While what I was reading made me sad, it also made me think about why I started blogging. I started this blog in the summer to attempt to become more creative with how I dress. I tend to wear THIS shirt with THAT skirt and don't frequently mix and match things. I knew that if I was posting outfits, I would think twice about always wearing the same standby things while ignoring half of my closet. I knew I would get more wear out of items that are often left in the dust. Too, I always enjoy taking pictures of events and nights out with friends (I usually post them on facebook) and this is a great way to log what happens to go along with the photos.
It doesn't bother me if no one reads what I write- I truly blog for myself, to mix up my day-to-day ensembles and to remember things that are happening. I guess if that makes people mad, so be it, and they don't have to read my blog if it upsets them so!
Here's a great example of mixing up an outfit in my OOTD. I rarely wear this sweater. The last time I wore it was in December (and that's the only time I wore it in 2011!) and I paired it with this same skirt. To change it up a bit, I paired it with red tights and added a scarf as an accent- something I probably wouldn't have thought to do, except I knew I would post a picture and wanted something different.
