Ahhhhhh! It’s my one year blog anniversary! (Or, should I call it my one year blog birthday??)

Either way, I really CANNOT believe it’s been a year since I started this blog. It has become my little corner of the internet where I get to play dress up, share my thoughts, and write. And, I just can’t thank you enough for welcoming me with open arms.

Seriously. You guys ROCK. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support. I wish we could all eat some cake together to celebrate 🙂

(PS – stay tuned, because later this week I’ll be sharing more about what I’ve learned in my first year of blogging!)

But for now, let’s start the week with this gorgeous (and SUPER comfy) off the shoulder dress. I found it last week, and the second I tried it on, I knew it needed to come home with me. I had to get it. It perfectly walks the line between dressy + causal. And as you know, that’s my jam. (A note about this dress: on the website, it says it’s black. But as you can see, it has very fine stripes, so it looks blue. It runs true to size.)

And now, to the shoes. These puppies give me all the heart eyes. I picked them up last summer once the fiiiiiiiinally became available again. They always sell out. They’re just that good. They’re comfortable and it almost doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a wedge. (These also run true to size.)

I’d love to hear what you would like to see more of in my next year of blogging! Mama life stuff? Style? Recipes? Fitness? Let me know in the comments below!

Cheers to another amazing year of blogging!

And last but definitely not least, thank you to these two. He’s not only the guy behind the camera. He is beyond supportive and he encouraged my crazy idea to start this blog, and has been there every step of the way. 

And thank you to my girl. For teaching me how to be a mama and showing me the world in a brand new way. All of this is for you.
