necklace: on loan from poppy and leo
i don't feel as though i can ever go wrong with this skirt. i love every outfit i put together with it and i think it adds a kind of organic patriotic feel to any ensemble. today i wore it with this ruffled blouse to keep a balance between casual and elegant. the red beaded necklace was a great pop of color...also a great way to distinguish my neck from the white ruffles of the top. white can be hard when your skin is literally the same shade. but using a bright accessory around your face or neck can help bring the focus back to your face.
i am thinking a lot about where i want to take this blog in the coming months and am really looking forward to a new job that will allow for some extra time to work on my passions. this is my first love....well after jeb, ernst and ted. i love the way my blog gives me something to focus on each day and to motivate me each morning. so, i guess what i am trying to say is 'thank you, blog. you've done a lot for me.' in all honestly though, i do love the community that is built around blogging and i love reading about the lives of others, told mostly through what they wore. how fun is that?
