Lets Get Real
Monday, September 17, 2012 45 Comments Images

So I know this isn't a usual thing for me to just sit and blab on and talk about my feeling but I just felt like I had to today.  I am going to be honest with all of you right now and tell you that I often ask myself what I am doing with the whole blog thing.  Why would I continue to do this if it ever stresses me out or gives me anxiety??? Well the answer is......I do it because I sincerely love fashion and inspiring others and let's be honest I like showing my two cute boys off!!  Fashion inspires me in so many different ways and helps me express myself everyday, what I wear is how I'm feeling!  Fashion may seem silly to others, but to me it means so much more than putting something on each day.

I know that there are so many people that just don't understand and probably never will, but that's ok.  If you don't follow other fashion blogs, or lifestyle blogs or whatever else you can think of you're probably like what the crap is she doing, and I understand that.  I don't do it because I think I'm super cool, or because it makes me a little extra money (even though that doesn't hurt when you have a shopping addiction), or because I get cool little goodies in the mail (which what girl wouldn't love).  I do it because I am passionate about it and I think everyone needs something to be passionate about.  It means something to me and it gives me something that I have just for myself again.  

I know I may come across super confident and never let anything bother me but that's not true, I'm human too, I have feelings too. But for every sweet, loving, comment or email or girls coming up to me telling me they follow CaraLoren' that I get, it reminds me why I do this and I why I love it so much.  I figure hey if I have some haters, I have made it haha and I can take haters all day when I get those sweet little emails that tell me that I have inspired someone to do what they love or care more about themselves.
To pretty much sum this whole blabbering up, I love being passionate about this silly little blog and I'm proud of it! But most of all I thank every last one of you for the sweet comments and love, you keep me going!!

xoxo

  3. I think I am one of your newest followers and I love this blog! I just started one awhile ago myself and I totally understand your thought process. It's so easy to compare yourself to others and feel small or focus on the negative comments. But you are right, if you are doing your blog because of passion and fun and something for yourself then write on. There are so many people who enjoy reading what you have to say. Continue to have fun for you!

    You are setting a positive example for young girls and women, there aren't many of those around so you should feel darn good about yourself and what youre doing! The haters are jealous of your success. Keep up the positivity! And don't quit posting, I need your outfit ideas to get ready in the morning ;)

  8. I really appreciate your blog. Finding cute clothes that are modest. I know it takes a lot of time out of your day to do this blog. And you are simply adorable. I hope there aren't negative comments that enticed this rant. :(

  12. YOUR blog is my 'most favorite-est' of all the blogs I follow! I have bought several things I have seen here (like the F21 No Drugs Tee and a half-dozen bubble necklaces!!), and have many of your staples on my wishlist (SM combat boots, wedge sneaks, etc:). My ongoing top-knot frustration? Your fault! My Very Jane obsession? Yep, also your fault! The bottom line is, you should be proud of this blog and yourself. Your personality shines through, not just with the outfits and accessories, but with your words! As long as you keep writing, I will keep reading. XOXO!!

  18. Oh my goodness, girl! I wrote about the SAME thing on my blog today. Is it in the air?! Or do great minds just think alike?!

    Nevertheless, I'm feelin' ya and props to you for keepin' it real. Keepin' it humble. Because that's the way to truly touch people. I love your outfits, but even more, I love that underneath you are a real girl living a real life and we can all relate to that!

  19. You are so sweet I can't believe that anyone would have something mean to say! I absolutely love your blog, I'm not that into fashion but you have a way with words and your sincerity shines through. You are one of those people I think that if we ever met we would be good friends. Keep up the good work, you are really good at what you do.

  21. You should be passionate about this blog. I think you are doing great and not to mention those cute necklaces! I have been wanting to move away from my healthcare job to something more in the fashion industry because i love it so much. So besides my blog, I just became a stylist for Stella & Dot. I couldn't be more happy. It's a little time consuming trying to get my little business off the ground but it's so worth it and so fun. Keep up the good work!
