I have something to confess.

I don’t really know anything about fashion. And lately, I feel like I know very little about style either.
For the past 5 years I’ve been a “Fashion Blogger,” and with that title I always feel an obligation to be a fashion expert. I feel like I should always be stylish, fashionable and perfectly dressed.

Recently, I’ve been handicapped by that feeling.

I never feel inspired to do posts, because I worry that I’ll say the wrong thing and look silly. And, beyond just the blog – I rarely feel good about what I’m wearing. My dresser is stuffed with items I never wear – either because I don’t like them anymore, I don’t have the right things to wear them with, or they don’t fit. I end up wearing the same thing over and over, and just going with what’s comfortable – not what’s “fashionable.” And it makes me feel like a horrible failure of a fashion blogger.

So, I’m making a change.

It’s a two-part adjustment – one part blog life, and one part real life.

be-yourself

On the real life side of things, I want to do some serious closet rehab. I want to purge the things that I don’t like or wear, and rebuild a wardrobe that works for me (and makes me happy)!

On the blog side, I want to explore what that new wardrobe should be. I want to shift from being a fashion blog to being a style blog. I want it to be an exploration of style, and a journey to discover what personal style really is. I don’t want to be an expert voice. I want to be a learner and an observer.

SO, what changes might you, dear reader, notice?

1.  More Personal Stories – I want to share the steps I take on my adventure to discover my personal style (with posts about cleaning my closet and refining my wardrobe). And, my current Real Life Style posts will change a bit as well – I want to make them more about things I love wearing, not just perfect outfits carefully chosen for a blog photo shoot. I want to be open and honest – especially when I have no idea what I’m talking about.
2.  A New Perspective – I want to infuse a personal style element into every post I do. So, for example, a celebrity get the look post would focus less on where to buy the items the star is wearing, and more on what it says about her fashion habits. A post about a trend will look at how to incorporate trends into an overall style, etc.
3.  More Consistency – this is the big one. I want to be inspired to post so that I post more. I am pretty excited about this shift in direction, so my promise to you is more posts, more often. 🙂

Thanks for sticking with me. Hope you’re excited for this new adventure. I know I am (well, excited and scared)!
