Why Do I Blog?

Why Do I Blog | Lauren Rose Style Blue Gingham Top Zara OOTD
After reading this think piece post by Hannah from Too Much Is Not Enough discussing why she and other bloggers do actually run a blog and share part of their lives via the internet, I thought I would talk about why I personally blog.

It is an interesting concept and some may find people who have blog's vain, but I think that is far from the truth. Blogging is different for everyone, for some people it gives them a voice, somewhere they can share their thoughts and feelings on anything from their favourite concealer, to Zara's hottest buy's, as well as people who discuss more serious topics and issues, such as feminism or mental health. It gives people the ability to talk freely about whatever they wish to in the hope that it might inspire, help or even just interest someone else to have a read.

For me it is my creative outlet.  I have always been a creative person, ever since I can remember. My favourite subjects in school were always art and graphic design and I thought that I wanted to work in costume or fashion design when I first left high school. I went to art college for a year before deciding that actually studying art wasn't for me, there was way too much painting involved and I just don't think I had the patience for it and I actually missed the learning side of education. So I opted for a degree that mixed both by studying Fashion Management. This course allowed me to discover what career I actually wanted to do, mixing management and business modules with creative modules, it was the perfect balance.I now work in Fashion Merchandising, which I absolutely love but it is definitely more analytically based and therefore for me, having this space on the internet to use my creative side is essential to me.

My blog is my hobby. Some people play sports, play a musical instrument, but mine is my blog and I love it. It is something I enjoy to create. I have so much fun taking outfit photo's with my best friend, I love editing the images, to putting the final post all together and clicking publish, as well as coming up with new idea's for post's or putting new outfits together to share. It is something I am extremely passionate about.

I used to use this blog to talk about an array of interests, from beauty to baking but it always came back to fashion. They were the post's I enjoyed creating the most, and luckily they were the one's that were the most popular. Fashion has always been my main interest, so I am so happy with the focus my blog has.

Summer Stripes

Lauren Rose Style Blue Striped New Look Summer Dress OOTD Fashion Blogger London
I am currently obsessing over stripes. Blue stripes in particular. I have been so drawn to the colour blue recently and as it is finally starting to get a little warmer in London, I got the chance to wear this striped dress last weekend for the first time. It has been hiding in my wardrobe for over a month now, awaiting for the day that the sun would come out.

Dress : New Look / Shoes : H&M / Bag: Cath Kidson 

This dress definitely encapsulates effortless style, a throw it on and go kind of look, with the waist tie adding a little structure into the shirt dress. It was the perfect outfit for spending the day relaxing in the park with friends.

My shoes are from H&M and these beauty's are set to be a core staple in my summer wardrobe. I had wanted a pair of mules for a while, and almost bought a pink pair but I ended up choosing the nude pair as I knew I would be able to wear them with way more outfit's. It is an added bonus that they are super comfy.

I teamed this look with a little cross body bag from Cath Kidson, adding a bit of a muted colour clash to this outfit. Also - apologies for the paleness of my skin right now. I am hoping that now the sun has made an appearance, I may see a bit of a tan develop or perhaps I will just need to opt for some new fake tan asap.

SHOP THE LOOK
         

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend! Lauren Rose xx
