A Dose of Denim and Sparkles

This post is just destined to be a bit of a disjointed ramble so I’m just going to go with it. First of all, I’m so happy to have my photographer back! Eric does such an awesome job whenever I ask him to take my outfit pictures and the last month or so of taking my own pictures has been a bit of a struggle. Second, I’m really glad I finally got around to wearing this DIY skirt I made forever ago. It used to be a thrifted XL blouse from Target, but a few snips and a new elastic waistband later and now I have a cute little skirt. It’s on the shorter side and super light weight so it’s great for these hot summer days we’ve had in Oregon all of a sudden. 

Also, these shoes. I bought them to wear to my senior prom and ended up going with a different pair instead. These sparkly little ballet flats then sat in their bag on the floor of my room for two years while I moved off to college and completely forgot about them. Since it’s obviously too late to return them, I decided to pull them out to wear with this outfit instead of my go-to gray flats. Turns out, I really love the way these look, especially paired with a casual jean jacket and knit tee. I think I may have (re)discovered my new favorite pair of shoes!

On a completely unrelated note, I’ve been doing a lot of work on a new blog design and I’m almost ready to launch it! I’m super excited but it will probably mean that my blog will be under construction at some point this weekend. Hopefully everything will go smoothly though! I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about where I want to go with my blog in the future and I’ve decided to vary my content more and start blogging about a few more topics that I’m passionate about in addition to my outfit posts. I’ll also be changing the name of my blog to better reflect that. Thank you for following me this far in this blogging adventure and I hope you enjoy the changes to come!
  • I love your blog, but can't wait to see the changes coming!
