Cross My Heart…


Skirts of Urban will be turning 3 years old in a couple of months, and it’s so cool to see the growth and the potential growth. Obviously I love fashion, shopping, and dressing for me. But, my blog can be so much more than that. My life is changing, I’m growing not only as a person but spiritually, and life has it’s waves. I don’t ever want to put my blog in a box and tell it to stay like that forever. I want it to grow alongside me, and not be confined.

I’ve always promised to stay true to myself throughout my journey, but you have to find yourself before you can be true to yourself. Every day I find something new about myself that I either love or hate, and I either instill the good things or rid of the bad.

Why I am saying all of this is to tell you guys that having this platform to reach people means so much to me. Sometimes it’s not even the point of posting outfits, it’s the outreach. Who knows what all of this is for, I just believe this blog can be a place for growth and inspiration and a place you all love spending time at. And I cross my heart, it’ll always be the same Laura.

I’d love your feedback–if there’s certain posts or topics you’d like me to talk about, let me know below in the comments!


On another note, I bought another blouse that has lace-up detailing. I have a love-hate relationship with this trend. Every top I’ve gotten with this detailing just doesn’t fit me right, the strings always come undone and it’s just too much, if you feel me. I just picked up this top from Old Navy and decided to try this trend one more time. This top isn’t try hard with the lace up trend and the stripes keep it casual. The light linen-y fabric is light and easy, and perfect for heading into the spring! I paired the casual top with edgy faux-leather trousers and my newest obsession: slide-on mules…where have they been my whole life?! This will definitely be a go-to transitional look for me heading into the easy breezy warmer months.
