IFB Link Love

Fun news today! A Sarah’s Real Life post was featured (for the second time…humble brag) on Independent Fashion Bloggers Links à la Mode this week. Bloggers submit links every week, and IFB looks at all of them and picks 20 to feature. Part of the fun is that all 20 bloggers post the roundup so all of our readers can maybe discover some new blogs.

So if you have a few spare minutes, click through to some of these other posts! I mean, if they were good enough to be featured with the likes of moi, they can’t be half bad, right?


Always Be Prepared

It may well be the Scout Motto, but any good fashionista knows that preparation is the key to impeccable style. Whether it be DIYing the latest fashion trends, beautifying yourself, finding the best deals, studying up on classic prints, or getting everything ready for the oncoming season, for most of us it actually takes a lot of effort to carry of that effortless chic. This week’s roundup has almost everything you need to get your summer preparation going so you can have a wonderfully chic season!

Links à la Mode: May 30th

Take One, Pass it On: Week 1

You guys. I completed the first week of Take One, Pass it On with flying colors! Well…there were a lot of colors, but not a lot of flying. But one out of two ain’t bad. The first couple days were a bit of a struggle, but by the end of the week it got easier and pretty fun. I’m looking forward to the rest of the month.

Check out the first 7 outfits, lined up all nice and pretty with nifty labels so your brain doesn’t have to work so hard (it’s Saturday, after all):

I’ve been blown away by the response to my remix idea (I mean knew it was awesome; I just didn’t know if other people were cool enough to recognize my genius). Here are a few other bloggers that are playing along already. I’m sure there will be more of you in the coming weeks!

Delusions of Grandeur

Happy Thursday, folks. Today Sarah’s Real Life is featured on the blog of a fellow petite and broke graduate student, Bonnie. Her blog is called Delusions of Grandeur, and she runs a series called Academically Inclined where she features stylish women of academia. That’s where I come in.

Take a moment to stop by Bonnie’s blog and see a round-up of a few of my favorite recent outfits, and of course see what else Bonnie has to offer (she’s adorable and I’m jealous of her hair).
