Home > Fashion > Breaking The Ice


It’s been 2 years since I posted my face at my own blog back when I was pregnant {with the exception of a few far away shots for sponsored posts where my face was required} and I’m just not sure when or why I lost my nerve. A few guesses are… I was a new mom and always looked/felt tired, who has the time to dress up???, things have shifted since I had a baby, I can’t just snag my husband and run out for outfit pics when I have a little toddler at home, Pinterest and Instagram have blown up in the past two years and sometimes I feel like my pics just aren’t “perfect” enough anymore…

Eeek! That’s a long list, but I’ve had every one of those thoughts. My blog is my creative outlet and inspires me to, as my tagline says, “Try something new today”! So, my “something new today” is an outfit post. I’m breaking the ice and hopefully it will get a little easier each time. I’m turning inspiration, this Kendall Jenner look for less I found at my friend The Budget Babe’s blog, into reality today! My sister was here in Florida visiting from Washington this week, so we had a little bit of girl time while our hubbies watched the kids… getting dolled up, dressed up, and snapping up pics. It was SO FUN! Thanks The Budget Babe and sister for making me feel pretty again!




Forever 21 tan turtleneck {sold out – similar here} | H&M quilted faux leather miniskirt | Forever 21 long black wool-blend coat | Zara black and white two-tone satchel {sold out in white – similar here} | ModCloth black lace-up boots | JewelMint Blanc Bomb white and gold ring

Hopefully I did the outfit justice. I love all of the pieces. They’re perfect for mixing and matching. I can’t wait to wear the faux leather quilted mini skirt out on a date with my man.

Do you read blogs for inspiration and then turn inspiration into reality when you find the time? I hope so! Is this a look you would try?
