The Evolution of a Blog

You know what's interesting?

The evolution of a blog.  That's what.

I consider The Mrs. & The Momma a personal style and lifestyle blog with a few other things mixed in...but my blogging hasn't always been that combination.  Years ago when I blogged privately, it was just about our family.  Now looking back, I wish I would have made it public then.  Then after my fourth child, I started the personal style part of it so that I could re-discover my own style, learn from others, and take risks...


But somewhere along the way over the past few months, I've posted a style-related post only about once a week...due to factors such as staying in my Pj's all day, husband not getting home from work in time for pictures, having other things to blog about, summertime, etc.  Blah, blah, blah...excuses.

BUT!  The whole reason I'm pointing this out is that when I sat down to write this blog post, I realized I had not only one, but TWO outfits to post this week!  My left hand got a big high five from my right when I discovered this recent anomaly.  I'm such an overachiever. (insert eye-roll here)

Yes, I still see experimenting with my style as one of my focuses of this here little blog, even if it doesn't translate in what I post everyday.

But let's be real....


Not everyday can I whip out my "I Dream of Jeannie" pants, right?

In related news, I'm attending the Texas Style Council blog conference this coming weekend and I'm super duper excited about it!  I attended last year for the first time and can't wait to see what bigger and better things they have planned (see my 5 take-aways from last year's HERE).  I plan to be tweeting and Instagramming the whole time, so you can follow along with all the fun!!!  Looking forward to seeing some of my blogger friends too....heeeeeey Shanna, Jenni, and Britt...see ya soon!

  1. My 3yo daughter loves to look at the computer with me. This morning when I was on your blog I told her that I like to look at your clothes because they are pretty. She said, "I'm looking at her necklace. I think it's pretty!" I agree. :)

  4. Great pairing with the green blouse and pink necklace! Since I started a blog I have developed a new appreciation for bloggers. The time and energy that go into one post is insane. That said, I think 1-2 outfit posts a week is great considering everything you've got going on. :)

  5. My blog has evolved as well. This month marks 1 year of blogging and it started as more of a style blog and took turn toward what my heart is truly about - health and fitness. Now that I'm pregnant it focuses slightly more toward that angle. I love that because its our space so we can do what we want!

  7. I think you do great as a fashion blogger even posting once a week! :) I read once that number of posts isn't the key to a successful blog (once it's rolling, that is), but consistency. And if once a week works for you, that's what counts. :)

    I looove your necklace. And I wish I had known the Texas Style Council, maybe I'll join y'all next year, I'm in Houston so it's just not going to happen but sounds great!

  9. Love the colors of this outfit! So pretty.
    I heard about Texas Style Council a little too late to attend last year. So I hopped on that train the minute they opened registration this year! I can't wait to meet you and all the other bloggers there. Just hopefully I won't be that girl taking way too many notes and pictures trying to document it all lol. :)
