Gossip Girl Dress and New Year's Resolution Talk







As 2018 came to a close earlier this week, and I was thinking on my resolutions for this year, I, of course, thought of my goals for this blog. Blogging has been a funny thing for me, because while I want to be successful and work with great brands, as well as reach more and more people, I also want to remain true to myself, and the reasons why I started blogging (Those reasons being for me - to have something creative that I love to do, and am so passionate about). It's been harder to find that balance than I originally thought. I know this struggle is not new to bloggers - I feel like every blogger I know of has mentioned it in some way, and I'm hoping that I can find myself on the side of doing this for me and for fun the entire time that I do it. It's more and more difficult, to me, because we live in this world where everyone seems to have a fashion blog. And, everyone seems to be amazing at growing their instagram account. But, I plan to keep doing this for the joy of it. I feel like those types of blogs are much more fun for their readers, so I'm all for that! 

Shop My Look:



How fun is this pink tweed dress from Chicwish!? I'm obsessed with this one. It's so polished and feminine, and perfect with my over-the-knee boots. I've been really into dresses like this lately, and this one is so classic, yet stylish, and such great quality! I can see myself wearing this for years to come. Don't you just love the little bow at the collar, too? I absolutely love details like that, as you guys know! Definitely pick this one up, if you're a fan of this kind of style. You won't regret it!
Thanks so much for reading, you guys, and I hope you had a wonderful start to 2019!

  1. That's funny you say that, because many younger women do have fashion blogs. But when I mention it to my friends, I still get those looks like "what is that?" LOL!!
    Love this dress...it's totally something I would wear!!

    1. It definitely feels like something that everyone's trying to do, these days! It's hard to feel unique or like you could ever stand out, sometimes, but I'm definitely going to keep trying!
      Thanks so much, about the dress! It's so flattering and pretty, I can't wait to wear it more! You would look amazing in it!

  2. Omg I remember starting my blog in 2012 and fashion blogs were the it thing! People now prefer 'blogging' through Instagram because it's far more portable and faster. But just like you said, I will keep my blog still because it's always fun to read people's stories from around the world.

    1. I agree, Dyn! I love actually blogging (not just instagram)! I've been blogging since 2011 (another blog name back then), and it has definitely taken a different path since then. Sometimes I miss how it used to be, because I don't really "play" the instagram game..
