After reading your feedback, it's evident y'all simply want more. More fashion, more lifestyle, more food, and (thankfully) more business. I completely agree, but I have to be honest - I'm a terrible fashion blogger. From the start, I couldn't figure out how to keep this part of the blog going. It's hard to sustain because I don't have a trendy closet and a photographer readily available to take outfit pictures. There's quite a bit of thought, planning, and scheduling involved. By the time I actually have everything lined up and my face on, I'm in no mood to take pictures! Cue: #fashionbloggerproblems.
I've decided, though, that fashion is the most fun I get to have here so I need to tackle it as any challenge. Sure, I'm wearing my American Apparel t-shirts and Nike running shorts on most days, but it's time to use my closet to its full capacity. There's no need to overthink or take it too seriously or wonder if I'm unrelatable if I'm wearing high heels and a midi skirt while hanging out at a coffee shop.
At the beginning of every month, I'll share items from my closet that I plan on wearing during that respective month. Some items are current while others may be dated (I'll be sure to link similar products from around the web), but you'll see those outfits sprinkled here and throughout Instagram. This is going to challenge me to put some thought into the use of my clothing while also spicing up my daily wardrobe and content. I think it'll be a fun and sustainable way to move forward.

The September Edit. Good news: it no longer feels like a wet muggy oven when we walk outside but it's also not sweater weather yet. So, that means I can take advantage of light fabrics and crop tops. Here are a few items you'll be seeing on the blog and throughout my Instagram this month!
Kule Breton Stripe Shirt - I found this brand during a buying trip for Montrose and instantly fell in love. It's the first American brand to specialize in producing the popular French style shirts. J'adoreee.
ALC Crossbody Bag - You've seen me tote this bag around plenty of times. Perfect size, adjustable straps, cool NYC brand with a decent price tag.
Theoy Suede Culottes - One of my prized keepsakes from the whole Harper's Bazaar dream fiasco. These are pretty thick and warm so I'm glad I can put these into use with our cooler temperatures.
Tibi Oki Dress - How beautiful is this print! Very pre-fall appropriate. I'm excited to pair this dress with a light blazer this month and a leather jacket later this fall.
Artizia Crop Top - This top is so good, especially for days when I'm eating like I'm supposed to!
White Midi Skirt - If there's any piece I'm going to be wearing a lot this month, it's this skirt! I found mine at Zara during their sale but have linked a similar one.
Daniel Wellington Watch - I still have love for my brown and black DW watches but this month it's all about the navy stripes.
Banana Republic Silk Shirt - I'll be sporting the safari green version!
Sam Edelman D'Orsay Pumps - My shoe of the month! Still breaking these in but they're so worth it, especially for the price.
