Spring or Summer? + The Reality of Fashion Blogging

Spring or Summer? + The Reality of Fashion Blogging

 
 

I am honestly so confused with this weather. I don't think I've ever been so confused with New England weather before. 

But here are some serious behind the scenes of being a blogger who blogs about fashion.


What's your favorite season? Mine used to be fall when I was young, but that's only because my birthday falls on Autumn in Australia. 

But coming to America Spring didn't automatically become my favorite season just because that's when my birthday was. I don't know why, I'm not a big fan of Spring but I think it's because of the following phrase: April showers bring May flowers. And I hate rain. 

But is anyone else like that? Where they love the season their birthday is at? Or don't love the season when their birthday is? Let me know!

Reality of Fashion Blogging You Might Not Know

Do you know what the reality of fashion blogging is? 

Well, let me share with you the reality. So I usually preshoot my outfit photos a solid month or so ahead of time. Which usually means the weather hasn't caught up with whatever outfit I'm wearing. 

In this outfit I am wearing a supposedly spring appropriate outfit, but the day my boyfriend took these photos for me, it was so cold and windy that I couldn't even brave the cold. It was the kind of chill that went to the bones, that made you freeze in a certain position. Or the kind of chill that made you wish you were snuggling up in your bed. 

Either way, the post of this post is just to share that you never know what bloggers go through to get "the shot". As easy as posing looks, it is painful because you gotta pay attention to the weather, the lighting, the angle, etc. etc. 

Don't take any fashion bloggers posts for granted, because trust me, a lot of work went into them.
