The Chair

H&M leather jacket, J Crew striped shirt, Forever 21 skirt, cuff and necklace, Sam Edelman boots
Sometimes I will just be doing things and inspiration for a photo session will come about. There is something about the quiet air, the sound of the washer machine and eating a crisp bowl of cereal that is so peaceful! The top half of this outfit was actually what I wore to work all day and then when I got home I slipped out of them and threw on this tutu that was on the closet floor (I added shoes for the photos, I was barefoot originally). Maybe it is my kitchen, but something about these photos felt a little retro. 

Some of you have asked me about how to create a blog. Truthfully there is no one way. I think the main thing about creating your own fashion blog is to have fun. There are no rules except to have fun and enjoy it. Now, if you want to get more technical I would say that having creative and fun pictures that are large helps. Also, being consistent and having a sense of who you are and no straying from it. People will respect your point of view and those who connect with it will be daily readers! My blog is not even what many would could consider "successful", it has not risen to the top quickly and that is fine by me. I have developed a strong readership that I adore. If it eventually becomes more successful that is awesome, but more importantly it is about expressing my opinions, loves, and inspirations. I hope that you all enjoy it and I plan to keep improving the site each and every day!

Tayler said...

gorgeous, i totally know what you mean about spontaneous photo shoots, if the lighting is really pretty somewhere or i just feel like taking pretty pics, then its the right time, even if i dont have time. haha.

I noticed some changes with the layout of your blog, I really want to customize mine but have no idea how to work html's/ or how to create a website in general. did you do yours yourself? any tips, or just kind of a short explination would help tremendously <3

I'm gonna steal those boots from you and why do you look so damn cute with those bangs! You make me want bangs and I've had them in the past and know it's not a good idea. No No No

the style crusader said...

such sweet photos. totally agree with the retro vibe... i think kitchen appliances and soft colours help with that. you seriously have the cutest skirts! love your blog and would totally consider it a success. xx

Dancing Branflake said...

Great photos! You pull of bangs so well. I love what you said about not gaining huge popularity but I beg to differ. You have over 700 followers! That's pretty awesome in my opinion. And you do have wonderful readers because your blog is so inviting.

Fabulocity in Amish Country said...

These photos are fab! :) I love how even though all of the photos are in the same location... they all have slightly different lighting colors and textures! Photoshop or is that just how they came out? Cuz it's totally cool :)

Sherin said...

Amazing photoshoot. You look so beautiful. I love the tutu!

allthatshewants said...

Lazy Owlet said...

nice outfit and the photos are awesome!

Lainey said...

There is something so romantic about your pictures. Do you use a special filter, or is it your camera, or your house, or the light creeping into your kitchen? Whatever it is, it's beautiful.

legalstyle said...

I love your refreshing and heartfelt thoughts on blogging. It's nice to hear, especially when it seems people get competitive with this - what's with everyone caring more about page views than their own integrity?

NerdGlasses said...
