Leaving a food and wine show yesterday I noticed a graffiti mural on the side of the building and asked my friend to snap a few pictures in front of it. They willingly obliged but when I mentioned the photos were for my blog they seemed confused. A blog with of pictures of yourself? It was a slightly awkward conversation, the concept of taking photos of your daily outfits and sharing them on the internet does seem a bit crazy when you say it out loud, but it's fun!
Style blogging forces you to examine your wardrobe and challenges you to step outside your comfort zone. After a few months of blogging I've become a better shopper, I've noticed gaps in my wardrobe and shop accordingly, rather than simply buying an item because I like it. I also wear a lot more of my clothing rather than falling back on my favourites.
Yesterday I dressed for comfort but not necessarily for practicality, because wearing a white dress to a wine tasting event is just asking for trouble! Luckily it all worked out in the end, the dress is just as white as when I arrived.
