May 2014 in Review

Monday, June 2, 2014

May started out still in winter and was filled with changes that bloomed into a summer of a possibilities!

Outfits that Changed Me
never fully dressed, withoutastyle, hell bunny, popbasic, shabby apple, skirts, floral, leather, gingham, wyoming,

Movies to Change You
Take a look back at the nineteen fifties with these two classic gems- Daddy Longlegs and S unset Boulevard. Then fast-forward a decade to get some 60s mod fashion with Audrey Hepburn in How to Steal a Million. 

Mail to Change You
This month, we talked about how to write a letter of complaint, shared what was in a tea subscription box from Tea Sparrow, and dreamed about these out of the world stationary items.

Plans That Changed Me
May brought about a lot of exciting opportunities for Never Fully Dressed- we sat down with Popbasic about their new, single item line, and also reviewed an eShakti dress as well.  Elsewhere on the internet, Bon Marche  interviewed me about blogging as a business.

It was a busy month in my personal life too! The Boy left for a week for work, so  I was soloing it with just the puppies for trusty sidekicks. Later, we got to have my sister over before she headed to work for the Sundance Film Institute's summer events. Spring finally came to Wyoming, followed in short order by Summer, so we celebrated with our first trip of the year to Yellowstone. Most exciting of all though, was getting to share with you that I got a  a new job as a Gifted and Talented teacher!

And, if you're in need of a dose of daily inspiration, don't forget to check this month's Q+A about mothers,  or our Dog Eared Page, Because of Winn Dixie, which is more dogged than others have been- get it?!

  2. It's interesting to hear you're following #yesallwomen on twitter. I was so angry and heart broken over the shooting that inspired it. It's obviously not something you see fashion bloggers talking about but the message behind the hashtag is incredibly powerful. Oh and I love the ballet dancer video. I've loved the skill involved ever since reading Noel Streatfield.

    1. I think a lot of bloggers, understandably, try to stick to certian topics to create a niche for themselves in the blogosphere, but often have other interests we don't always see with their blogging persona. But, I have the link list there specifically for things that interest me, no matter what it is :)

      Really though, I think it is something every woman- and, well, every man- should be reading.

      Totally agree with you- wish I could do ballet. These people are amazing!

  3. Woohoo! I'm glad it was such a good month. Sometimes putting things in a list like this makes you realize all the things you've accomplished--one of my favorite things about blogging.

    That article on Afghan Female Cyclists was a great read.

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed the cyclist article. Have you watched Wadjda? It is the first movie to come out of Saudi Arabia- ever. And it was directed by a woman and about women. It also involves a bike :) I think you would like it.

  4. love the floral and gingham skirts!! :D
