Three Year Anniversary of Someone Like You!

41 comments
 Hello everyone!!

Well, today is a very special day in my heart...it's Someone Like You's third anniversary!

I can still remember sitting down to write my first post in 2009 on my parent's desktop computer and typing my introduction over and over again because I didn't know what to say...and I remember how excited I was when I posted my first outfit; taken in my house wearing a leopard pencil skirt...Yikes! But I was so proud of that outfit and I'm still proud of that outfit. Because of that outfit I started something that would become a passion of mine, documenting my life, my style, and my journey. That one outfit helped me make hundreds of friends, reach out to girls all over the world, and meet incredible people in real life I would have never otherwise met. That one outfit helped me decided my major...what I want to do with the rest of my life. It changed everything.

I've come so far and I always put together a huge post for my blog anniversaries every year of old outfits past (see one and two). Even though it's a lot of work (it takes hours!) it makes me so emotional and proud of myself to see this journey I've been on...finding myself and style wise. I'm not the same girl I was last year or the year before or the year before that. I've grown so much and it's incredible to be able to look back, see it, and remember it.

As always, I love to do a little bit of statistics every year! :)

Thank you to everyone who has been on this tumultuous but irreplaceable journey with me whether you've been a reader for three years or just today...I couldn't do all of this without you guys. I am so blessed and thank God for each and every single one of you. Here's to another year of blogging! ♥ 

With much love, Lauren.

first off, congratulations on three years. It's so funny seeing those first couple pictures, you look so young! How cool it is to see you growing up in the photos. (It's really special that you started your blog at such an early point in your life, it's going to be really special for you one day to look back through your archives.)

Congratulations on your 3 year blog anniversary!! It's such an accomplishment and I appreciate the time you took putting all of your past looks on this post. It's so fun to see you "grow" from the beginning of the year to the end and I just see how beautiful you are. You are a vintage beauty! Have you ever done a tutorial on the eyeliner you wear? You make your eyes look so much like the women in the 60's and I love it. :) <3

It's great to see all of your outfits over the years! When I first started following, a little over a year ago, I went back and read ALL of your posts! You've grown up so much, starting out from a young girl and you've become a beautiful young woman! There's some really great ones on this post, some of my all time favorites for sure! Congrats on three years of blogging success!

LOL! Yeah, I can relate your first post! :) Although I don't still like mine, it was pretty hideous. Plus I wasn't even sure if anyone would EVER read my blog-it seemed to take forever to gain followers!
Such a fun post-love seeing the "style evolution"!

Wow. Lauren you always look so damm glamerous!
No one carries of the vintage look with such convincing style as you. I love how much range you have as well, fourties, fifties, sixties. You always look perfectly classy in them all. That picture of you in jeans near the start is a shock in all the skirts but you look dead cool in it as well.

Also I'm several years older than you but I've never managed to wear lipstick convincingly. Wish I knew how you do it!

So in conclusion congratulations!

I'm looking forward to what new things you do and wear in college.

Oh wow, it's amazing seeing how different you look! I think my blog is about the same age, but going back through old posts is just cringy on mine! Think I secretly have those all hidden now, shh. You look just as lovely in the first photo, as you do in the last :) keep it up sweet!
