Today's post is special for a variety of reasons. This outfit is from my birthday in August, which was pretty special. It should be apparent I love dressing up, and sharing what I've found during one of my shopping trips, which is one of the reasons I started blogging. It felt appropriate to share now because it is my blog's anniversary! I've officially been blogging for 4 years, and I can't believe that much time has passed since I started. So much has changed since the first post, and I am really happy with what my blog has become and what it looks like.
This post is also special because this dress I am wearing was designed by my good friend KT of KTR Collection. I picked it up in 2 colors. I initially missed my chance of getting this dress in blue because it sold out right away, so I picked it up in cream because I loved the print and hi-low design. I feel the blue compliments my skin tone a lot more and was glad to snatch this one up when it was restocked. This dress in blue is sold out now, but it is available in cream and there is a skirt version as well. Check out her website to see her other pieces and her new swim line in time for Spring Break!
I have to highlight the bright accessories I picked out. I like to step up my outfit for my birthdays, and wearing the Manolo Blahnik heels I found through The Real Real felt appropriate for a special day. I love the detail and yellow color. My belt is a thrifted find I scored through thredUP and has made its way to the blog before. I like that this color also compliments the tones in the dress and matches my purse.
Whether you are stopping by my blog for the first time, or have been following for the past couple of years, thank you for your support! It means a lot to me that you stop by to see what I wear or read what I have written and I hope to keep sharing for awhile.
