Five Hundred

500 posts today! I wasn't even really anticipating it, when I saw that little 499 on my dashboard, I just sort of thought, "Huh? How'd that happen?"

This month I will have been blogging for three years, and I'm continually proud of my progress in crafting a better blog... I've definitely come a long way since that first post!

This outfit (from over the weekend, not stupid rainy today) is a bit of a testament to this blogs influence over my style; the newly acquired striped mini paired with a paisley top would never have happened pre-blog, and this necklace was one of my very first giveaway wins - from La Fille D'or, someone who I only know through the blog, but still feel close to. It's funny how well we all get to know each other through our little blogs.

You're such a great pattern mixer! Congrats on 500 posts, hope I make it to that many some day! It's funny how blogging really does give you more confidence in putting outfits together you never would have worn before. I already see it happening with my own outfit choices, and I haven't even hit 2 months yet :P
