If you’ve been following me for a while, you might know that I was the most single of Sallys back when I was living in D.C. I would joke about my disastrous Tinder dates and flops on Bumble. I tried matchmakers, joined a Kickball team in hopes of meeting more people, and put myself out there. And guess what? Despite a countless number of first dates and a handful of second dates, I never found Mr. Right and lived a single life. Of course, as soon as I was gearing up to leave D.C. is when I met my current boyfriend.
At the time, I was frustrated that no matter what I did, I couldn’t land myself a boyfriend. After all, I was a serial dater in college: I think I only spent 3/4 of a year in undergrad single (oh — and I had to do five years of college too because I transferred schools and switched my major!) However, even though I lived a single life for 4 years, I think that was the best thing that could have happened to me while I was living in D.C. Here’s why.
This post is long overdue, and it’s one that I’ve been nervous to publish.
I’ve loved fashion ever since I could remember. When I was three years old, my mom went to Hecht’s without me (do you remember that store? What a throwback!) and I gave her side eye. Sorry, mom. I made clothes for my barbies with cut up fabric. My game of choice growing up was playing dress up in my mom’s old gowns. And of course, I launched my very own fashion blog back when I was in college.I loved every single thing about fashion.
I’m sharing MiO in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I had another post planned to go live today, but with everything that’s been going on, it feels kind of silly to talk about material things at the moment. I’ll be back to the regularly scheduled fashion and travel posts tomorrow, but I hope that you’ll consider donating to one of these organizations that are providing relief to Hurricane Harvey victims.
