Branding: Floral Dress - Pish to Posh

Branding: Floral Dress

Surprise!! A Monday post!  Floral Dress and Branding!!

Over the last several weeks I have been working on figuring out how blogging fits into my Denver life. To recap- 3 years ago I quit my job as a teacher because my son needed me at home with him, then we moved to London, I started Pish to Posh (in London) after craving something for myself, we moved back home and now I am blogging in Denver.  So… like any brand I am learning what is successful, learning where I need to grow and learning how to survive.  Being in Denver has offered some amazing support and I have met so many wonderful ladies!!  I have also had some opportunities come my way that I otherwise would not have…. But I am still branding myself (and not with a hot prod iron).  Each day I am figuring out how to rejoin a life, here in Denver, that did not exist before I moved is challenging.  When I started Pish to Posh I had a steep learning curve but felt I had accomplished a lot by the time we got ready to move.  Now here in Denver I am, again, facing a steep learning curve… learning how to come back to a life that I never had.  So, I have physically returned to a place but the landscape looks completely different.

If we think about branding as self-growth we all start somewhere and then we grow… or don’t.  I am determined to be the girl who grows both in my Pish to Posh brand and in myself.  I never want to be stagnant. I never want to be just “good enough”.  But I am also aware and continuing to learn the sacrifices one must make in order to grow.  How high of a price is too high- both in my branding, so monetarily and in my self-growth, so emotionally??  A few friendships have been lost but I have gained so many more.  Some dollars have be spent but I am beginning to see the light (albeit dim).

In this post I want to introduce you to a new online boutique I have fallen in LOVE with!  Everly Oak offers such cute, stylish pieces at a great price (this post is not sponsored by them).  I was turned on to the brand through their Instagram and you should be following them if you are looking for unique, affordable, trendy pieces.  I loved this floral dress at fist sight and am so happy I purchased it.  The floral trend is so hot and I am eating it up!  I love this floral dress because it is light, comfortable and versatile. I wore it here with these lace up sandals but would absolutely pair it with flats sandals, booties, or even flip flops.  I love the unique tie neck and the overall fit of this floral dress.  These stacked heel lace up sandals are so comfortable and chasing  my toddler around I need this.  And if you follow me on Instagram you know I have some serious back problems and these do not hurt my back at all.  I paired this dress with this neutral structured bag but think a spring straw tote would be fabulous as well!!  Below I have linked a few other floral dresses as this exact one is only available through Everly Oak’s online store.

understanding moving along

I understand that in this journey to create a brand and an lilfe I am proud of I will encounter road blocks, I will face challenges and I will be let down.  But I hope that I continue to stay true to myself full knowing the sacrifices, consequences and outcomes may cause me some pain.  It is hard to create a brand without those things.  It is hard to act on self-growth without those things.  My morals, values and passions still stand at the root of my journey.  It is my hope to continue to surround myself with people who support me, with like-minded individuals and creating a brand I am proud of.

With Love,

    Rebranding is such a hard thing to do, I’m about to start it actually. I wish you all the luck that you find what you want!

      Krysten- I am hoping to really just continue to define my brand… I am still really learning what that truly means but I assume it is an ongoing thing!

    Thanks for sharing your story! I can totally relate on the journey of life and blogging, having undergone quite a few life changes in the last few years myself. How cool that we have our blogs to look back on and revisit the journey with later? (That’s at least how I like to look at it:P)

    • Reply pishtoposh April 26, 2017 at 4:04 pm

      Natassja- I never looked at it that way- as a progression of myself- thank you for that!!
