Well, I finally did it! A blog! I’ve asked, requested, and demanded by many to start a blog. My first reaction has always been, hmm no! I love blogs and I love sharing my style with others but I never thought to have one myself. But here am I today... blogging! This is just a peek into my world through what I wear and how I wear it. It’s me dancing around the city discovering and sharing all the things I love in fashion and all things/people creative.
I have so many friends/family I could thank for encouraging me to start a blog but I can’t name them all because that could take forever. But I do have to mention just a few! I am very fortunate to be surrounded by creative people every day, young creative people…almost 10 plus years my junior type of people. I work for a creative university and I am inspired daily. I had 4 students in particular that would continuously tell me I needed to start a blog and of course I wasn’t checking for them! Last month I met with one of my former students (Valheria, my photographer) and she turned the tables on me! I’m usually the one giving out all the good advice but she started schooling me. She said some things that pulled at my heart and by the end of the convo, I was starting a blog!
I wanted to have this up and running by Christmas as a present to myself. I told one of my other former students (Vania, my brand/graphic designer) that I was finally doing this and she immediately stepped in to help me with branding and putting together this beautiful site!
Before I had even thought about starting a blog, my colleague, and now gal pal, Melissa helped me get my insta popping. She is full of creative ideas and she helped me fall in love with utilizing social media. We also have this fun obsession with colorful walls, you’ll see more of that later!
Now let’s talk about this holiday look! Christmas is my favorite time of year! It makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. This is how I plan to style my Christmas day look! Although I will be in the kitchen with my mom all day cooking doesn’t mean I can’t look good doing it!
What are your holiday plans? What will you be wearing?
