I've lost a few followers recently. This used to send me into a spiral of self-pity/-loathing/-questioning/-etc. It's hard not to take it personally when this is a personal style blog, but as I get more comfortable and confident with myself, I'm caring less and less. Losing a follower doesn't make my style any less good. I probably don't even know him/her so why should I care if he/she doesn't like my style. But sometimes I can't help but wonder why they unfollowed me. I think one of the things I need to work on is my variety. I do love my cardigan-top-skirt-flats-hair accessory combo, a little too much. I can't help it. It's just too easy, full-proof, and comfortable. I've been in this plateau for so long. I owe it to myself and to you loyal followers to grow as a blogger and challenge myself; and as I lose more weight (officially made it to the 15-pounds loss this Sunday. Woo!), I'm becoming more and more willing to try new things. I bought a few pair of shorts recently, which brings me one step closer to pants/jeans. My closet is slowly evolving into more a well-rounded one--less stripes; more florals and lace, like this pretty new cropped tank from H&M's Conscious Collection. I'm really horrible with change so dear readers, please bear with me as I work on trying new looks. I promise a look with shorts sometime this week.
Spring fever is still burning as strong as ever. H&M has become my new favorite store with their ample supply of soft pastels, delicate laces, and dainty florals. Robert hates this cropped lace tank, but I'm hopelessly in love with it. It's yet another and better option to wearing a plain white tee (always looking for those kinds of tops). Blush pink has also stolen my heart and if you know me--I am not a pink girl, but there's just something so sweet and not so girly about blush pink. This skirt was $10 so I couldn't help but get it in a mint green too. Can you believe I found this wooden, floral headband at Target in the dollar section? Just when I thought Target couldn't get any better, it does. Today was my first day of my spring break off of work. Robert and I just relaxed with some shopping (I picked up a pair of sandals and a pair of floral shorts); some snuggling; and lots of hand holding. We're hoping to make it to the beach sometime this week. I'm so looking forward to that!
Until next post,
