Two

twotwotwotwotwotwotwotwotwotwoTwo. Wow! Today marks my second blogiversary, if you couldn’t tell. I’m definitely in awe of what HAMR has evolved into in just two years and am so happy and appreciative of all the love and support from my readers.

I started HAMR two years ago with a mindset of self-discovery and documenting my evolving style. It was also a creative outlet for both my sister, Eleni and I to share our creativity and to focus our attention away from our day jobs; plus, it gave us an excuse to hang out together since we didn’t live together anymore. Eleni (and my mom Angie, who make up Limani Designs) not only takes my photos, but she’s really my number one supporter and I’d be lost without her.

I can’t even begin to thank everybody else who has supported me and has been here for me. So many great opportunities have happened with HAMR over the last year and I’m still amazed by it all. I’ve also met a great network of bloggers this past year and have formed some great friendships.

If you asked me last year if I expected any of this, I would have said no. I’ve been growing side by side with HAMR these last couple of years and I’m really excited to see what’s next for us.

XOXO,
Peggy

Camouflage

Last week a reader asked me how I would wear an anorak jacket and make it look trendy. The unexpected combination of this faux leather dress and camouflage anorak jacket and my go-to mesh booties is my answer. It’s a perfect look for transitioning into fall and starting to create those all-so-important layers. Stay tuned to see how I style my anorak others ways throughout the season.

Jogging Around The City

Last weekend I was seriously jogging around the city. It was such a busy weekend and I had to be at different neighborhoods every day. I guess I wasn’t jogging, but running around instead. I attended all three days of Riot Fest amidst the rain, cold and massive amounts of mud all while trying to do work things and attending a blogger brunch with a few of my blogger buddies. Kit seriously was a great host and she even had quite the spread for a build your own avocado toast bar. I mean how could I pass on having brunch at one of my favorite food blogger’s places? Also, her place had this killer view of the city – the perfect backdrop for these photos. Thank goodness I wore my joggers because they were so comfortable and chic, if I do say so myself.
