Secrets

Ahhh, Monday.  Weekend, where did you go?!?!  Why do you always come so late and go so quickly?

This weekend I found out that a few of my real-life friends cannot keep a secret (*cough*lisawasityou?*cough*) and told some of our other friends about this little blog here.  You see, for the last year I've managed to keep this thing a secret from about 90% of my friends, with the exception of a few closer ones who I've told and ones that happened to find it through Pinterest.  A funny one was earlier this year when my sister found out about it through a link on an online forum.  Anyway, I guess I might as well say HIIIII to my friends who have been secretly reading my blog--the one that I tried to keep a secret from you.  Ha.

And of course, hello and happy Monday to all of you, my bloggy friends.  :)

Lastly, I love this white skirt.  I've decided that it will be one of my closet staples for always because...what DOESN'T go with a white skirt?

  1. one of my biggest fears is one of my friends in particular who is a pinterest addict finding my blog through there somehow.  the last time i saw her she was also raving about the modcloth website and quoted the name of a style blog i knew of run by someone who wears a lot of modcloth... eek.  there aren't many degrees of separation keeping me hidden.   hopefully i can embrace it as well as you have when/if someone i know finds my blog!

    and i love your white skirt, for some reason i have always shied away from white skirts but what a great summer staple!

  2. Hahaha! I used to only tell my sisters about my blog and just recently had the courage to tell my friends on Facebook. I still feel weird when they ask me about my blog face to dace. Hahaha! Love your outfit! :)

  3. My boyfriend just found my blog. He of course knew that I was doing it and posting photos but it was SO hard when I found out that he subscribed to it! He doesn't understand why I feel this way but I am glad to know I'm not alone!

  4. You look so cute. Always love your outfits.
    So funny about the blog secret..I do the same and only told a few people about mine--which is much newer and unsophiscated in comparison to yours.. My one friend is always saying "Oh get a picture of this for your blog" and if we are in public I have to quiet her down. :)

  5. First off, you look darling!  Love this outfit, per usual.  Secondly, I am a closet blogger too!!  I can count the number of friends/family on one hand that know about my blog... I'm not purposely keeping it a secret, but I'm not telling people either.  I don't really know why, either...

    Love that shirt and skirt! I never seem to find skirts like this at Forever21, you are obviously good at finding awesome a-line skirts there :)

  8. Most of my family and friends and co-workers know about it. The only people I try to keep it a secret from are my students, but even they have stumbled across it on Pinterest. It's so nerve-wracking!

    I love pairing this colorful t-shirt with the white skirt, very fresh!

  9. I think don't think anyone but my best friend knows about my blog (except my family and boyfriend of course). I mean, its a little strange right, taking pictures of ourselves and putting them on the internet? But its also fun and a great way to connect with people across the country :)

  10. that is such a cute and fun top! :)

  11. that is too funny.  I too kept my blog a secret from many (and still do).  I have been "pinned" very few times but a student teacher at my school came up to me and said something about finding my blog.  Thankfully not many other teachers around me were paying attention.  Now most of my close friends know, but am still somewhat embarrassed that I have a blog where I post my outfits. : ) for some reason not everyone reads fashion blogs so that does sound a little strange i guess?  anyway you should be proud of your adorable blog and awesome style!

  12. I'm also unofficially keeping my blog a secret. Well some of my friends know, and I don't really mind. But I have a rather public day job and I wouldn't like everyone to know about it. At the same time, I would like everyone to know about it! Hehe! It's just me being selfish with my projects. 

    Also, this skirt is great and I love white. I just feel like it's always so difficult to find white garments that are not too transparent. With a top, you can always wear a white tank top underneath but with bottoms.. it's more difficult. I don't like my underwear to be seen ;)

  13. You are so funny!  I just started my blog about a month ago & I post my blog's on my personal site for my friends to read.  But when they ask me about it in person, I feel so shy about it.  I have no idea why?

  14. I love the white skirt. Actually I love the lines of all your skirts and how you pair them with your striped shirts. It looks so casual yet put together. I realize how much I love the look and that I only have 1 striped shirt so I'm clearly falling behind.

  15. My job is really public too, which is another reason I'm trying to keep this thing somewhat under wraps.  I'm getting okay with a few more style-minded, blog-savvy friends knowing, but there's a lot who still find the world of blogs to be weird, and even more so the world of style blogs!

    I usually wear a slip under skirts, especially the light colored ones.  It helps with the worry of undergarments being seen and it smooths over any bumps!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Haha, well at least your friend is style-minded, so if she found your blog she would probably understand.  My fear is the people finding out who think blogs/style blogs are weird or are totally foreign to them.  I mean, taking pics of yourself all the time IS a little weird, and a lot of people won't get it haha.  You should just tell your friend.  She might be really excited!

  17. Hahaha omg, some of my friends who know about my blog are SO LOUD about it around other friends, too! I'm like, "Dahhhhh!  Shh!!"

  18. They have a ton online, and lately they've had a lot of modest ones to the knee or below which makes me happy!  Also, I bought this skirt in three colors: white, the navy one, and the rust one I posted not too long ago.  I couldn't help it!

  19. Very cute!

  20. You just never know how someone is going to react when you tell them you take pictures of yourself and post them online for a hobby.  Haha.  I can't blame 'em!

    ReplyDelete
  21. haha I didn't realize that I've been pairing skirts with stripes so much, but you're totally right!  Well, you know, if it ain't broke...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hahaha. That's why I never bothered keeping a secret. I am amused when I forget some people don't know and casually-accidentally drop it into conversation, though.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love the skirt! A white skirt is a must have for any woman!

  24. Lovely Audrey

  25. I remember when your sister found out about your blog, since I post on that forum myself. It was pretty funny! I love your blog and recommend it there when I can.

  26. You were able to keep it a secret for a long time. I couldn't do that! I suck at keeping secrets!

  27. I FEEL THE SAME WAY!  I want everyone to know about it... except for my friends.  Those people I don't want knowing about it until I'm a huge bloggy success with TJ Maxx commercials.

  28. I bought one of those for some skirts. I need a shorter one now too. The problem is I would love to have white pants or shorts, but same problem here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. In my world, if it doesn't go with white, I don't own it.  We just won't discuss how many white shirts I have.... (:  Really love that striped shirt!  Such a great pop of color and texture!

  30. You are adorable. I love that it was a secret- and I'm also glad the secret is out. Putting Me Together is so helpful! You can't hide it. It would be wrong. :)

    This was funny to me. To me your blog is one of the big fashion blogs, so it seems like it would be hard to keep a secret. My blog is a secret from some people just because I've heard jokes about "my online diary" lol. A friend nearly busted me out once when she said something like "You better put these pics on your blog" during a group photo, haha! I laughed it off like she was joking and it worked as far as I know.
