Casual Cool for Spring

Hey Everyone!
Isn't it so inspiring to read the blogs of our peers? I find that no matter where I turn in the Fashion blogosphere I find so much inspiration. Sometimes I don't have the time to comment on all of the beautiful things I see, but they inspire me nonetheless. 
I wanted to take a minute to talk a little bit about where I see this blog going, for the moment anyways. : ) I am so thrilled with how things have progressed thus far and I would really like this little blog to expand even further. I have many plans hatching in my brain but amongst them are themed posts (I believe I spoke about this previously) and perhaps a few showcases of my many DIY's - fashion related of course. I was also toying with the idea of a Closet section... we'll see where that one goes.

What would you like to see more of on this blog?
I'm feeling very casual this morning, the outfit proves it. Do you remember these pants from HERE?  This vintage Ro-el bag was one of my best finds - you'll be seeing it again. Have a superb weekend!

PS 9:48 AM - I just found out I was selected to be featured in North On Harper's "NoH Does: Maximum Style" post!
I am so grateful and excited for the feature. There is a photo from yesterday's post on my Vintage Maxi dress and how I styled it. Thanks so much Alexis at North On Harper!

  1. Hi Lydia! I love that about having a blog, all the ideas I get throughout the day. I love the freedom I have, to create what I want without rules. I find that as time goes by the vision for my blog shifts and grows. Totally relate. I saw you mentioned maybe doing a closet section. Not sure what you had in mind BUT I love seeing other people's closets. From how they organize it to the items they own. Anyway, excited you are a having as much fun working on your blog as I am.
