Highlight Real

So, I took an accidental break from blogging again.

If you notice, my outfit is a bit of a gradient from top to bottom. This was my subtle way of showing a transition from Summer to Fall because I am SO ready for Fall fashion.

Spending time focusing on my life outside of sustainable fashion blogging and then getting back into the swing of things online with a remix of an old post has me pretty centered on what’s really important in life. But also how far I’ve come, kinda like a… ; )
