Style rut and giving myself a kick up the butt

Alternative Fashion Blogger Foxxtailz
Oh hey annual style/life rut, you've decided to do your annual rear of your ugly head at the most inconvenience of times. Cheers pal much appreciated. I feel like I've been in a bad mood for the past 2 weeks, feeling ''that way out'' unmotivated not having my usual get up and go, I haven't been able to shake it and it's driving me nuts. That was until this morning, I woke up and told myself, fuck this shit and decided not to give into that little black cloud that's been following me for a while. I've literally been picking apart every single aspect of my life and I'm so done doing so. It's been a constant stream of comparison that I've let myself get sucked into which in turn has made me miserable.

I gave myself the weekend off from blogging as I've been exhausted, It was nice to do nothing and not worry about blog prep but then I found myself procrastinating getting back into. Every time I went to put an outfit together I hated it, wondering if it was blog post worthy, having a bit of a mental block and applying way too much pressure into a God Damned outfit. It was ridiculous. I felt like all my clothes had been seen before and therefore would just feel stale, just regurgitated outfits seen countless times on here before. I don't have the cash to shop for new stuff in order to keep creating new and fresh content and to be honest if I did, I don't think I'd want to. It would become a little glutenous and wasteful and just yeah. Old demons are coming back in regards to my body, making me want to just cover up as I've started to feel ashamed with what I see. Again, ridiculous but a daily battle I still fight and try my hardest to ignore. This moment in time, it's a little more difficult to ignore.  

So today, after a busy day in York with my mum then my evening pole class I decided to shoot something. I thought I would go back to basics with my outfit, strip it right back down to something I love wearing and forget about the ''will this look good on my blog'' ''is this too boring'' so of course, I brought back out to play my classic tartan baes. If I was ever asked what a key piece of my wardrobe was, something I reached for over and over, these would hands down be top of the list. Yes I know I wear them all the time and yes I know its doesn't really scream new content but whatever, after all this is my alternative style diary that I share online, so it's only right I'm true to myself and document it so - something as of right now I'm 100% doing from now on. Of course, I'll include some more experimental outfits because I love putting them together but this time round, it's going to be with 0 pressure. For now, you have my tartan pants, a Missguided bodysuit I've had hidden in the back of my wardrobe since January and of course, my Vans. 

Tomorrow, I'm going to be getting myself up early for a productive day of blog shoots and YouTube videos to film [3, and I'm so excited to get cracking with them]. I'm ready to get back to it. My mum, very very kindly today has bought me some new bits as a parting gift that I'm can't wait to style up for this bit of the internet. I've already brainstormed the locations, ideas and themes of the shoots, I'm ready to get this creative ball rolling.

  3. I 100% relate with this whole post! I've been having mental blocks a lot lately with blogging, and I definitely spend far too much time worrying about what other people are going to think of my content, rather than worrying what I think.
    I can't wait to see what content you share over the next while! And I love this outfit, you really pull off tartan.
