Y'all sure know how to warm a girl's heart. I put this post out yesterday with a little bit of trepidation, worried that you all might think I needed to check into the loony farm. But you all had so many nice things to say about sticking to your guns and choosing your own path versus something expected. Every little comment that came in made me squeal with glee.

So here's what I promise to you: everything on this blog will reflect that aesthetic. I've always strived to bring you only content that interests me and that I think you'll really like. In the past, I did feel a push to sort of go along with what's trendy or popular. But your comments, more than ever, confirm that it's okay to be different. I don't know about you, but I look all sorts of places for inspiration, whether it's my exact aesthetic or not. I hope you'll feel that way about this blog.

What I'm saying is, thank you for allowing me to be me.

Since jade green is a color I do enjoy in my wardrobe, I'm obsessed with Alyssa's coat. And, snow!

More great advice on using Pinterest effectively.

I can't stop staring at this blog. The Swedish do everything better, I'm convinced.

  1. Thanks for including my post! Have a great weekend Lauren!

  2. Lauren, just had a chance to check out your earlier post -- and I have to say that I'm a neutrals girl, myself (most of the time). I think it's elegant, and if it's what you're drawn to then why go any other way? I love that you're staying true to yourself. It can be hard to do with so much visual stimulus and information influencing us all the time. xo

  3. Thanks so much, lady! I'm so glad you bought it–you're going to rock it!

  4. Oh my goodness - I must know where to get that bag.

  5. It's Tom Ford - I tried to find it since so many people asked, but no luck - maybe you'll be able to find it!
