That’s one of the great things about blogging and being active on Instagram, involving the inspiring outfits of influencers. And to change those into your own style. I am in the blessed phase of my blogging life that I can surround myself online with all very supportive like-minded women. I’ve been blogging for seven years now and I’ve never cared about numbers and popularity. Although of course I would love to have hundreds of thousands of followers. And would be super popular and would have to cancel the collaborations because there are to many of them.
Inspired by influencers.
But do I really want that? I have occasional collaborations, only barter deals, I don’t want to monetize my blog. And I am very happy with that. Am I ?( I also am called caterpillar never enough…..) But actually I’m most happy with the fun virtual friendships I have. How great is that. And those are the women that influence and inspire me. When I saw Judi and Murag in this awesome dress on Instagram I knew I wanted that dress.
And Judi had placed a link in her stories, and the dress was also discounted! Well, I couldn’t miss that. I asked Judi how the sizing was, because I never order anything from River Island and she gave me good advice because this dress fits me perfectly! And I wear this dress completely different from the other two amazing ladies, so I’m definitely inspired by influencers but give it my own twist.
Get inspired by other women, but stay true to yourself!
Because I think it’s important that you stay true to yourself. You can wear everything the same as the one who inspired you, but you are not yourself and certainly not unique when you do so. Well I don’t think I’m unique, I mean I buy a lot from Zara, I rest my case. But put your own spin on your outfits! And that’s what the influencers who inspire me do. All women with their own style!
I am wearing a pre loved military style short jacket on this dress. But I think I will wear it a lot with a denim jacket or leather jacket too. Shoes are a bit difficult I think. Not every boots or shoe will look good under this dress. It needs to be a bit neutral I think, or it has to show some skin like sandals. Flashy shoes will be to much, all the attention needs to go to the dress.
I am wearing a glass green necklace that fits perfect to the dress but the ring and bracelet I will skip the next time. It’s to much. The oversized sunnies are green and from Asos.
Are you inspired by influencers?
