Hello out there, (if anyone is still following along that is) I'm back!

Long story short- the end of the school year was incredibly hectic and overwhelming. That, combined with some health problems and general confusion about post-grad life left me feeling pretty blah and unsure about myself and what I enjoy.

People change and I wasn't sure if fashion/keeping on top of the blogging game was something I wanted to devote my time to anymore.

I was in a major rut creativity-wise and generally just questioning if I wanted to continue blogging. It had become more of a chore than an outlet for me to share things I'm passionate about which is not something I wanted my blog to become!

In the past week I've done some soul searching and realized that my blog is important to me and I want it to grow and to be able to share my ideas and thoughts with whoever reads my little corner of the internet. :)

I'm finally starting to really feel like myself again for the first time in I don't know how long and I've got to say, it feels incredible. 

I know that when I move to Orlando in August and begin my internship at Disney that blogging is going to be even more difficult, but I never want to abandon this part of my life because it's such great practice for the digital publishing/fashion career I want to pursue once my internship is over. (more to come on that later)

Moving forward I want my blog to be more authentically me. It's so easy for me to write in that overly-peppy blogger way that so many people use, but I want y'all to come to my blog and leave with a sense of who I am as a person. Sure, fashion trends are fun but I want to provide a little more substance and personality so I don't get lost in all the white-noise blogging creates these days. My new mantra:

So, that's my little story and explanation as to why I've been gone so long and why I've returned. I hope that if you've stuck around you'll forgive me and continue to come back here to read my thoughts and see what's inspiring me each week. Be back soon with new content for your viewing pleasure.

  1. I love that quote, and I can totally agree with you on the hectic school year- mine still isn't over.


    1. Julie-

      Wow, I feel for ya! You'll get through it and it will feel so great when it's finally done :)

      xo, Lanie

  2. LOVE this! I totally agree - it's easy to slip into the mode of what a blogger is "supposed" to be and write about. I can't wait to see what you'll do with this space. So glad you're back!



I love hearing from my readers!
