To be totally honest, I’ve been in a little bit of a rut the past few days. After working for myself for over two years now, I’ve come to learn that this is just apart of the territory. Throughout my life, since I started blogging in high school, I would spend time creating content when I felt a rush of inspiration. Every so often since going full-time BoC (and I do this to myself), I feel this pressure to create and share something unique, and that pressure stands in the way of my creativity. Which ultimately takes the fun out of it sometimes.

Whenever I’m feeling this way, I try and take a few steps back, clear my mind, take things off my plate and give myself a little break from social media/adding on to my mental to-do list. There are moments when I feel on top of the world, rewarded, and really proud of myself. And then there are moments where I totally question everything. Riding those back and forth waves are the new normal, and it’s just apart of my process now. I guess I just wanted to take a moment to open up and share this with you since it’s not something I talk about often. Just an endless learning experience… blogging in this day and age.

So, beyond my quick diary vent sesh (thank you for listening!), I wanted to show you a few things I’ve purchased as of late or are high on my list. I’ve mentioned a handful on Instagram stories and received a lot of DM’s asking for the link once the story expired, so thought I’d share them and a few extra things here. They’re all easy on your wallet and great transitional items for Fall. As I’ve mentioned, it’s officially summer in SF! The shift to fall won’t come around until mid-October, but I will continue to share good finds from the web until fall outfit posts align with the temp…
