There’s a lot to be said for being discerning. At least that’s what I’m telling myself as I look back and realize it has been five months since I last updated this here blog. I think a partial reason for my absence has been that my prospective contributions to the blogosphere have felt uninspired and somewhat superfluous. I’ve been holding out, waiting to feel compelled or inspired to write something meaty and insightful. Something that resonates beyond a latest shopping excursion or an #ootd (this is what I am telling myself is good judgement in practice). I’m still feeling that way – still trying to decipher what my voice is within this community of intelligent, thoughtful consumers. I want to feel proud of each and every post, and I’m committed to writing only about what moves me, and what I feel might genuinely interest others and generate some impact. So here we go, back in the saddle again.
A lot has gone down since my last post, including the culmination of one of the most trying professional endeavors of my career, a move into a new and exciting department at work, and personal joys like my sister’s graduation from the University of Michigan and my very best friend’s wedding. As I’ve said before, peaks and valleys. It’s all part of going round and round and round in the circle game.
Since this here blog is mainly geared toward ethical fashion, capsule wardrobes, and the like, I am excited to share some recent developments in that arena with you all. I am currently an Everlane ambassador, have fallen in love with some fun smaller and socially conscious brands, and even had a super fun collaboration with thredUP. I’ll dive into each of these aspects of how I’m living out my commitment to the fashion revolution over the next few weeks, so if any of this piques your interest, please stay tuned. I also plan to share some more lifestyle-focused tidbits, including how Ryan and I are making life in a studio apartment work for us (it's temporary), among other, non-clothing related stuff. It’s kind of thrilling to think about future posts without feeling trapped in the closet, so to speak.
In any case, it feels nice to be back. I hope you’ll still have me, and I look forward to reconnecting with all of you.
