This Camouflage jacket was one that I purchased last summer and to be fair I recall wearing it ALOT. Kind of like the way you can become obsessed with an item and you feel the need to incorporate it into basically every outfit...well that's pretty much what happened. Like a lot of these "fashion phases" of my mine it quickly fizzled out came winter and was pushed to the back of my wardrobe. It was only when one of my friends was wearing hers that I thought I should dig mine out, for its first '2017 outing' now that the weather is getting milder.
On a different note excuse the impromptu (edging towards) 3 weeks absence on the blog and social media- it wasn't intended. But to be honest recently I haven't felt an urge to blog and create content, I think its because I've been creating content for this blog for 6 years now which might come as a surprise. And when you're doing something for that length of time it can sometimes (not all) become a chore to "blog", almost like a necessity because you've done it for so long.
In fact I don't think I've left such a large amount of time between posts before, even if I was on holiday there would still be post going live. I think also recently I've been busy with uni work and my live music photography work (insta: @c.p.images) , so in these types of circumstances your energy tends to edge more towards things that are going well and your busy focusing on.
Saying that I think it's actually a really good thing to just step back from something (not just blogging) to re-access your "goals" and for me re-focus that energy into creating higher quality content that I'm proud to produce. Because I may not have the biggest following in the world, but the readers I do have I appreciate for sticking with me on this journey. When you've "grown" up on a blog and documented your style since you were 15 years old, stepping COMPLETELY away would bear the resemblance to a "break-up", and that I don't think is necessary. On a side note if anyone would be intrigued to hear about my thoughts on "growing up on a blog" let me know, and I can put something together.
