and something I’ve always struggled with.
Lately, I’ve been dragging myself to the office every morning, dragging myself through the day, then dragging my ass back to the couch after work, all while feeling completely uninspired in every regard. My weekends feel like they last all of about 10 minutes and are usually consumed with all of the wedding planning and chores I put off all week long. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my life and my “problems” are hardly even blips in the grand scheme of things but to put it plain and simple, I’ve been in a total rut lately.
I’ve been spending so much time playing catch up with the things I feel like I have to do, that I’ve totally neglected the things I want to do—like writing. My cooking has been uninspired—cant blog about that, I’ve hardly done any shopping so I have no new outfits to showcase—again, cant blog about that, no time for photo shoots—what do you know, can’t blog. Honestly, it’s a vicious cycle I’ve worked myself into over this past month and I’m determined to work myself out of it, which I’m sure y’all can tell based on the fact that I’m literally blogging about not being able to blog right now, LOL. Balance has always been something I’ve struggled with (both physically and mentally) but I’m tired of wallowing in my flaws and using my struggles as excuses for why things aren’t the way I want them to be (I do this more than Id like to admit). I need to work harder and be better. So having said all that, ya girl is back and while my content may not always be perfect or 100% consistent I promise to continue to work at it because it’s what I love and I don’t spend enough time on the things I love.
On another note, I feel like it’s my moral responsibility as a blogger to also provide y’all with my outfit details soooo yeah, I’m obsessed with this flowy pink poka-dotted wrap dress and these adorable peep-toe booties. They’re both so cute for summer, but are also great transitional pieces as we inch closer to fall (how is it already August??). I linked the exact dress and booties below, but I also linked some super similar alternatives that I’m totally digging too.
Thanks for reading my rant (this post ended up so much longer than I intended—oops) and for bearing with me during my month of self-reflection. Have a great week and stay-tuned for more content to come!
