A blogger that I follow on Instagram posted about how she’s going to stop pretending that she doesn’t repeat outfits. She pledged to be more real on her blog and her social media channels and I really connected with what she said. As someone who has been shopping almost entirely sustainably for the past year and a half, I just don’t have that many clothes. Most of the time I share clothes from friends and re-wear my favorite items. This skirt and this top, for example, I wear at least once a week throughout the entire year. I have also blogged with this exact outfit more than a few times before, and that used to really bother me, but with this new “real blogging” perspective I could care less if I repeat outfits on here because I do it all the time in real life. So expect more real-ness on the blog!!!!
Going along with the whole “real” thing, I have very intense opinions about certain shoes. But over the past two years I have completely changed my mind about my feelings towards different kinds of shoes. I used to cringe at the thought of Birkenstocks, but now I have two pairs and wear them almost every day. Up until a few weeks ago, I thought Chacos were the ugliest shoes in the entire world. Now I am deciding between two different styles to buy. And for as long as I can remember, I’ve hated mules. Even when they became super popular among bloggers, I continued to hate them. I hated them up until the very moment I tried them on and decided to buy these mules. Sure, they aren’t the cutest or most flattering shoes in the world, but they are SO comfortable. The one pair of shoes that I haven’t changed my mind on? Kitten heels. I still really hate those.
Tunes: I’ve been back at camp for almost two weeks now and my camp playlist has been back in action. “Reflections” by MisterWives will forever remind me of camp.
