Back to basics

Hi!

First of all I would like to acknowledge the fact that Call me Maddie today turns 2 years!! You can say that my blog is my baby and I can't believe it's has 2 years already! A lot has happened since 1st September of 2011, I have had many ups and downs in blog life as well as real life too. But I can say that this year, 2013, has definitely has been the most succesful one yet for my blog, my follower count has a tripled since December 2012, approximetely 4000 people visit Call me Maddie monthly, I have started collaborating with different brands, and being in blogosphere for 2 years I have finally started earning some profit out of it, not very much, but still money is money, right?
I still believe there are very exciting things to come and I definitely know that blogging is turning to be something more to me than just a hobby, it has become a very important part of my life and there is not a day that goes by, when my mind is not spinning and twirling of new post ideas, creating outfits in my head and just generally thinking of how to improve my blog persistently.

Second of all, today I have another outfit post prepared for you! And as you might know from my previous outfit posts here and here, I have been collaborating with a brand called Choies. And as for today, I want show you the last piece I got from them: a black and white striped pencil skirt. This is the first pencil skirt I have ever purchased and I really like it, because the skirt itself is very classy and goes perfectly with heels. It is made of very pleasent fabric that is also very stretchy, so you don't have to worry about the skirt being stiff and therefore really challenging to walk in!

  19. Apsveicu ar bloga jubileju! :) ļoti gaumīgs un smuks outfits, kaut gan es teiktu ka šis svārku modelis būtu drīzāk "pencil skirt" nevis "midi skirt" jo viņi tipiski iet pāri ceļiem. Patīk arī kā melnbaltais sakombinēts ar neon krāsas somiņu :)
