Finding My E-dentity

Head to Toe: Turtleneck, H&M // Vest, Buffalo Exchange // Jeans, Old Navy // Clutch, vintage // Shoes, Latigo

When I started this blog, going on five (blinks to confirm this is real life) years ago, I was in college and living at home with my parents. I wanted a fun outlet to share my sartorial pursuits, and it was easy enough to grab my mom or dad and walk somewhere nearby to snap a few photos or to set up my tripod somewhere nondescript. Though my style evolved, this format remained about the same for the next few years even after I graduated and started working full-time. I can proudly say that New England Romance helped me to nab more than one post-college job. It's a great conversation starter with haven't-seen-in-a-while Facebook friends, and my extended family treasures this medium of "seeing" me when we go months without face-to-face time.

That said, as "grown-up" life has gotten busier and busier, so have pressures of balancing a career and social life, making time for loved ones, and simply remembering to pay all of the bills—on time. Not to mention that for the past two months, my four-hour-a-day commute made it impossible to do pretty much anything. Now that I'm settled in the city with Sean, it's time to think about how this blog fits into my life...And I definitely want it to; the "blog-o-sphere" is a community I've loved being a part of. So, as I share the first outfit photos from my new rooftop in Brooklyn, does New England Romance still make sense? Do I buff out the blog with a new name/design, or does a New England girl's love story with fashion still apply? I think, for now, it stays, and I'll take a stab at posting more regularly and being a more active part of this community before I rethink the rest. But in the meantime, I am open to your advice! Fellow or former bloggers, how have your blogs evolved with your life changes?

  2. Love this outfit, especially the best! I think the name still works, NYC is still New England (in my mind at least, haha)
    The four hour commute was definitely a killer, so glad I don't have to do it anymore. And glad that you aren't either
