Happy Valentine’s Day, loves! Anyone else STILL struggling with what to get their significant other? Jeremy sent me THIS video from Jimmy Kimmel that is so true and will make you feel better about not knowing what to get a dude. Regardless, this Valentine’s Day marks my last one as a single girl! I’m actually having to leave work early today to head to my first dress fitting in Charlotte. I haven’t seen my dress in months and was so overwhelmed that day I forgot to take any good photos of it. So I am actually a little nervous about trying it on! I hope y’all have a day filled with love! xoxo

You know the feeling when you see something and just HAVE to have it? How about the straight-up possession that comes over you when said product is sold out? Well, I’m not gonna lie, that’s what happened to me with these rose gold Nike Theas. By the time I stumbled across these beauties, it was too late – they were sold out everywhere. I searched high and low before eventually stumbling on an obscure shoe store in Virginia while purchasing this pair of Nikes. They happened to have one pair in my size left and (duh) I pulled the trigger on both.

Since it seems so many ladies got their hands on a pair of these pretties, I wanted to share my favorite way to wear them. I was excited to hear that Nike put out an entire metallic line to accompany the sneakers. I snagged this rose gold pullover, but was also loving these matching sweatpants. I was just afraid wearing all three together would be a little bougie (ha!) so I opted for faux leather leggings instead. I felt like the metallic nature of the shoe lends itself to something a bit dressier than a regular old legging.

The number one thing I get asked is how to become a successful blogger. Woah, that is a loaded question. I immediately think, am I even successful? What is considered success in blogging? Why are we even here? I know, I get existential quick! So I thought the easiest way to explain the wide, confusing world of fashion blogging would be to round up all the misconceptions folks have and break them down, giving my advice along the way.

After blogging for a number of years, I have heard it all – that we’re all wannabe models (ha!) or that blogging is easy (HAHA!) Let’s get real. There is no guide book to blogging, no class you can take in college, so most of us are throwing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks. I am easily guilty of each and every one of these misconceptions at some point in my blogging career, so I’m right there with ya, girl! Here we go…
