Happy birthday! Not to me, specifically, but to the blog. It’s been about a year since I started this little experiment, and while I’ve been feeling hot, cranky, and uninspired about style recently, I’m not ready to give up. Looking back over the past year could get me excited for the next one, yes?
I’ve learned that my summer style is quite blah. It hasn’t helped that this summer, in particular, has been overly hot, and that Washington DC is just about the most humid place ever. Seriously, when I stepped off the train home from Orlando, it felt much more gross than it had the entire weekend in Florida. I haven’t yet figured out that sweet spot between my style, which is still evolving, and dressing for heat-and-humidity.
I’m looking forward to cooler weather coming, so I can pull out all my tights and scarves and cardigans again. Last year’s winter, although mild, still provided many opportunities for layering and playing with clothing. I just picked up some yarn for which to make two sweaters! Sweaters! I’m also going to try making some outfits based on my style board on Pinterest.
Since I’ve been having trouble with my camera lately, and have no recent outfits to show yet, I’ll round out the post with some of my favorite outfits from the last year.
