The honest truth about my blog is that I’ve wanted to start it for quite some time. I remember being in college, following along with some of my favorite bloggers and feeling inspired to follow in their footsteps. Back then I thought I had similar items in my closet and valued a platform for a little self-expression. Despite my interest, I was always too afraid to get my own project off the ground. More on that to come later!
If you follow along with me on Instagram, then you might have seen that one of my friends who knew me back then came to visit over the weekend. We reminisced about when my blog was just a dream and how far I’ve come since then. I thank all of you who are reading this now for following along with me and helping me actualize that dream. Of course, I also have to pay homage to those ladies who inspired me in the first place. Many of these bloggers I’ve followed for years and continue to follow along! Their growth and journeys also get me excited about what the future may hold for myself. BUT if you’re interested, here are some of those fantastic and fashionable ladies that keep me reading along!
Atlantic to Pacific – I have to start this list with my favorite blogger and the first blogger I ever followed religiously. Blaire brings imagination, whimsy and color to each outfit and constantly inspires me to be more creative with mine.
Brooklyn Blonde – A more recent follow since I moved to New York, Helena’s blog combines classic sophistication with New York City edge.
Ranti in Review – One of the ladies who made me feel comfortable blogging as a woman of color, Ranti gets me inspired to play with volume and interesting silhouettes.
Walk in Wonderland – Another inspiration in more ways than one, the beautiful Sheryl makes trends feel sophisticated and relatable. From sheer fashion to velvet or metallics, I love seeing the latest styles on this blog.
Something Navy – One of the today’s biggest Super-bloggers, I love seeing Arielle’s cool-girl style and how she wears her outfits in everyday settings. Plus, her daughter is the cutest and I love taking a peek into their lives!
Damsel in Dior – I love Jaycee’s style because it’s very on-trend, but classic and minimalist at the same time. Her style and shopping links are impeccable.
Cupcakes and Cashmere – Another one of the first blogs I followed, I love Emily’s casual and uniquely Cali style. It’s been amazing following along with her for years and seeing her business (and family) grow! Plus, I always remember that one time I emailed her and not only did she respond, but she was sweet as can be!
Symphony of Silk – A newer follow that Alexa suggested, Lorna plays with trendy styles but in a way that never seems over the top.
Gal Meets Glam – On the more cutesy side, Julia always styles ultra-feminine looks that create a feeling of Southern Charm.
Margo & Me – Last but not least is the ultra classy and romantic blog, Margo & Me. Jenny, a self-proclaimed Francofile styles feminine and romantic looks that feel straight of a storybook.
And there you have it…some of the my favorite blogs that keep me inspired and stylish. I hope you discovered something new and keep following along with yours truly! Love you dolls! xo
