I've hit a bit of a wall this week. Not so much exhaustion or burnout (which I experience from time to time) but more a feeling of being overwhelmed with everything. The blog is coming up to its second birthday, and while I cannot be happier with the rate at which it has grown (largely thanks to all of you for being here), the growth has meant a much bigger workload. Now don't get me wrong - I do thrive on this, but I'm sure as many bloggers will agree, it's a lot to manage for one person. Of course bigger blogs have contributors and content managers etc, but some of us are not yet at that level!
First and foremost I want to focus on the blog and move forward with the enthusiasm and passion that drove me to start in the first place. In order to do this, I've decided to limit the number of styling jobs I take on. I'm loving the PR work that I'm doing and will continue to post everyday here on the blog, give or take the odd day when the wheels fall of completely! I also mentioned last week that I have a couple of exciting projects coming up. One is the blog redesign, but I also want to look at my blog content and create a bit more structure. This includes my blog layouts, starting with my moodboards which I decided could really do with a re-fresh!
Today I've taken inspiration from the Zara Spring/Summer Campaign, which I've been lusting over lately. While the bare midriffs are looking a bit chilly as we move towards winter here in NZ, I love seeing what's in store for us next year, and many of the clothes are trans-seasonal. Overall, there's a gorgeous minimalist vibe that really appeals. I've picked out some of my favourite looks including everyday basics in neutral palettes, and mixed them up with some beautiful images from my Pinterest boards.
See below each moodboard for links to the original sources, as well as the items from Zara.

I've decided to make Musings + Moodboards a regular occasional post. So far they've been sporadic, but you will be seeing more from now on. I'd love to hear what you think, so do leave a comment and let me know.
Have a fun, inspiring and restful weekend. x
