I can't believe I'm typing these words out but today is the 4th anniversary of my blog! I celebrated by doing...nothing! Haha I thought this was a great opportunity to just let myself relax! I've been doing this for four years and if there's ever a time to just take a step back and have some fun with blogging, it's now.
When I started this blog, I told myself that this is just a hobby and I wouldn't let it consume my life. For the most part, I really haven't. Sometimes I definitely get jealous of other bloggers who produce better-looking photos, have better looking blog designs, or can afford more expensive clothes. I can get pretty competitive and I would be lying if I said I never had days where I would stress out about my blog content. 
But then I remember a quote by Ernest Hemingway: "There's nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self." I remember my very first blog post where I stood in my backyard taking photos of myself on a small digital camera and thinking this was fun! I have seen how this blog has grown, not just in content and photo quality, but in my network of people I've met here. Four years is a long time to get to know all of the other fabulous bloggers I've been lucky to encounter. I'm proud of the progress I've made and I really can't even begin to explain my excitement when I think about the future of this blog. Thank you so much for following. 
In sartorial news, this was my weekend uniform -nothing fancy but I thought I would add this cute striped scarf for a bit of February flair. It's casual and cute, but most of all practical. 
Thanks for reading!


  1. I've missed my blog anniversary almost every single year XD This year is my 5 year anniversary so hopefully I remember it lol. I totally feel you about feeling blogger envy. I can't help but be jealous of others who have accomplished so much more in shorter time spans. I love that quote! It's definitely better to look at what you've accomplished instead of comparing yourself to others. Happy 4 years of blogging and here's to another 4!

  2. Happy blog anniversary! Four years of blogging, that's awesome :D I'm sure you'll enjoy it for the many more years to come. It's true that sometimes we see other blogs around growing really fast and can be a little disheartened, but the most important thing is that it's something we love doing and always come back to happily!
    May I just say, your sunglasses are amazing - so unique and the blue lenses are gorgeous!
