I’ve been looking for the perfect FIRST blog topic for quite some time. Like, for maybe eight months or so. Seriously. Not to be too down on myself, I did have a baby seven months ago, which of course introduces a whole new learning curve and family schedule adjustment.
But, anyways, I have been looking for the perfect way to introduce myself to the blog world and keep coming up with nada. Lovely way to start your new passion right? Dun, dun, dun.
Here’s the thing : what am I waiting for?
The answer is nothing.
I have ideas. I’m inspired. My mind is always creating, reimagining, sorting and storing feelings, images, concepts, and possible projects. I balance my need to create, to connect, to befriend, to adventure with the needs of my family – my husband and three young kids.
So here I am just doing it. Yes. I’m just putting down some first words. Because there is no right time.
There is now.
Now is the time. If you are looking for a sign. This is it. If you don’t know the words to say, just start talking/writing and they will come. Stop waiting. Stop fearing. Stop worrying. Start living. Start doing. Start being. Be you in all of your messy and magnificent glory. Be you unashamed, proud and bold. There is but one you. So, go share your voice, your thoughts and your art. Go share yourself with the world. You are here divinely perfect as you are. Go own it.
Right now, I’m doing just that. I’m starting. So watch out world. Here I come in all of my glory, in all my of honesty, in all of my struggles, and with all of my dreams, desires and wishes. Here, I’ll share my heart in words as I share my fashion in images. Here, you can learn I’m occasionally fashionable, but always me. Here you can be you, 100% you, and be accepted and loved. I am someone who values and treasures uniqueness. Maybe because that is was is most important to me – being fully and wholeheartedly loved for exactly who I am.
Hello ( blog world ). It’s me.
Seriously, can anyone say “hello” without singing “it’s me” afterward. I think not. Adele you so tricky Girl.

PS. These were some of the first pictures I ever took for Occasionally Fashionable’s Instagram. I thought what is a more perfect place to start than the beginning? I was 16 weeks pregnant with my third baby. I was full of excitement for our growing family and to finally start sharing myself with the online world. I’m still obsessed with this first trimester outfit!
