I’ll admit it, I’ve really been dropping the ball on the blog. Honestly, I’m feeling a bit lost and un-focused lately and I’ll put this out there and say I’m not sure where I want this blog to go next. Outfit posts lasted a whole two seconds considering my phobia of photographs of myself, and I find it hard to open up to you guys and get on a more personal level. Then I read a post on Kendi Everyday where she admitted she was feeling depressed and suffering from panic attacks. She has millions of readers and she went that deep, I have very few and I can’t even talk about my wedding without feeling like it’s “TMI”. Well guys, we’re going to take this to a new place… sometimes. In between the typical posts I’m going to make sure to inject some of my life, some of my real joys and some of my real problems. I hope this will take Glitter & Gold to a new level and allow you all into my life a little bit more.
First things first: my fear of photographs comes from a deeply rooted self-image problem. Lately, I’m finding myself leaning more and more towards jeans every morning when I search for something to wear. It’s been really hot, and I have a really long walk to work… I’m looking for no fuss. Lately, my jeans have been of the slouchy, ripped, and cuffed persuasion. Here are some of my favorite ways to style jeans. Not gonna lie, you have to switch up washes, mainly because you don’t want your co-workers to think you’re wearing the same pair of pants every. single. day. Switch flats for heels, silk tops for thin sweaters, and vintage tees for tailored blouses.
