Well, I've written two long posts and chose not to share either of them.  Sometimes I feel at a crossroads between having a personal style blog but wanting to talk about other things such as happiness and our inner workings.  I would be very interested in hearing what you would like me to write or post about.  Leave a comment below or a question you may have for me!  Feel free to email me as well!  Thanks and Happy Tuesday!

First of all- you are gorgeous and that outfit ROCKS my socks off, white is soo hot looking. I'd love to read what you think, feel, express etc.

Why not have both? :) I love following blogs that have great photos and outfits, but to be honest, what I LOVE even more is getting to know the author. You should TOTALLY be vulnerable on your blog and allow your readers to read about it. I think that's why MOST of us come back...because it's a way to connect and relate on a deeper level. You can incorporate it into your outfit posts and it will all work out great :) Trust me, I tune in because you are stunning but also because I want to know about your day and the little happenings in your life. That's my 2 cents...keep the change :)

I'm with @BlueVanilla and @Linh... write what you want! it is YOUR blog afterall! if people aren't interested, there are a hundred thousand other blogs they can read. if they are interested, then hooray! either way, do what you feel is best for YOU!

Sara B said...

I've been feeling the same way lately. Sometimes I feel like I want my blog to fit perfectly into a certain category or theme, but then I remember it's my blog and I can do whatever I want. I love looking at fashion and fun glittery things, but I think we are all way deeper than that and sometimes can benefit from hearing other people's struggles, joys, and encouragements! Do whatever's in your heart! xoxo

Ash said...

you should write about whatever you want girl! It's your space and I say, why bother trying to fit into the "only fashion pictures blog" box...I'll keep reading, no matter your choice! Love the bag- I've been eyeing it for awhile now, and I think this post confirmed that yes, I do indeed need this purse..

Becky said...

Bring on the other stuff! After all, your blog name isn't "Running on Style" but rather Happiness so bring on some posts about happiness. Why not?

Sist and Sist said...

I love the outfit shots but you could definitely put more personal stuff in there. Like - how tall are you? I've always wondered :) Hubby pics are good too! Your house, pets, etc...

JLN said...

I absolutely love your blog and would love to know more about YOU! I think that combining topics is a great way to let us see your beautiful style and know a little about you :) Whatever you want to write about, write about! Everyone loves fashion, but we all have personal issues that we write about - sometimes they can be a beautiful combination.

Bailey Schneider said...

Your blog is exactly that... YOUR blog! You should feel free to express who you are. If you feel like keeping it strictly fashion then express yourself that way.
If you feel like being personal etc then do so :-)
This is your happy space to do as you please. Be creative. Just Be :-)

Much love, Bailey from Vanilla Blonde

Laura Burtis said...

DITTO to everything JLN said! I adore you, and love your blog - and I think it would be a lot of fun to get to know you better... But it's whatever you are comfortable with!
P.s. LOVE this outfit! So dang cute!

Virginie's Cinema said...

I think blogging is all about inspiration and I would love to read your posts about happiness and inner workings. I think as long as it comes from the heart of you people will feel it.

I totally understand your dilemma though, I'm having a similar questioning with the content of my blog :)

Hope you have a great day!

ps: you look amazing in white and aren't these H&M sandals just the most comfortable ever?

Elle said...

You could totally do both! Love this outfit.

Eclectic Flair said...

Lovely as always!

You should write whatever you're inspired to write! It's your blog and you should express yourself in whichever way makes you happy!

Martina Lynne :: The Life Academic said...

You know, I feel the same inner debate all the time when I'm writing about my life in my blog. I just wrote a really long post about some of the struggles I had teaching this term (I'm a literature PhD student and instructor) and then realized, right before I hit publish, that I was dancing awfully close to the line both on my own personal sharing limits and on federal laws that restrict what I can and cannot say about my students. It's hard to juggle those things and I think you have every right to compartmentalize what you share, with whom, and were. I know your readers would be happy to see whatever you brought us, but you keep doing whatever feels best and most honest to what you need. :)

Gabby / Gypsy*Diaries said...

Write about what you want to write about! Stay true to yourself and dont feel pressured to write about something that you feel others want you to write about! Sure everyone loves outfit posts but it's what makes your blog unique that will make them come back! Post those posts :) I'd love to read them!

Melrose said...

write about everything! that's what makes blogging so great!
Some of my favorites to follow are ones that share a little bit of everything, though I'd probably follow you regardless... your photos look like they're straight out of a magazine!

How do you get your hair to look so perfect?

marissa at the boot said...

feel free to share whatever you feel! it is YOUR blog at the end of the day.
i like to find a balance between personal stuff and style that doesn't make it all one thing. but that's just me.
love this look to pieces!

MG said...

I think you should post about what makes you happy! When you enjoy what you're posting about people can feel it in your writing and will enjoy reading it!

CMae said...

I think you should interject here and there with different posts ie on how you think and feel! :)

SIENA.STYLE said...

you look great in white

I love outfit pics but prefer hearing about your life, happiness, inner workings, and other serious and real issues. That's just me, though! I don't really enjoy hearing about the outfit, even though I Like looking at it. I think you're inspirational either way, so keep up the good work. I love reading your blog. : )

Chloe said...

Love the all white ensemble, that top is so pretty.

Natalya's Closet said...

Such a pretty all white look!! XOXO, www.NatalyasCloset.com

Faith said...

you are just so stunning! can't get over it ... i had to let hubby see too, haha.

i seriously would be interested in anything you write about ... i think you should talk about anything your heart desires ... we follow you because we're interested! :)

Katie said...

Yeah, I think that you should do both! Why not?!? Love the outfit by the way.

