Before I really started buying any clothes for fall, I started following a few fashion blogs. I ended up bookmarking a pile of them - around 20 I think. Over a couple of weeks I was able to pare down the list. While some were nice, the clothing did not fit my lifestyle. I lean toward being clueless about putting pieces together to make an outfit. The blogs gave me some much needed guidance.
One favorite is Jo-Lynne Shane. I found her clothing to be more of what the average person (at least the ones I know) would wear. I will add that my clothing budget is much lower than hers. I use her posts as inspiration. I loved the outfit from this post last fall. It looked classic, and the pieces are easy to find. I already had the pieces for this summer outfit in my closet. The top was a bit different but the idea was the same.
My other favorite is Grace & Beauty by Cyndi Spivey. She mixes fashion with a bit of scripture and encouragement. I particularly appreciate that she showcases modest clothing that is not frumpy. Again I tend to use her posts as inspiration. Her post on fall transitional pieces helped me see the utility jacket that was already in my closet in a different light.
Come back next Wednesday for Part 3 when I share some of the things I added to my wardrobe over the past few weeks. Until then, do you have any favorite fashion blogs to share?
