Happy Blogaversary to Me!

One year ago today I started this blog. It was conceived a month earlier when I jokingly came up with the name in a conversation on Facebook about an outfit that I had posted.

A lot has changed in my life in the last year - many things that I don't feel comfortable mentioning on the blog -  but I can say that looking back at earlier posts makes me realize how much happier I am now.  My clothing choices has also changed since I've been able to see what does and doesn't work on my body. I've also become more comfortable in front of the camera, more confident, which has translated over to my real life.

Take this dress. I bought it 4 years ago and it didn't really fit. It does now that I've lost a bit of weight.

Dress: anthropologie
Tights: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Fluevog Mini | Gorgeous (last worn here)

Also, I wouldn't have felt comfortable wearing a dress this "short" a year ago. Now, this dress feels positively modest to me.

I also probably wouldn't have done all these butt photos a year ago. Then again,  I might not have worn these tights either.

I'm changing in so many ways and I'm quite excited to see what the next year holds for me.

A lot of things are still very up in the air and unknown but I'm happy to see where my future and my shoes, will take me.

Thanks everyone for coming along with me for the ride.


  1. Happy Blog Anniversary--you're only a recent discovery of mine. Hope you don't mind if I poke around in the archives a bit.

  2. Thanks for having us, Megan! I can't believe it's only been a year! Seems like you and your inimitable style have always been here. Congratulations on being a unique vision in the style and blogger community. I love your look and you are a lovely person, inside and out. :)

    I have discovered a lot of the same things since I started my blog (eep, I'm coming up on 5 freakin' years!). I am so much more comfortable in my skin, and I feel like I really know what I look like, in an objective way. So much change, most of it positive. I can't imagine not blogging.

    Here's to an even more fabulous year for you! Fame! Fortune! Fun! Fluevogs!

    Love the dress - and I always love a pair of Minis.

  3. Happy Blogaversary! I've definitely seen a change in you over the year. I'm glad things are turning around. You seem much happier in your photos. I love your Vogs with this dress. <3 Hopefully life will continue to be good and better!

  4. Happy, happy blogoversary, Megan! I didn't know you'd only been blogging for a year; you seem like a veteran. I'm glad you discussed one of the benefits of style blogging. Seeing yourself in photographs (even if you don't publish them for everyone to see) is very helpful in building confidence and figuring out in a more objective fashion what really works for us.

    As usual, you look fabulous. I do love seeing your shoes frequently :)

  5. Way to go posting for one year! Your change is very visible, and so excitingly positive. The comfort and confidence really does translate into all aspects of life, as I have found as well. Let's see where this goes...!

  6. I agree with you and the folks above about the benefits of blogging, and that the change and development in you has been evident.
    I definitely see a happier, more confident and relaxed woman here these days, and you really can rock a shorter hemline, Megan!
    Happy Blog anniversary, I hope there are many more, and that life's big adventure continues to be a stylish one with great shoes!
    Oh and what a fabulous dress - how could I forget to mention the dress! xxxx

  7. Happy bloggyversary!! I did not realize you started your blog only a year ago! I agree with the confidence that blogging gives you and the things you can learn. You look fab in this dress. I can't wait to see where you go from here too!

  8. Wow, I thought you had been blogging forever, with your fabulous style and confidence. You and your style are one of my favorites in the blogosphere. Congratulations and I wish you decades more to come.

  9. Congratulations on your first year of blogging - I have noticed that you are smiling a lot more in your photos. Here's to more smiling, more confidence, and more great outfits in the years to come.

  10. Happy blogoversary, Megan! I always enjoy seeing your outfits (inc shoes of course). Completely understand that not everything will be mentioned in the blog (same for me too), but I love the increase in smiling pics and your visibly-growing confidence. That dress is lovely - but as you said - this length is modest - you can take a higher hem!

  11. That dress is fantastic, those shoes are fantastic, your blog is fantastic, and your increased confidence is fantastic! Happy blogoversary to you!

  12. Megan! Happy Blogaversary, and more importantly, Happy Happiness! You are vibrantly beautiful here as ever, and I love the details - how the stocking's ripple-edged stripe echoes the dress's hem, the seaming on the shoes and ribbon-detailing on the dress, just lovely.

    I'm really glad to hear that blogging has been so worthwhile - gives me selfish hope for getting to see many more of your awesome stylins!

  13. Happy blogoversary!! I hope you will keep up blogging for years to come! :)
