The Navy Leopard turns one today. I have created over 200 blog posts and posted 4-5 times a week. This past year I have learned a lot and even figured out some basic HTML code. I am so grateful to my followers and I appreciate all the encouragement I have received.
My top posts are always the ones in which I am little more vulnerable either in sharing something personal like (Eight Years and Reunions, Memories and Milestones) or where I step outside of my comfort zone (Pattern Mix Hits the Gym). Who would have thought I would do a post on active wear and that it would be my most viewed post? (not me, when I started!).
I managed to gain weight while posting photos of myself regularly which in some ways was liberating. Thankfully, I managed to lose it again thanks to Bulletproof Coffee (more on that in Cocktails?).
To celebrate my year of blogging, I treated myself to a navy animal print Equipment silk blouse that I saw in @wearemidlife ‘s Instagram feed. Jessica pointed out that she did not have that one button struggle with this style. I had always loved Equipment’s prints but that one button (we all know the one I am talking about) never worked on me. This is a different style and it fit! Thank you, Jessica.
I styled the blouse with my favorite AG White Jeans, J. Crew Velvet Heels, J. Crew Piper Sunglasses and my favorite new pink bag. This was another fun (rainy) photo shoot with Amy @howtojcrew
