Sometimes when I’m shooting photos for my blog, I remember what it was like to be small and play dress-up. I always thought that was something you outgrew, but the older I get the more I realize we still play – we still dress up and put costumes on – but it becomes more purposeful and less playful. We put on ‘proper clothing’ for job interviews – and doesn’t that truly feel like a costume? We put on uniforms for jobs, special clothing for special tasks, and, every once in a while, we get to just play with clothing.
For me, that’s what blogging is. Sure I talk about my life and what is currently happening, but a big part of fashion blogging is playing with clothing. It sounds simple, and that’s because it is, and it should be. Clothing should always be fun, and we should never forget what it’s like to play dress-up.
