One thing for me about being a style blogger - I feel there is kind of a pressure to be ahead of the game somehow. Whether it be getting and wearing the latest arrival out there (and doing it before anyone else), the urge to jump on a trend bandwagon (because you don't want to get left behind, do you), or the need to think of the most unique ways to wear things while still having a wearable outfit - you gotta be with it be a style blogger.
Take now for instance. I feel like since July ended, I've been seeing a ton of folks in blogdom prancing around non-stop in leather jackets, fuzzy hats and sweaters and big ole boots already. I mean, I get it, it's back-to-school time for a lot of folks, fall clothes are just more creative, and some people are probably over the heat. And yes, it's new stuff.
But come on, it's still August. We're still a month out from it technically being fall and it is still really hot in most parts of the States. Leather and boots seem a bit much for me, literally. I mean, I've still got warm weather clothes I haven't worn yet.
Like this top which I've wanted since first sight, but waited and waited until it hit sale plus additional % off. I guess if I wait any longer to wear it and show it on the blog, other folks will be rocking tights and coats!
Are you already in fall gear or are you trying to squeeze every bit out of summer as you can?
