I have a process when it comes to following bloggers. I like go back and read all of their archives before I hit that follow button. I do this for two reasons: 1.) It helps me see if I like their style. While I can appreciate all style, we are all drawn to different things. 2.) I feel like it helps me get to "know" them a little better and I think it is much more fun to follow a blogger that you feel like you know.
One of the first bloggers I ever started following was Kyla from Blue Collar Catwalk. Now, if you've followed my blog for any amount of time, you know that I've referred to her before. From reading all of her archives, I know that she loves wooden jewelry in the summer and a special place in her heart for elephants. So, naturally, when I saw this necklace at Goodwill I thought of her instantly. Does anybody else do this? Think of the bloggers that they follow when they see something in stores? Or am I just weird?
I had an urge to dress void of color today. I love black. I will always love black. So it is a comfort to come back to an all neutral outfit every once in a while. Black is the comfort food of my closet.
