Style Speaks

Cardigan: GAP outlet (similar), Chambray: Old Navy, Skirt: Target, Shoes: Wilson's Leather (old, cute option)

The thing I love most about fashion is that your personal style speaks for you.  Just by looking at a person's wardrobe you can learn so much about them.  I love seeing the way a woman wears something compared to the way I might style the same piece.  I especially love when I come across a magazine or blog that "speaks" to me.  You know...the outfits you can see yourself wearing?

You know your style speaks when you are out shopping with someone and they say, "This looks like you."  You've defined your style.  For me, it's polka dots.  When my friends see polka dots, they think of me.  As I look at my next few outfit posts, I understand why.  I love polka dots.

I also love classic looks with trendy accents.  I like to look put together.  I love layers.  I prefer to wear wedges/boots to any other type of dress shoe.  I tend to gravitate toward jackets and blazers.  I like to mix vintage and new pieces.  I go back and forth between simple jewelry and statement pieces.
What speaks to you?








Here are some of my favorite blogs that I share a style profile with.  (Hopefully I don't offend them by saying that!)
Marionberry Style: I absolutely love this girl's style.  She mixes classics with pops of color and fun patterns.  I love that she keeps traditional outfits looking youthful.
Mix and Match Fashion: I love, love, love Tara's style.  Seriously, I feel like I could wear everything she has in her closet.  If only we lived next door and we could share clothes.  Not just that, she is a teacher, too.  Which just fills my heart with joy.  Absolutely love her pencil skirts, comfy dress shoes, and play with patterns.
Lynette Marie: I just found this sweet girl and I love how she is so open.  She has recently shed quite a bit of weight and shares her struggle with maintaining.  She is presh.


In typical Wednesday random fashion, I have to tell you all that I truly do want to invest more time into this bloggy space.  I swear March has just snuck up on me.  I also have to admit that I've been anxiously awaiting a blog makeover my sweet friend, Vanessa, gifted me after she won, but I'm beginning to think I may not be receiving that prize anymore.  (It was in November.)

So, I do have some goals for this space and I do have a list for the next few months:

  • purchase a DSLR camera and tripod (I realize my photos are poor quality.  I currently cannot help that because I don't have better equipment.  I promise it is in the works.  P.S. If you can make camera suggestions or are looking to sell your DSLR, get at me!)
  • update my look.  I realize its pretty plain and ordinary around these here parts which is something I strive not be evah!
  • add to my shop and enroll in some craft fairs.
  • do what I can to get my name out there and sponsor more of my favorite blogs.
I truly appreciate your readership/patience in the mean time!  You guys rock my little heart out.  I truly feel such joy in knowing you stick around.

  2. Aw, thanks for mentioning me in your post! I'm glad that all this soul-bearing I've been doing lately is not turning people off, ha! You're so sweet, girl.

    And as an "ex-photographer", I really suggest buying the cheapest DSLR body that you can and investing in a nice 50mm lens. That's what I use for most of my photos, and it's the best. My camera body is decent, maybe a $600-$700 body, but you can get them nowadays for $400 if you're just getting the body. Good photos come primarily by a good lens, not the biggest baddest camera out there! :)

  3. I'm with Lynette Marie....I had a regular DSLR for ages without the 50MM lens and the new lens made all the difference! I love that skirt so much....I have been drawn to polka dots lately (and stripes!)
