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.
I SHOP BUT HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!
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!
