As the French Say 'Au Revoir'

So it's been a while since I've updated this little corner of the internet, hasn't it? Last summer I found myself falling out of love with blogging. To this day I don't really know what caused it but I just felt uninspired and unmotivated - I didn't even really feel like reading blogs. So I just stopped pushing myself to blog, and then I had some personal issues come up that put me in a fairly dark place in my life where I was struggling with self esteem, body image and loving myself - among other things. Long story short I just never came back to this blog.

I'll always love Beautifully Pure and what this blog was to me for the three years I updated it, but it just isn't who I am anymore. I started this blog as a modesty fashion blog when I was a sophomore in high school, but I've been through so much since I started this blog. When I started it I was trying so hard to be one of the "cool kids," but since then I've become comfortable in my own skin and who I am. Beautifully Pure just doesn't fit me and my life anymore.

So earlier this year I started a new blog that I've been quietly blogging away at. I don't post as often as I'd like to, but I'm making an effort to post more often.

It's called That Katie Girl - after a line from Anne of Green Gables (since Anne Shirley is pretty much my spirit animal). Disclaimer, though: That Katie Girl isn't a fashion blog or a lifestyle blog. I'm going to continue featuring my "what I wore" posts, but mostly it's just going to be whatever I feel like posting at any given time. I'm going to post about my new life living outside of my parents house for the first time, the awkwardness of becoming an adult, and whatever else is going on my life.

I really appreciate everyone who's followed along with this blog the last 3 years, and I hope that you'll continue to keep up with my adventures on That Katie Girl. If you do leave me a comment and let me know - I'd love to hear from you!
