 knots that have nothing to do with this post, other than look pretty

I didn't go to Alt last week, but I've been reading all of the recaps and posts about it that I can find, and I've really been thinking--what makes me unique? Not just in a blogging sense, but in a personality sense, a fashion sense, an everything sense.

I started this blog to focus on and highlight what I like. Not what's the it thing, or what X blogger likes or what Anna Wintour is highlighting in this month's Vogue. To an extent, I feel like I've stayed true to myself, but as I continue to blog and hopefully grow, I'm concerned with how sustainable writing purely about my interests is, since sometimes I have a hard time putting my finger on exactly what it is that I like.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how to define my style--is it preppy? modern? feminine? creative?--but until I read an article in the paper about the Charming Charlie founder that described his style as 'knowing what he likes and what he doesn't', it didn't really hit me that maybe I don't have a style or personality that can be summed up in a succinct little phrase of a word or two.

I definitely know what I like and what I don't, and while I may sometimes like what's popular, I can always give it my own little personal spin. So that's how I'm going to forge ahead--by blogging about what I like, since that's what makes me me.

  1. I know exactly how you feel. And I think the best thing about blogging about what you like is that what you like can always change! Like I used to HATE ankle boots, leggings, and red nail polish, and today I wore a combination of all three. I think blogging can also open up your mind a lot too--you never know what you'll fall in love with next!
