Breezy Days: Bonafied Blogger


January 20, 2012

Bonafied Blogger

If you couldn't already tell.
Yes, the ones I've been drooling over. 
For the longest time I've been very adverse to colored jeans, thinking they were only for those who loved the "Sean John" brand. Or for those who were mega artsy.
{Does playing the piano, singing, and being crafty considered artsy?! 
Meh. I'll never been an artsy hipster. Just of the nerdy artsy persuasion.}

 But now I'm head over heels for them and want them in every color possible.
{Ok, maybe not chartreuse. I will never get myself to like that color, no matter how many of my blog idols wear it. Nope nope nope, can't make me.}

I kinda feel like a pack of starburst, but when someone gives me a makes my day.
Are we in agreement? Ish?
So being a starburst makes not only my day, but possibly other people's day too? 
It's flawed logic, but I'm diggin' it.
 Jeans: American Eagle. Blouse: Anthropologie. Flats: Forever 21. 

And I finally have gotten the Sydney Poulton of The Daybook "bun" down!
Dare I say I'm becoming a bonafied blogger now??
Glasses: Vera Wang.

What I've learned since becoming a blogger:

Wearing an Audrey Hepburn/Carrie from Sex and the City inspired bun is not only stylish, but extremely easy to do on those greasy hair days where you haven't washed your hair for...holy crap, when WAS the last time I washed my hair?!
{Kidding people, kidding!}

Lipstick can pretty much make any outfit. If I'm wearing a regular t-shirt, jeans, flats combo, I add me some lipstick and BAM. Hotness.

Colored jeans, flowered jeans, ripped jeans, you name it, is always a cool/cheap/easy way to vamp up your wardrobe...and your compliment intake.

Pinterest. I really don't need to say anything else about that one.

Anyone with a bf/husband struggles to find that balance between blog obsession and time spent with the bf/husby. My secret now is that I wait till he is at work or sleeping. Shhhh! 

Everyone loves anything vintage. Vintage jewelry, clothes, shops, shoes, and so on. 

Blog ladies are thrifting junkies. 
Ok, maybe I'm the only skunk here who is not a complete huge fan of thrifting. It's already hard enough to find clothes that are my size and fit good. Trying to find something that not only: fits, is in good condition, and is actually CUTE seems impossible to me. But, blog ladies do it, they find freaking amazing things and make them look brand new. Where does that skill come from?!

And finally, everyone is so dang NICE. Followers aren't a competition, blog ladies are sweet and awesome! They are having just as much fun as you are, and I don't know about you but I love meeting new people with the same interests as myself! 

What have you learned since becoming a blogger?

Love your pink jeans! I too had been avoiding this trend but now I think the color jeans look adorable :)

I don't thirft much either, only accessories. When you're 4'10", it's hard to find new clothes that fit, let alone thirfted ones!
