And So It Begins

Hey everyone! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and I hope you enjoy! My name is Addie and I am 23 years young. I grew up in a super small town just outside of Raleigh, NC and have recently moved to Garner, NC. I am a Special Education teacher and just finished up my first year. I am lucky enough to be engaged to my best friend and will be getting married in November! If you know me, you know that there are three things in life that I am truly passionate about: teaching, my English Bulldog, and fashion. Growing up I can remember absolutely hating going shopping. Every weekend, my mom, grandmother, and I would head to Raleigh to shop. While I loved spending the time with them, shopping for clothes and shoes just wasn't my thing. They could spend HOURS trying on this and that in every imaginable store. I, on the other hand, would just sit there and count the minutes until lunch. Clearly, I grew out of that stage... all but counting down the minutes until lunch that is. Over the years, I've developed an absolute obsession with all things fashion and beauty. I've admired blogger after blogger until finally one day I decided why not become one too? And so it begins! 

What will you see on my blog?

As I previously stated, I'm a teacher so even though I love fashion, 99% of the time I'm shopping on a budget. Of course every now and then (maybe more often than I should) I like to splurge on the latest fashion trends or accessories that I just have to have. I mean, who doesn't? With that being the case, my blog is going to be for those who love shopping on a budget but enjoy treating themselves every now and then. I love trendy clothes and accessories but also timeless pieces that I will not ever get tired of. As you will see (and if you know me), I LOVE jewelry and have a particular obsession with statement earrings and bracelets. It is very rare that you see me without at least one bracelet on. Hopefully there will be something for everyone! 

Where did I get my inspiration?

First and foremost, I owe just about all of my confidence and willingness to create this blog to my life long best friend, Payton, who also happens to be my photographer. She and I have been best friends since basically birth and she has always been my number one supporter, especially now. We have been through basically every major milestone in life together and now as we are both engaged and planning our weddings, she is helping me launch this blog! In addition to her, my family, fianc√®, and friends have been amazingly supportive and excited for me. There are also several bloggers that I religiously follow and look up to, particularly one of my good friends Holly! She is such an inspiration when it comes to blogging and a true beauty on the inside and out. 

My First Outfit Details...

Last but not least! Is this not the cutest dress?! And talk about shopping on a budget... it was only $45.00. Another friend of mine has recently started her own online boutique: Luna & Stone. They have the cutest clothes and accessories and all at super affordable prices! Shop this dress here! And also my favorite Kendra Scott earrings that you can shop here! These are more of a splurge but DEFINITELY worth it and they come in multiple colors. The bottom tassel can be removed to make them shorter or kept on to make them longer!
