Remember me? No? I'm that super awesome chick whose blog you used to read :)
I have been out of work for a while and I figured that a blog consisting entirely of me in workout clothing and bathrobes( Which is sadly pretty much all I have worn for the past 4 months) might get a bit old.
BUT...not it is spring!!!! I have new things to share!
I have taken up a new hobby: Nail Art!!! I'm getting good so I thought I'd show you what I've been up to for the past few weeks:
Soooo obsessed. Anyway, It is fun to be back and focused on style again. I haven't stopped reading all of your great blogs!
Happy Monday to you all. I love this dress. It was another sweet vintage find( For anyone who is in Toronto I recommend 'I miss You' if you don't mind paying a bit more for really wonderful pieces) It's so easy and I can remix it with so many different belts/shoes/etc. and get a pretty different outcome. I went pretty subdued today on account of my Jem and the Holograms Mani/Pedi!
Ladies and Gentlemen, I now present to you-THE CUTEST JACKET OF ALL TIME:
I know this blog is just supposed to be about cute clothing but puttng this jacket on this morning reminded me of something fairly important. It reminded me that I am beautiful and unique and that I always have been. Duh.
The thing is, when you read/write fashion and style blogs, you are reminded daily that there is always someone more chic, more rich, happier, thinner, cooler and MORE STYLISH out there than you. Being reminded of this on a daily basis is sometimes hard. I started blogging because I wanted to show women that if they follow their instincts style just happens. Problem is, I think I have been spending too much time coveting other peoples style and STUFF. I will not be able to afford any Miu Miu platforms or Jessica Simpson clogs or Yoji Yamamoto jackets anytime soon. I never used to care about this.
I bought this little jacket at the goodwill for $1.25 a few months ago and once I got it home I resisted wearing it because I thought it wasn't 'fashiony' enough. I threw it on this morning on a whim and I feel GREAT. I feel like ME. I feel retro and girly and fun and STYLISH.
Just like I always have been.
So boys and girls, Today's lesson is be true to YOURSELF and pick and wear clothing that speaks to you. You will always look great.
A note about Tumblr. I LOVE it. It is really quite inspiration from a creative standpoint as well. You should all try it!
