Have you ever bought a dress that was absolute PERFECTION, and wondered How in the world am I going to wear this more than one way?! OR How am I going to get my money out of this piece? Well, that’s what I thought when I bought this marvelous dress in my school colors *wink* It was a little spontaneous; however, it was totally worth it because when I got it home…I started to style it three ways *wink* Accessories really do make ALL the difference!
So, for this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday, I am going to show y’all three ways to wear a fabulous blue and white frock. Take a look at the outfits below + enjoy the fabulous pictures taken by my awesome hobby-photographer dad *hugs*
Oh, my my my! I can hardly believe it–2015 is almost over, and we are all getting ready to ring in 2016! Goodness gracious! It feels like just yesterday we were watching the ball drop for 2015! Hmm…I guess the old cliche is true–time really does fly when you’re having fun! *wink*
2015 has been an awesome year–one for the books! The year has been jam-packed with lots of awesome things (and some not-so-awesome things) that have helped fill the pages of my imaginary scrapbook *wink* From interviewing The Beekman Boys and John & Whitney Spinks to getting accepted (with a transfer scholarship) to Emory & Henry College, I am excited to say that 2015 has been a good year on and off the VIP blog!
Sure–there are always hiccups and bumps in the road, but it’s important not to dwell on the negatives because, after all, it is (almost) a new year! We have new and exciting and positively wonderful things to look forward to, and we don’t need to focus on the not-so-great things like unfortunate fender benders, slacking on social media promotions, and how the weather is like a guy in a Katy Perry song *cue Hot n Cold*
Now, to ring in the brand new year, what do y’all say we review the most popular and most fabulous VIP posts of 2015?! DJ–hit the music *wink*
In addition to some awesome blog posts + interviews, I had the opportunity to interview Tracie Potts from NBC on my college’s student-produced television series Direction: Northeast. (I did several more of these interviews, but they are not avaliable on YouTube yet…So y’all will just have to wait to watch until 2016 *wink*)
As mentioned earlier in this re-cap blog post, I was also admitted into Emory & Henry College for my junior year! Goodness–I can’t believe that I will be graduating with my Associate of Science Degree in Broadcasting in May from Northeast State Community College! *happy dance*
AND LAST but definitely not least, in 2015 I started a new creative journey by hand-making bracelets and selling them on Etsy! Please give my shop BlueGrits a view or two and shop around :) Click the banner to shop.
Now, I will say good-bye until next year *wink* I hope all of you have a fabulously fun and safe New Years celebration! :)
I hope y’all are having a fabulous Friday because I have some very FABULOUS and EXCITING news to share with y’all! *girly scream* AH!!!!
Recently, I applied to Emory & Henry College, a private liberal arts college located in Emory, Virginia. This was not in my plans when I first moved to Northeast Tennessee a little over a year ago, and this definitely was not in my plans when I was in high school. So, needless to say, this collegiate journey has been a little bit stressful and ever-changing. BUT like anything good–it has all been worth it because today, I received my acceptance letter in the mail. My mom and I both screamed *wink*
As if getting accepted to Emory & Henry wasn’t enough excitement, I was also awarded the Patrick Henry Scholarship for my achievements. *happy dance* Somebody pinch me–I can’t believe any of this is real *wink*
I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this amazing opportunity to expand my education. I am also BEYOND thankful for amazing readers, fans and supporters like you guys. There is no way that I could be where I am today without the amazing support I have received from y’all, and I don’t know how I could ever thank you all enough.
Thank you, readers, for supporting little 16 year old me almost four years ago. I bet that Abby never would have imagined VIP would be what it is today, and that she would be pursuing a broadcasting career. :)
