Come to the Splash Magazine event Tuesday, 4/8! Details here, I'll have some t+j jewels for sale and lots of Chicago designers/boutiques will be there. Shop for a good cause.
These days wearing things on repeat but mixed different ways is happening more often than usual in my closet. Why? Two things - tax season (boy was this a rough one) and transitioning weather. Since I do take pictures of what I wear I feel pressure to have something new on the blog all the time . . .
I often show things on the blog mixed up in different ways. I read many style blogs and I don't know how they have the budget to wear something new 4 times a week. Blogging/styling should be fun, fashionable, but practical. I get asked often whether or not blogging is helpful income and I'm honest about it. My full time job of being owner/designer of t+j Designs is where my income comes from. Blogging is a part of my business in which I show my love of fashion and jewelry, but I certainly don't earn enough from blogging to live life. There are many perks to it, my favorite - the events and spending time with friends I've met through blogging, but in my particular experience blogging does not pay the bills and a Chanel bag :).
If your a blogger, do you feel pressure to wear something new every time you post?
