Okay, so I know you may be thinking that this isn't that casual of an outfit, but I say that it is. Something about the ripped jeans and the long sleeve t-shirt under this peplum give this outfit a dressed down look that I like. I like to think of it as 'polished casual.'

I like to share a few random facts about myself every week since I link-up with Shanna for her weekly Random Wednesday link-up, but this time I'm just going to ramble a bit about my blog and why I started it.
To be honest, I can't really remember why I started it other than I needed some kind of hobby. And if you asked me when I started it, I would have to look back through the archives for the exact date because I don't remember. I know that I had just recently had a baby and needed something for me (if you are a mom, you know how precious 'me' time can be!). I also had the brilliant idea to start a personal styling business. I had a website built, business cards made, and didn't do a thing with it. I don't think that I was very confident in myself so I didn't push it.
Both of these things, my blog and the personal styling thing, fell to the wayside. I got pregnant with my second baby and could not focus on anything to save my life. I was doing good to plan the few dance classes that I taught. After Gabriel (no. 2) was born, I began to devote more time to my blog because 1) I missed it, and 2) a close friend encouraged me to start back again.
While I have been pretty hard core about my blog for the past two years or so, the personal styling thing hasn't gotten off the ground (not that I have tried). It is something that I definitely want to pursue in the future and I feel like my blog has given me the confidence that I need to go out there and make the women in my city feel good about themselves.
So if you are in the northwest LA (not to be confused with L.A.) area, click on the personal styling services tab above. I would love to help you out!
