The Reason Behind the Blog + Outfit

Happy Monday everyone! I think a lot of you may not know why I started this blog or what I plan to achieve with this blog so I thought it would be so fun to share it with all of you while also sharing a super cute outfit. I know you already a little bit of this dress in this post, but I just couldn't help but wear it again! This blog originally had a different name, it was called The Lonely Prep. I named it that because at the time I was the only one that dressed preppy at my school. I was like the sole prep among hundreds of girls and guys in trendy clothing. I realized that this blog name was giving the wrong connotation, people thought that I was lonely which I was not. I didn't want loneliness to be what people associated me with. As a result, I decided to change the name of my blog. I ended up changing it to My Well Dressed Life because I thought it was a name that I could grow with. It didn't restrict me at all, it simply implied someone sharing their life while dressing well. And so far I really love it, I feel that it is so fitting for me. 

As for the reason that I started the blog, I started it so I had a way to share my love of fashion. There weren't any clubs at my school that had to do with fashion or just any place for me to connect with others with a similar interest. My idea for the blog expanded as I started the college search process I realized that there was a lot of advice out there that I would have loved to have. So I set out to provide the advice I would have loved someone to have told me. As a result, I began writing a lot of advice posts and really fell in love with writing them. You may have noticed that for a while that was what the majority of the blog was, but the idea of just helping one person inspires me. My blog has become a lifestyle/ fashion blog where I share my heart and my style. But behind it all is my will to help others, whether it is helping others with how to dress or with life advice. I want to be there for people. I feel like this blog gives me the perfect platform to do that, and I am so excited to see where it takes me!
