Happy 2nd Birthday, Blog!


Tomorrow is Sterling Style's 2nd birthday! I can't believe how fast these two years zipped by. It's been an amazing journey. Two years ago I tired of filling up countless binders with inspiring images and tidbits and wanted a new outlet. I'd never considered starting a blog until I Googled the Miss Dior Cherie campaign and landed on Poetic and Chic's blog. It opened my eyes to a whole new world. I wouldn't have experienced such amazing things without your support. You make me want to be a better blogger and a better person. Thank you.

Check out a few memorable posts below (click on the image for the post).

Congrats! I have been following for a while now, and it is so fun to see how far you have come. I remember a post a while back that I reposted of you wearing red tights with a black outfit. That pretty much sold me on this blog. Oh and one of my favorite memories was when I won those James Jeans. I think that should be included above. Haha :)

Taylor said...

Thanks ladies! I'm honored to be a daily read for some of you. Thanks to those of you who have been long time supporters! You really have seen the blog grow.

I guess I don't call it an anniversary b/c that is more like my blog and I have been together for 2 years. I think of it more as my baby that was born and maturing. Sounds weird, but true. Whatever it is I'm happy to have it and your support! :)

Ambyr said...

Congrats on the 2 year accomplishment. I love reading your blog.
Also, your "in love with my cottage" dress is sooo cute!

Found your blog via Kendi Everyday. Saw your first photo, and it reminded me so much of West Cliff that I had to keep scrolling to see if you were anywhere near Santa Cruz. Then I found this photo of Capitola and was ecstatic! I grew up in Santa Cruz and love, love, LOVE it. We were just there for 12 days (with road trips to Tahoe, Pismo, and San Fran).

Added you to my reader and am ooking forward to following your blog and seeing more glimpses of my hometown!
