I feel like I'm refreshed, renewed, excited.

Officially, I'm not back quite yet.  I've still got some catching up with life to do and also really want to be 100% ready to take on the blog again. But I needed to come back for a quick moment to share with you something pretty rad. I'm sure you've seen on some of your other favorite blogs but in case you haven't, Carrie Hammer has partnered with a few of her favorite bloggers to bring you her newspaper skirt. When she reached out to have me participate, I was so elated. I've always been fond of her line as it's so perfectly fit for a woman's body. This skirt is nothing short of that. I literally couldn't believe how perfect it was. NOT. EVEN. JOKING. For those who don't know who she is, please watch this video. It's a great story behind her brand and she's such a great, inspirational gal.

She started a kickstarter to help get her brilliant collection off the ground and the greatest part about it- we get to be a part of that. With the help of you, me and supportive others, we could really get Carrie's handcrafted, carefully articulated line in the hands of much-needed fashionistas. I'm really proud and honored to be a part of this. I get the opportunity to support an amazing entrepreneur, a woman doing it all on her own. For more info on her Kickstarter, click here!

In other "important" news: I officially cut my hair since my best friends are in town but this was a 'faux lob'. I had been obsessively loving and rocking since my best friend said I couldn't take kitchen scissors to my hair. Anyhow, it's a LOT shorter now but it will make its' blog debut in the coming weeks, I'm sure. Have you seen it on Instagram? What do you think?
