Hi y’all! Long time no see! Or in this case read *monkey face covering eyes emoji* I have ghosted on the blog and the gram for far too long and frankly the only thing to do here now is to just chat with you as to why.
Back in May, I was able to start a new gig that has me going 8 hours a day but frankly I’m left mentally drained by the end of it. Working on my blog was creating more of a stress factor than a stress reliever so I decided to step away for the first few weeks. While I gave myself a blog-free break, I was still checking out my favorite bloggers and I ended up psyching myself out from creating new content. Geez, we truly are our own worst critic! Thoughts like “is my content worth looking at” and “who is taking time to read” were discouraging. With that mentality it just created another excuse to delay from blogging. Weeks passed and before I knew it, I celebrated my birthday in June. I was able to spend it with loved ones who kept asking how my blog was going. Being able to talk about my insecurities with them, made me realize I should share this with you. The whole point of me loving blogs and following blogs is the authenticity of it so I should be authentic with you guys here in this little corner of the internet. The insecurities got the better of me, y’all. It blocked my creativity but admitting it is a step forward for me to create new content. I truly love writing and sharing style tips with you all. I appreciate your patience and support whoever you are….whether it’s one of you or a dozen or more.
And on a lighter note: hope everyone is having an awesome start this month. Already August but it feels like we can get away with dressing in summer and fall outfits at this point haha. One of my favorite patterns that are perfect for those in-between seasons outfits is gingham. You can wear it with favorite white denim or skort! I lucked out by finding mine in Zara a year ago but if I find it available somewhere else I’ll let you guys know.
Hope you guys enjoyed my little chit chat today. Have you guys been feeling this same type of way lately? How was your summer? Any plans this fall?! Would love to hear from y’all ❤
PS- Check on my Instagram @TrendyCitrus this weekend! I’m going to share something pretty rad on my IG story ;D
