Hello! Today, I am celebrating four years of posts here on Fashion, Trends & More. When I started this blog back in July of 2010 at the young age of 14, I did not really have any expectations. Little did I know how many opportunities my blog would bring. It has provided me with the opportunity to interact with other like-minded people, work with numerous brands, be featured on major websites and in print and really express myself. 

4 years. 526 posts. 22 giveaways. 139,000 page views. 575 followers with GFC. 3,378 comments. Can you believe that? Because I sure can't! The past four years on Fashion, Trends & More have been absolutely wonderful and I'm sure that they will continue to be wonderful for years and years to come. This blog is my baby and I could never give it up. I will continue to fill this space with words, inspiration, DIYs and photographs.  Want more? Below are some of my best posts from the last four years. 

Fall Shoes (my first post!)
School-Boy Fall Look (one of the first times that I wrote about a trend)

Girls' Life Feature (the first time that I was featured by Girls' Life)
Weekend Glory (an example of how my photos began to improve over time)
Earthy Tones (and the leopard print obsession begins)
Godwin Prom Fashion Show (my first experience with a fashion show)

The Roaring 20's (one of my favorite decades)
Out to Eat (I felt so artsy in this outfit)
Nags Head (sharing photos from my trip to Nags Head)
Milkmaid (trying out a new hairstyle- blogging has pushed me to try out new things)
Snow White (these photos would later win me $300)
DIY Flower Crown (to be seen on my head frequently throughout 2012 and 2013)
Cat's Meow (one of my best outfits)
10 Back to School Essentials (a great reference for this upcoming school year!)

3 Ways to Style Black, High-Rise Shorts (black high-rise shorts = my fave shorts)
DIY Polka Dot Crop Top (one of my most loved DIY projects)
Graduation 2013 (marked a huge step in my life)
Celebrating 500 Posts (almost as exciting as celebrating 4 years!)
Coca Cola (photo shoot with my sis) 

And of course, I couldn't finish this post without writing a little bit more about my outfit. I started styling this outfit around a light green snakeskin print bandeau. In order for the print of the bandeau to be visible, I simply layered a sheer white blouse over top of it. I highlighted the green in the bandeau by accessorizing with round green specs and an oversize green clutch. I also accessorized with several golden rings and Chanel earrings. To keep the look from being too busy, I stuck with plain black shorts and black combat boots. Who says you can't wear combat boots in the summer? Believe it or not, they are essentially all that I have been wearing this summer! 

White sheer blouse: JCP
Snakeskin print bandeau: JCP
Black shorts: Vintage Levi's
Black combat boots: Target
Green oversize clutch: Vintage
Round sunglasses: c/o Giant Vintage
Temporary tattoo: Urban Outfitters (Now, I can cross another thing off my summer 2013 bucket list!)
Double finger spike ring: c/o Rings & Tings
Owl ring: Urban Outfitters
Faux diamond ring: Vintage
Earrings: Vintage Chanel
