11th Blogoversary

· Where do the years go? ·

October 6, 2017 18 Comments

This blog started on October 6th, 2006. I was just shy of 31 years old. Now I’m pushing 42!

My ten year blogoversary was last year. After a milestone like that, eleven seems like no big deal. In fact, I’m just marking time until I hit twenty years.

I’m still wearing the original blouse and skirt from the 2006 post. That’s about all that’s remained the same! I’ve changed shoes, hair, states, husbands, pets, and careers. I doubt 2006-me would have expected I’d still be blogging and challenging myself to create and photograph a different outfit (almost) every day. In fact, October 6th is the one day a year when you can expect me to rewear an outfit.

My style has evolved as expected, but the biggest change is how I source my clothing and accessories. Whenever possible, I now try to purchase second-hand. It’s kinder on the environment and my wallet. It’s also more fun. In fact, without thrifting, I doubt I’d have continued outfit-a-day blogging. Nothing in this outfit is thrifted, but it’s approaching home-grown vintage, just like me.


Shirt, Newport News. Skirt, Talbot’s. Boots, Miz Mooz.


Here’s to another great year!

    That outfit is holding up really well. I’m expecting to see you pair it with your newer green blazer with the stars on it soon.

    Yay ! congrats. I remember that skirt, I cannot believe it’s been that long and that everything looks like the first day, both items have passed the test of time, husbands, pets and careers 😉 I think I began to follow in year 2. In my case, I have nothing left of my first outfit post and if I did, well they would most likely not fit.
    Looking as good as the first day K.

      Thanks! The skirt lining is totally shredded and I had to replace the hook and eye above the zipper, but it is passable!

    Thank you so much for sharing for so long, that is an amazing accomplishment. I think I started following about 4 years ago but you’re the only blogger I’ve stayed with -you’ve stayed unique, interesting, stylish, and unaffiliated -plus you continue to keep an intensive posting schedule (wow) and appreciate thrifting on a very relateable level and for similar reasons. As I started this post I was pondering if I’ve stuck with anything that required nearly daily commitment for 11 years and well… prolly not haha. I also find your exercise posts inspiring and have started thinking of Sundays more as “sporty” than lazy… the fact that you can fit the same outfit each year is also an inspiring constant not many can claim ;).

      I was thinking that I should revisit the exercise posts. They inspire me, too. Thank you for your years of reading!

    Congratulations on this milestone!
    I have been reading your blog since around 2008.
    Your outfits are always creative with interesting backdrops and showcase your excellent photography skills. I especially enjoy the different series posts like ‘come thrifting with me’, ‘capsule wardrobe’, ‘sporty sunday’. Wish you lots of success with your blog and all your projects!

      Thanks for being a long-time reader! Now I have two votes for Sporty Sunday. I guess it’s time to bring it back!

    Congrats on 11 years!! I think I’ve read all of your posts and am as just as inspired today as I was when I found your blog years ago. I love how real and relatable you are as well as how much fun you have with your clothes and life. Thank you for inspiring others to create their own style and have fun in the process!

    I love seeing these retrospective photos and watching your style evolve. I love your creativity and fearless use of color and pattern. I also appreciate that you thrift rather than buy new. . .you are an inspiration in many ways.

    Somebody has to blog daily…..all the other fashion bloggers have died out! It’s a marathon not a sprint.
    I like that green skirt….forgot it is Talbot’s.

      I’m carrying the torch!
