A Very Casual ‘Thank You’


First and foremost, I’d like like to express my gratitude for everyone who went and voted for me in American Eagle’s short competition. It’s was Facebook competition so it obviously wasn’t a huge deal, but I entered my picture in on the last day of that entry period and was surprised to be selected. However, I thought I’d try to get as many “Likes” as possible because 1. Go hard or go home and 2. Who doesn’t like a free trip? Let’s just say I was overwhelmed by the amount of support I received. It was at the point where I could have cared less if I won because seeing everyone participate was fun enough for me. My family, close friends, acquaintances, people that I don’t even know, and people I hadn’t spoken with in years took the time out of their day to vote for my picture. Gosh, that means so much to me. Initially, I was so nervous about posting it because I didn’t want to be ‘That Annoying Girl’ and I wasn’t even sure that I’d receive much support. So I was extremely grateful to witness people doing something so simple for me when I didn’t at all expect it. A winner hasn’t been announced but I am BEYOND grateful for anyone who took one simple minute out of their day to help me win. I love you, okay? haha

Anyway, I thought these pictures were well suited since I’m wearing and AE jean jacket and shorts. Lately, I’ve realized just how comfortable I like to be at all times. I like to look cute as well, but I prefer flat shoes over heels any day. So you’ll be seeing more of these simple & casual looks, which I’ve been hesitant to post. But hey, its me!

Thanks for reading. More really fun things to come on this blog! Stay tuned.
