I began my blogging journey in March of 2010 at Be Still a Minute, where I have written a little bit about this, that, and any and everything else that has amused me, intrigued me, perplexed me or just plain out struck my fancy, and I plan to keep on doing that over there. But over the course of the past couple of years I've found myself being drawn more and more to the fascinating world of fashion blogs so I thought why not give that a try?
As a stay home mom of two boys, (who are going to be grown and flown from the nest before I can blink three times) ages 15 and 11, I spend most of my time in sweatpants or yoga/workout clothes. But for as long as I can remember, fashion/style has been a not-so-secret passion of mine.
When I was a little girl we'd often "go to town" on Saturdays (before they built the mall...yes, I'm that old) and I would sometimes insist on wearing my frilliest dress, complete with bells in the crinoline, and patent leather shoes with lacy socks to go along with. Just because.
You won't see me strutting my stuff around town in a frilled out dress with bells these days but I still love the process of putting together outfits and trying old pieces in new ways. My closet is almost always a creative disaster because I rarely end up wearing the first thing I put on. Just ask my husband. He's learned not to compliment my outfit until we are walking out the door, keys in hand, because the first one (or 2 or 3) is more than likely not going to be "the one".
The only explanation I ever have is well, that just didn't feel like who I'm supposed to be today.
So this blog is simply going to be a place where I can come and share all these outfits I put so much thought and preparation into and maybe, quite possibly, inspire a person or two in the process.
