This jacket has proved to be quite the buy! Every time I wear it I feel as if I was bundled in a fluffy and warm blanket in the comfort of my own home. I seriously wish I could wear it every day but then I would look like a picture frame (as we say in Mexico). Having a fashion blog is a double edged sword at times, I need to try to be creative with what I wear but at the same time, I want to get fixated in my old ways and wear my favourite items over and over again.
Somebody asked me once; “Don’t you have to wear new clothes on every single post? Isn’t that what you bloggers do?, to never repeat an outfit?”. What a complete misconception, seriously. Yeah, its tough reinventing your wardrobe every single day; “I freaking love this dress but I wore it already twice, how can I make it look different?, Will people notice?, Will they judge?”.
Being in a bubble where things always have to look brand new is not realistic for most of us, and if you have a blog, try to take that big load of pressure off your shoulders. I do believe in trying to push creativity to reinvent your wardrobe, even if that is hard, but having to post new stuff every day is not realistic, yet it seems like thats what some people demand, to always see new things. The blogging community is supposed to be a source of inspiration, on how to wear your favourite items in different ways, not a source of pressure to always buy new things.
Reuse and recycle, wear what you like in different ways, wearing the same things twice, three times or even ten won’t make you look bad, it will make you look like a normal human being so the pressure is off! ;)
