The one thing that I have learned about blogging, and life really, is how everyone is inspired in different ways, by different people and look at things completely opposite (for the most part) than me. I am actually used to not seeing eye to eye on things with the majority of people. I will blame it on my up bringing but I will NEVER apologize for it. I bring this up because I think it gives you a little insight to me. I am drawn to edgier, out there, push the envelope "fashion" bloggers. I LOVE seeing their creative minds at work, even though I could not pull off 97% of what they wear. I am also drawn to some incredible "personal style" bloggers (my blog is a personal style blog and not a fashion blog) and learn so much from them. I used to read a lot of lifestyle blogs, mommy blogs, family blogs as well and find that I just don't get anything out of them anymore. So I have stopped reading most of them on a regular basis but do stop by from time to time. I love a challenge and am always trying to learn and grow as a person, in my style and in life. I have learned to do what is best for me.
Many times when I am getting dressed I have a certain blogger in mind. Today's outfit reminds me SO much of my dear blogger friend, Megan of The Frugalista Diaries. She is a blogger that tries new things while having a a true sense of self style. I love that she ALWAYS wears heels and her layering abilities 'wow' me. She has been rocking the shorts, heels and over sized top look a lot...and I dig it. I love this one, this one AND this one. These looks inspired me to put this look together.
I knocked out two trends with one stone. What! What!
A little tangerine tango and floral print.
I bought these shorts last year and I am so excited that they are still in and that I get another year's wear out of them. This is my new Stylemint top, it is made out of sweatshirt material and I am seriously in love with it. Since the outfit was so bright I knew I needed a neutral shoe that complemented but didn't compete, yet still stood out. My Shoemint 'Chloe's' were the obvious choice. I am pretty much obsessed with my Kate Spade 'Gumdrop' earrings. I paired them with a more subdued coral necklace and a lilac ring. I felt sassy all day!!
This was a wordy one...thanks for making it to the pics ;)
