It may come as no surprise to you, considering my lack of posts, that I am lacking a bit of influence and passion. Passion for those things that I used to be totally amped on, like fashion and blogging. But in light of trying to dedicate this year to making things in my life better, I decided to stop that quickly, and turn my rut around.
Welcome March: month of sensory overload and forced inspiration. This month I have been striving to bring my creative side out of hibernation by making myself do something different involving culture or art every week, and I think its finally working. Over the past couple weekends I attended the Cleveland Art Museum, a friend's art show, a few local shows and tonight my roommate and I really pushed the creativity envelope for ourselves, and made a bookshelf into a bar! (thanks to pintrest, of course!) My friends and I will also be having another clothing swap this month, So if that doesn't get the creative juices flowing, I don't know what will.
Outfit post is in a way pushing myself creatively, as well. Not saying that it was hard for me to assemble a blouse and skirt together, more like…bright colored florals are a little intense for me. But I was drawn to this top’s brightness, I feel like it’s not your average floral, It’s like floral on acid, and I like it. Pushing myself out of this rut has been difficult, but I was the only thing holding myself back from feeling creative again. So I got up, got over it, and forced myself to go out and see and do until I finally felt it again.
So if you are experiencing a bit of a rut, and it’s winter so I believe I’m probably not the only one, Get up! Get out! and force yourself out of it! you are the only one who can really put an end to it and make yourself better. It was a lot easier than I thought, and besides, of course things are only going to get better, spring is right around the corner!
