Hi lovey doves!

*I apologize in advance for the novel

When I sat down to type this post, I started going on and on about how much I love this dress (which I do) but as I look at these photos, I'm realizing just how much fashion has truly impacted my life. I know that fashion -- and being a fashion blogger -- sometimes gets a bad rap for being "vain" and "materialistic," but it's such an amazing form of expression and representation of growth. I've gone through a lot of ups and downs in my short time living but one thing that has always remained the same is how my personal style has changed to reflect what I felt at that point in my life -- often subconsciously. I remember being in middle school and being so scared to wear what I wanted to wear and what I felt happy in because of things my peers would say. I would come home from school and cry, begging my mom to let me wear jeans and t-shirts to school everyday (thank God she didn't) like everyone else instead of my Juicy Couture blazer and matching skirt (which I loved).

I'm a naturally shy person and the idea of standing out in any way terrified me for a long time. I feel so thankful that I have been led to express myself through this avenue and even more thankful that there are people like you that are at all interested in what I'm wearing. It really does mean everything to me and I'll do my best to continue bringing you looks that are authentically me.

END SCENE.

In other news, this Mara Hoffman dress is a literal dream and worth every penny and these heels from Target are under $40 and also worth every penny.

Enjoy!
