Wardrobe Wednesday - Saying Goodbye

Hello Lovelies - Today I have some big news




This is my last Wardrobe Wednesday hosting post!
I know, perhaps a bit of a shock...


I have loved having the privilege of hosting this linky. I have so enjoyed finding such a lot of new blogs to read and I have mostly enjoyed the glimpses into your worlds, the creativity with which you approach your wardrobe and your lives.




I have thought a lot about this - I want to be a woman who lives intentionally. I want to always have my ear tuned in to the still small whispers. I want to live in the right season and although I'm not entirely sure of the whys or hows I feel like this is the season to release the hosting privilege of Wardrobe Wednesday....



I am always going to love clothes and dressing up and wearing things in a way others wouldn't, but in order to hold onto my own peace and be ready for the mysteries around the corner I am letting go (if I am honest it has taken a little while to pry my fingers off the edges!)



I love and will continue to love reading other people's posts about clothes and I love that so many of you have blogs dedicated to looking your best (and not some super models best - applauding loudly!!).



I know a number of you are followers who follow along because of Wardrobe Wednesday and I really want to you feel like I won't be hurt or offended if you want to stop following because the other stuff I blog about isn't really fashion stuff :o)....(I'll still be sewing clothes though and joining in with wardrobe weds now and again though)


So with great pleasure and confidence I am handing this linky over to another lovely kiwi who I know will make you right at home... Hello Kelly! (I'm sure she'll send you an email reminder so you will be able to find her and change your button code next week)



I am planning to play along in the future but I am encouraging Kelly to make it her own just as I have done. We all have worthwhile things to say and I know she will too. Please show her the same kindness and encouragement you've shown me. Thank you SO much for joining in the Wardrobe Wednesday adventure with me - I.Have.Loved.It (really, really, really)



PS - last week I told you I had 48 dresses before I leave I wanted to say in my defence I have 5 pairs of pants:
2 jeans (both hand me down)
1 pair of trackies made out of polar fleece (self-made - a girl needs something for her snow trips!!)
2 pairs of shorts (also both hand me down)
and 1 pair of dress pants

How many do you have????

and just for fun I've just given you a whole lot of past clothes posts - so you really can see I do wear all.those.dresses!

Do link up and thank you so much for your delicious company I'll still enjoy sneaking in on your wardrobe posts along the way.

To a future filled with colour, self acceptance and celebration of the real us however we dress it :o)

Thanks so much Miriam for sharing this opportunity with me. I will miss your colourful outfits as often, but hope you'll be able to link up regularly. I think your weekly theme is brilliant and will definitely be continuing that along with the spirit of WW - inclusion, inspiration and invigoration!

Leonie said...

Good luck to Kelly! Will miss your regular posts on various creations and combinations! Always eye popping and gorgeous! PS I have two pairs of jeans, two shorts and one pair of trackies :)

Manda said...

Wow Miriam! I discovered WW here on your blog, YOU are why I joined in at first. And because of you and your super femme style I am so much more comfortable in dresses and playing around with my wardrobe than I was at the beginning! You have cured me of my jeans addiction. :) Thanks for being you, and all the energy you've put into WW. x

DC in STYLE said...

So sad to see you go but I can understand wanting to let go of some of the responsibilities that go along with hosting such an event every week.

I will be sure to pop around and say hi : )

I am very jealous of your amazing sewing skills.

Best,
Suzanne

Sorry to hear you are no longer hosting, just when I have found you but I am pleased you have passed the baton. Good luck with living in the moment.

Jessica said...

Awwww....this is my very first time to link up and now you are going away.:( It was great to see your favorite outfits, and I love your personality! Bravo to you for living intentionally.

It's all about what makes you happy. Blogging is a funny thing in general. Sometimes I love it and sometimes it sucks the life right out of me... I think it grows and changes just like we do and that's kind of the best part about it, along with the fantastic people you meet :)

I'm still following! I enjoy your blog. Sorry for posting a kid outfit this week-that's mostly what I make & what ends up on my blog. See ya around!

Amanda Cobb said...

Aw! I'll miss you as host, but it's understandable. Things all run their course eventually. I definitely hope to still see you around on the outfit link-ups!

Jen @ Librarian for Life and Style said...

I'll miss you as host -- such interesting, introspective style questions and musings!

Regarding trousers... I don't have as many pairs as I used to, probably because I'm getting more particular about fit. 5 pairs: grey, black, berry tweed, brown tweed, and dark beige.

Sarah Hulbert Style said...

Miriam, how bittersweet! I have so loved your sweet and nurturing style as you've lead the WW charge. I will still be following along. Keep up the stylish work, Lovely Lady!!! ~Sarah
