New Adventures of Old Kéla: What New & Old for 2016

by Kéla Walker

Hey Kuties. Long time no see. Did ya miss me *cue Martin Payne voice* I totes missed you.  So much as has happened and developed since we last saw each other.  OMG where do I start? How about what’s new with old me?

First off, Happy New Year and all the good stuff. 2015 was super great.  I wrapped up the year with a lot of work and great opportunities but I can’t wait to make 2016 even better. It’s going to be so AmAZING- because we say so ( My Snapchat crew get that reference)  With a new year comes new goals and new things to accomplish.  With that said, I’ve been thinking a lot about Kéla’s Kloset.

For the past three years I’ve loved sharing my fashion and style insight with you kuties. But as of late the site has started to feel more like a chore more than the fun outlet I initially started. I have been the worse with updates and not that I don’t want to but because I’m just too tired.  With all the work I’ve been putting into my actual work and career, combined with life in general  I just haven’t had the energy to blog. Heck, I’m just getting around to posting these pictures which I snapped when winter felt like fall.  Don’t worry this isn’t one of those “I’m quitting blogging” post, so much as a heads up to changes I hope to put into practice.

For one I want to scale back on the #ootd post or at least the style in which I share them. (Nevermind the irony of me saying this amidst an #ootd post) Sometimes I just dont have anything to say in relation to an outfit.  I got other things on my mind as do you, I’m sure.  Often times I want to share personal information and experiences with you but never knew how they’ll fit that into a the vertical of style post.   Like, who wants to read any more?  No one, but despite all of that I’m going to start taking more chances, talking to you more. I think THIS post is a good example.

Notice how I didn’t talk about this look once in this post.  This is the direction I want to take the site. Less talk about what I’m wearing and more talk about life – personally and generally.  But since I did mention this look can I just say I LOVE IT.  This whole pair your dress with jeans and wear it as a shirt thing is my go-to style as of late.  LISTEN, I’m not going to completely omit talking about what I’m wearing and why I love a look but there will be less fluff and more substance.   I have a bunch of  great ideas for content which I want to kick off. Almost always I over think things which end up in a draft folder indefinitely. Well no more- I hope. (You know we’re all super aspirational the first couple weeks of a new year)  With that said,  in the next coming weeks month, I’m hoping to change the site and incorporate a different look and feel  (maybe a new name) and even bring in contributors to keep the content fresh and new.  Because it’s not just about what I wear per se so much as it is about YOU kuties and inspiring you with more than just fashion.

So this is where you come in.  I need to hear from you.  What do you want from the site?  What do you want from me?  What would you like to see more of or less of in this space? If you like the way its been going and just want more personal style photos -that’s fine, say so.  If you want to hear more about insight into career and other daily experiences, that cool too, say so.  Tweet me, instagram me, hell snapchat. Whatever your choice of communication is, let me know.  I want to hear from you.  At any rate I hope you’ll stick with me and be patient as I experiment and figure out the next stage of Kéla’s Kloset.  So again hit me up and let me know what you would like to see and read about here.  AND thank you, thank you THANK YOU for reading this and even caring enough to log on and see what new with lil ol’ me in the New Year.

Love You. MEAN IT
