inspired + thankful.

Happy Monday! For those of you enjoying a day out of work, I'm envious ;) I'm not so lucky! I thought I'd spend today's post focused on this week's theme for Friday's Fancies to give you plenty of time to brainstorm! On Friday, we'll be sharing our interpretation of gorgeous outfits from across the blogosphere and pinterest. You can see a few of the outfits which have been rocking my world as of late...

Quick side note: this week is extra special because it marks the 52nd week {count it--a year} of Friday's Fancies link-ups. To top it off, the beautiful color crush outfits from last Friday broke the all-time record for most posts in one week. I seriously count my blessings every week for all of you! I can't wait to see what this year brings :) One thing is for sure: I know it will be incredible!

If you'd like to hop on the mailing list for Friday's Fancies, shoot me an email! You'll get advanced warning of what's up next--and you'll meet a lot of wonderful bloggers in the process :) Any questions whatsoever can be directed my way via email--I'm happy to help!

The other piece of news I'm pinching myself about this week you can see here...


After my blog disappeared into thin air for a day last week, I was afraid I would lose you all forever. Low and behold, las week was the week during which I hit this big milestone. For my followers new and old, thank you for making my day brighter one comment, tweet, email, repin, instagram, and post at a time. You inspire me more than you'll ever know. I may not get to comment as much as I like, but never think your comments go unnoticed or unappreciated. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Enjoy your Monday--especially if you're still enjoying your weekend. Otherwise, distract yourself and create an outfit for Friday ;) Have a fantastic week!

  10. How exciting!! Yes, I've definitely created many outfits thanks to the blogosphere. Prime example: my love for my chambray shirt. I would've completely bypassed it and not know how to wear it if not for blogs and pinterest! Love it! (I don't have the day off either so I know how you feel!)
