Hello and welcome back to another edition of Friday Favorites. If you are new here, welcome!
It’s been a good week. I have nothing to complain about but I am going to brag about some things.
First, I received this in my inbox this week:
Hello! My name is (reader) and I am a new subscriber to your blog. I wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I first noticed you on Pinterest because of your hair. LOL I also wear my hair very similar to you and I just love a gal who wears her hair short. I feel it just screams confidence! I get my hair cut every four weeks to keep my style so I am with the time and dedication it takes to keep your hair looking fabulous! After your hair I of course noticed you amazing taste for style. I recently retired from the military after 27 years and although I have always loved clothes I never bought a lot because I hardly wore them. Now that I am out of the military and working in an office, I turn to your blog for style tips and outfit ideas all the time! You have helped me become a better dresser and I just wanted to take the time to let you know. I am sure you spend a lot of time blogging, shopping, and taking pictures and I appreciate all your hard work. I look forward to your posts in my inbox!
I left the name out for privacy, but I wanted to share because that makes me smile. Sometimes, I feel like giving up on this little venture. I get tired of trying to find time to keep up, but I really do enjoy blogging in the fashion niche and it is my hope that I encourage someone else and inspire other women to be confident in how they dress. Dear reader, you blessed me with your email.
I shared this not only to brag and say thank you, but to let you know it’s okay to email your favorite blogger and or leave blog comments. Bloggers are real people too and sometimes we need encouragement. We need to know if what we are doing is working or not. So feel free to provide your comments (nice, constructive ones) and feedback. It’s not stalking or weird if you are sending genuine encouragement and feedback.
I discovered this cute instagrammer with the best pixie cut. I spend mindless time drooling over other pixie cuts and contemplating how I might tweak mine. She shared this headband (a similar one). It’s a favorite find for the week. I haven’t purchased it yet, but I have a thing for headbands, or at least for collecting them. This one allows you to have that cute braided twist look. I think I need it.
A cute striped dress is always worth smiling about.
The temperature yesterday was between 50 and 60 all day! A rare occurrence here this late in April! I’ll take it. That makes me smile too because it will be super hot and humid here before long.
It’s been a while since I shared some Jane finds. (The following, and above, contains affiliate links. I make a small commission from your purchases.) Browsing Jane.com always makes me smile.
