292 weeks ago I started a link up A Labour of Fashion and last week for the first time I did not post. I have been conflicted I loved seeing the fashion of those who linked up but interest has faded. So I gave it a test, took a break, discovered I could still move forward with out A Labour of Fashion. YIKES.
Knowing when to say Goodnight
It is tough letting go of something but sometimes it is time. Blogging today is not the same as when I started and that is not a bad thing. I have grown and explored new options and concepts.
While I started with style I quickly pivoted to life and decor and food. What is right for me? I will never stp sharing my outfits but my style has changed. Covid has me working in my basement and dressing differently.
Here is a shocker I just packed away 100 pairs of shoes, 73 statement necklaces and 9 garbage bags of clothes. I will be donating it all to a worthy organization to help women starting out in the workforce. I am stunned that the act was freeing not fraught with anxiety. OK truth be told they are packed but still in the housee so maybe when they leave I will feel anxious.
Hello and Good Bye
So sorting through the excessive amount of “stuff: i owned made me realize I want to be more than the shoe girl. Maybe I want to b the Converse girl because I kept all those. Sadly I still have 100 pairs left in my closet but I feel I have taken a positive step forward in defining the new me.
Covid had me searching my blog and rediscovering who I was when I started. I want to share my tables and my wreaths. I want to talk about companies I support and love. I want to share Lou on the blog and maybe music. I know that is possible even with a link up but I think this is my time to pivot.
Working full time and blogging is hard and I don’t want to give up my passion. I need to think strategically about what makes me happy. I also need to balance why have a linkup if I don’t have time to visit your blogs and see what you are wearing. 292 weeks and it is time to bid the linkup Adieu.
I will still be here, I will still be visiting you and I hope you will still stop in to see what I am up to.
But for today let’s check in one more time. Show me what you are Fall Styling? Me I am sticking to summer becuase it has re-appeared in Ottawa. Shein and Converse have been my go to work style this summer.
