Updates + favorite outfit of August 2016

A few quick updates:

  • Now that I’ve gotten through moving and unpacking stuff (it was a long and multi-step process, y’all), I plan on resuming my regular posting schedule of 5 posts during the week, starting next week! (Yep, I’ll be posting on Labor Day, with my interpretation of the next SIA challenge.) Thanks for your patience and sticking with me during the summer, when I went down to 3 posts per week!
  • I’ve still got some summer outfits coming up here on the blog, as it’s still summer here in the PNW through September.
  • Sarah from Sarah’s Real Life had a great idea to add real-life details to her outfit posts, like what the weather was like that day and what she wore her outfit to. Such a great idea, and it totally fits the real-life style I document here on this blog. I’m adapting that idea and adding that info to the bottom of each outfit post, along with the details I regularly include about the specific items I’ve worn and where (and how) I got them.
  • To make it easier to browse or shop similar or exact items from my outfits, I’m adding collages along with the usual text affiliate links to the bottom of my outfit posts.
  • I start my new job next week after Labor Day, so wish me luck!

And now it’s time for a quick look back at my outfits in August and vote for your favorite.

My most popular outfit this month, in terms of total views, was my chambray-and-LBD combo, #1 below, and this outfit also garnered the most comments. Again, even though I had fewer outfits on the blog this past month, there were so many dynamic photos! It was fun to explore Tacoma during the summer — I’m so thankful we had time to do that — and capture a few interesting sights around our new town. My personal favorite outfit was also my chambray-and-LBD combo, #1 below (although my turquoise-and-pink SIA outfit, #4 below, was a close second). I also love this photo that Sam captured, where I just look so relaxed and happy and comfy in my striped canvas flats.

      Thanks, my first week — new faculty orientation — went well! I was going to wait and see about going back to 5 posts after I settled into my new job, but then I realized I had all these new ideas for posts, so I just went where the inspiration was taking me 🙂
