Just wanted to put this out there: I’m not deliberately ignoring anybody’s DMs or comments, and I’m sorry for not being super responsive lately. After quitting STES recently, I’ve been able to experience this elusive feeling of not needing to be on my phone all the time, and I’ve just run with it. I’m at this weird point where I feel like I don’t know how to be a “good” influencer anymore. I worked so hard to hit 10k followers, but once I did, I tried to pump the breaks a little bit, and yet things still kind of took off from there. Recently things have plateaued to a more manageable level thankfully (I can’t tell you how many weeks I stayed at 38.4 even though in months past there was always consistent growth, despite not actively trying to make it happen). I of course am beyond thankful for the attention the community pays me I really don’t take it lightly that that many people care to see my outfits and/or hear what I have to say. A certain sort of responsibility comes with the territory though, as it should (to an extent, anyway). The need to pump out new content all the time. The obligation to respond to questions. The desire to stay “relevant,” whatever that may mean. The sense of responsibility can be a little overwhelming and frankly sort of paralyzing at times, so it’s times like right now where I struggle a bit with juggling it all. I hope it’s not taken personally if I don’t respond as much as I should. At the end of the day, I’m not a blogger, a personal stylist, or a business owner I’m just a person trying to share my outfits and some body positivity, and unfortunately I can’t keep spending hours on my phone each day. Maybe this is just some sort of temporary summer fatigue, but for now I’m going to embrace it. Never fear though—I’m sure I’ll be back to my near-daily posts soon.
Also, this jumpsuit is everything! I can’t stop wearing it because now that we’ve hit 90 degree weather, it’s one of the only things I own that’s office-appropriate in this heat.
