Guys, it’s official. I know I have been a fashion blogger for a few months now, but it wasn’t until this moment that it became real. Because today, I wore a hat. And not just for a photo shoot, but in real-freakin’-life. Like for eight straight hours I wore this hat. And I loved every second of it. If that does not a true fashion blogger make, then I don’t know what will.
In all seriousness (well…not ALL, I am not capable of ALL seriousness), one of the amazing things about doing this blog is it inspires me to step outside of my clothing comfort zone and try styles that I never would have thought I could pull off. It also offers up the challenge of taking items that are super trendy (sometimes to a fault – I’m talking to you culottes!) and finding ways to incorporate them into my everyday wardrobe and make them “me”. Just six months ago, the idea of wearing a hat would have made me feel like a little kid playing dress up, now I can’t stop coming up with cute ways to style it! So thank you Jess and Emily, and thank YOU kind reader, for giving me the opportunity to try new super-fun fashion trends and the support of not laughing to my face when I do (laughing behind my back is acceptable, but only when I try to pronounce thesaurus and say it “the-thaur-rus” like Winthrop from “The Music Man”. All other behind my back laughing is prohibited).
