Doing My Best Fashion Blogger Impression.

I had anxiety posting this, ya know why? Cos these pictures weren't taken on a DSLR. I thought my followers and friends would disown me cos I wasn't one of those fashion bloggers who seem to have their shit together. How stupid is that? I mean it's hard to ignore how far blogging has come and recently, I've been feeling left behind and a bit of a fraud.

Everything is glossier and more editorial which is great but what happens to the average joes of the blogging word? I can't be like those other fashion bloggers, I don't look like them and I've learnt the hard way that it's just not me. All I see these days scrolling through my numerous feeds are a mix of tasteless ads and robotic dialogue but yet this kind of content seems to be the most successful. Well appears to be the most successful, I really can't tell these days with bought followers and spammy comments. 

The bloggers I love are those I can see myself being friends with, the ones who I believe are my next door neighbours. Those bloggers who show all sides of their life. I want to see your cellulite and double chins and I really want to see your latest ASOS bargain. This to me is relatable and content I want to see, heck even create. Everything seems so unobtainable now with the photoshopped birds in the background of every picture on Instagram and the excessively face-tuned limbs that makes my eyes roll so far back into my head. It's not 'aspirational', it's fake, depressing and it bores me to death.


THE CHECK BLAZER


WHAT I'M WEARING

Blazer |  T-shirt | Jeans | Necklace | Bag | Shoes


So here's a couple of major awk pictures of me taken by my boyfriend (with great force) on his iPhone. Bringing back authenticity, one bad iPhone shot at a time. I want to document my outfits and what I buy more often but I'm too scared to post because I don't think it's good enough. But it's real, it's me and I think it's way better than the fake shit that's out there. 

Yes I am standing in a mouldy side street, yes I am balancing on cobble stones and yes I am trying my best at flinging my hair like a Tresemme advert. Also yes I am THAT short. I'm just trying to do my best blogger impression. But seriously we were going out for dinner and I wanted a picture of my outfit cos I thought it was cute so this side street just had to do, ugly drainpipe and all. One last thing, my t-shirt was only £4.99 and I got it in three different colours.
