What inspires you?

To begin this post, I'd like to thank you wonderful readers for staying with me throughout the lifespan of this blog.  This is not my first blog.  I've dabbled in writing a blog for over 5 years now.  I love the sense of intimacy when reading a really good blog.  I love feeling that I know the writer.  It's like reading your favorite book, and new chapters are added all the time.  It's awesome! 

Being the author, though, sometimes I wonder what to write about.  I wonder about what inspires me, and I wonder what my readers will be inspired by.  I wonder if my blog should be solely about one thing (like fashion) or if it should span my interests.  I feel in a period of flux.  For a while, I only did fashion posts.  But it started to feel disingenuous.  I am more than fashion.  But, dear god, please do not think that it doesn't move me!  I love a great outfit just as much, if not more, than anyone! 

I am not going to commit to writing every day.  I've tried that, and it's only set me up for massive failure!  I'm not going to commit to any number of posts a week, either.  Because, sometimes, life just doesn't allow for that regularity.  What I can commit to, though, is only posting about what feels real and genuine to me: blogging about the whole me, rather than just an interest or two. 

That all being said, how awesome is the photo above?!  I love all of the colors and the liveliness of the prints.  I feel such movement and excitement from this photo!  I've based my wedding off of some of these colors, and whenever I'm flipping through my Better Homes and Gardens (yes, I read it and love it!), it's photos with these colors that stop the page-turning.

What colors inspire you?

  1. I love this and can totally relate.
    I haven't been in blogland for 5 years, but I do know exactly what you mean when your writing feels ingenuous or like your forcing the writing and try to please others. I found that when you are just yourself and write when you want to write it comes out better than you know.
    AND I love the photo! Great colors, and I love mixing those patterns.
    I am personally reeeeally loving nudes and peaches right now. There is something about a good nude that is so just peaceful and sensual to me.
    I loved this post, and look forward to reading more.


Thanks so much for commenting. I read every single one. :)
