Farewell from Lily: Stay Golden!

Hi, all. So this is my final post as a BP. blogger. I have had an absolutely amazing time this past year, seriously. Styling and writing new material every week was often challenging, but through the almost daily analysis of my taste I was able to soldidly construct my personal style, leaving me confident in both myself and my wardrobe.


I made this collage highlighting some of my favorite moments as a blogger, from Homecoming to Halloween to San Francisco and Milan. There were too many fab moments to fit onto a single poster!

Clare and Alyssa: Thank you so much for being so generally wonderful! I’ve loved reading all of your posts and getting to know you as friends. You’re brilliant.

To our new batch of bloggers and bloggettes Amber, Bella, Caroline and James: I wish you all the best! I can’t wait to see what you have to share. 🙂 (Don’t procrastinate on Sunday if you need a post in on Monday,  just FYI.) [Editor’s Note: Seriously. This is really good advice.]


I hope I’ve been able to introduce all of you readers to part of my personal style world, full of TSwift inspiration and Heathers references, DIY accessories and pleated skirts.

If I could leave you with one more piece of style advice, it’s this: Wear what makes you happy. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t on the cover of a magazine or lookbook. Translate yourself into your style and you’ll feel infinitely more confident and content. Allow your style to grow and change along with yourself. And always carry a scrunchie.

I love you all!

Stay golden!!

    I’m gonna miss your posts so much!!! You helped me go out of my comfort zone this year and try new things. I really loved you laid back but still amazing style. Also being a Washingtonian the clothes were suited for the weather and casual style here. Words can express how sad I was to read your post. If you ever want to collaborate on something I’m pretty good with a camera. My username on Instagram is @introverted_photographer21 . Sorry that’s the only social media I use. Throwback to your summer reading post I was ‘the reader’ when I checked back and saw that you replied I was surprised you couldn’t hear my screams in Olympia:P I wish you best of luck at college. I’ll miss u!
