It's My Blogiversary + Mahogany Closet Mondays Fashion Link Up

If you read my first post, then you know the inspiration for me finally starting this blog was the death of my mom last August. One of the biggest lessons her sudden passing taught me is that we are not promised tomorrow and the perfect time to go after your dreams and start working towards accomplishing your goals is NOW. I only wish she was able to see it  because I know she would be so proud and love it. I thought the best way to celebrate is with a recap of some of my favorite outfits of the last six months. If you click on any of the pictures it will link to the original post. What's your favorite outfit? I would love to hear what you think!

Mahogany Closet Mondays Fashion Link-Up

I'm super excited to be hosting this link up. This link up is meant to be a way for bloggers to share their person style, connect with other bloggers, and gain new followers. Bloggers can submit a link to one of their fashion posts using the Inlinkz widget below. I will share a couple of my favorites on social media and in a blog post. Link up will open on Monday and remain open throughout the week.

Featured Fashionistas from last week's link up...

 Fashion and Cookies is one of my favorite blogs. I love the way Vale puts together outfits. Her style is amazing. This is mixing prints at it's best. I don't know if I would have ever thought to put these two prints together, but they look absolutely fabulous together. If you haven't check out her blog yet, you really should!
This dress is so gorgeous! The colors are beautiful and and it fits Moumous perfectly. And it was just recently her birthday so make sure you stop by and wish her a happy birthday!

I want to thank everyone who linked up last week and can't wait to see your outfits for this week!!

For this week, post your favorite outfit post of the week.
