Hello you lovely bunch, I do hope your week is off to a good start.
I'm currently knee deep in deadlines before a week away in Santorini with George and I honestly cannot quite express just how much this is needed.
I've been blogging now for three years and in that time I've only really had one holiday where I didn't feel like work was overly neccessary. This was at the beginning of my blogging career and when I was in full time university education but still, I shot my outfits every evening and compiled a "week in outfits" style blog post at the end of my trip.
Since then I've blogged, Instagrammed, tweeted and vlogged my way through each trip, and don't get me wrong I've absolutely LOVED every second of sharing my trips with you all, but now, three years in I need a break.
I'm heading to Santorini for a week of relaxation. I'm shutting up shop here on pagesbymegan and on my YouTube channel for just one week. I need to reevaluate my blog and my channels and really work out what it is that makes me and my blog so different, I need some fresh inspiration and creativity pumped into me and I feel a little break is just the ticket to have me at my best once again. I love what I do, completely and utterly so; but it's a full time job to the highest degree, no evenings, no weekends and no holidays and when you're feeling tres uninspired, this does nothing for your creativity, your peace of mind or your stress levels... Until now.
I plan to sit in the sunshine with my gorgeous boyfriend and just enjoy life as and when it happens. No doubt they'll be an Instagram or snapchat along the way but I feel completely and utterly drained right now, I've never really felt like this towards my work and I think it has something to do with the fact that I've very recently (February) turned my hobby into my full time job and like everyone, I need a break.
So with that, I hope you'll be kind and understanding, as I know you always are, and let me have my week in the sun, with my boyfriend to just do me, do us and do a holiday, the way any other normal twenty something would.
Hopefully I'll be back, rejuvenated, revitalised and brimming with ideas for PBM, my YouTube channel and more but please, as always if you have any ideas, criticism good and bad I am all ears.
So with that out of the way I thought what better way to leave you all than with a pretty marvellous outfit, if I do say so myself. The entire get-up is from Zalando, the mecca of all branded websites, albeit a naughty one for my bank balance. Every time I log onto the Zalando website I head straight for Sister Jane; a brand I like to think personifies me and my style and a brand that I know I can always rely on when it comes to that must have sixties inspired ensemble.
This dress is certainly no exception, what with it's beautiful shift shape, it's flowing fabric and it's highly extravagant neck detailing. The lace, combined with the ruffles is something I am totally into right now as my ruffled blouse and shirt collection is increasingly on the up.
Sister Jane combined with the mother of all shoe brands Vagabond, another brand you can get on Zalando, is pretty much a match made in heaven in my eyes; a truly sixties inspired dress with a totally chunky and in-yo-face seventies-esque boot; juxtaposition-ing at it's absolute finest.
So there we have it, one awesome dress, a pair of incredible boots and a Megan who's batteries need recharging. I really hope you enjoyed this post, as always a huge thank you to you all for reading and being so supportive.
Thanks also for letting me have this short break away and I shall see you next week with a whole new head.
