First of all, don’t get me wrong. I have a pretty good opinion about myself, I just do not think I am a good fashion blogger. A content creator? Maybe, but even that sounds too fancy. I am basically a high school student who enjoys sharing her outfits on the internet, and feels extremely happy when she receives even one short comment.

The thing is, I feel like calling myself a fashion blogger (It’s in my Instagram bio) is sort of a…lie? To me, being a fashion blogger implies a certain level of knowledge which I don’t exactly possess, implies being able to take pictures in a public setting without screaming and running away every time a random person stops to look at you. I know, it’s stupid, but I feel like I’m being judged and I am shy anyways so it is a major thing. Can you imagine how difficult it is for me to find a good place with no people for a photoshoot? Almost impossible.

Furthermore, my camera is not the best for taking street fashion pictures, I don’t have as much time as I’d like to write posts and edit photos (I blame school for this one) and you can obviously see this because I post once every seven years. Incredible, right?

To be honest, I thought I was going to do much better. Not better as in, having tons of subscribers and comments, but as in writing more often, having great ideas for blog posts, stuff like that, because currently, I suck. However, I am always willing to improve and I know for a fact that I won’t ever give up on this. It’s my dream. Even if it will actually take seven years for this blog to become something good, it does not matter. I am proud of my lil baby, I am proud that I finally took the initiative and did something I have wanted to do for so long. The only important thing I need to do right now is to keep going. (Yes this post is meant to encourage myself and, why not, you, to never give up).

I will learn more about fashion – just to know what rules I’m breaking, obviously, not because I want to avoid them.

I will find time to write better content – because my (two, three?) readers only deserve the best.

I will figure out how wordpress works – there are still so many things I have no idea how to fix, but that’s what google/youtube is for, am I right?

I will do it.

I solemnly promise to suck less at being a fashion blogger.

  1. Aw I think you’re being too hard on yourself, your blog and photos look great! But you’re right that there’s always room for improvement. And now a lot of bloggers are starting to share their tips so there’s lots of help out there 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words! I’m trying my best, and I get inspiration and tips from amazing blogs like yours <3

    1. Thank you, you’re too kind! I don’t feel like I have discovered what my style is just yet, but I’m getting there.Your blog is absolutely fabulous, by the way <3

    1. I actually wondered if I should leave the title like that or not, glad I made the right decision. Thank you so much!

    1. Thank you, Jessie! I fell in love with the boots as soon as I saw them, knew I had to get them. I was trying to go for a monochromatic look, and I must say, I am no match for you! I adore your style!

  2. Ooh, you’re gorgeous and a great fashion blogger!! And I love your outfit, the skirt is so cute 🙂 don’t be shy at people looking at you, they always do

    1. Thank you, Susanne! I’m so glad I bought these boots, they’re my little treasure now and I wear them almost every day xx

  3. You’re being waaaaaay too hard on yourself lovely! This is the first time I’ve seen your blog, and posts, and they’re well written and the photos are beaut! x

    1. Oh my god, thank you! It was actually super messy, because I’m really bad at applying nail polish, but I thought I’d just roll with it haha

  4. I love your socks and shoes. They’re great! That’s such a cute and funny post. For the most part, people express their personal style, so I usually categorize them more as style bloggers, but fashion and style often intersect anyways. I used to do fashion blogging since I actually used to write mainly about runway shows and trends, so I’d say fashion blogger. Now I try to say style blogger because I realize it is so different from actual fashion reporting. I think everyone just assumes that it’s mostly style blogging anyways though, right? 🙂

    1. Thank you, Miki! I actually haven’t thought about that before, but it makes so much sense! I guess that I’ve been reading so many so-called “fashion blogs” which actually showcase personal style, that I’ve completely forgot the difference between the two terms. I’ll definitely try to say style blogger from now on <3

  5. yeah, you cannot pose in front of other people, but at least you can laugh with tears in front of an entire committee! That’s a step in front, girl! I don’t have to tell you that you’re gorgeous! keep it going and always be the best version of yourself! ❤ #bestchairever

    1. =)) omg thanks for confirming my inability to pose, and thank youuu <3 Can't wait to laugh with all of you again!
