If you saw my Instagram post, you’ve heard that I’ve decided to make 19 the year I start taking steps to making my blogging dreams a reality. While the majority of my goals for my 19th year are blogging related, I’ve got a handful of other things I’d like to accomplish. I complied a quick list of 19 things I want to do in my last year of being a teenager and to commemorate the occasion, did what any other fashion blogger would do and got some crazy gold balloons, put on one of my current favorite outfits, and strutted down the streets of NYC. Enjoy!

  1. Take more fashion risks- Girl you’ve got a cheetah print coat you barely wear, own it!!
  2. Get more involved on campus
  3. Blog weekly
  4. Find a workout routine and stick to it- Future roomies I’m recruiting you for help on this one!!Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset
  5. Have more girls nights and girls weekends
  6. Work on overcoming my shyness- even if it’s just raising my hand more in class.
  7. Stop being afraid to wear color
  8. Avoid chain restaurants as much as possible- there’s so many more places to try in Chicago
  9. Become more social media savvyProcessed with VSCO with hb2 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb2 preset
  10. Land a summer internship in NYC
  11. Have the world’s cutest apartment- recruiting you for help again Allison, Cami, and Kelsey!
  12. Explore more neighborhoods of ChicagoProcessed with VSCO with hb2 preset
  13. Grow XO, Kate Day’s following
  14. Try new, healthier foods- I’ve been getting better about not ordering chicken tenders when I go out to eat but now it’s time to start ordering some greens
  15. Up my confidence- aka release my inner Leo from time to time
  16. Find statement jewelry pieces Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset
  17. Find a skincare routine that works
  18. Fall in love with running again- this one is long overdue
  19. Make 19 the year of finding and doing what I love and sharing it on XO, Kate Day Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

And there are my 19 goals for my 19th year! Stick around to see how I accomplish them.

PS: posing with giant balloons on a windy day on a decently crowded city street is a lot harder than it looks. A special shout out to my mom for being the best momager/photographer/traffic director a girl could ask for and to my Aunt Mare for somehow getting those crazy balloons to not be upside-down and backwards in every picture!

  1. It’s so beautiful to watch you take life in both hands both on and off your laptop😊 You won’t remember me but your mum and I met at sing and dance group when you were just a bubba and we became great friends. We have used social media to stay in contact and bridge the gap between the US and Australia. Great to see you embracing it too so positively. Happy 19th Kate. Jill ❤🎈
