Thank You for Reading!


This site was started two years ago when my work environment changed from going into in a corporate office each day to working from home. It was intended as a way to motivate myself to put on an 'outfit' instead of my pjs/workout clothes each morning. I really only thought that my best friend, sister and mom would ever stop by.

But because of the magic that is the internet the site grew far beyond my immediate circle and I have had the pleasure of crossing paths with so many people I would never have encountered. It has been a fantastic experience to share and discuss and learn through this medium with all of you.  I can't express how much I've appreciated the sweet, thoughtful and helpful comments and emails I've gotten over the past two years.

So as a fun way to start off year three of blogging I wanted to do something to say THANK YOU to all of you lovely people out there who read this blog. I'm going to give away three $100 gift cards to randomly selected people using the rafflecopter form below. Just enter before midnight January 19th and I'll pick three random winners on January 20th.

Thank you again for reading! :)

  101. I tried to comment three times through the Feedly app on the iPad and accidentally closed the page each time. First world problem for sure, but here I am on a lap top where things are done more easily!

    I love your blog so much. I really appreciate that you focus on the clothes and don't add a different necklace to every single outfit and that you don't seem to own 9,000 pairs of shoes, making it difficult to recreate your looks.

    My favorite item that you own is definitely the navy and white skirt! So very cute!

  128. Well since commenting gets a vote I thought I'd post my little story about finding this blog.
    I've actually some what followed it for probably a year or a year in a half but I always lost the link and always spend hours trying to find this blog again. Finally after deciding that I'd like to go on some solo travels I made it a goal to keep track of this blog to help me get organised. (I think Google drive and pintrest are really going to help me keep ontop of that haha)
    So I wanted to say a big thank you for all the hard work that goes into this blog. Its such an encouragement to see what outfits you come up with.
