BECAUSE I CAN9:28 AM
Lately I have been thinking a lot about this little blog and I feel pretty bad for slacking so much on posts. Not that anyone out there is dying to know what the hell is going on in my life, or what I am wearing, no. I feel bad because this blog has always been a little creative outlet for me and by neglecting it, I feel like I have been also neglecting taking care of myself in a way. This blog will never be a real fashion blog by any means, It will never have the most creative photos, or content. But each post will contain something I like, something, even if it isn’t all that extraordinary, that I think is neat. I never really address politics, current events or anything of the like on this blog (and I know a lot of bloggers are criticized for that), because I feel that if someone were really looking for that kind of information, they could find a better version of it elsewhere. I could voice my personal opinions on those matters, but as I stated before, this is my creative outlet. I will/have gotten on my soapbox and ranted on some matters, but this blog is meant to express myself in all of the small, everyday happenings that I deal with and how I can get through them in matters that prevent me from ending up in prison for strangling my co-workers. If putting on (what I think is) a cute outfit makes getting through a long day a little easier, I will share that. If posting pictures of my friends and I, all gussied up makes me smile, it’s on here. Same goes with the movies, books, and food I feel are worth mentioning on here.
That being said, I feel a great need to simplify things in my life right now. When I first started this blog, I was dabbling a bit in every trend I saw to see what fit me best. I would end up at Forever 21 and the thrift store every payday, looking for something to wear on the blog. Almost three years later, I own a house, have student loans to pay off, and honestly love going out and doing things with friends & family so spending so much money on clothing is no longer an option. Buying a ton of clothes from thrift stores is a lot of fun too, but at the same time, I end up with TONS of stuff that needs to be altered and are never worn. My goal right now is to simplify everything, clothes, unnecessary items, I am even thinking of having a yard sale-not that I have the time… but I honestly think I have found my own sense of style, that I am comfortable with, and that fits my lifestyle. Instead of being a “what is Sara going to wear next” blog, this has become a “how many times can Sara remix her favorite dress/top/shorts” blog. And I am happy with that because it is more realistic, and less stressful. I am not saying that I will never experiment with a new trend again, because I will, but I want this blog to become my creative outlet, where I can have my “me time”, and not something stressful. Of course I say this as I am facing a busy-ass weekend; life just has too many awesome things to offer at once! BUT, I feel pretty good about this and I am hoping it will improve how often I am able to do posts.
