After two years of blogging, I finally fulfilled my (admittedly cliché) desire to do an outfit post with balloons! Of course, I didn't realize just how windy it was until I got outside... it was a bit of a struggle, to say the least! But I managed to snap enough decent-looking photos in the end, and even though my toes were frozen, it was worth it!
I inadvertently matched my outfit to both the balloons and my blog layout, which seems sort of fitting for a blog anniversary post. I wear so many kooky prints on here that it almost seems strange to play with just color! I hadn't worn this dress in a while, and it makes me wish it came in more solid colors. I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of PUG's spring line, so who knows, maybe they'll expand their range of Jenny dresses! I'm also pleased with this little record player brooch I made (though I use the term "made" loosely, since all I did was hot glue a pin on the back of a dollhouse piece I found on eBay). Even the name of the little record felt right for this outfit -- it reads: "Give Myself A Party," and I guess I decided to do just that!
I mentioned this in my 2-year blogiversary giveaway post (if you haven't entered yet, get on that!), but I wanted to reiterate how thankful I am for all of you who continue to follow and support my blog. When I first started blogging, I often felt the need to downplay or apologize for it; I was worried that people would think it was a really superficial and silly thing to pursue. But over time, I realized that while my blog isn't something that'll change the world, it certainly makes my own little world a lot more joyful -- and that is more than enough of a reason to feel proud of it. I've chronicled a lot of ups and downs on my blog, and I truly appreciate all of you who've left such kind and encouraging comments and decided to stick with me through it all. Getting to connect with all of the people who love to have fun with fashion has been the most rewarding outcome of this entire venture. I'm excited to see what this next year has in store for my blog, and thank you all for taking this journey with me! </sappy blabbing>
