Things in the blogging world aren’t always what they seem. Like this post for instance. I shot this outfit at the end of June, and it’s just now making it to the blog. haha! There is SO much that goes on behind the scenes, and I can’t even begin to get into it. The bigger my blog gets, the crazier it gets, and this week was one of those weeks that I was feeling pretty overwhelmed. It’s really hard to juggle a family, a full-time job, and a blog. As glamorous as it may appear, the stress and work behind the scenes is not so pretty. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE blogging (otherwise I wouldn’t still be doing it), but sometimes it can be a lot. Emails rolling in, collaborations to respond to, products coming in the mail to be reviewed….sometimes I have a hard time keeping up. At the same time, I’m feeling very blessed that my blog is growing! Plus, this week I was having some technical issues with my website itself, so that is really nerve-wracking for me. One thing about blogs and social media is that they are kind of a “highlight reel”. Everything is almost always planned out and made to look as perfect and visually appealing as possible. But since I like to keep it real, just know that I have bad days too where I’m grumpy, my hair is a hot mess, and I stay in pj’s all day. My life is far from perfect and I have issues just like everyone else! Just sayin’! 😉
So on to the outfit! You girls know I love a peplum AND olive green. So this tank was a no-brainer for me (plus, hello, it’s on clearance for $17)! It also comes in black and a really pretty print, so be sure to check it out here! It’s really lightweight, which I’m loving, because it’s been 1000 degrees here lately! Plus, it will be perfect under cardigans in the fall. And have you tried a fuchsia lip with olive green yet? It’s my fave!
We don’t have a lot planned for the weekend, but I’m looking forward to some family time and snuggles with my boys. 🙂
Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend!
