I can’t believe that a whole year has gone by since I started SometimeSaturday! Gosh time flies. I want to thank each and every one of you for following along on this journey. It really means so much to me, and I am so thankful for the ones who read my blog posts each week. What started out as something so small has already exceeded my expectations. I hope to continue to be able to share all the things I love and help others feel as confident as possible. Clothes have always helped me make an impression on those who I don’t get the chance to talk to. Because of that they have always been an important part of my life.
I thought it would be fun to do a Q&A for the blog’s 1 year anniversary and share some of my most favorite pics. Here are the top questions that were submitted:
1. How did you come up with the name SometimeSaturday?
I wanted the name of the blog to be different and I wanted people to wonder what it means. I started the process by making a list of everything that I love. I took out a piece of paper and an old school pencil and made a list of everything that brings me joy. The weekend was one of them : ) Having a blog of my own had been a dream for quite some time. A dream that I always pushed to the side for one reason or another. I thought that my dream might be out of reach. I kept putting it off. I had the mindset of “I’ll start the blog once this happens” or “I’ll start the blog once I have this.” It was always something that I said I would do sometime in the future. The name SometimeSaturday is a mix of the things I love and the fact that this dream of mine was put on the back burner because I was afraid. Chasing a dream can be scary, but it was eventually worth it to put the fear aside and give it a try.
2. What has been the hardest part?
Finding the time to take pictures!! By far this is the hardest part. My Mom (who is wonderful and beautiful and amazzzzing) takes all of my pictures for the blog. We don’t live in the same city, which makes it tough to find time to take pics. I have to pack so many outfits when I visit my family for the weekend, and Lord have mercy I make so many trips to and from the car loading and unloading my car here in Dallas! This blog would not be possible without my Mom. She is so talented! The pics are amazing because of her, and I am forever thankful that she is willing to take the time to help me pursue this dream of mine. I love you Mom!
3. Are all of your outfits new?
I wish!! I hardly ever post an outfit that contains nothing but brand new additions to my wardrobe. I think that it’s important to invest in key pieces that can be worn year after year. Pieces that can be styled many different ways. I would much rather have one really fabulous coat that I truly cherish or one amazing pair of shoes. Quality over quantity : )
4. What are your favorite blogs and has your list changed now that you have your own fashion blog?
My absolute favorite fashion blogger of all time is Julia Engel . She is so good at what she does. I love each and every one of her looks. Check out her blog if you haven’t, follow her on Insta. She’s amazing and has been a favorite of mine for years. I also really like Brighton Keller and Merritt Beck . I started to follow each of their blogs more closely once I moved to Dallas. I check those 3 blogs almost, if not, every single day.
Thank you again for following along on this fashion blogging journey of mine! It means so much to me. Cheers to you, and cheers to SometimeSaturday turning 1 : )
