For the past few weeks, my incredibly creative PR-minded sister and I have been coming up with ways to revamp ‘ckstayingwarm’. The biggest change I wanted to make was to keep my blog relevant to whatever is going on in my life. Not simply adapting to the winter weather in Pittsburgh, but adapting to all of those major changes in a twenty-something’s life. In addition, I wanted to open my blog up for collaborations with my fabulous sister, Margaret. She is also a twenty-something and like me, trying to figure out her life. To us, it’s so important to have a place where we can both express ourselves creatively.
With that in mind, I’m so happy to announce LYCLY: Love Your Clothes, Love Yourself (click HERE to be redirected to my new blog!!). I hope you enjoy it as much as I already do.
This new medium keeps my love of clothes in the forefront but also will talk more about my life and daily experiences. For the past few years, I have been in a time full of change, transition, and big choices. I’ve been making discoveries about myself and learning a lot about how I want my life to be. I think that it is so important to love yourself and love what you are doing on a daily basis – which sometimes can be pretty hard. While I don’t think loving your clothes is mutually exclusive with loving your life (or yourself), I find that my clothes are a great way to express how I’m feeling at the moment; tough, vulnerable, romantic, hardcore, professional, artistic, etc. My outfits reflect how my life is constantly changing – one look in my sock drawer will show you how drastically my life has transformed from even just last year.
For the past seven months, ckstayingwarm has been a wonderful place to express myself and my personal style and I’m so excited to continue this journey with you through LYCLY.
