Ally top, thrifted skirt, Target shoes, Oasap bag, Sportsgirl hat
I don't even know where to start with this post! Firstly, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the support that followed my recent post. I have never been so overwhelmed with comments, emails and messages that were so filled with support, kind words and encouragement it almost had me in tears. That post was so, so hard for me to do but I felt that it was so necessary - so many young girls suffer from acne and I had to let them know that they weren't alone in their struggle. Even fashion bloggers have flaws and insecurities!
I think it's easy to assume that bloggers have perfect lives because we are so selective with what we post. It's so easy to retouch images (I do airbrush my skin in my outfit posts) and post pretty pictures on instagram etc. but those pictures don't always show that perhaps you've had a really bad day, you've lost your phone, you've just been through a breakup or anything unpleasant. I want to let you all know now that I am a perfect example of that! I have bad days. I cry. I get stressed and upset. Not everything goes to plan. My life isn't perfect - and although I am very blessed - it really is up and down.
So, thank you again. Thank you to all of my family, friends, my readers from across the globe and everyone who has ever left a comment on Avenue Maria. You are all wonderful humans and I love you all and I am so glad that some of you found that post helpful. That's exactly why I did it.
P.S: What do you think of this Spring-y outfit?! I plan on wearing it to the food festival this weekend - eep, so excited for sunshine and warm breezes!
