The Best and Worst Parts of Fashion Blogging

Yesterday marked the four-year anniversary of when I created Graceful Rags. Four years?! Wow, time flies! I started my blog during the summer between my sophomore and junior years of high school, and a few notable things changed as a result: I became a chronic procrastinator with schoolwork (before starting my blog, I was the type of student who studied every night and finished all my projects a week before the due date), my productivity plummeted thanks to starting my blog’s Instagram account, and I suddenly had no free time (hard to determine if this was due to the difficulty of junior year or the added work of my blog—I’m guessing a combination of both).

If you’ve missed me on Instagram and Pinterest, that’s why I’ve been absent! Gotta love that mountain internet connection (i.e. nonexistent).

But today I’m finally back to civilization, and I wanted to round up some of my favorite 4th of July outfits from over the years, as the holiday is quickly approaching. I initially had planned a cute and casual look for this post, but I got so caught up in the relaxation of being in the mountains that I never ended up taking any blog photos! So here we are. I hope you enjoy! Continue reading “4th of July Outfit Inspiration”
