Good morning and welcome to the new face of Whitney à la mode!
For several months I've been itching to update the look of my blog. For almost three years I've been using one of Blogger's templates, which I've enjoyed, but I was ready for my own personal look! While I'm still a small blog, I'm really proud of how far my little corner of the internet has come and a fresh face is the perfect way to celebrate! I budgeted and saved so that I could treat myself to an original blog design.
I worked with Angel from Sky and Stars as recommended by my blogging buddy Alex of Undergraduate Style. Angel was really fun and easy to work with. I started by filling out a questionnaire about my design desires. I also provided a Pinterest inspiration board that includes the photos you see in this post plus a few others. I wanted a simple and clean look with a feminine, fun and whimsical color scheme.
Angel created an original mock-up from which we communicated back and forth until my design looked just the way I wanted! Having never done this before, I was nervous about being too picky and demanding but Angel was very gracious in working through the little details with me. There are still a few kinks to work out but we are almost there!
I'm really happy with the new look of Whitney à la mode and I'm feeling reenergized to work hard to make this space something that is fun and that I'm really proud of. Thanks for following along so far and I'm excited for you to continue being a part of this style journey with me!

I'm loving Lee's simple look from Legallee Blonde this week. I'm thinking I would like to add a shirtsleeved or sleeveless chambray dress to my closet this spring. Do you have one that you love?
