When I started styledbykyle.com it was so much fun. I loved every second of it, but over the past couple months it began to feel more and more like a job and for no other reason than the fact that I was putting enormous amounts of pressure on myself to make this into something that wasn’t possible in such a short amount of time. I was stressed out 24/7 for literally no reason. My Instagram stressed me out, this blog stressed me out, my other social medias stressed me out, all because I thought I wasn’t doing good enough work or trying hard enough. I was constantly analyzing everything I was doing so carefully to the point where it was driving me crazy, so I just had to take a break. I had to realign my priorities and figure out a way to keep up with this and my personal blog without letting them consume me so much that it caused me severe anxiety, and with that came the decision to not take a year off from school and make this blog my #2 priority. I had to turn these websites back into a hobby and something fun. I had to take the pressure to be perfect off of myself. I needed to get back into a casual mindset so that I don’t continue to spend hours at a time analyzing every little aspect of what I’m doing with my blogs, and now that I’ve come to these conclusions, I finally feel ready to move forward, which brings me to this post (which I should’ve posted a long time ago), Pink Priorities.
As did my last post, this look mostly came from Madewell (that store is dangerous guys). I couldn’t resist the thought of this dainty white tank paired with this chic wrap skirt (currently on MAJOR sale here), and having already snagged this tan shoe/handbag combo, I knew I already had a perfect look!

White is a color that looks good on everyone, and I knew when I saw this dress while stopping by Madewell, it would look great on my gorgeously tan friend, and what’s even better? This dress is on sale for $30 OFF (find here)!
A casual white sundress is awesome because so many things can be done with it. It can be worn casually with some sandals, dressed up with some heels, and any color shoe/handbag combo would look phenomenal, especially something bright like a red or a pink.

Sometimes a dress just isn’t enough all alone and needs a little somethin’ somethin’. That was the case with this pink faux-suede dress. As super cute as it is (find here), I knew it needed something else to make the look a little more unique and put together, and what better than a white puff sleeve shirt (find here) to add some much needed pink-break-up.
