    Seven Years | Outfit

    Today is my 7-year blog anniversary! When I started this blog, I had no idea what it would turn into. I was 20, we had just moved to a new state, and I was looking for some sort of outlet to record my thoughts and all of the weird things I liked. (Hello, icanhazcheezburger — does anyone still read that site? It has gone downhill, sadly.) I was only a baby in terms of what I liked about fashion; I only started dressing up more to go out because people didn’t know me and I felt a bit freer in terms of style.

    Shady Business

    Do you ever have those days where you pretty much try on everything in your closet (and on your floor) before settling on a certain outfit, only to hate the way it was styled and redo everything again? I’m sure you do. (If you don’t, don’t tell me. I don’t want to feel alone.) Today was one of those days for me. I tried shorts with an oversized pink-and-white striped blouse, I tried that same blouse tied fifties-style with a skirt; I had my hair back in a severe bun, then softened with my bangs down; I had this dress with heels and a black belt and silver jewelry… and…
