These Are A Few of My Favorite Things...

So this is my first post on my blog!  I'm probably more excited than I should be.  I'll do my best to contain myself and save some information for future posts. 

Here's why I've decided to blog:
I enjoy writing about life.
I enjoy reading my friends' blogs.
I enjoy reading my friends' blogs about life.
I enjoy shopping.
I enjoy reading fashion blogs.
I want to write about life and fashion and how to be nifty and crafty and thrifty.  Phew.

Sidenote: I also want to intentionally shy away from talking too much about job/ministry (which I love) because I don't want my blog to be about the daily ins-and-outs of my career.  Being in ministry, there are certain things that I cannot disclose publically and I do not want to give myself space for a blunder on this type of platform.  That's why I keep a journal :) 

My vision for this blog is one of outlet where I can spill my innovative ideas or attempt to revamp a dresser that I bought at a flea market or whatever may decide to show up.  I love clothes so some outfits may show up on the blog, and I love to make crafts, so some of those might show up, and I love DIY projects and have a few going on at the moment that I will share in later blogs. 

Here's a few pictures to get started with.
First off, my closet.  A mecca of colors.  Some time later I would like to take a picture of all my scarves! 
And yes, I do arrange and organize my clothes by color.  How else would I know where anything is?
And this is my outfit for the day.  I haven't quite figured out the timer on the camera so I'll work on that later. 

This outfit is a classic "Ashley" outfit because it has all the things I love: skinny jeans, cardigans, belts, and scarves.  I've seen other people indicate where they purchased their items, so I will conform and do as well.  It will be good exercise for me to try and remember where I got everything.  Or, I could just look at the tag. 

Jeans: Target.  Shirt: JCPenney.  Cardigan: Forever21.  Belt: Forever21.  Scarf: Walmart.
