Why did I start this blog?

Well I started this blog for so many reasons. 

Not necessarily in order of importance.

Reason #1: First of all I discovered the world of blogging through a picture I saw of this blogger on a website, I was immediately interested in the concept. Around that time I had moved from sunny Florida to Virginia and I initiated with the goal of trying to dress cuter in the cold. At the time, I was wearing skinny jeans,boots and hoodies on a daily basis. I would pull out my cute outfits on the weekends for church and my bursting closet was going to waste. Super excited with my discovery I decided to start with a 30 day skirt challenge. THAT didn't last very long. So I got discouraged and didn't continue blogging very well. But I returned! And I'm so happy to be back!

Reason #2: My memory is the worst. Sometimes I wear such cute outfits (other times not so cute...they work in the mirror in the morning but by the end of the day I'm thinking not so much...Does that only happen to me?). So wouldn't it be nice to remember my triumphs and failures. That's what I thought too. Lord knows I can't trust my memory. A daily outfit log is the solution!

Reason #3: I LOVE that when you are having a ho-hum outfit creating day there are all these other style blogs you can visit and draw inspiration from and maybe on a good day another blogger will find that on my blog.

Reason #4: To show that you don't have to sacrifice modesty to fashionably. Thankfully, there are a ton of modest blogs out there. Like my faves: Madams 1 and 2. Which I think is awesome.
