I Feel Pretty | at One

Burgundy Blouse Black Shorts Fall Outfit Get Your Pretty On turned one yesterday…and what a year it’s been.

It all started with that first outfit photo where I was so proud of myself for actually getting dressed to have lunch with my daughter at her school.  This blog has come a long way baby!

And so have I.

It’s been a daily journey of learning, discovery, friendship, creativity, challenges and growth.  I didn’t start it with any goals in mind, it was just a fun diversion and a way to hold myself accountable for getting out of my yoga pants every day.  I never could’ve dreamed it would grow into what it is today.

Burgundy Blouse Black Shorts Full I have all of you to thank for this.   Never did I think that anyone would actually be interested in what I was wearing, or my beauty routines, let alone my personal stories and family life.  You’ve shown a genuine interest and spurred me on in big and small ways on those days where I wasn’t sure that I could keep going.

  4. Congratulations on your blog turning 1! It is one of my favorites, for sure. Can’t wait to read it every morning. I LOVE your outfit and I’m going to copy it ASAP! I just bought a burgundy blouse yesterday and I have some black shorts. I also saw a bag similar to yours on the clearance rack at Belk but didn’t buy it. It will be mine today. 😉 I’m heading to southeastern New Mexico to visit my daughter for a month. I think this will be a perfect outfit for that trip. 🙂

  5. You are actually the blogger who encouraged me to get out of my running pants! I have a very long way to go to even be close to where you are, but I am having fun putting outfits together with my daughter. Thank you for the inspiration! You are a lovely, genuine friend and I wish you continued blessings with your blog! I have been wanting to try the Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle, so thanks for the opportunity! Susan
