April 2013 retrospective

Here’s a quick look back at April. Hope y’all enjoy it!

Celebrating April firsts

This month, I celebrated my blog’s first-year anniversary, along with my first-ever giveaway!

Mutually inspired

One of my favorite bloggers, Erin from Loop Looks, and I teamed up for a week-long “Mutual Inspiration Series,” recreating and reinterpreting each other’s favorite looks.

Below is the round-up from my end, and you can view Erin’s picks by clicking here.

Old & new

This month definitely saw a bit of old, including an early Easter ensemble (which I recreated!), my grandmother’s jewelry, mixed in with new spectacles and my mom’s vintage sunglasses.

Personal faves

My favorite post title ended up a tie. For the most part, I feel my post titles are descriptive (and sometimes bland). But sometimes, an idea pops into my head for a fun post title. First up, “And they call it preppy love” …

… and the fairy-tale-inspired “To grandmother’s jewelry box we go” 🙂

I also loved all the hair action shots my husband was able to capture this month, including this amazing hair flip:

My personal favorite casual look showcased my love of Jane Austen:

And my personal favorite work look featured the twirling power of my new coral skirt:
