Hi friends! I am quite excited because this week, for the first time ever, I am taking part in "Fall Fashion Week"!
Before I jump right in, there are three things you should know about me:
1. I'm really not any sort of a fashionista. Creating a look that is unique and flawless, pulled-together just so, like something out of a magazine... well, that usually eludes me. Fashion boggles my mind a little bit, I'm not going to lie. There's just so many choices one must make! So many different looks out there! How do I know which accessory goes with what outfit? What's in and what's not?? Mind-boggling, I tell you. And sometimes, I just don't care. If you knocked on my door on a lazy stay-at-home day or ran into me buying milk at the store, chances are you would find me in my yoga pants, a tank top, and a hoodie, my hair held back with a ponytail and a headband. Just keepin' it real. :)
2. That being said, I do LOVE clothes. I love feeling "put-together" and stylish, and I feel that the older I get, the more I'm finding my own style. I'm discovering the things I love and the styles to which I keep coming back. I'm realizing what makes me feel happy and cute when I wear it, and what works for my lifestyle as a busy mom with three young children. And fall clothes?? They're simply the BEST. That's why I was so excited to take part in this fashion week.
3. I am awkward and never know how to pose for pictures. Sorry. hehe.
