Happy New Year!

And so the adventure begins…

New Years has always been kind of a sad holiday to me. Another year has come and gone, memories made, people get another year older,  and the unknown of a brand new year is upon us. This year, however, is an exception. When I think back on the year I’ve had…wow, I can’t even believe of what all has happened! 

One year ago today I was just a college student dreaming about starting my own business. In between classes, golf practice, workouts, group projects, homework, and balancing a social life, I managed to find time here and there to work on my designs, hunt for fabric, and create a brand that I always wished I had. I’m not going to lie, it was one of the most stressful and busy times in my life! But I would not have traded that time for anything. 

So instead of just telling you of what all has happened this year for me and “Sydney Elizabeth”, I have decided to just share my year in pictures. 

The trip that started it all! Last January I went to New York City with my best friend Hannah (left), mom, and dad to source all my fabric that would turn into my designs! I'm proud to say that 100% of my materials come from the USA.

First batch of prints...my mom always loved when I wore bright clothing on the golf course because I was "easy to see"! haha..She has been a big inspiration to me and always helps with the design process! Most of these sold out within the first month!

Official website launch day! I was so nervous the day the website launched but so thrilled by the response! I rushed home from class that day and immediately started to fill my orders!

Graduation Day! One of the biggest accomplishments in my life was graduating from Belmont University with a bachelors in Business Management surrounded by my family! Left to right: Dad, Abby, Me, Jordan, Claire Elizabeth, and Mom.

My tournament journey begins! I had literally so much fun going to different tournaments during the summer and popping up shop! I spent my whole life traveling and playing in tournaments, never thought I would still be going to sell my products!
