IMG_9863so…two things.

1. this is my first adornment post. i am actually kind of nervous to post it. i have been contemplating doing this for a long time now. after all, i am a wardrobe stylist. that is how i make the majority of my living. i majored in costume and fashion at school. i know how to sew, i know how to shop, i know how to fit people. it’s what i do. i suppose i have just always been fearful of posting photos of myself. now, in my mid twenties, i would have been all about it. i was way more into selflies back then. now, a days, i have to be honest, it makes me feel slightly narcissistic. but…for today, i am going to get over that. ย generally, you can find me in a t-shirt and leggings sitting at my computer with no makeup on. yeah, i could step it up sometimes!

the funny thing is, being all alone out here, i have to take these by myself. which is difficult. generally, i am behind the camera and can see the details, like the tree coming out of my head. i just bought a new camera lense, so i am hoping that is going to help the quality of my images too…for all posts.

a little about my style: i like key pieces. one piece, like a dress or top that is a statement piece. accompanied by a necklace or earrings. i don’t like to over accessorize. a little can go a long way. i tend for bohemian like dresses, but i also love that whole kinfolk look too. simple, muted colors. i don’t always wear a lot of color…but am trying to branch out. i am also not a size 2, so i go for things i am most comfortable in. knowing your body is key, but feeling good in what you are wearing is crucial. for example, if you aren’t comfortable walking in heels, you probably shouldn’t wear them. it just looks bad. confidence is everything. i have had many fashion phases, but the bohemian has stuck the longest. thank god it isn’t my futuristic phase from college. i think i finally got rid of all those pieces.

2. i gave my notice on the cabin. more to come on that later.

i am not sure what moving will mean for the blog. when i can post, what i can post, hell, i might never do an outfit post again. but… when i started the blog, i intended to do more fashion. it just didn’t happen. maybe because i do shop for a living, my hobbies became about something else. i also, hardly see myself as a model, but i personally like to see other ladies style posts on their blogs. i finally decided to take a chance and give it a try. seems to be the theme the past few days.

i would LOVE your feedback. would you be interested in more fashion posts? why do you follow my blog? is it the food, the diy, the travel, my crazy banter? i would love to hear from you!
