A QUICK GET TO KNOW ME (& I'M FINALLY ON LIKETOKNOW.IT!)

CATEOGRY ARCHIVES: OUTFITS, LIFE

This past weekend did a takeover on The Local Perspective's Instagram stories, and had so much fun! I got to run around Nashville doing all my favorite Saturday-y things - like visit with friends, drink coffee, and eat brunch - while sharing it with TLP's followers. This same morning I was accepted to share my styles on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app! You can now shop my feed through the link https://www.liketoknow.it/irisdayton. What an AMAZING morning. I'm still figuring out how to navigate everything, so it may take me a little bit before I'm posting every outfit on there - bear with me! 

Now that I'm finally settled into Nashville and have been having more time to engage with followers and build a community, I wanted to share a little bit more about myself with everyone! Here are five things you may not know about me:

  1. I'm studying to become a Licensed Professional Counselor. No, I'm not trying to be a full-time blogger, and no, I don't necessarily want to be! I have a passion for addressing the mental health issue in our country (and world) and want to be an active part in that. My goal is to have my own private practice and work with the marriage and family population! 
  2. I have two adopted brothers from Haiti. They are the sweetest boys, and joined our family in 2009! They are a huge part of why I decided to become a counselor, and why I have a such a big heart!
  3. I really don't know a lot about fashion. I've never been the girl that knows everything about designer brands or has even cared about them! That being said, I do have a serious love for clothing, shopping, and expressing my personal style. I value top brands, because I can really tell the difference between something that is good quality vs bad quality. It's easy to be intimidated by bloggers who seem to know every last thing about designer brands, but that's just not me! I'm more of an Urban Outfitters, Zara and boutique gal. 
  4. I'm an introvert. I love people and I love making connections, but I'm not usually the first person in a crowd to say something or make a decision. I recharge alone, and get really overwhelmed with constant social stimulation. This is something I've been working on, and the blogging community has helped so much! 
  5. I live with my boyfriend, Zev. He doesn't show up too much on my feed, because it's hard to get quality photos when it's just the two of us. But he is so handsome, so sweet, and my best friend. Moving in together has been a crazy and challenging experience but we are having fun with it and making it work!

I hope this helped you get to know me a little better, and I'll probably do another one of these as time goes on. Happy hump day and I hope everyone has an amazing rest of the week!
