I always hear about these beautiful and fun stories of how fellow bloggers came up with or created their blog name and I always chuckle to myself when I think of the time I came up with Everyday Chiffon. It was about 2:15am on an October night in 2014 and I, being the insomniac that I am, was awake wedding planning, letting my mind run, and to be completely honest, truly just wanting to be asleep. To begin, I'm going to have us rewind back to when I originally created an Instagram page for my looks. When I started working in the corporate world (almost 5 years ago) I enjoyed putting together my new professional looks so much that I would randomly share selfies of my outfit (Yes, the amazing bathroom mirror kinda selfies... #noshame). A few of my girlfriends began telling me that I should think about creating a blog, so eventually I went onto Instagram and created a new "blog" page. The VERY first name of Everyday Chiffon wassss... Professionista365; I kind of cringe at it, but it is what it is. Fast forward 1 year later and there I am sitting awake in the middle of the night letting my head run while randomly taking peeks at a website that was in the very beginning stages of creation when, BOOM! Everyday Chiffon pops in my head. I wish I had more of a lead up to that, but I really don't.
Okay, there is a little bit more behind the name than just that. Chiffon, if you don't know, is a popular and beautiful fabric that is used in a variety of different clothing products and just so happens to be my favorite type of fabric... Not in like a weird way, but I just tend to go to those types of shirts or dresses when it comes to my every day looks. So when thinking of my blog, Everyday Chiffon is the view and mindset I have on a basic every day, chic and fun look 🙂 Now fast forward again, 1.5 years later and here I am, looking back on what has been the craziness and most unexpected adventure I've ever jumped into. I really had no idea what the blogging world was until about 8-10 months ago. It's not just cute clothes and adorable social media pictures, but an entire community of like-minded individuals all cheering on and supporting one another while enjoying fun events and collaborations with your favorite designers. It also is an entrepreneurial lifestyle so many people dream of. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of stress, anxiety and emotions that come with blogging, as well as a ton of late nights, nonstop work 7 days a week and the constant thought of there always being something else to do...The blogging world is amazing and I am beyond happy I'm a part of it. I will never stop pushing to be better and never allow myself to stop learning from others. Cheers to the future and thank you to all my sweet, amazing and beautiful followers for the continued love & support through this journey!
