Hope y’all had a great Thanksgiving. We sure did! We packed up the car and headed to my in-laws for lots of turkey and some family togetherness. We ate too much, watched our Clemson Tigers win and did some shopping. The monkeys and I went see the movie Coco and had a great visit with some sweet friends that I don’t get to see nearly enough. All in all, a great holiday.
Today, of course, was back to reality where I was asked the question, “Why do you keep posting clothes? What is this that you’re doing?” Not the first time I’ve been asked “Whats up with this blog thing?” Ummm…I honestly don’t know. This is something that kept me from starting a blog for a while. The fact that I knew people would wonder, “What is she doing?”, “Who cares what she’s wearing?”, or even worse “Who does she think she is?” The fact is I don’t know what I’m doing. I know a few people read my ramblings and I appreciate that so much! I know NOTHING about being a “blogger”. My blog has no identity. I called it a “lifestyle” blog, partly because it sounded good and partly because I felt like I could write about whatever I wanted. Here’s what I do know. I read blogs. I love reading blogs. There are some really awesome, smart, funny and creative ladies out there. Some are fashion bloggers, some are home decor/organization bloggers, some are Christian bloggers and some are lifestyle bloggers. They inspire me to put together cuter outfits, try new hair styles, decorate my house, and be a better Christian. They inspire me and I think women encouraging and inspiring other women is awesome! I hate to see women tearing each other down. Take inspiration from others and work on being the best you that you can be. I write this blog because it’s an outlet for me creatively. I love clothes, decorating, taking pictures and seemingly writing. (That’s new to me.) But if I have to answer the question of “What exactly are you doing?” I guess I’d have to answer with, hopefully tossing a little inspiration out there for other women.
So, here’s an outfit for you! My sweater is wrinkled, but here’s the deal, this striped dress is at Old Navy and less than $20 right now. It super comfy and versatile. This morning I threw a sweater over it for a different look. You can also try a denim jacket, a vest or long cardigan. PS- I borrowed the sunglasses from a co-worker but wanted to keep them. They were so cute!
