A Focused Blog is Born

Yesterday as I sat ruminating in the *beautiful* sunshine, I had the greatest itch to write a blog post. Surely that’s a good sign. In creating this blog, I’ve received a lot of intrinsic gratification. I’m improving my web design abilities, I’m meeting and networking with like-minded people who also love fashion, I’m researching a topic that I love, I’m learning about new designers and styles, I’ve found an outlet to consistently write, and finally, I have become even more fashionable in my daily life as I am more conscious of the latest styles and trends, and sharing my looks to my followers. It’s been a great thing. However, I have struggled with finding a particular focus that I want to convey. I enjoy looking at other blogs that are generally strictly outfit posts, but personally I would like to write something with a bit more substance and research, mostly because I enjoy doing the behind the scenes work. I’ve found some incredibly cerebral blogs, with thought provoking posts, but most are not necessarily as focused on fashion as they are on current events or news. I also have stumbled across lots of wonderful photos of food, but I know I don’t cook nearly enough to justify a food blog. Maybe a random post once in a while when I’m feeling particularly proud.

But, after thinking it over, I’ve decided I am going to create a model for weekly posts to keep myself consistent and allow readers the opportunity to follow a regularly updated, focused blog. So, by combining my passions I am going to write as follows:

1- On Mondays, I will post an “outfit post,” consisting of one or more of my favorite looks from the previous week, or if I go somewhere special the looks I incorporated there.

2- On Wednesdays, I will post a “history” post, where I reach back to different eras and pull from the styles they followed and demonstrate how it is/can be incorporated into the present.

3- On… the weekend in general because I can’t promise a Friday/Saturday/Sunday specific post as I enjoy adventuring on those days… I will post a “high fashion” post that pulls research from the runways or shoots of the hottest current designers and incorporate it into normal daily style.

Below you can see some of my favorite looks I wore last week. Tune in for Wednesday, I’m thinking something Medieval may be in store…

I really enjoy the double necklace layering lately. This was my Valentine’s Day ensemble I wore to dinner ❤

And finally, I went with the ultra-feminine pink paired with some trendy wide-legged white trousers.
