Play the field

Happy Wednesday everyone!

 We are halfway through another week and are almost onto the weekend! Yay!!! Two days ago I went hiking and forgot to throw on some bug spray so I am suffering from a major bug bite. I get really swollen when I am bitten by a Mosquito. My entire side of my leg is swollen, so that is why I am wearing ripped jeans in today’s post! But in a crazy way, I sorta am loving it! This day it was so effortless and fun! I love looks that look so effortless because you really get to see how I dress when I’m basically not blogging.

Recently I have been having a lot of problems with blogging. I have been starting to feel sorta discouraged with my blog. I feel like sometimes I spend so much time looking at the negatives and what others may have that I forget to celebrate my success. However, I feel that we all as bloggers go through that phase where the creative juice can’t flow and we feel like we aren’t enjoying it as much. I know for me I spend so much time staring at Instagram looking at the big deals on there that I become discouraged my material doesn’t look like there’s. But at the same time, I feel you just have to keep pushing along. 

Anyone have any tips for this blogging bump in the road? 

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!

    You look so beautiful, Victoria! I love your top, the lace details combined with that rosy/mauve color are so lovely! I, too, get really swollen when I get bitten, supposedly that's an indication that you're allergic. Try soaking some ice on it every so often to help with the swelling and avoid scratching (I know how hard that can be!). As for how you feel, I've been there many times. It's hard not to feel that way when we're constantly seeing everyone's best moments on display. But, it's important for us to remind ourselves that those who are successful in the blogosphere started somewhere, too. Many of them have been doing it consistently for 6-8 years, so we'll get there, like you said, keep pushing forward! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having the best week so far!XO,

    How fun is that bag?! SO cute! And don't get discouraged or down about your blog! You should never compare yourself to others! It's definitely hard but you are you and that's what keeps people coming back!

    This lace top is so pretty and I love the gorgeous pink color! I know what you mean when it comes to blogging. It's sometimes hard not to compare yourself to the bloggers that have been out there for years, but I just try to tell myself that and to be myself! I hope you bug bite gets better!xo, Rachel A Blonde's Moment

    What a cute bag, but not as cute as that gorgeous top you have on! I can certainly relate to your feelings on blogging. When I start to feel that way, sometimes I just back away and try to take a bit of a break from social media. That way I'm not constantly comparing myself to others. I hope you come out of your rut soon.You look stunning in this monochromatic look! Pink is definitely your color.xo, Whitney and BlairePeaches In A Pod

    Victoria, first of you look beautiful! I love the lace top! Secondly, we ALL have these moments. It's hard not to compare yourself to others but keep reminding yourself why you are blogging in the first place. It's because you're passionate about it! Keep on doing what you are doing and success will follow. The key is to never give up! Big hug!xoxo,

    That bag is perfect! And I hear you, lady- blogging can get discouraging, especially when the field is so competitive. Just keep doing you and those creative juices will be flowing again before you know it! Consistency is key. :)-AshleyLe Stylo Rouge

    I love your top! And I totally agree with the ups and downs of blogging, it's really hard not to feel down on yourself sometimes! You've got this though!

    June 17, 2016 / 6:59 pm

    I know, we have all been there regarding blogging, but just try not to compare yourself to others. Once I learnt that, then nothing really let me down because we are all human, and even those that seem to hve a "perfect" life have flaws. Love your bg and outfit here! x/Madison
