I’m a fashion blogger. I have been a fashion blogger for six years. I plan on continuing to be a fashion blogger, but before I do.. I wanted to let you in on my thoughts and feelings about the future.
Over the last six years I have developed the brand of B. Jones Style, and it has been exciting to be on this ride from a little hobby blogger to full-time blogger. As each year passed, new opportunities began to come my way, blogging changed and social media became a heavy hitter in the fashion industry. I’ve really loved my experiences, but something started to bug me over the last few years. I would be approached by girls with comments like, “I wish I had your life”.. or “your life is so fabulous”… and I always felt like maybe I was putting out a “perfect” picture that wasn’t actually “perfect”. I started to feel I had to be the person in the “perfect” picture and compete to stay part of the “perfect” world. It was exhausting and not genuinely me.
Then something wonderful happened… I got smacked in the face with pregnancy. My body changed, I lost a lot of my gumption and the opportunities went out the door. Wonderful? You ask.. yes! Suddenly I was free of that “perfect” picture.. I couldn’t even try to look or be perfect.. I had to face it and just be me.
Now, starting out in 2013 I feel fresh and new. I want to be a fashion blogger.. but a much more honest one. One that shows the imperfections and the REAL everyday life. I’ll still be blogging about what I wear, where I go, how I decorate my home, and everything in between.. but I hope you will see truth coming through. If you continue to be part of the B. Jones Style community, I hope you might be inspired, but inspired to be you.. be the life that you have.. and not think anything about mine is perfect. It’s not! I’m just a regular girl, living a very regular life.. I just like adding color to it when I can.
