Trendy Teal Turns Two!
Did you know that when I first started this blog, it wasn't really mine?
Well, okay, it was half mine, but it was originally co-founded with Kirsten, my fellow fashionista friend way back in July 2011. However, life took over, and we sort of abandoned this here blog. Then, in October, I suddenly remembered about it and kick started it up again on my own. I was inspired by the fashion blogs I'd been
stalking reading and couldn't resist joining in on the fun.
Looking back at old posts, I can't help but cringe at some of the things I've worn. I was never that super stylish blogger who started off looking incredible in every post. I never imagined that anybody would even read or look at my blog! Its been quite a journey discovering my style, readers! However, I don't regret a single outfit, and I'm happy to be able to click back and remember moments I'd written about or what I wore on certain days.
So to celebrate my blog's birthday, I'm sharing with you my favorite outfits from each month I've been blogging - so prepare yourself for a LOT of pictures! I did my best in condensing them, but that's never been my forte.
Thank you all so much for your amazing support through these two years - its been a huge reason for my growing love for blogging. The people I've met and friends I've made through Trendy Teal are just wonderful and diverse in the best ways possible. Its been an incredible experience keeping a blog, and I can't imagine not doing this!
July 9, 2011 - Our first ever post, when we'd originally intended this blog to be shared. Aren't we so cute? And trust me, I've tried to convince her to join me in my blogging escapades, but she's staunchly refusing. Sigh.
October 2011 - This skirt was a staple for my school style. Since I had to deal with a strict dress code (no jeans or skinny fits allowed - just dresses/skirts that had to be knee length) I had a lot of skirts! I'm grateful for that dress code too - its encoded a level of modesty in me to this day, and I learned to get creative with my wardrobe!
November 2011 - Two totally different styles, huh? (But look, the same pose!) I'll admit, I did a lot of boho looks during this time frame, but I tried switching it up one day when I felt a little rebellious.
December 2011 - A few of my favorite weekend looks.
January 2012 - See that picture on the left? I was ecstatic when that outfit post got a total of 17 comments - mind blowing! I'm still continually amazed anyone reads my rambling.
February 2012 - Oh boy, now its getting tough to pick favorite outfits! I think now we can see my style finally coming along. Oh, and what do you think of my Homecoming dress? I was crowned Queen my Senior year, so that dress will always be special to me.
April 2012 - This was the month that my precious Jeffrey Campbell Litas arrived. I was (still am) so ecstatic to win them in a giveaway!
May 2012 - I graduated high school! It was such a wonderful time in my life - my classmates are some of my best friends to this day. Also, I believe it was around this time that I had the awesome opportunity to start working with My Hot Shoes. It was then that my obsession with crazy shoes began.
June 2012 - This month is bittersweet to me, but it was filled with so many wonderful things. Summer love and new feelings were in store for me, and its both sad and lovely to look back and read about these precious moments. I'll never forget, and I'm so glad I was able to write it down to make sure of that!
December 2012 - This was such a rough month for me, and I bet you can tell even from the photos how sad I was. But I'm thankful you wonderful readers were there to encourage me! I never thought I had such an amazing support system :')
Whoo, well that wraps up my two year recap. If you made it all the way to the end, congratulations.
I just want to thank you lovely readers for sticking with me! I'm planning a major update on this blog soon actually, and I'll reveal that later once the changes are in place. But let's just say Trendy Teal won't quite be the same...you'll see. ;)
