If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll see that I’ve only ever posted one outfit post, which was over 3 years ago. I posted it on a whim to be completely honest with you and I’ve wanted to start sharing regular outfit posts on here since what seems like forever. Reality? I’ve toyed with the idea of outfit posts for about two years, but the fear is just too much! I keep telling myself I’m going to overcome the fear of sharing outfit posts but will I ever actually push myself to do it? Will I ever be the fashion blogger I’d love to be? I have no idea where all of these rhetorical questions seem too be coming from. Anyway, today I’m here to talk about my fears around outfit posts and why I don’t think I’ll ever overcome them.
I guess body confidence is the biggest issue here. I’m not the size 8 skinny-minnie I once was. I wouldn’t say I hate my body, but I’m definitely not happy in it. I know I need to lose a little bit of weight here and there, and could definitely do with toning up. I don’t feel confident in tight fitting clothes, and always reach for jumpers or baggy tee’s; hense why I love Autumn for layering!
I know the blogosphere can be a lovely place at times and the friends I have are wonderful. However, it can sometimes turn really bitchy and not a very nice place. I’m a little bit scared that people would be judgemental, what if people don’t like my choice of outfit and laugh? I guess the only way to for me to overcome this fear, is just to post one and get it over with!
I’m waaaay too shy in front of the camera. Put be behind a camera any day, but as soon as I even think of asking someone to take said outfit post shots the fear becomes real and guess what? I chicken out.
Some of my favourite bloggers are fashion bloggers who are absolutely killing it! Maybe I’m comparing myself too much to the pro’s? I think that’s one of the downsides to this community, we all compare ourselves to each other way too much. Sometimes it’s good but other times it can really get you down. Especially with a platform like Instagram which is pretty much a must in today’s blogging community.
If you have any tips or advice on how I can overcome my fear of sharing outfit posts please let me know!
