The Evolution of a Fashion Blogger

Hey everyone! So happy to be blogging today at The Life of Bon. She is such a beautifully funny person, isn't she?

Let's talk about how I came to be a fashion blogger, at Mommy in Heels, shall we? I'd like to think I was destined to be a fashion blogger. (I should probably preface this whole post by saying I am just a tad bit of a sarcastic person if you can't tell!)

I think it went all the way back to junior high. I was just ahead of my time. I mean, I knew way back then that selfies were the way to go. Except, I just had to trust that I looked damn good since I was using my purple Le Clic camera.



I already enjoyed posing for the camera. I mean, who wouldn't want to get a picture taken wearing a crop top and jeans with the longest zipper ever? I think I needed to pull my button fly jeans up just a tad bit higher though. Then I would have been a true fashionista.



As fashionable as my purple Doc Martens made me in junior high, I am pretty sure my fashion sense took off in college. Just take a look at my ribbed turtleneck sweater collection. If that doesn't scream "fashion blogger" then I don't know what does. Seriously though, when you think of going out to a college keg party, the first thought in your mind is "turtleneck sweater," isn't it? Yep. I thought so. It is. Nothing easier to do keg stands and chug beer in than a turtleneck.

We can talk about my friend Jess' leather jacket another day. I could dedicate a whole post to late 90's early 2000's leather jackets. You know we all had one. (ps, love you Jess)

Yep. Every color of the rainbow. And lets just ignore how hardcore we were drinking Mikes Hard Lemonade. 

Although my husband has his story of how he knew I was the one, I am almost certain in was my turtleneck collection that won him over. 

Or maybe it was this outfit. He took one look at me and thought, "that outfit makes her look like she would be a good wife and Mom. And one helluva fashion blogger." 


So there you have it, ladies. I think it is pretty obvious from these pictures that it has always been in the cards for me to be a fashion blogger. When you look that good in a turtleneck sweater, you're destined. 

If you have time, take a second and vote for me here! I was lucky enough to be invited to enter a contest to win a "me time" getaway to Miraval Resort and a Wallis wardrobe! How awesome is that!!! Thank you so much! (and hopefully Wallis has an awesome turtleneck sweater in their fall collection I can totally wear)

Hope you all have a great day! You can follow me here or on BloglovinTwitter, and Instagram!

  2. I am not a fashion blogger, but this post had me cracking up! I remember the days of selfies on my 110 camera, but my favorite was the Polaroid (I spent a lot of money from my after school job on film!)!! My friends and I also used to hang up sheets as backdrops and model each other's closets, I have tons and tons of "modeling" pictures!
