Flutter top. Two days in a row.
Must be liking this flutter sleeve trend.
The double flounce hem is such a nice detail.
I wasn't looking to buy this jacket. Did I really need it? No. But for some unknown reason I thought - I'll just try it on. I tried it on with a plain tee and jeans and fell in love. It took me about 10min to decide if I should really get it. It's classic. It's timeless. It's not a trendy piece that will go out of style. I'll have it for years to come.
That's what I told myself haha. So it came home with me. I felt it ran a bit large, and 00 fit me perfectly.
J.Crew Jacket - on sale! / Ann Taylor Top / Hudson Jeans - similar option for less / Marc Fisher Booties, in suede leather - select colors on sale!, / Rebecca Minkoff Bag - smaller version in red on sale, pretty option for $48 /
Happy Wednesday everyone!
You're probably wondering what the title of today's blog post has to do with this outfit?! Nothing really.
I just thought perhaps it was time to open up again, even if it's just a little.
I must admit that for the past few years I've been struggling to open up on here. Nothing to overly personal just being me, silly and real.
I look at some of my old posts, from my early blogging days, and I miss how things used to be. How I wrote like either no-one of was reading and this was just my "creative" outlet, or I was writing like I knew everyone who was reading and we were all friends...and no one was judging. But there is always someone judging lol. Sad but true. Not that I apparently cared too much back then.
I've been asking myself - what has changed? Why do I write a long blog post, opening up about something, sharing something that most of you could relate to.... just to delete it at the end and proceed with regular outfit posts.
For starters, it seemed like everyone I know suddenly found out I had a blog (that was more in like 2012 lol). But it made things a little awkward for some reason. It still feels a little weird, even though I'm sure most of those people don't even read my blog.
Another reason that comes to my mind - I've opened up about something in the past that a couple of people took the wrong way (most people left wonderful, supportive comments, a few misunderstood it. But I appreciated the honesty of those who took that post differently).
As some of you might know, English is my 3rd language. And while I have been here quite a while I (I moved to US when I was almost 18 yrs. young. Now you learned something new about me haha. That's a start, right?) expressing myself in English is still sometimes a struggle. Just ask my husband lol
So with each post I withdrew more and more.
Obviously there are other reasons, but I got to start somewhere, right ;)
Thank you all for reading an following along. I truly appreciate your support.
