4 Year Blogiversary

Y'all. I DID IT. I actually remembered my blogiversary! This hasn't happened since my 1 year blogiversary back in 2012. Why I decided to start my blog on a random April Fool's Day during my sophomore year of college, I'll never know. But it's been a fun journey, and I'm excited to see what's next in store for this space of mine. For this post I decided to list 10 random things you may not have known about me & this blog:

1. I discovered fashion blogging by Google searching, "what to wear with combat boots" ha!
2. The blogs that inspired me to start my own were Selective Potential and Kendi Everyday.
3. In my first outfit post ever I wore a belt around my head.
4. My ex-boyfriend and I split the cost to buy our first DSLR camera (T2i); he didn't know what I was intending it for at first. Then he became my personal photographer, haha.
5. I named my blog the first cutesy thing that popped into my mind right before creating it ("Daydream Frenzy"), and then a few months later I didn't like it anymore.
6. For the first year, I never told anyone I knew that I had a blog.
7. In 2013 my motivation for blogging was at an all time low, & I ended up taking an unintended 4 month break when I started dating someone new & didn't really care about anything else.
8. I've thought about quitting this blog twice.
9. This is my least favorite outfit post of all time. My top favorite changes occasionally, but my most liked/pinned outfit is this one.
10. My blog doesn't have the audience that it used to back when I first started, but I genuinely love reading the comments of those who do stop by & checking out their blogs in return. :)

Here's to another year! *insert confetti emojis here*

I honestly cannot recall most of this month since the whole time I was counting down the days that I would be moving into my new apartment. I know I went to a crawfish boil for a friend's birthday, did some SXSW stuff, got a temporary emoji tattoo with my bff (hers is way better, lol), and spent a lot of time packing. This past Saturday I moved out of my old place and into my new one, and I LOVE it. It has been so much fun getting to decorate my own space and not having to worry about anyone else's mess. Hopefully when I get everything set up I can share some photos with y'all! Yay for a fresh start!

Spring Transitions

I don't want to jinx it, but I think the cold weather has finally left us for good (sorry northerners, I know y'all are still dealing with winterhell). It can still be a bit chilly in the mornings, but after the sun comes out we've been hitting 80 degrees. I've missed this weather! It's already getting me excited for summer. I know, I know, one season at a time.

The weather isn't the only thing that's been changing around here; I feel like there have been a lot of transitions happening in my life over the past month. New hair style, new job, and now this weekend I'll be moving into my new apartment & living on my own. I've never lived alone in my life, but I'm not scared. If I'm being honest with myself, I actually require a lot of alone time. I used to think that was a weird or antisocial quality to have, but now I realize that it's pretty common. I have nothing against living with roommates, especially since most of my experiences have been pleasant, but I think it's time I finally try something different. I have read countless articles saying that everyone should live alone at least once in their life, so I'm making it happen. Sometimes change is good. :)

Outfit details:
F21 polka dot sweater (similar)
Target striped skirt (old, I like this one though)
Target heels (thrifted)
hand-me-down bag
Target tights

Remix Roundup | J.Crew Gingham Shirt

Everything I own from J.Crew has been thrifted, which is only like, three things. It's just really hard for me to justify spending money there. I mean, $40 for a simle grey tee? I can't. My wallet won't let me. Thankfully there are thrift stores with plenty of J.Crew clothing for poor girls like me - which brings me to this awesome gingham number. It's probably the most remixed top in my closet during the autumn/winter months! I have 2 other gingham shirts in navy and tan, but this black one just tends to be more versatile. So yeah, I'm a fan! Which look is your favorite?

Spring is always, always the season where my motivation for blogging starts to falter, so I have little to offer when it comes to good content during these months. Spring of 2014 I posted maybe 2 or 3 outfits, while in 2013 I posted just one outfit. Embarrassing, right? I almost quit blogging that year. So, the last time I consistently had outfits to share for spring was in 2012, and those posts physically make me cringe. Seriously, don't go back there. Let's all just pretend my blog started after that year, haha. For 2015, I'm going to do my best to step my game up! We'll see how it plays out...
