Nineteen Forever?

These days I have found myself caught up between wanting to hold on to the past, and wanting to hurry and "grow up" already.  In the back of my mind I still feel like I will be a teenager forever. Obviously I know that this isn't true, but as I shuffle closer and closer to the edge of adulthood, the realization that my protective shelter won't be there forever, has really hit me hard lately. I know that my anxiety issues contribute significantly to the feelings of sheer terror that I sometimes get, but everything about life has just felt so real lately.

New Year, New Body

I apologize for my somewhat large absence from the blog as of late. I have really been focusing on getting my fitness and school ducks in a row before I focus on my blog. However, I am finally in the swing of things and able to refocus on Progression by Design again! Speaking of fitness, I have finally gotten motivation to work out!

I had the pleasure of styling the Evening of Extravagance Dress for the campaign, and had a great time doing so!

I have a thing for little swing coats and I am just dying to add this one to my collection! I then added an adorable pair of Mary Jane style heels. I chose to include both a   nude and black pair to show the versatility of these heels. I tend to love the statement behind an all black look, but the nude pair would look gorgeous…
