NEW BLOG POST // An Open Letter to the Girls With Floppy Hats & Flowing Dresses Who Travel
How dare you.
How dare you bother to be concerned with your looks and your photos while you’re traveling.
You’re not a real traveler. You should be in leggings or jeans, roughed up from your arduous trekking throughout the city, only able to truly experience another culture when you drop every effort to look decent while in public.
Get off your high horse and stop posting pretty pictures of yourself on your travels because it invalidates your ability to be a travel blogger or give any information of value to your audience other than outfit details. 🙄🙄🙄 See how ridiculous that sounds?
I guess the latest phenomenon to sweep the female travel space is the seemingly mutually exclusive idea that travel bloggers cannot also be fashionable people.
If you want to be taken more seriously as a travel blogger, just dress uglier… apparently.
Don’t take pictures with yourself in it.
Never show your face unless you want to own up to being the narcissistic heathen you are.
No, no, no. There isn’t just one way to be a female travel blogger or influencer. So the idea that this faux hierarchy exists based on the notion that the more photogenic you are, the less credible your work, is absurd.
If you’re an aspiring blogger or person of influence, I hope you continue down the path you feel most comfortable walking.
Floppy-hatted fabulosity or loose-fitted leggings, I encourage female travelers to continue wearing what they feel the most comfortable and confident in.
Do it for the ‘gram, or don’t. Life, somehow, will still go on 🙂
Please tap on the photo and go check out some of the traveling babes who are not only killing the game, but looking damn good doing it.
I have so many style icons, I wish I could tag them all. Stay fab, ladies!
