A Little Added Edge

The past few days have been gloomy here in FL, so I've styled a look to match. Smokey eyes with a comfy dress and an edgy twist -- an even mix of edgy and minimalist pieces to create a modern statement look. 


Wearing: Shabby Apple / PB Sands dress, Forever 21 jacket, Vintage Gucci bag, Sperry sneakers.


As I'm sure you all can probably tell, I've been in a blogging funk lately. I haven't been posting near as much as I used to, and here's why: I feel like my blog is losing its views to Instagram! Not near as many people check out my blog as they do my Instagram, and while I get a decent amount of blog views, the overall feedback is much livelier on Instagram. It's so ridiculous how this is happening to a lot of bloggers now, but I suppose it makes sense. 

With my realizing of the fact that folks would rather view my pictures on Instagram rather than visiting my blog, I figured I probably shouldn't waste as much time posting all of my outfits on here, since a blog post takes a lot of time and effort to create. I've decided to post all of my outfits on Instagram and social media, but I will post the ones I love the most on here. I may not write up as much text to go along with them either, but I will most definitely write a sentence or two about my outfits when I feel I have something specific to say. 

Also, lately I've been looking more into starting the YouTube thing, and while I've never been much of a video gal, I'm starting to like the idea of it. I get even more shy than I am in real life when being recorded, so I guess that's why I've never fully committed to making videos. But I've been working on some OOTD videos along with some simple makeup tutorials. I'm not saying they're the greatest videos, but I've been making efforts at creating new video content! 

Thank you all for being such amazing readers of my blog -- I appreciate it more than anything! I'm not going anywhere I promise, just making some changes that I feel appropriate for the future of my blog! 

xoxo -- Carly
