Ok, so it’s time for a talk.
Not THAT kind of talk, a “let’s be real” talk. I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I’m going to pull the trigger and do this.
In the month of April, I am going to spend ZERO DOLLARS on new clothes. That’s right. Zero. I’m going to completely recycle what I already have in my closet. I’m doing this for a number of reasons, but mainly because I know a lot of you follow my blog and think “that’s awesome, but anyone can make cute outfits when they buy new clothes constantly.” True. I’m well aware that most people work with the same 20-40 items they have in their closets and that’s it. Most people don’t run a style blog and shop like it’s a second job.
Also, let’s be honest, on this blog you don’t get to see a lot of the real “me.” You get a foofed up version of me. If you’ve met me, then you know I type like I talk and the blog sounds exactly like how I am in person. However, I’m also a strong Christian and I feel the need to point out that stuff is just that- stuff. I don’t get my fulfillment from clothes and manicures and shoes. It comes from my faith and my relationship with friends and family. THOSE are my values, not all of the “stuff.”
Style is a hobby (and technically a job too) but that’s not real life. I have a real job and 90% of the time these days I’m rocking some serious bedhead and running leggings while I juggle mommydom and working from home. That being said, I make effort when I actually need to GO somewhere (Target doesn’t count), but other than that, I’m comfy because my baby is my priority. Period.
I don’t want to lose sight of who I am, and why I started this blog. I will continue to post my AMAZING pics from Jacque each week on Wednesdays because let’s face it, her work is amazing and I’m blessed to have her as a friend. The rest of the time I’m going to show you regular, but still cute, outfits from my existing wardrobe. Also, I’ll be filing vlogs and a few tutorials which I will put up on my YouTube channel. If you follow me on instagram you’ll see what my focus really is- a baby, dogs, and my husband (if he actually ok’s me taking pics of him, lol).
I know there’s 20 million other bloggers out there for you to choose from, but I’m happy and blessed that you’re here with me. 🙂 I will also (by request) have more pictures of AJD here and there.
If you guys have any questions (ex: how to style a…., or what to wear to….) let me know in the comments, FB or Twitter. Heck, send me a pic on Instagram and I’ll answer. 🙂
This month is devoted to the woman who looks at her closet and thinks she has nothing to wear. Lady, we’re going to work on a wardrobe together.
