Today is a very special day on this little ol’ blog of mine. Three years ago I hit publish on my very first blog post ever. It’s really fun to see how much I’ve grown, and also mildly embarrassed to see where I started. When I first started Middle of Somewhere, it was certainly just a hobby. It was a place to share affordable fashion with others, as well as my personal style as a tall and curvy woman. This is something I still strive to focus on. I’ve also had a lot of fun incorporating more beauty, motherhood, and lifestyle posts on here!
eShakti is a brand I have worked with since the beginning, so it felt fitting to include one of their pieces in my blogiversary post. A few weeks ago, I received this beautiful dress and immediately fell in love. I know I always say I’m not one to wear a lot of short dresses, but there’s just something about this embroidered dress that spoke to me. eShakti allows you to customize their pieces, which is my favorite thing about the company. I wound up getting a longer length in this one to accommodate my height. It hits right at the knee, which is ideal for me, and can totally be dressed up or down.
Today Megan from The Fashionista Momma and I are joined by Heather of My Life Well Loved for The Weekly Style Edit link up. Make sure to head to the bottom of the post to share your favorite outfit post with us! Megan and I also recently started a new Facebook group, a community for all women who love fashion as much as we do. We would love to have you join us there, as well as on our Pinterest board. It is the perfect place to get some outfit inspiration from some of the best bloggers around!