Teresa: Life and Style said...

I love the all white! Reminds me of my new thrifted white jeans that I need to hem - slacker! Thats me...

I say, write about it all! I started my blog as outfits only, then my life started trickling in... its not too bad, and I feel like I always have advice or an opinion to draw from if I have questions or doubts about anything from "which belt?" to "where is my life going?"

Its always nice to have support :)

Shelby said...

I would totally love to hear more about you! Your style is so unique I am sure all your readers would agree it probably comes from an equally awesome person!

I have a lot of nicknames, my favorite is Megs. said...

I think you should do both! You are one of the style bloggers I actually READ. Sometimes with style bloggers, I just look at the pictures.

Lindsay said...

I think you should write about anything your heart chooses. Yes your blog is a style blog, but you are human and we all have issues we just want to let out...whether happy or sad. Share whatever is on your mind, no matter the topics. We all love your blog. Style or personal :)

tickled. said...

Oh, I DEFINITELY think you should write what you're feeling! Sometimes blogs are allowed to 'stray' from their original purpose! Isn't that the point? A place that we can get all creative, gushy, and SUUUrious if we need?! :)
xoxo::Lauren @ tickled.

jillian :: cornflake dreams. said...

love the white on white! and girl whatever you feel comfortable posting about im sure we'd all love to hear :) xo jillian

Alisha said...

Matters of the heart.

Sweetie, you are a lifestyle blogger, not just a mere fashion blogger. Incorporate it ALL!! :)

Anna Elder said...

i'm new to the blog, and i'm loving what i'm reading and seeing. gorgeous style. however, i don't think that any blog should stick to its theme. especially when real life is happening. i've found that being real on my blog brings out the best in people. i'm always amazed by the comments that people leave (in a totally good way) and am in awe of how people seem to know exactly what to say. :)

Nicole Marie said...

def share!

Katie said...

I'm sure everyone feels the same when I say we LOVE seeing you & your gorgeous style but it's your blog and readers love to read about your everyday life too! We all share in the ups and downs in life :) xoxo hope you are oK!

Share! I agree with all the other ladies! Tell us what is going on in your world and share your gorgeous outfits! That sounds like a win win for everyone!

christine donee said...

it's never bad to share your thoughts.. I for one would love to hear them!

Clio said...

i think everybody wants to read those thoughts, i know i do. so don't hold back!

Its all Greek to me said...

Would like you to blog about other stuff happening in your life. Just wear nice outfits while you do it, so we can have 2 in 1 :)

Neris said...

You can have both: personal style+personal thoughts blog (like two in one) :) I would love to know more about you; you seem like such an amazing person inside and out! Write about whatever makes you happy and we will read! Promise! :)

I love her outfit ;)

Erin said...

One of the main reasons I follow your blog is that you always have very interesting and thought provoking things to say about life and happiness. So, I say if that's what you want to do, go for it!

Both it up my dear! Outfits plus musings are a double whammy in my book.

Sarah said...

Katie your thoughts on happiness are my favorite! I love seeing your style but the inner-Katie is what makes this blog intriguing. I hope you keep it up. :)

Michelle Xo said...

Maybe think about starting a second, more private/personal blog? I started off with my beauty/budget blog &YouTube channel and wanted a little something on the side to keep as my personal blog.. I ended up completely abandoning my beauty blog for my personal one and loving every second of it.

the classy turtle ♥ said...

I think your blog is perfect how it is. I like a balance of your life and pursuit of happiness with your personal style. I would love to know your gym routine??!?!?!

Nichole&Evans said...

those jeans are marvelous! At first I thought they were EXPRESS because I have a dark wash that feel the same way and they are amazing! I love your blog, makes me look at the better things in life. thanks! :)

April said...

Do both! Love seeing your outfit post but i'd love to hear what you have to say as well! The more personal the blog is the better :)

Katrina (Betty Ray) said...

OMG, don't you love the Lovestory jeans!!?? My favs. And you look just delicious in that entire outfit. I'm loving the lace top.

I think you should write about whatever you want. Who says a "fashion" blog must be a "fashion" blog all the time? It's your blog - do what you like. We will always read. Well I do - don't comment much, but I'm here reading. :)

Danielle @ Antiquated Treasures said...

I just came across your blog via Lynzy's and I'm really enjoying it!! You are gorgeous and have wonderful style!!!

As for what to post about, I think that, if you so desire, you should definitely post things other than fashion. A "Style Blog" surely can encompass what you're wearing and trends that you like, etc, etc, but style absolutely transcends mere fashion. I like to classify my blog as a lifeSTYLE blog, and while fashion is part of that, it surely isn't everything.

Hope this insight helps, again I love your blog and I'm a new subscriber!!

Laura said...

What a gorgeous outfit! I especially love your top. I have always struggled with that, too. Wanting to share my style sense, but also talk about "real life." I tend to use pictures of my outfits as a way to break up the text of my post, which is typically on any old random subject that popped in my head that day and I wanted to share.

Marie-Eve said...

Love that outfit ! Just perfect ! As for the posts, as long as it's honest and real (and I,m shure it will be) I'm in !

Natbeesfashion said...

What I like most in your blog is the lovely outfits that you share with us..
You give me ideas and you have great imagination and taste..!
I am following you, return love back?

Danielle Celeste Couture said...

I love the outfit. White lace and leather accessories. So right. I heard about a book you might be interested in knowing about: Tactical Transparency. I understand how you feel. I have all this goo gushing out and I edit and censor myself questioning what to reveal. Learning more, getting good advice like from a book helps. Katie, you engage people in real ways that are heartfelt and beautiful.Just know that please.(sorry if this is an email)
