A Super, Duper Exciting Announcement!!!

Today I absolutely could not be more overjoyed to share something with all of you that I have been keeping to myself which, if you know me, is pretty hard for me to do. Today marks my final day as a designer for Abercrombie and Fitch and I will now be pursuing Something Swell full time. While this decision is exhilarating and terrifying all in one, it is something that I know I need to do for myself. I have always been the kind of person who makes decisions based on the most pragmatic and safe route – deciding to go to a four year art college, taking every internship I could get my hands on, taking the highest paying job offer I got the week of graduation – however these choices have left little room for personal growth. When I started this blog, it was entirely for me. It was my outlet. My place to share what is important to me and it became apparent relatively early on that these topics were important to a lot of my readers as well. As this blog has grown I have been filled with nothing but joy and excitement, a feeling unrivaled by anything I have ever achieved at my professional workplace.

I have planned a much more in depth post where I will share the events leading up to this decision, a little sneak preview into what it is like to work in an environment that is hypocritical to your beliefs (i.e. working for a fast fashion company while your dream is to be a sustainability blogger), as well as my thoughts on making a decision entirely for myself.
I also wanted to issue a full-blown thank you of gigantic proportions to all of my dear family and friends who put up with incessant teeter-tottering when deciding to make this leap and gave me all the love and support a girl could ever imagine. This is a huge moment for me and I could not be more grateful to have such a great support group to share it with! I am so freaking excited to be starting a new chapter and seeing where the road ahead takes me, and I just hope that you will tag along for the ride!
xx Annie
