One year ago today, I published my first blog post on Kitties + Couture. In celebration of my first birthday, I’m featuring my latest outfit with my new tropical cupcake skirt! Yum! :)

I can’t believe how quickly this last year has gone by and just how much my little corner on the Internet has brought into my life. I’m still shocked about the entire experience and the fact that it’s not just my family and close friends looking and commenting on my blog posts anymore, but people from everywhere across the country and even overseas in countries like Sweden, Brazil, Canada, London, Germany and many more. I’ve met some of the sweetest people in real life, too! The San Francisco blogging community welcomed me with open arms and I love each and every single one of them for supporting and inspiring me to keep blogging day-in and day-out and finding my own voice and style.

Thinking about all of this and how much I’ve accomplished really makes the late nights all so worth it. Thank YOU for going through this experience with me and continuing to support Kitties + Couture. Can’t wait to share another year of fashion with you!
