What If You Fly?

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Exactly a year ago this month, I posted my first blog post. I had just started my last semester of college and as a biology major, I was drowning in lab reports, science articles, volunteering at a hospital, and other not-so creative things.  As a girl with a love for art, fashion, and creativity in general, I heard my heart screaming for an outlet where I could express these other parts of me.  
At the time, I had been following some of the top fashion bloggers, like Nicole Warne, Chiara Ferragni, and Negin Mirsalehi and I was just in love with the way they lived their lives with so much passion for fashion and creativity.  So I asked myself, could I do something like that myself?  I debated back and forth, thinking I would fail and give up on it at some point.  But the quote "What if I fall? Oh, but darling, what if you fly?" kept ringing in my ear, and I finally decided to start my own blog.  Having no knowledge about blogging, I set out to do my research, and did lots of googling and watched lots of youtube tutorials on how to work on Blogger.  I learned so many things about HTML coding, photography, photoshop, and networking.  Overall, it has been a great journey of self-growth, learning, and happiness.  Even though I am not able to post as often as I would like to due to school and work responsibilities, I find so much joy in shooting outfit looks, writing posts, and sharing them with you all every week.  This blog has  become much more than just a creative outlet in a year, it has seriously become my little baby, and I cannot explain how glad I am about the decision I made last January.  Seeing increasing number of views and comments everyday makes me keep going, so thank you so much for stopping by to check out my outfit posts and leaving comments.  Below, I am sharing with you some of my favorite looks from the past year.  Thank you again, for taking the time to read this long and emotional ramble of mine!
