Before we get into our main topic of this post, we wanted to mention that we had every intention of making these pictures look cute, but the windy situation had other ideas (insert eye roll emoji). Our sweet mom stood in the wind to take these pictures of us, and we had to include the outtakes for y'all at the bottom;) Too funny not to share! By the way, this adorable balloon is from Big Ass Balloons, and if you're having a special occasion, or just want some fun balloons, they have the cutest ones! Now, for what all of y'all really want to hear about: how we got into blogging!We are sure we have kind of talked about this in several posts already, but in case you have missed any of them, we wanted to talk about it again! Get ready for a long-ass post 😉
When you think about bloggers and blogging, you probably don't think of it as a brand specifically, or at least we didn't. We wanted to talk today more about blogging, but specifically, viewing yourself as a brand. In case you missed our podcast recently, we shared some tips for starting a blog, and we also talked about branding, and how important that is. We had a few requests to go into more detail, so we are excited to chat more about it with you all! Before we get into that, we wanted to talk about this super easy and SOOO comfy outfit, perfect for transitioning into fall. This v-neck sweater is incredibly soft and goes with everything! We always gravitate towards grey because it goes with blacks and browns and is just a flattering color on everyone. You all will seriously not want to take this one off! These jeans are a great dark color and they have just the amount of rips in them, without being too much.
