Hello everyone! I’m so excited to share my first outfit post since my rebrand. This one is featuring a nude, blush neutral outfit. I did a major upheaval on my Instagram and other social accounts. I’m trying to fit more into an aesthetic rather than posting a wide variety of colorful, random things. Now every time I post something, I have to ask myself, “is this on brand?” It’s kind of a funny concept to live by because Instagram is supposed to be a quick and effortless thing – hence the “insta” part. In reality, for me and most influencers, posting a single time on Instagram is a 30-minute process.
There is the photo editing, the linking of products, pre-organizing your feed, writing the captions, adjusting hashtags, and so much more. Nothing about Instagram is instant anymore. Since I have been so frustrated with this app lately, I have been focusing on other aspects of Stop, Drop & Vogue. I have rebranded, I’m working on a new logo, and I doubled my website traffic and tripled affiliate clicks.
Although my total social following has grown, I just can’t seem to figure out the ‘gram game anymore. I don’t want to look at Instagram as a thorn in my side, but it really has been. I lose followers on the daily. I don’t know how to grow organically on this app any more. I don’t want to spend nearly $1,000 on giveaways to grow. There must be a way.
This is my plan: I’m going to stop looking at the numbers, stop comparing, and just be myself. In a society where numbers are everything (age, weight, height, test scores, bank account status) now we must add in the stress of how many followers we have on social media. Sounds like an episode of Black Mirror. Anyways. In this new year I want to be more honest and open with you all. Thank you for being my supporters, you give me the strength to pursue this more than you know. Every comment and message makes my heart swell. I can’t wait to show you all what I have in store for you.
It’s Taylor 2.0.

I really like your outfit. I love the colors. I wished that I could pull those tones off, they just make me looked washed out.
RachaelJanuary 24, 2018
The pictures are beautiful! I love how subtly these colors all go together, but it’s still a really colorful look!

Oh my gosh I’m right there with you on that “gram game” Every time I think I have it figured out, something changes.

I sooo love this look. I’ve realized that for me, I like counting dark, jewel tones almost as neutrals, because I wear them so often! I really need to branch out into lighter neutrals like blush/nude.
Britney KaufmanJanuary 24, 2018
What a beautiful outfit! Out of all those, I think I could only rock the purse. Love it, looks great on you!
Jessica JoachimjJanuary 25, 2018
I am loving the colors of this! It looks fabulous on you! Blush is always a favorite of mine when I am getting dressed.
JeanineJanuary 25, 2018
Gorgeous! You look wonderful. I love the colours. All of them are ones I’d wear for sure. I just hope it would all flow as well and look as good on me!
Cindy IngallsJanuary 25, 2018
Not only do I adore this look, but I adore your 2.0 philosophy. As a blogger or influencer, I think it’s much easier to concentrate on being true to yourself and not just creating content for the numbers. Your readers can definitely tell the difference when you are delivering work that connects with them.

Wow that is some amazing outfit! I would never pull anything like this off. I love the colors together!
MeaghanJanuary 26, 2018
Loving this outfit, girl!! Your photographer is absolutely killing these shots of you. You’re preaching to the choir with the Instagram struggle!! It’s so freaking frustrating. We can only just keep doing what we love and not get discouraged!
