Hey friends!

So... the blog has a fresh new look. What do you think? I was so excited to share the new layout with you guys and hear your feedback.

It's hard to know exactly what you want when you first start blogging, at least it was for me. With a little over a year under my belt, I finally felt like I could grasp exactly how I wanted the blog to look and feel.

Simple and chic. And I think it's just that. Many thanks to Stephanie from How Sweet Designs for hooking me up with a sweet design and seamless install. Not only that, but it's now a dot com (holla!). I feel like a big girl now.

There have been a couple of times I've gotten questions on how to follow, subscribe, comment, etc. so I wanted to take a minute and quickly go through some key elements of the new layout - although I hope it's uber user friendly.

Follow/Subscribe (umm.... yes please!) 
You can follow/subscribe to the blog multiple ways. If you want an email sent whenever a new post is live - this is for you. Check out the side bar - a few slots down - you should see SUBSCRIBE VIA EMAIL. Ding, ding! Enter your email, hit subscribe and await the greatness.

Don't need another daily email? I feel ya. For those of you who are a part of Bloglovin' - you can click the heart directly under my About Me and it will send you straight to my Bloglovin' account. Hit follow and you're done. The next time you log in to Bloglovin' you'll see my face... or my outfit, whichever comes first.

There's also an option for Google Friend Connect. Sorry 'bout ya... but it's at the very bottom. Doesn't mean  I don't love you equally, it's just not the most appealing feature of the blog. You feel me? Next up...

Labels 
This I'm a little obsessed with. It's also on the sidebar, directly below Subscribe via Email. One, it's so fun with the different font, text heights, etc. - but also, you can click any of the words and it will take you directly to any and all the posts directly related to that subject (as long as I did my job and tagged it correctly). Say what?! Yep! Obsessed with Michael Kors? Oh I got you. Need a chic, casual outfit idea... yep, have that too. Check it out - have some fun. And tell me later how much you love it.

Popular Posts
Want to know what everyone else is loving? This feature lets you quickly check out my most popular posts... not picked by me, but based on your views. How fun!

Moving more towards the top, but still on the side bar.

This is a live feed of my recent Instagram posts. That's it.

Shop the Feed 
This is also based off Instagram and mixed with LiketoKnow.it. Basically, sometimes I'll directly link my Instagram posts and/or outfits with LiketoKnow.it. What this does (if you register your email with LiketoKnow.it) is send links directly to your inbox on where to purchase all the pieces shown in that days photo (unless the exact piece isn't available in which I'll link a similar item). Easy, peasy. Again, if you don't have IG - this section is for you. Click the image you like and it'll take you directly to my main LiketoKnow.it page.

Last but definitely not least, the navigation bar at the very top. Most of these are self explanatory. My favorite one...

Currently Craving
This is a good mixture (but for sure not everything) of what I'm loving or currently craving (see what I did there?) at the moment. It's constantly changing so check it out often. AND, it's the best tool for giving the hubs gift ideas... I mean, he can't ever say he didn't know what to get me. Right?!

Phew. I think that's it. I said short and sweet but you know how it goes. I hope you all love the new layout and find it easy to navigate. As always, I'm open for questions if you can't find something, need an answer, have an idea or just wanna chat.

I'm so thankful for everyone who follows, comments and supports my blog. It means the world to me!

And I swear a new outfit post will be coming soon. It's been cold and sleeting in Texas.

Until next time...
