As I sit and reflect over the past year, I find myself amazed at how much I have actually grown as a person and as a digital influencer. For me, when I began my journey into becoming a blogger, the toughest thing to deal with was that my opinion didn’t really matter because I was not well known yet. I do not consider myself that well know currently but compared to a few months ago, I’d say I’m starting to make my mark as each day comes. Some of the bloggers I was inspired by I now share conversation with and that is one of the things I love about being a blogger is that it truly is a community of individuals from all walks of life.
I love that bloggers are started to be taken more seriously. A few months ago when asked what I do, my response would always be a hesitated answer of ‘I’m an aspiring blogger’ with hopes that I wouldn’t be judged too harshly. When I stopped being ‘intimated’, I started to find my own voice and realized that my voice is actually my greatest asset. For those who wish to become bloggers but feel they are not good enough because there are so many other successful bloggers out there, please get rid of this mentality because everyone has to start somewhere. I know exactly how you are feeling because I was there not too long ago.
About this look:
Both the top and skirt are from Forever New and are on sale. I bought both items separately and they just work beautifully together. The skirt is light-weight and perfect for Summer. The top can be worn both casually and for special occasions depending on how you choose to dress it up. Paired with a hat and heels from River island, we’re ready for that perfect Summers day.
