I’m not as invested in Instagram as I used to be. If you’ve been following me on Instagram for awhile, you may have noticed that I’ve stopped doing my weekly Tip Tuesdays. I’ve also been pretty inactive on my Instagram Stories and haven’t been posting daily.
There are a few reasons why I’ve lost interest in Instagram: mainly it’s the algorithm that changes once you start to figure it out. My engagement has plateaued, and it’s made me absolutely miserable. Obviously numbers aren’t what Instagram’s all about, but they’re still important, especially if you’re working with brands. Another reason is all the people using inorganic methods to gain followers – buying them, doing follow/unfollow, taking part in loop giveaways, etc. It just feels like Instagram is made up of false numbers.

I’m still going to stay active on Instagram, but I definitely don’t have the same drive I had several months ago. I really do want to gain my motivation back, and I think going to Iceland this month will help – just enjoying time spent with Adam (it’ll be our first trip together!) and shooting photos for the fun of it.
Now onto the outfit! I picked up this super cute off-the-shoulder romper (similar here) from Forever 21 last month. It was the last one (probably from a return, it was sold out before) and I was very happy I managed to get it! It’s the perfect piece for a summer date night. I paired it with my white Chucks to make it more casual for daytime, and wore this beautiful necklace gifted to me by Amazon.
