Being in Italy has catapulted my urge to live to the fullest. Part of that is taking the time to dress well. I can remember the days of going out in my pajamas and thinking that was completely acceptable! But yet at the same time totally coveting the outfit of the trendy girl nearby.
The reality is I was a bad dresser.......I'll admit it. Not that I didn't know what looked good, I just could not put it together myself. It. was. so. hard. But I am over it (sort of), it's a work in progress.
I do have to give credit where credit is due and that is to my Bestie Dawn AND to styleyourlifeblog.com authored by Jennifer Rosson. I LOVE this blog because Jennifer is very down to earth (like I know her LOL) and she is great at what she does. She post outfits from casual to cocktail. And she is not high end all the time. Yeah sure you may click on a link and find a pair of to die for heels out of your price range but she will also have great outfits with pieces from the Gap or Target. She keeps a simple and clean site that features whats most important THE CLOTHES. And I also love her weekend and travel boards with outfits that you can mix and match all the pieces with just a couple of pairs of shoes. These weekend/ travel boards prove there is no need to over pack and really makes planning less stressful.
And to boot she does personalized birthday boards.........here is mine......OH YEAH when I saw that post I was like THAT'S ME, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! (INSERT RUNNING MAN)
Style Your Life Blog is out of San Diego. I am bummed I didn't find her when I lived in Mission Valley because that is basically her hood. But for my peeps who are still there she does lots of local events.
Here is Jennifer's about me page and a page on Six secrets to Style....the number one being Confidence.
And although I am a work in progress, it's fun, and 40 years from now I just may walk out the door looking like this...
...But I will do it with Style!
