style, my dear

i've finally come to the point where i feel good with my style. when i got married and moved to philly i had no friends so i started following a lot of style blogs. and if there is anything these ladies have taught me, it's that as long as you feel cool in what you're wearing, you're gonna look good.

i used to get bogged down on wanting to wear trends that just don't work for me. for example, i love the pollyanna, preppy look but can i pull it off? not unless i'm on a boat and even then it's probably iffy. sorry, sperry, i don't think we'll be friends anytime soon.

with that in mind, these are my favorite blogs having to do with clothes and style. i love how each of these girls puts together an outfit. holla!

first up is Elsie at A Beautiful Mess. she is so fabulous and her clothes are magical. i love love love her blog with all of her fun DIY projects and style posts. if you read and you like pretty things, go over there. actually, even if you don't read just go over there and look at the pretty pictures.

Next up is Elizabeth at Delightfully Tacky. Her style is so funky and artsy, i love it! Elizabeth lives in washington and went on a tour around the US in a winnebago. her blog is pretty cool so you should check it out, plus look at her hair!

i freakin love this chick's blog, as does everyone else on the interweb. i have to be honest, i avoided this blog for a long time simply because i thought the name kendi meant she'd be annoying but joke's on me! this chick is hilarious with great style. most of her outfits are out of my comfort zone, so i love to turn to her when i need to dress up. extra bonus? her entries are always short and funny. it's like she knows i have the attention span of a gnat...

this girl has amazing hair and crazy ridiculous style. her shoes alone are enough to make you go WHOA. her photos are pretty rad too.

Three Nails Photography isn't a style blog, it's a wedding photographer's blog. However, his photos are so amazing and the things he takes pictures of are great inspiration for outfits. If you like pretty things, check his blog out.

so that's it! those are my favorite pretty blog things. whoop whoop!

also, i would like to thank the combination of diet coke and citrus vodka for my previous post claiming both candice bergen and the my drunk kitchen girl as my heroes.
