Hi! It’s me! I’m alive! I have never taken such a long break from blogging and let me tell you, I really, really missed it! Things have been nonstop for me, with trips every few days for the past month (I’ve legit been living out of my suitcase!) and a zillion projects on Instagram that have been pulling me away from blogging. Can I let you in on a little secret? I prefer blogging verse posting on IG. I really do. I’m so grateful for all of the projects I get on BOTH platforms, but I really love the art of storytelling through a blog post.
The thing with IG is that it’s fleeting content. People will look at your photo for a few seconds and then scroll onto the next photo and the next photo… On a blog, you can really take time to pour through posts, read through the copy, and bookmark things to come back to again and again. Sure you can save things on IG, but with a website – content lives on, and is relevant for YEARS. I mean, some of my most popular outfit posts are from 5 years ago! You can search for specific content on a website/blog, whereas Instagram doesn’t have a search tab within each person’s page.
Instagram feels trendy to me, more click bait-y, and it’s brimming with “look at me!” staged captures, whereas blogs feel more genuine and personal. You can subtly tell a story and make your point… and really build up to something. But, that’s just me – call me old fashioned, or traditional I guess!!!
The Perfect Silk Blouse
Anyways, let’s talk about my outfit shall we?! Ok so this blouse is a dream, and I picked it up when I was in LA a few months ago. It’s from an up and coming brand; Nanushka, who makes gorgeous, quality pieces. It’s a pricier blouse, but it’s made of the thickest, most incredible silk, and the tailoring is perfection. It’s one of those pieces you slip on and feel like a million bucks in. We ALL need a blouse like this – trust me. It also comes in black (SWOON!)
I wore this blouse with my favorite Re/Done jeans which make your butt look AMAZE, and leopard pumps. You could easily wear this top with a leather pencil skirt, white jeans, blue jeans, or black trousers. The black version of the blouse would look stunning with tan trousers wouldn’t it?
