A New Direction for To The 9s
This blog has been such a fun project. It has introduced me to so many fantastic people and helped me to feel connected to both new communities and old. It’s hard to believe that I’m about to mark six months of work on To The 9s! Throughout this time, I’ve learned a lot about creating images, stories, and (for lack of a less techy word) content. It’s been kind of surprising to me the kinds of posts that do well and the kinds of words that resonate most with people. I’m constantly learning with every post and always working to make the blog better.
Moving forward, I’m going to try something a little different. In an effort to stay true to my aim of being a blog about navigating fashion and style, I am going to pick a source of style inspiration each month and focus entirely on how you can incorporate this inspiration into your own style. The of inspiration will be like the month’s theme. I’ll choose the inspiration based on current trends and popular styles for the season. I’ll then post outfits focused around the inspiration, how to’s, and more.
I am so excited that the very first month’s inspiration is The Rose. To be totally honest, roses are not exactly my favorite flower. I picked it, however, (no pun intended) because of all of the blush tones and trends that have been surfacing for spring. Also, the flavors, coloring, and benefits of the rose have been popping up across beauty and cosmetic trends this season, too. Not to mention tons of rose inspired patterns making their way into many spring lines, and who doesn’t love a great floral to welcome spring?
What’s to Come
All of the upcoming outfit posts will show off how you can incorporate this classic floral into your wardrobe in a new way. I’m also going to be featuring a rose-infused cocktail, a little bouquet how-to, and a few other rosey surprises throughout the month. So Get ready to be viewing the blog through rose colored glasses!
