Brand new!

So, dear readers, I’m debuting two new looks today; my outfit…and my blog!!

I’d been planning to do a little “overhaul” here for my upcoming – in September – first Blogiversary, but I simply couldn’t keep a lid on things once I saw what my web designer (and on-line friend!) Veronika of By the Shore had in store for me…didn’t she do a fantastic job?!

I’m a champion shopper, and I love putting together a great outfit…but I’m the first to admit that I’m really clueless when it comes to the more technical, “behind-the-scenes” aspects of creating a personal style blog.  Enter Veronika, who took me by the (virtual!) hand and helped set me on my way to a bigger and better second year in the blogosphere!!  Thank you so much, V!!

Today’s ensemble, on the other hand, came together quite naturally once I realized that I could get myself back into these yummy Frye boots of mine!!  Yay!!  Getting them off was a bit tougher…my husband had to yank on that troublesome right one for several minutes before I managed to pull free!!

The things we do for style, right?!  πŸ˜‰

      Couldn't have done this new blog look without you, dear Veronika!! And I gotta admit that it's pretty easy to build an outfit around these boots…they make everything I put them with look fab!! XO

      I'm so pleased with my "new and improved" blog layout, dear Elsie…I'm really glad that you like it, too!! And I won't lie that I'm excited to be able to wear these boots again…even if it's a bit of a battle to get them on and off!! πŸ˜‰

      Hello, dear Anett!! I'm really thrilled with my new blog look; but positive feedback is always so nice to hear…thank you!! And I'm totally relishing the chance to do some truly summery looks right now (although listening to my husband complain about the heat is getting kind of old!!) ;D

    Hello! I just stumbled upon your blog so I don't know what your blog looked previously. But I do know what it looks great now-with the clean and simple look. I'm really hoping to expand from to so I can fiddle around with different blog designs soon. Anyway super cute outfit…I love the western additions to it like the boots:) Glad to find you!

      It's really nice to "meet" you, too, Olivia!! A nice, clean look was exactly what I was after for my blog's new design…and Veronika certainly delivered!! Attention to detail makes all the difference in an outfit as well, doesn't it?! I have to admit that these boots do a lot of the work for me whenever I wear them!! πŸ˜‰
