Style Improvised Pt. 1..

Hello nzuri!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

So last week I decided to take a social media break, and the first day was strangely hard. I’d only started Instagram for more blog exposure in January, yet never realized how addictive it had become. I was checking my status at least 3x a day! Too much, so a break was needed.

Why was this so hard?

I officially started Thursday morning, with just looking and responding to some post, then in the afternoon I told myself not to scroll but just glance at a couple of pictures (not easily done as I kept going until it turned into 30 or 40 minutes, I’d fallen down the rabbit’s hole).

The following day, I again opened the the app early morning, with the intentions of only responding and scrolling for a little; I will say that this time, I stuck to the plan. By Saturday and Sunday I was good, I visited some bloggers on their sites and no Instagram or Pinterest. By Monday it was smooth, now I’m thinking about waiting until the weekend again before rejoining it all.

Why I did this?

Since starting back blogging, I promised myself to do only what feels right, with no pressures and it just felt right to take a break now. I’ve also decided to take many more breaksin the up coming months.

I am in no way knocking social media as it’s good marketing and not to mention, I’ve met some pretty cool individuals on there, yet sometimes the overflow of it all can become a little too much.

Also, I’d spent the weekend with my mothers, a date night with my husband and we had a birthday party for my little one. So, as you can tell, I was quite busy. Therefore, stopping to check my social media platform was placed on back burner.

This post was originally suppose to be about how a simple change in shoes, blouse or even accessories can make a look glammed up or down. But as you can see, it completely took a left turn! I did however include the two looks with versatile features surrounding my camo jogger pants. I’d posted the look on Instagram a while back.

These pants were purchased long ago, I can’t really remember were from, yet they are so comfortable; I find myself reaching for them a lot and not with just black accessories. I’ve done lime, red and yellow; but no pictures. Next time.

I have included another post to hopefully get my original piont across in regards to quick changes to get you from glam to casual or the other way around!

So, tell me what do you think? Simple fixes right…

As always, thanks for stopping by nzuri, until next time; take care and continue to STYLE you!

    Cannot believe what a difference your accessories made on this outfit. It is fun with the tennies. But it is smoldering with those strappy sandals!! Wow!! Love the camo joggers. I have 2 pairs of black but the camo print is much cuter!!

    I noticed you weren’t on Insta but I didn’t take the time to check in to see how you were doing. My apologies friend! It’s good to take a break when needed. I know I do that. Having a blog and then all the accompanying platforms that go along with can be a full time job. I’m glad that you were able to stay focused for your busy weekend, but I am glad you are back! I’m running behind on my blog reading and commenting and I do miss seeing what everyone is up to!!

      Yes, it is a lot!! You don’t really think about it until you stop for a while, also my baby was making comments about me being on the phone ALL the time so yes I will be taking more breaks. I must admit, I did miss what everyone was doing but I found going to your blogs much more interesting. I caught up on your post and others, I like that better. Thanks for checking on me.
