a thank you note and a clean slate

I haven't realized it 'til the other day that this month is my blog's 2nd year anniversary! Would you believe that? I've been blogging for two years now! I would have never thought of getting this far, but here I am, and here you guys are, whatever state this is. When I started the blog, it was just for fun, initially to keep track of my daily life and my ever so varied array of interests and hobbies. Needless to say, I would have never thought of becoming a personal style blogger  until styling and taking outfit photos became so addicting, that I just couldn't stop. Even more so when I started receiving awesome emails and comments from you guys, it's heartwarming to know that somewhere, outside of my little space in the world wide web, people appreciate what I do, if not almost always. On this note, I really want to thank everyone of you guys (yes, even my haters), for every second that you spent in the blog, for reading my post, for commenting, for looking at my photos, or even just for taking a quick glance.  They mean a lot =) Thank you!

Realizing the anniversary, it got me to thinking about my personal style and all that. I mean, in all two years (and obviously on my recent posts) I think still I haven't developed a particular personal style. Is it just me and because I'm biased on myself, that I don't see much of a difference or have I really not proven myself? I guess only you guys can tell me. But since this is the blog's 2nd anniversary, I thought it would be nice to re-start/refresh on my outfits - clean slate. Does this mean I will erase everything else? No, I'm definitely not going to delete all of my outfit previous outfit posts, that would be ridiculous. But I mean that from this day forward, it will be about discovering my personal style and sticking to it, one outfit at a time. Of course, you can still expect me to wear strange little things like  shocking colors and funky materials once in a while. We'll see.

On me://Top - Bench, gifted//Skirt - DIY//Boots - Zara//Bag - Thrifted//Cuff - gifted//

As a starting point, I put together this outfit that I think somehow summarizes what I think my personal style is. But to enlighten you all, allow to explain in five points. Firstly, I like to DIY; getting creative puts my mind to work in a way that I have so much fun instead of getting stressed out, and it makes me look for inspiration... so I chose this skirt which I made myself. Secondly, I like colors, obviously. Thirdly, I have an affinity for effortless-cool, rocker-like, bad-ass chick looks - biker jackets, studs, boots, loose tees, you name it... so I want to incorporate as much of it as I can into my own looks. Fourth, I like to dress comfortably, which is why pointy heels don't do for me. You may see me in a pair, but very seldom, so let's say I am more of a platform/wedge/chunky heels person (though I bet you know that already). Lastly, I like to dress up tomboy style; no bodycon dresses, please. I sometimes wish I could wear them and pull them off well but I don't feel comfortable in them. No offense to you guys who love them, but I feel more exposed when I wear one, or even just a fitted top, than wearing a pair high-waist short shorts. So with all that said, does this look convince? =)
I want to hear all of you guys' opinions about this. Again, thanks guys!
