One of the things I love about fashion blogging is showing different ways to wear a piece of clothing. I do this here on the blog ALL the time. But I can’t really have 4 different outfits a month that are the same – it’s boring. But it’s also real life. Unless I’m doing a capsule wardrobe – you guys, my readers – except things to be changed up for each post. This blog only gets 7-8 of my monthly outfits . . . that’s at least 20 more days that I get dressed a month. Outfits are repeated and my favorite pieces are re-worn often.
One of the keys to fashion blogging is organization. As long as I’m organized, there are a variety of outfits, and I can make sure my favorite pieces get featured in different ways. One of the ways I stay organized is by shooting several outfits on the same day. By that I mean 2 or 3 – usually featuring 3 or 4 of the pieces. Then I schedule them throughout the month.
One day back in June, my friend Nina and I shot 5 different outfits – and around 10 different posts through those outfits. It was glorious when it came to the blog organization, and getting things done. But it was exhausting. We tried to do it again a few days later, and just did not have the energy. But once a month or so I always get a yearning to do it again. Here’s some tips if you ever wanna have a busy blogging day . . .
1.Pick out the spots you want to take the pictures beforehand. This helps a couple different ways . . . you can come up with a plan of where to go and when, where to change, and you can figure out if you’re allowed on the property. It sounds weird, but something I’ve run into before.
2. Pick 3 or 4 items you want to feature for the month and come up with two different ways to wear them. keep everything in separate bags so it doesn’t get mixed up.
3. Once your outfits are planned pick your accessories and lip colors. and put them safely in your purse – separated into individual baggies of course!
4. keep your makeup simple, but glam. So that way a lip color can drastically change it to whatever you need for each outfit.
5. don’t stress too much! it’s gonna be fun, and it’s all gonna be ok.
HAve you ever done tons of blog posts in one day? How do you keep organized?
