The First Post

I have been obsessed with styling outfits for quite sometime. I was saving outfits on my computer long before Pinterest came around. (You mean there was life before Pinterest?!) But seriously, for years I have been following and pinning and liking other people’s outfits. I have long thought about doing a blog, but how was I going to do that? In case you don’t know me, I am a doubter, a worrier, I don’t leave my comfort zone often. But recently I had gotten bogged down with life and work, a bit discouraged. So, I decided to take a risk and go for it. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, right?

In the last month I have learned this whole blogging gig is a serious commitment. It takes time and thoughtfulness to create a post worth reading. I knew right away I didn’t want to have “just another fashion and lifestyle” blog. I didn’t want to publish mediocre, lame posts. And I will be the first one to say my pictures may not be perfect, my hair isn’t always curled, I may not always put together an awe inspiring outfit. But I will also say that I am putting 110% into this. This is a dream of mine and I’m going after it.

Ultimately I want you to find inspiration from my posts. I want you all to leave my blog feeling better about yourselves because if I can do it, you can do it. If you have something your passionate about and you want to pursue it, do it! And hopefully with my posts, you can do it in style :).

Thank you all for reading. This is seriously making my life right now.

    I’m so proud of you, and I’m inspired already… Especially now that I’m back to wearing civilian clothes and not a uniform daily.
