As this blog has evolved over the past several years, I’ve found myself constantly reevaluating and taking new direction. While I’ve never strayed too far from my home décor/ DIY roots and platform, I’ve always thought there was another topic, or two, that would flow well with my brand. One of them, is my personal fashion.
I know most of you are here for the decorating and DIY projects, and you’ll still get plenty of them, but I’d like to try a new avenue as well, and that’s where today’s post comes into play. I’ve never really felt that I was over the top “stylish”, and my main goal when dressing myself has always been to remain true to my conservative self, while mixing and matching items I already own to create a simple, but sophisticated outfit that makes me feel better about the day, and something that gives my confidence an extra boost. I don’t know about you, but when I’m more put together, I feel better about myself and my day, which makes everything seem a little bit better.
So, that’s where the idea of Fashion Friday was born… I’m not planning on making it an “every Friday” post, but rather twice a month, which will still give us plenty of time to talk and discuss all things home and DIY related. But today, I’m sharing my first “outfit”. I hope you enjoy this new addition to the blog as much as I do… My hope, is that you’ll enjoy seeing more of me, the girl behind the blog, and that maybe, if you need it, you’ll get some new ideas for your wardrobe. 🙂
A few things to note about my style: I love bargain shopping for my home, and clothes. Several of the items I wear will be from ordinary stores, with an ordinary budget. I consistently wear a lot of the same things, just mixing and matching with other items. I will splurge on a few items here and there, but it’s always something I majorly love and can wear in different ways. I’m always on the simpler side of fashion… always. Whatever I wear, it must be comfortable.
Enjoy, sweet friends. Outfit details will be below. 🙂
