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

Plum + Polka Dots

plum-polka-dotsplum-polka-dotsplum-polka-dotsplum-polka-dotsplum-polka-dotsI have to admit it, there are some perks to fall. For instance, the weather this past weekend was just so beautiful. I actually enjoyed every minute and definitely took advantage of being outside with the warmer temps (more on my fall activities later this week). Another perk is that my fall crush color, burgundy, is dominating my wardrobe. Let’s just say that amor, love, is in the air with this plum + polka dot midi skirt from Maison Jules. I hope it stays this beautiful as long as possible and that my relationship with burgundy will continue to blossom.

Petaluma

petalumapetalumapetalumaIt was truly love at first site when I saw this Petaluma skirt at Anthropologie! I can go on and on about the fit, the texture, the length and how I feel in it, but I can just sum it up with one word – perfect. It’s everything I ever wanted in a midi skirt! Get ready to see a lot of it because there are so many ways I want to style it.

I wanted the skirt to be the focal point, so I kept the top, shoes and bag all basic gray. Paired with my go-to gray T-shirt that I’ve worn a million times (ok maybe half a million times) and playful accessories, I couldn’t help but smile all day when I wore this last week. It’s really funny that an article of clothing can brighten my mood at just the right time, but I’m glad that it worked magic on me. Have a wonderful week lovelies! Look at that, I’m still in a good mood! Seriously ladies get this skirt!
