Every blog post that I have been posting lately has me more and more excited about my blogging journey. These summer photos with all of the flowers have me in my element. Every post I have created lately feels like the content I have been trying to create for a long time.
Just starting out as a blogger I have been trying to find my unique voice and create a solid brand. It is a stressful process. Every blog post requires a lot of work and sometimes your not completly happy with the end results. But when I look at the photos I have been taking most recently I know I am on the right track. I have realized with these photos I am encompassing more of what makes me who I am. Showcasing elements that truly make me happy. Not just slapping up a photo of myself that I think looks good.
I know I have been wearing a lot of Gal Meets Glam dresses lately, but I really cant get enough of these timeless dresses. This adorable blue and white floral dress makes me feel like a English teacup. Every photo I see of myself in these dresses makes me feel like I am seeing the real me. The girly girl that loved playing dress up as a kid. These dressses has made me realize my defining style. Dresses made for a princess. Dresses to wear to a garden party, Dresses to wear to high tea. And all the other girly things that I love so much.
My stlyle has evolved a lot in my life because every road that I have taken has defined my style even if it was the wrong road. I have always used fashion as an expressive tool to showcase who I am and how I am feeling. Looking back at photos that I took almost a year ago I can see how much I have changed. I am saying to myself why did I wear that, or what was I thinking. Finding myself in trend traps that are just not for me. But that is one great thing about this crazy time of documenting everything with photos. You can see how different you were a few months ago and see where you have been going wrong.
One of my favorite Instagram Influencers Sophia Roe wrote out a list of every little thing that makes her happy. This made me think about the things that make me happy. Like summer flowers, beautiful dresses, walks in a new neighborhood full of beautiful historic homes, day trips exploring a new mountain town, and being surrounded by nature. Then I have been thinking about things that I have been holding on to for so long that make me so unhappy, like my job at a grocery store. I can see why it has made me so unhappy. It strips away every defining piece of me that I have been gradually trying to dig up and piece back together. It has created so much negative impact on my life that I am just realizing how much it is holding me back.
Every mistake I have made is a lesson that makes me realize what I am doing wrong and what I need to do to step it up. Making mistakes and reflecting on them is the only way you get better. Starting this blog has been the best thing for me. It has given me more control on how I want to live my life. Giving me a space that I can do anything with letting my creativity run wild.
It can be really tough when you have no idea what your doing and there are days I feel like I am making no progress. But that is when I kick up my work ethic and push out my content anyway I can. Leaving my fingerprints in every crevice where eventually people will start finding little pieces that I have left behind. I am still trying to figure out my unique voice, but I feel I am getting closer, with every beautiful and inspiring thing I come across, I can continue to create content that is uniquely mine.
