Blog: Day One!

Hi there! Welcome! Today is the first day to the start of the blog. In the past, I've had blogs, but never really kept up with them. I am determined to make this one different. I think I am going to aim for a couple of blog posts a week, and then maybe do one every two days, and then maybe one everyday! Who knows!

I am originally from Kentucky. But after I finished college, I moved to California to stay with my boyfriend until he gets out of the Marine Corps (which hopefully is just until December.) So far, I do like California. If I do decide to stay in California, I definitely think I would live in a different part; it is way too hot here. I'm talking like 125 degrees! Anyway, I don't really have any plans for the future; just kind of going where the wind takes me! I tend to move places on a whim anyways.

Why a blog? I majored in apparel, design, and merchandising and right now, I'm not really using my degree. However, college taught me a lot about different fabrics, where they come from, what time period each trend came from, and how to balance out different pieces to make them cohesive. So I figured since I am really passionate about photography and fashion, a blog would be the perfect place to give my knowledge and to do something that I actually enjoy. Who knows, maybe down the line I might end up getting paid for doing this?!

It was kind of tough picking out my first outfit for the blog.. So I decided to go with a trend: off the shoulder dresses.
