When I started blogging, back in 2016, I was focusing on beauty. While I almost never wear makeup. Ironic, isn’t it? And not so legit. I still don’t know much about beauty. Not a niche for me then. Good thing the blog took a shift towards some more lifestyle content back then. Food, travel, blogging tips. It felt much better.
Yet, it still was not what I wanted.
After some months, the blog started to have more fashion content but still, it was not enough. I made the big jump when I went solo in February. Full on fashion blogger. I have to be honest though. For a very long time, I was kinda making fun of fashion bloggers. Not clever and quite ignorant of me. Like, you know, being dismissive of what you don’t know or don’t understand. I had the same attitude towards Instagram. Who could have guessed I’d be where I am now, right?!
Conclusion? Never dismiss or make fun of. Because you never know.
I was not sure my fashion style – or lack thereof – was worth an entire blog. Like, would I make a good fashion blogger? Also, I always feel a bit awkward when I pose for photos. Posing is not the issue actually. It’s having people watching that makes me uncomfortable. I am still not passed that but I don’t pay attention as much as I used to. Aren’t people used to seeing bloggers taking photos in the street anyway?
But I think focusing on fashion did great for me. It made me create content that is much more personal to me and create a blog that looks much more like me. Focusing on something that I genuinely love allowed me to express myself better, create a space where I can inject my personality. And it is an important aspect of blogging. At least I think.
There is still so much to be done, such a long way to go but I am getting there. I am loving my blog at the moment. Not to brag, but I am quite proud of what I have done since I started blogging on my own. I am embracing being a fashion blogger and expressing the fashion I like and feel good in. Even though I know I could be bolder and sassier, but one step at a time!
I still need to learn how to ace the posing though! And I have got quite few outfits in store for you! Fashion blogging has been fun and I am glad I went into it! Also, I am much happier with the look of my Instagram!
Don’t get too excited though. I am also getting back into baking so you’ll get quite few recipes landing on the blog too!

What about you? How did you choose to focus on something specific? Have you ever felt like you were not good enough for something? Or would not be? That you’d just feel ridiculous? Or make a fool of yourself? How are you embracing your blogging?
Thanks a lot for stopping by. Hope you loved this post!
See you soon,
Love your outfit and purse by the way. I am all over the place with my niche so I have stuck to mostly food, few beauty tips but not too much makeup and lifestyle has always been great.
That is so awesome that you decided to become a fashion blogger. It is really a life changer, and it’s very fun for sure.
Your writing skills are great. Your fashion blog is amazing
I love that purse! I knew that the health and fitness niche would be for me when I started blogging. I loved reading about your journey and transition!
This is such a pretty outfit. I am a huge fan of the purse. I think fashion bloggers are awesome! They introduce me to trends I would never know about.
I love this purse! I’m really excited to see how your blog develops, I absolutely love your style! (Photoshoot next time I see you?!) My blog started out as general lifestyle, then moved into parenting and gradually has become more a mix of books and parenting, and I’m really happy with where it is going. I did a couple of beauty posts and it was definitely not “me”!
Good luck with your shift towards fashion blogging, I hope it becomes a niche you really enjoy and thrive in.
I was recently taking photos (or getting my husband to) for a blog and my neighbour was sunbathing whilst I was standing making all sorts of awkward poses. I try to pretend I know what I’m doing with my fingers crossed people will believe it.

It really hasn’t been that long since I started getting pretty serious. I even ended up deleting an entire blog to restart a new one. I am focusing mainly on lifestyle and creative inspiration for now. I enjoy writing about it and writing for myself. I always do try to find answers to what others seem to be struggling with. I hope to inspire.
I think you are right. Never judge others. You never know indeed. I get so inspired by everyone. and I think your style is colorful and gorgeous corinne ^^
It’s good that you took the leap. I am looking forward seeing more of the fashion blogging you do!
This is really great! I’m glad you’ve found a niche that you enjoy writing about. Love the purse too!
Gonna recommend my girlfriend this blog for sure. She will love it. Thanks 🙂
That is such a cute polka dot dress and looks awesome with the demin jacket. I love your style and you make a brilliant fashion blogger for sure! I don’t think I have enough outfits to be a fashion blogger ha ha ?? but I’ll never say never. I love that blogging is always surprising and you never know what’s around the corner. Looking forward to your recipes too! Keep up the great work girl! ? xx

