Happy Valentine's Day! Did you have a good one? 

I spent most of it at school and then came home to do some reading. All in all, it was a good day. Not too much pressure and everyone at school was in a fairly good mood (with just a few exceptions). 

Today I did have a lot of things floating around in my mind about things need to be done in the next month. Luckily it's not too much and if I concentrate, they can easily be finished. Teaching is one of the most taxing things I've ever done. Each day when the last bell rings, my body heaves a sigh of relief of surviving one more day.

Today it made me question the way I divvy up my time and the many ways I waste it. This blog was one of the ways I considered as wasting my time but after thinking a little more about it, I began to see it in another light.

I don't write this blog or post pictures for anyone other than myself. There are thousands of "fashion" blogs being posted everyday. Maybe some of those people do it for other reasons but for me, this is more of a journal than an attempt at fame. 

Like many girls, I tend to remember what happened on any given day by recalling what I had on. This blog just keeps my brain a little bit more organized. In college I began a habit of snapping pictures of myself in outfits I really liked as a means of speeding up the getting ready process whenever time was running low and I don't think this blog differs from either of these ideas.

So is a personal style blog a waste of time? Maybe, but not for me.

  1. Your reasons for blogging are exactly why I started also. I wanted to be able to see how my style evolves over time, and also to remind myself what type of styles work best on me. Sometimes there just isn't a mirror handy!

    This is a perfect outfit for Valentine's Day. I'm been such a fan of stripes lately, so you couldn't have chosen better!
