Hello Tastes Like Love readers!! I am Allison and I blog over at ShyScout - a quirky little lifestyle blog which covers my love for life, thrifting, design, fashion, travel, toy collecting, and just about everything else in between. I am beyond excited to be guest posting today on Tastes Like Love! Lovely Lauren came up with a fun idea for today's post - Now & Then - a mini glimpse at the present and past of her fellow blogger buds.
I suppose I should keep this chronological and start with the mini me photo. My "then" photo was taken around the time I graduated kindergarten. My 6ish year old self was a major diva (if you couldn't tell by the pose). I only wore dresses - the twirlier the better. My activities included endless hours or arts and crafts, ballet, and dressing up like my favorite princesses.
The present photo was taken for one of my Wardrobe Wednesday posts on the blog last week. While a lot has happened over the years, surprisingly my wardrobe is slowly reverting back to my 6 year old self (dresses fill the majority of my wardrobe and I still love any excuse to dress up). Thankfully(?) the diva-ness has taken a back seat - hence my blogs name "shy"scout. I have almost done a 360. If you were to meet me today I just might be the shiest person you have ever met. It is something I am working on though... I have also refined my arts and crafts skills and currently work as a graphic designer :]
& THE AWKWARD IN BETWEEN -
Moral of the story - dress in and do whatever makes you happy and you will feel so much more confident in your own shoes :] Thank you so much Lauren for having me on your blog today. It was fun to look back through old photos and laugh hysterically along the way. I suggest you all take some time to do the same. You just may be surprised at what you discover about yourself.