Thanks so much for your post. Your dress is so pretty! I try to follow fashion bloggers because I don’t really have a “style” other than casual and comfy, and it gives me some good ideas about pairings.
I always love your fashion posts so its exciting that you’re embracing the ‘fashion blogger’ title! This dress is absolutely gorgeous, I’m loving polka dots at the minute, and its such a pretty colour too!- https://sophiehearts.net x
I’m glad you’ve found a topic you want to focus on in your blog! I want to do more fashion and lifestyle posts on my blog when I can, as I love having variety! Xx
I love that you’ve found a niche you really feel is you. I guess I’d call myself a lifestyle blogger because I like writing about all sorts of topics, not that I feel especially expert on any of them, haha. Looking forward to some more fashion posts and recipe posts in due course – and you’re rocking that cute dress! x

It’s so funny where it can take you! When I started I knew I wanted to do skin stuff and food but I never thought food would become my main focus in the way it has. I sit and wonder sometimes if it will stay that way or if I’ll take another turn, And it’s great to admit that you’re proud of yourself. It’s something a lot of us are afraid to do! x
Sounds like you made the right choice embracing the fashion side! I chose travel and lifestyle because I love being out and about everyday so that theme fit well into my day to day life 🙂
I love that bag and those shoes. I am not much on fashion or don’t really pay attention to my clothes – but this was a great read and I enjoyed it. My friend is however big on fashion. I will show her this.
Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them, and style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.
I decided to focus on books because they’re a huge part of my life, but I’m branching out more now.

It was a good decision to become a fashion blogger! Your pictures are lovely 🙂
Oh my, you look gorgeous, girl! I love that Furla cross body bag and that polka dress! <3
All bloggers have stories and mine is not as different as yours. I started as fashion blogger, a really sloppy one at first then it evolved to travel and now I am doing beauty blogs also. I guess it’s good to always reinvent to see how flexible our blogs can be. New outfit bdw!
I chose to focus on what I like to talk about and what excites me. Food and help are my passions
So cute! You are killing it as a fashion blogger! I absolutely love this look especially the dress with the denim jacket! Good luck on everything!
This is so awesome! I’ve always wanted to be a fashion blogger but I’m so bad with fashion and accessorizing! I love your outfit
I like how bloggers shift their focus over time. Haha, I know that feeling of making fun of something and becoming that! (Happens to me a lot). I’m glad you got into fashion because you’ve been rocking your outfits. I like to focus on my life overall on my blog. I mean I’m really bad at makeup and will run out of clothes for fashion posts sooner than later – but I live through other bloggers :).

The wedges are super cute. i love this outfit. so stylish!
I’ve thought about being a fashion blogger, but I don’t think I have the style. Love the dress! You are so stylish.
I think being a fashion blogger really suits you. I have two blogs that have specific themes, but my largest two are lifestyle themed.
That bag is so much fun! Love it.
I think being a fashion blogger is cool. Looks like you’ve made a good decision. Love the denim jacket!
I love all of these pieces and how you put the whole look together. Great job!
I write/blog about traveling with kids. I never feel confident but I push through the negativity in my head and keep going.
I love your outfit, especially the bright red dress and the matched purse. I need some bright dresses for the coming spring and summer weather.
It’s nice to finally find a niche that you enjoy writing and posting about. Blogging takes so much work and effort and it’s nice to find something that will keep you motivated to go on.
Good luck with your goals to becoming a fashion blogger, it’s awesome that you found a passion! I absolutely love the handbag you have here, it is so fun and the perfect size for a day in town!
