Favorite Posts of 2014

Hi, friends.... I was almost afraid to take a look back to the year-in-full of 2014 because it was a year of uncertainty for me. I moved to New York City by myself in 2013 and after I moved back I was devastated. I felt like I had failed and people kept asking me why I left New York City. I felt a lack of response on my end- I had little direction as where to go next. I had little motivation to make that next step. I started working at an antique shop called Rebecca's Antiques Where I grew to know Rebecca Steiner. I eventually got an internship this year with the Goodman Theatre so I moved to Chicago to live with my best friend Lauren Blakeman. I got my own studio and a full time job after the paid internship ended and here I am now. Looking back on 2014 wasn't as bad as I expected- I actually did a lot this year, too. I hope your life is happy wherever you are. Thank you for being here and reading these words. Happy 2015! Here are some of my favorite posts of mine in 2014:
love, polly

You're beautiful! I too am thinking of leaving NYC. I've been here nearly 5 years and I'm thinking of going back to Tx to be near my best friend and family. It's such a hard decision, but you have to do what's best for yourself.

So many beautiful and colorful outfits this year Polly! I think the first is my favorite but I love them all. So happy you found your footing and are happily situated in Chicago, I myself feel like I will be floundering around forever haha!
Happy New Year!
Cheers,
Hannah

Man, you've had some beautiful outfits! And besides that, you have your own studio now, which is something I definitely dream of. Seriously, I'm so happy for you! Keep on working hard!! :D

I adore the post 'Sweet Jane', it sounds ridiculous but I've had that outfit in my head since you posted it and I could never seem to find the post again! It is one of my favourites I think I've ever seen, with no exaggeration
I hope 2015 is wonderful for you, goodness you deserve it!
