Uninspired

Lately I've been very uninspired when it comes to clothes. For the past few months I haven't really been as interested in the latest fashion fads or constantly updating my wardrobe. In fact, I would now rather spend my hard earned money on things for our future house and eating out, or even just groceries. I do enjoy food shopping far too much now I think. Perhaps it's a sign that I'm becoming old and boring, or just more sensible and have different priorities. I check the ASOS and Topshop website about once a month now, whereas it used to be practically everyday. I actually felt a pang of guilt the other day when I bought that red stripy t-shirt below from Asda for £4, because I didn't need it.

I feel like I've lost my blogging mojo when it comes to outfit posts. These are some recent outfits I have managed to snap before rushing out of the house to work. When I get home in the evening though we are either house hunting, relaxing, cooking or baking, or going for runs and to the gym. Could it be? I'm practically an adult now? I guess I just have different priorities at the moment. Also constantly feeling guilty for not commenting on everyone else's blog is not relaxing at all. So, from now I, I think that I will blog for myself. I will blog when I want to about what I want, not feel guilty for not replying and not feel guilty if I can't post regularly. I know it's easier said than done, but I feel that for my sanity I need to do that. 

Anyone else feel like this with their blog?

  1. I feel EXACTLY the same way. Opened iPhoto to fix an outfit post and just felt all blah and decided to go out and watch a movie instead. :/

  2. It's your blog so you should blog about whatever you want to. I for one would be happy to read about house hunting/decorating as I'm in a similar position of wanting to buy things for our future house.

  3. I really like your clothes posts but I love reading about your life and just general day-to-day things so don't feel like you have to stick to certain topics like fashion in order to have a successful blog my dear! :)

    I think the success of sites like LJ shows that people are interested in others for more than clothes updates! You had a fab LJ and I think Afeitar is brilliant because you blog about what makes you you! :)

  4. I think this is what we are supposed to do with our blogs really.. I mean, it's just an hobby, isn't it?

    do what you feel to do, write about what you want and don't feel guilty, blogs are not that important after all :)

  6. i think you can tell when people blog because they feel they 'have to' which is a shame, coz it should be a fun thing! you're totally right with what you say, blog when you wanna, about what you want. i think people who read your blog (well speaking for myself here) are interested in YOU, things you're doing, your life (woah creepy klee) so post anything! at least you know i'll read it ey haha. love all of these outfits btw, you have the best style xx

  7. I know what you mean about food shopping. I can flash round a clothing store in 30 seconds now whereas a slow hour walk round Waitrose makes me a happy bunny.

    Plus, I had the choice of a lovely white lace dress and some new throw pillows for the sofa yesterday. I went for the pillows /old

  8. I can completely relate and I think your posts are interesting whether they are about outfits or not, varied blogs are more interesting in my opinion. Also I feel old these days as whenever I have been in Topshop lately I've felt like I couldn't find anything I liked!

  9. I totally know what you mean. Blogging for yourself ensures you still enjoy blogging. Which is the whole point afterall.

  10. While I am still, *ahem* very interested in clothes, I love reading blogs with a real mix of content. I'd love to see more food posts, homey posts, running posts and anything you'd care to share!

  11. These outfits are really cute! Have fun with this new phase in your life!

  12. It doesnt look like you've lost the mojo! You look great. x

  13. I agree with this completely. My life has been changing a lot recently and I've been asking the same sorts of questions. I'll still be reading, whatever you're posting about! x

  14. I totally agree - i think half the reason why I don't have a million followers like some people do even though i've been blogging for nearly two years is that my blog is all over the place. I don't have a key thing I blog constantly about that would bore me. I guess readers don't like that either but at the end of the day its my blog, its about me and it'll stay that way hehe x

  16. You've already read my thoughts on my blogging mojo - it actually seems to have come back a bit this weekend, but recently I just haven't been in the mood for it. Judging from the comment reaction on my blog, and the ones you're getting on here, no-one seems to mind. Take a break hun. It sounds like you've got plenty going on in your life at the moment.

    Is the house hunting going well?

  17. I think everyone goes through busy times in life where there is just too much going on to make blogging a priority. You will be much happier if you share things you're excited to share, comment when you feel like connecting, and take photos of whatever's inspiring you at the moment. People are interested in you, not just your outfits, and will likely be interested to read whatever you decide to blog about:)

  18. do what your heart tells you!

    p.s. your hair in the second picture is the best!!!

  19. Oh I totally know how you feel! I've been so lazy with blogging/commenting on other blogs lately. And I agree, you have no reason to feel guilty. I mean, you have a REAL LIFE. When I first moved out of home, all my budget went on food and things for the house, and I practically never bought clothes unless they were a) on sale and b) necessary! You have great taste though and aren't a fashion victim, so I'm sure anything you buy will be a great investment :)

  20. I feel the same way sometimes, don't worry! That's why I don't blog outfits all the time because there are so many other things I would rather blog about! It's completely natural to feel a bit uninspired!

  21. I used to be so much more into fashion but my spending priorities are now firmly fixed on groceries! Sometimes I think we just go through these highs and lows with different things, I'm sure your inspiration will come back, but I have to say I have enjoyed your home / running posts just as much as your outfit posts!

  22. It's your baby, do with it as you will. Life is too busy to fret about something that should be a pleasure.
    If you enjoy it, then your reaers will too.
    Good luck with house hunting :)

  23. I think everyone should treat their blog like a diary, so certainly post about what you're enthused about at the moment as it will be the most fun to read!also this time of year is funny as summer fashion is a bit non existent and we have a looong way to go until autumn (thank god!) xx

  24. I go through phases like that. I'm working 6 days a week and attending conferences at the moment, my career is my main focus. I have 3 months off for summer and I will be going to lots of nice places and doing some shopping so I will blog more then. I don't want to force anything, somedays I take outfit pictures and don't like them so I just don't post anything xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh I totally feel the same way right now. I feel guilt over my most recent posts because they've been PR type things, but argh, outfits just aren't flowing right now.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've been feeling just like that, it happens to me when the seasons change I think. It's not hard for me to let it go, because I have very few readers. Hope you find a pattern that suits you soon and feel peaceful with it. Don't worry about comments, just keep writing from the heart.

  27. I just don't do outfit posts as people are not interested in seeing someone like me showing them my clothes, I love your clothes posts though as you have great taste. I do like the homey type posts you have started to do though.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sometimes I feel like this, i think every blogger goes through it at some point or other.
    I think your outfit photos here are lovely though!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like the outfits in this post, but I think we all go through times like this when we have a bit of a lack of inspiration.

    I love to read everyone else's blogs and get ideas and inspiration. I have found lots of inspiration on urs and I think u just have to go with what ur into at the time and what u love, otherwise u'll get bored!

    I'll be interested to see what u blog nxt!

  30. The £4 top looks fab! I love Asda for random clothes bargains - I've started doing food shopping online mostly now so am probably saving myself a fortune in clothes! Know exactly what you mean about blogging sometimes - have hardly had chance to post recently and when I do, feel I need to read back and comment on blogs first which has meant I've delayed posting stuff myself. It's funny because I started blogging just to keep a personal record of my baking so I just have to try to remember that!

  31. ME! I can completely relate to that. Since we started our whole traveling thing my main focus has been to keep a sort of travel-diary on my blog, but at the same time my comments have dropped, which is so discouraging. It's so silly to worry about, but then again it's hard not to. So I've been reminding myself to have fun with it and post what I want to post. It seems to be a super common thing for bloggers to go through!
