I’m a “Type A” kind of girl which means I like order and everything slightly perfect so it’s no surprise that I approach my blog the same way. I’m all about the visuals, so I’m constantly asking myself how does this look, will my concept resonate with others who are reading it, does this represent me and my blog well? My biggest dilemma is always trying to find the perfect theme. I see something that is simple and easy to read but then I think it looks too boring, then I see something colorful and pretty but I don’t think it looks professional. You see my problem? My mini theme obsession has cost me hours of research on blog design and over time I’ve learned the basics but today I wanted to offer you all a different perspective and some added tips that sometimes get left out.
So todays post is more of an updated on what’s going on with the new blog! (im soooooo excited).

Olivia Pope (middle): We all know I’m a casual kind of girl. I love the slouchy cowlneck top mixed with a pair of trousers. Perfect for a winter outfit that can be easily dressed up!
Jessica Person (top right): One of the things I miss about San Francisco is the cold weather. I know most people love LA because its sunny all the time, but I miss being able to wear a nice peacoat, or this beautiful fur shown in the photo. My favorite part is that she is wearing it around her neck as a shawl; it looks far more sophisticated than wearing it as a jacket.
Which look is your favorite!?
Took me a while to figure out how to title this post without the word bootie, because I didn’t want people to think it was about an actual butt. However I’m assuming most of you who are reading this knew that this was going to be about shoes; which means I worried about the title for nothing. I struggle with blogger perfectionism( sorry!).
Yay its August! I love deep colors, layering my clothes and just the feel of being warm and cozy. This week is all about transitioning from summer to fall!
