I’ve been doing this blogging thing for a hot minute now. I mean I’m getting close to my 500th post. Crazy, right? Looking back at some of my early posts, I notice some changes in how I dress, and it’s mainly for the better. I pay more attention to how my clothes fit me and what proportions are more flattering – it’s hard not to when you have to look at pictures of yourself all the time. I also have gotten more adventurous and have tried things I thought weren’t my style. See? Good things.

But I’ve also noticed there’s something about style blogging – even for someone like me who takes a real life, practical approach – that makes you go overboard sometimes. I MUST WEAR ALL OF THE TRENDS. STATEMENT NECKLACES FOR EVERY OUTFIT. TWO PRINTS ARE BETTER THAN ONE.

Whoa. Slow your roll. It doesn’t have to be that complicated. I’m mainly talking to myself here, but feel free to take this under advisement yourself. Jeans and a button-up can still feel chic with a couple (just a couple) fun accessories. Oh, and bright lipstick – that’s one thing I’ve picked up since I started blogging that I am not letting go! It makes me feel fabulous and I don’t care what you say.

  1. I Love that outfit :). I also love your bright lipstick, I wish I had the confidence to wear bright lipstick, I don’t like people looking at my face haha!

  2. Perhaps you got the minimalistic inspiration from an undiscovered fashion icon in your own home…You’re welcome.

  3. lol you are so right. I have been noticing the same thing lately, especially when older posts pop in the You Might Like this section at the end of my posts. My style has definitely improved. But sometimes I just want to wear the same thing over and over. Stripe tee, jeans, sensible boots.

  4. I hear ya lady – blogging about my personal style has definitely introduced me to new trends in both good & bad ways, but seeing pictures of yourself in clothes will certainly change the way you look at yourself in clothes! Love the bright lip on you!
