My First Blog Post

Ah, my first blog post.  I could go on and on about what I don’t want this blog to be, but instead, let me tell you what I hope to create with my little space of the internet.  I am not one to have perfect hair or flawless makeup, but I love putting together an outfit that is on trend, flattering to my figure, and comfortable.  If you asked my family what my hobbies are, the first thing that comes to anyone’s mind is: shopping.  I’m embarrassed to tell you that I couldn’t even begin to count how many pairs of shoes I own.  But over the years, I have realized that clothes are my creative outlet.  Finding the perfect outfit made up of a brand new top and a pair of jeans I’ve owned for five years, complimented with an in-season shoe, is my idea of a masterpiece, and I want to share these accomplishments with you!  If I’m being honest with myself, I will probably never have defined abs and wear a size 0, I still have a few pounds of baby weight that are determined to stick around.  But that is real life!  And I know that I am not alone in that reality.  Which brings me here.  A space where I may not look picture perfect in every post, but it will be real.  As much as I love seeing the top fashion bloggers in their new outfits, I know that I will never look as thin, fit, or flawless, and that is exactly where I want to be!  You probably won’t see many pictures of my house, because with three full time jobs, as a wife, mom, and accountant, it doesn’t leave much time for cleaning.  But I’m taking the leap and sharing with you how I am striving to live a content life, clothed in authenticity, and having fun along the way!
