FBFF: Blogger Gravity

Linkin' it up at Modly Chic today!

1. Since you began blogging do you notice a change in the types of things you gravitate towards while shopping?  Absolutely.  I never did a whole lot of remixing before I started blogging.  Now, when I'm shopping, I think, how many ways can I wear this?.  I also try to imagine how an item will look photographed, realizing that not everything translates well from real life to a picture.

2. Do you find, as a fashion blogger, that you dress differently from your family and friends? Do they comment on that?  Kinda-sorta.  Many of my friends are more fashionable than I am, so the way I dress is no biggie in my personal life.  I get the most comments at work where it's harder to blend in.  It used to make me somewhat shy and self-conscious, but I've learned to appreciate the acknowledgement.  'Fashion' applies to everyone (we all have to get dressed at some point) - even to those who aren't interested in it, and I love that what I wear often sparks fun conversation.

3. What’s the weirdest fashion that you secretly like, even if you aren’t bold enough to wear it?  Fanny packs!  Even wrote a post about it.  I really can't get over the convenience of it.  I've worn mine out a couple of times. 

4. Looking at current trends – what would you like to try but need to build up the courage to do?  Socks with open-toed shoes.  It's adorable on other people, but I haven't been able to get on board.  By the time I do, the trend will probably be O-U-T. 

5. Toot someone’s horn – what fashion blogger out there inspires you with her bold fashion choices?  As previously discussed with Erin....Beth at B. Jones Style pulls off the craziest stuff.  Like, how does she look amazing in these H&M jeans?  I tried them on and it was a mess!  Although my time for this amount of sauciness is long gone, I also enjoy seeing what Chloe at Urban Tease puts together. 

I'm gearin' up for one rowdy weekend!  See you back here Monday when giveaway winners will be announced!

I've never been much of a skirt girl. I grew up a tomboy and I wear jeans entirely too much. My grandma's friend had given her some skirts and I snagged a couple. They're a similar style to this one and I'm excited to wear them!! I've seen some great inspiration on fashion blogs !! Yours included.

Socks and open-toed shoes is a fun look. It's a bit tough to pull off, but I say go for it!

Yes by the time I find a socks/heels look I think I can pull off... it will be no longer acceptable haha

Definitely also remix a lot more since I started my blog. It's a great way to utilise what you already have in your wardrobe :) I love to stand out at work where everyone else is pretty tame.
