Happy Launch Day!

I am so excited to present this to everyone!! Until this day, I have been prepping and tweaking and nitpicking my blog so that I could launch it, like I did today. You see, I had a strategy…I wanted to reach a set goal on @mystyyle before I showed it to the world, so to speak. So that is what I’m doing. January has been filled with new and exciting opportunities, which includes Pearls and Polkadots! This is something I am completely diving into and rather excited about…

How did it all begin?

It actually all began with taking photos of my daily outfits. As I started to accumulate more pieces, become more interested in fashion, and take interest in what I was wearing each day, I started taking “outfit photos” (photos that showcase the entire outfit, smile down). I began to post them on my personal IG, until one day I decided…”I should dedicate an entire account to this alone…”. So I did. Soon after that, I gathered a following, and a few people put the idea of starting a blog in my head and VOILA, Pearls and Polkadots was born!

Why ‘Pearls and Polkadots‘?

When I was small, I always admired my Mother’s and Grandmother’s pearls. Pearls are simple, classic and go with pretty much everything. I also LOVE polka dots and a lot of the looks that I was bringing together included polka dots in some way. So why not put pearls together with polka dots? Pearls represent the classic style that I love. Polka dots represent the care free, bubbly person that I am!

Future Plans…

Expressing myself through fashion allows me to show who my true self is. I want to showcase that through Pearls and Polkadots and show you who I am! Writing is a love of mine, and fashion is another love of mine…so together, fashion and writing is what I am dedicated to whole heartedly!

Above is a look I put together this week – very teacher-like, don’t you think? Stripes on stripes – inverse stripes! I could not wait to wear this look to my kindergarten class. I had a lot of little kids pointing out all of the patterns, so it was a great way to teach them the stripe pattern (they are still grasping this concept). There’s my little fashion blurb! Enjoy!!

Have a lovely weekend everyone – and come back soon!
