Meet a Friend - Cara

It's Monday!! And you know what that means... another dull day at the office, right?  Wait, no!! That means it's time to meet another of my friends and today I'm introducing you to Cara of Cara's Closet!  Everyone, say hello to Cara!

(Awkward wave) Hi! You would think that after 3 years at Cara’s Closet, 2 years as a newspaper columnist and a number of years at another blog before that, I would be comfortable addressing countless computer screens with anonymous faces on the other side of them. Of course, I am having the exact same awkward writer’s block as I am trying to write the biographical blurb that is now apparently required for my 10 year high school reunion, and I went through a decade of school with those same people.

Cara’s Closet started as an opportunity to get out of my hoodies and jeans in a town that basically requires them. As I’ve moved, the purpose of my blog has, too. As I went through my Masters course work, it was a fun activity for my weary brain at the end of the day. As I wrote my thesis, it propelled me to get dressed – at least a couple days a week. Now that I’m working full-time, and floundering a bit with adjusting to this new phase in life, I’m using it as a way to explore who I am, outside of "student" or "copywriter" or any other job title I might pick up over the next short while (I seem to collect careers like I collect degrees – I think I’m at 3 of each, and I’m not even 30 yet).

So who am I? I could continue to list titles: wife, aunt, sister, daughter, knitter, armchair athlete, pseudo-nutritionist, but they don’t describe who I am, merely what I do. My posts let me showcase these activities, but mix in some personality along the way. The best way to find out who I am? Stop by my blog! 

I don’t claim to appeal to everyone, everyday of the week. And for that reason, I’ll let you in on the secret to my closet!

Mondays I discuss organization.

Tuesdays and Thursdays, I go back to my roots and post outfit pictures.

Wednesdays I discuss fitness and nutrition.

Fridays highlight projects I’ve completed.

And finally Saturdays are photographic reviews of my week.

Whether you want to find out how to organize all your video game system peripherals, hear me complain about the negative effects of working in a shoeless office on my wardrobe choices, discover how lazy I pretend not to be, get tangential reviews of books I’ve read, look at over-processed photos of random small city haunts, or wander with me on my journey of self-discovery, feel free to join me at Cara’s Closet!

Ooh, I ccould always use a few tips on organization!! ;)  And how cute is that top she's wearing with those adorable cowboy boots??  If you agree OR you just need something to do this fine Monday morning, go visit Cara's Closet and say make a new friend! =)

Love it when people start blogs for the purpose of making their lives better. I am liking Cara's Closet already. Does this girl know how to dress chic or what?
