Visual Friend Friday: The Perfect Fall Outfit and A Blogger Milestone

 Dress (worn as a top): Express
Cardigan and Skirt: Old Navy
Necklace: H&M
Boots: Reflections


Full disclosure, I did not wear this today. I just took these outfit pictures and soon after changed back into my shirt and shorts.  Despite being the middle of October, it was 92 degrees today. So unlike the rest of the country, fall isn't making its way to Southern California. But if was 20 degrees cooler this would be one of my fall uniforms; skirt or dress, comfy sweater, and boots. The other one is jeans tucked into boots with a top and cardigan/blazer. Seriously I just want to start wearing my boots again!


This weeks Visual Friend Friday was hosted by Iris of 260 Days No Repeats. Head over to her blog to see what other bloggers feel is their perfect fall outfit.

Another thing is that not only has it been four years since I started this blog, but this is my 500th post! When I first discovered fashion and style blogs, I was completely fascinated by them and would spend hours pouring over them. Some of the blogs that I first started reading; Liebemarlene, Ringo! Have a Banana, and Sally Jane Vintage, I still read today and the first post I ever wrote was on Zooey Deschanel. So while some things never change, other things have. 

In the past four years, I have discovered new things that I now fawn over immensely on this blog, tapped further into my nerdiness, finally visited NYC, had my heart broken but have become a little more wiser because of it, and rediscovered hobbies I used to love to when I was younger. Yes there's a certain amount of narcissism that comes with blogging, since I do post outfits and I sometimes I do get down on myself for not being as popular as other bloggers. But I wouldn't change it for anything. This is just a little facet of my life where I get to share my interests and hopefully others will be drawn into it. On that note, I have made some blogger friends that I hope to one day meet in real life. It's great how something like blogging and other social media outlets can connect you to people who share the same interests. It just shows that sometimes the world isn't as big as you think it is.

Finally, not to get too sappy, but I want to thank everyone that has read my blog. I really appreciate those who take the time follow and read my ramblings. I hope to continue this blog with my regular features such as Sunday Videos and Style Inspiration along with my outfit posts and pop culture ramblings. Plus my blog is going to get a mini-makeover soon with some help from Nikki of Design Coyote. If there is anything else you would like me to write about, leave a comment or contact me via e-mail. 

Thanks again for your readership and here's to another 500 posts!

Thanks! I didn't really think I would keep posting on this blog for as long as I have. I used to be on live journal, but I  barely posted on there. I'll keep doing it as long as I enjoy it.

That's awesome. I remember when Sally Jane was still living in Los Angeles. Even if bloggers don't write a lot about their personal lives, it's still a great way to document where their lives take them. It could be the change of scenery because of a move or the evolution of their personal style.

Thank you so much. Funny how my third year of blogging has more post than the first two years combined.

Congrats on such a fantastic milestone Stephanie! If I were in California I'd give you a big congratulatory hug, but since I'm not, an e-hug will have to do *hug*

Also, I don't think you could be any more beautiful in these photos! Absolutely stunning!
