Fashion allows us to celebrate who we are everyday, and this summer is one of the greatest celebrations for me. This outfit is just the start of summer and my celebration of graduating from UC Davis after 7 years (with a B.S. in Landscape Architecture) and a celebration for the amazing life that awaits me!

After taking a hiatus for the past few weeks (sorry I have not been posting), I am rested and ready to continue on my story – and this blog is one of the many important chapters in my life. I started this blog to help bring some creativity in my day, but it has become so much more than just a creative outlet. It has become a passion, a part of me, and to let modest women and girls remember that we too have a place in the fashion world. I have met many new people and have forged wonderful friendships from this blog, and from the love and encouragement from so many Blackbows’ readers I have gained a new level of confidence and self worth.
As a thank you, for all the support and love I am doing a giveaway! The giveaway is a $30.00 (US) giftcard to the winners favorite clothing store! As I mentioned earlier, fashion is an expression and celebration of us, and just like so many have believed in me, I believe in you, and want you to celebrate with me!
(There are some simple rules so please see the end of the blog so you dont miss out!)
Above are my two favorite pieces for summer so far. My Zara hot pink sandals and my Willis Bag from Coach. Willis (as I call my bag) and I already have an amazing summer planned. Long walks on the beach, shopping, and site seeing. You will be seeing a lot of him in the next few post!
Thank you again to everyone who has been following Blackbows but most importantly, for you support and encouragement. It means the world to me, and I hope you all continue with me on this journey.
Have a great summer, remember and celebrate you, and until next time…
