I often get asked what Fabulously Average means. When I first started blogging [back in May of 2011] my husband wondered the same thing. He asked,“Are you calling yourself average? Or are you calling yourself fabulous?” I looked at him and said both. My blog name is a shout out to all the ladies out there that have average lives but live them fabulously. We all have that fabulously average friend, you know the one I’m talking about. It’s the girl in the Starbucks line that exudes confidence and style, although her entire outfit was purchased at the Target, or the woman in your office that sports a lace skirt with a flannel shirt and pulls it off effortlessly. She might not have the funds to buy the good stuff but she finds a way to work with what she’s got.
Note, I’m not trying to discredit the girls that can afford the elite brand name clothing, more power to them! If you’ve got it, spend it! I know I would. I love brand names as much as the next gal but I don’t live that lifestyle nor do I wish to pretend I do. Trust me, the fella wouldn’t allow it. That’s the intent of this blog, I want to showcase the fabulously average life each and everyone one of us live by making smart, affordable choices. You don’t need to break the bank to look good.
And that, ladies and gentleman, is Fabulously Average!
