Wardrobe Block

Wardrobe Block

We’ve all heard about the infamous “writers block” but having spent the last 40 minutes watching an episode about it on Jane the Virgin, I came to the realisation I’m in what I would call a “wardrobe block” (full disclosure – I’m coining that term right now 😉) and I think it’s something a lot of people will relate to.

Now as I’m a fashion blogger, doesn’t that sound completely ridiculous? Doesn’t the fact that my wardrobe is often overflowing with clothes contradict the fact that I still feel this way? I have some BEAUTIFUL clothes, shoes, bags, accessories – yet I feel so uninspired by what I wake up to every morning!

I sometimes think the pressure of growing my Instagram following has me all messed up when trying to pick an outfit every morning. I don’t pick out what I want to wear without thinking “Ooh, have I worn this recently? How will I picture this for Instagram?” which can make me feel a bit demotivated when it comes to pulling together a great outfit.
I seem to have plateaued on my social media platforms and definitely think this has impacted my love of getting dressed in the morning leading to what I’m now deeming a “wardrobe block”.

I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t even be bothered to share my outfits on Instagram as they’re not “worthy” or just a bit meh – the effort I put into growing it all just doesn’t seem worth the return I get back.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve got any tips on getting out of a wardrobe block and whether you’ve struggled with the pressures of keeping up with Instagram! Until Next Time

    Ughhh I can relate to this so much! I have so many lovely clothes but I feel like I’m struggling with pairing them together to create interesting and creative looks at the moment. Instagram DEFINITELY has a huge effect on it as you’re always thinking about what’s going to look good and fit with or contrast with what you’ve recently posted, blogger life eh! At least you’ll have some beaut pics of you in a wedding gown soon hehe!
