So, this is what a first blog post looks like! Well, what do ya know!? What I’m still trying to figure out is why I’ve dragged my feet about taking this plunge into the blogging world. I suppose part of me didn’t want to get lost in the endless sea of blogger-beauties out there and I’ve always had to fight the urge not to be the fish swimming up stream, ya get me? So my pride aside, here I am. I had the realization recently that I’m cool with blogging as long as it inspires, bleeds authenticity and offers a place for you feel like you belong. A place you can turn the switch off in your busy day, if only for a moment.
All of that aside (for now) I’m here because of a life long dream to be a fashion stylist! Some one who can support the every day woman through her personal style journey. I’ve quickly learned through my work that the journey encompasses seasons of life that hold significance for each woman. Some that have had new babes, some that have lost weight and feel like they’re dressing an entirely different person, some that simply feel lost when it comes to their personal style and wonder if they’ve even got one at all! Every single woman is different; each one beautiful with a story worth sharing.
Coco said it best,
I hope to offer you a way to connect to the fashion world but also to my world! I wear so many hats like so many of you! My days are full of running kids around, fashion research, exhaustion, personal styling and shopping, wife-ing, grocery shopping, coffee, emotional days and days to celebrate! I hope this can be one of the places you come and feel understood. Where whatever hat you’ve got on for the day is being worn by other women too, even if it’s styled a little differently.
Today I’m wearing my mom hat, stylist hat and I just picked up this blogger hat that I’m still getting a feel for! You’ll have to let me know what you think sometime. So, I suppose that’s it then. I’m a stylist and I’m a blogger. Maybe. We’ll see.
Thanks for being here, I am SO glad you are!
