Trouble With River Cities

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

I've been thinking a lot lately about how every single person in the world has a blog. If you see a group of well dressed ladies, chances are at least one of them has a style blog. There's nothing special about seeing some random person wearing clothes on the internet. I realize this. It's over done and at this point, it's kind of boring. Bloggers don't leave comments like they use to. Everyone is trying to "make" it and now it's a competitive rat race of C/O clothes. I think part of this also stems from the over saturation on social media and the idea that bloggers are brands, not people. When bloggers started getting famous and already famous people started style blogs — it all just sorta lost meaning. I still very much enjoy blogging, but I miss the heart and the connection that got us all here in the first place. I've taken a huge step back this Winter from blogging. No formal hiatus, but drastically less than before.

I recently deleted Facebook off my phone and turned off Twitter notifications and it's been the best couple of weeks. Internet detoxes are important for the mind. I'm feeling better about blogging, the internet and the state of my wardrobe. But I also think part of that is the sunshine. Boy, has my soul needed the sun.

This dress is a recent addition to my wardrobe and it's so perfect. I would wear it all day every day if I could.

My sister took these photos. She does not understand "full body" shots and probably hates when I beg her to snap a few shots. But she's a good sport. So thanks, Nicole!
