Please tell me I’m not the only one that feels in a bit of a funk.
Normally I have no lack of inspiration. In fact, the problem I face is that I’m inspired by too much. There is beauty everywhere – even in the most unlikely of places. Online there is inspiration catapulting around at a million miles a second. I think what I’m suffering from is over saturation.
Lately I don’t want to be online. I’m sort of disenchanted with looking at blogs and scrolling through Pinterest. I want to sit outside with a beautiful magazine and flick through the pages with my fingers. I want to sit with people in real life and talk to them in person rather than on Twitter. I want to bake cookies. I want to be in the sun. I don’t want to click and I don’t want to re-pin. I don’t want to sit in front of a computer screen. I want to devour a magazine, rip out the pages and tape them into a notebook. So that’s what I’ve been doing…
This nostalgia is spreading like wildfire into all aspects of my life. I suddenly want to get a sewing machine so that I can make Jil Sander inspired clutch bags. I also want to get my hands on some old school looking running shoes. This pair by Converse are mega adorable. Anything with a late ’80s/early ’90s vibe is working for me right now… bring on the Spice Girls and resurrect the pog.
