In the hood: printed skinnies with a chambray shirt and patterned beanie!

In my relatively short time here in the blogosphere, I’ve been continuously amazed by the support and generosity I’ve experienced from my fellow fashionistas…and this past Wednesday was certainly no exception!!

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Inge Geleyn (a new friend!) inviting me to make a guest appearance on, the blog she manages with founder Angie Cox.  She told me that she and Angie really enjoyed my take on personal style; and assured me that YLF readers would love to “meet” me, as well!!

Well, I had my debut on two days ago…and the response has been overwhelmingly warm and encouraging!!  I’ve had more pageviews in the past 48 hours than I once could ever have dreamed of; and I’ve reached a total of 75 followers on Bloglovin, too!!

Thank you so very much to all StyleIsMyPudding fans – both old and new! – for making each of my outfit combinations a joint adventure; I’m absolutely thrilled that you love “what I wear when I’m not at work” as much as I do!!
