Happy 1 year Blogiversary!
Hi all! Today marks one year from the day I started this little blog. That went fast! I can totally remember sitting down and creating it...feeling hesitant at first and then just deciding I would go for it and see what happened. I've had lots of fun with my little blog and have met some really neat people through it this past year. It's been interesting to see my changing looks, hair styles and outfits, for sure. It's made me more aware of how I dress and present myself each day. I would (bravely) say that after a year of blogging all about what's in my closet (and what I've added to my closet--the blog backfired in a way....I definitely have had more fun adding to my closet than not) I have come out of it with a little more sense of style and knowledge of what looks best on me. Don't get me wrong, I don't always get it right, but lets be honest, there's really no "wrong" in fashion as long as you're confident in what you wear (to a point...lol).
In honor of my 1 year Blogiversary I thought I'd do a little giveaway! I am giving away a $25 gift card to my favorite store, Anthropologie!

Now because this is a fashion blog I'll leave you with a little fashion...here's what I wore the past few days:
Tuesday (went shopping with my girlfriend to look for an outfit for a dinner we have to go to on Friday for our husbands' work):
-Matchstick Jeans-J Crew Outlet
-Steve Madden "Cabezza" Sandal-shoes.com
-Bracelet-Stella & Dot
-Striped T-American Eagle (Scored this for under $8!)
-Artist Crop Jeans-American Eagle
-Necklace-J Crew Factory
And an up-close of my summer braid:
I have to share one more thing with you...upon hearing that the Happy Morning Sweater got another price cut (3rd cut) on Tuesday I thought I'd call a few stores to see if I could track one down.
I mulled over getting this sweater several times after it went on sale and in the end told myself I just didn't know how to style it to make myself pass on it. I've since seen it on a few people on blogs and thought it was soooo cute so I figured I might as well see if there were any left floating around. After calling a handful of stores I was finally able to track down what may be the last XS in the country...and it's mine for just $19.95!!! This was a $178 sweater, people! I love a good deal, don't you!
Alrighty..off for another morning of swimming lessons...hope you all enjoy your day!
