I want my blog focus to be on styling. Showing you the “how to” of creating an outfit, trying a trend, creating a perfect piece, and finding the ‘IT’ items of the season. That is why I have divided the space into 5 categories, each one fulfilling one of those needs, in the hopes that this site will be a place of inspiration to create your own style and help you curate your own wardrobe.
The main theme throughout my blog is style with affordability. I love fashion blogs, but I often get done with a post and go to “shop this outfit” only to find I can’t afford the items. Even with items less than $100 they are often at the upper end of the scale. And, well, choose two items at $80, and I’m already at $160…that’s $160 that I could be using to go out or travel with! Now that I’m out of work I am always looking to keep my options affordable and to save money. Therefore, most of my items that you’ll find on this blog are from affordable brands, sale items (that I will be sure let you know about), discount stores, or thrifted.
The site is divided into 5 categories of blogging posts:
What I Wore:
This space is where I will share my personal style, a.k.a. what I wore. I will explain my choices and why/how I curate my looks. At the bottom of each post you can get my look by shopping the links. BUT my hope is that you will use these looks for inspiration to help you curate your own perfect outfit. So I will also have a “topic” item in each post that will have it’s own shop carousel at the end. This will provide more variety for you to “get my look” in your own style!
Tips & Tricks:
I want this blog to be useful – more than just pictures of me in my clothing! I worked styling mannequins for years…and believe that has given me expert experience in styling. Each week I want to share some of my information. Whether it’s how to style a certain item, different ways to wear something, or a new style to try — I’ll share with you my expert knowledge!
I am a person who will do just about anything to save a buck. So a lot of my clothing is found in thrift stores, and through DIY projects I create those “IT” pieces of the season. In these posts I will share some easy projects; so you can save some money too. I am all about fashion but prefer it at an affordable cost.
Shop with Me:
Shopping made easy via yours truly. Each week I will share an item of the week – something I am currently shopping. I will provide 5 varying price/style options to shop from and each item will be presented on a style board (a fully curated outfit showing how I would wear the piece). Below each board you will be able to shop the looks! Let me help you build your wardrobe.
As I stated above this project was undertaken because I moved to Europe. My boyfriend and I have decided that while here in Germany we will take advantage of our close proximity to many other interesting countries. We will be traveling at least once a month! In this space I will share my adventures with you! I love to see the places people go and the things they experience, and I hope you will enjoy my journeys too!
