Best Time of the Year

Fall is my favorite time of year. The weather is gorgeous, it starts to cool down, and I can finally wear a sweater without sweating with one of my favorite scarves. The leaves change to beautiful hues of orange and red and the excitement of the holidays coming up puts me in a great mood. Fall is the inspiration for the next blog I am posting about: Autumn Cozy.

I have posted a number of times about picture blogs and this is another one of those. I have said time and again, “Who doesn’t love a pretty picture?!” And that rings true for this blog. Autumn Cozy is filled with beautiful pictures of fall. It is a great reminder of why I love this season so much. Looking at this blog is like stepping into the coziest room full of everything you love plus hot coco and fluffy blankets.

The author, who’s name happens to be Autumn, posts many different fall-related photos. There are a lot of fall dessert pictures:

And, of course, there are many pictures of the colorful fall leaves:

There are pictures of fall clothing, and I love fall clothing:

And plenty of fall coziness:

I could seriously spend hours on this blog scrolling through the thousands of pictures on it. There’s something about fall that makes me feel so comfortable, and looking at this brings that right to me on my computer screen.

LA Street Style

I tend to like blogs that revolve around a certain city or place, which might be obvious since I follow so many NYC-based blogs. The next blog I am featuring is based in LA. It’s called Native Fox and is a street fashion blog.

Native Fox

I really like fashion blogs but many are unrealistic for, say, a poor college student like me. This woman does wear expensive clothing, but her clothes aren’t inaccessible to the everyday woman.

This blog is made by one woman who models her everyday outfits on the streets of LA.

I like how she posts casual looks as well as dressy looks.
And, of course, she provides a variety of angels and shots to show off her outfits.
Another thing that I really like is that she doesn’t write too much. Some bloggers will go on and on about a certain subject and it can be way too much reading for a blog. When I think blog, I don’t think about a lot of text. She writes a short explanation of her outfit and why she’s wearing it, and what she is up to for the day. For a fashion blog, that’s really all you need (plus the brands and links to the clothes you’re wearing, which she does).
The author, Jennifer, also has posts of inspiration in which she posts a handful of things she really likes at the time. Most recently she posted about her top ten skin care products.
She gave an explanation of each product and why she likes it. When fashion blogs have something a little extra, it really adds to the blog.

Inspire My Closet

I’m always looking for inspiration whether it be recipe or meal ideas, decorating tips or DIY how-to’s. One area I am always searching for a little idea help is fashion. That’s why I love following fashion blogs. I love seeing new ways to wear things, different combinations of unrelated items, and new and different ways to accessorize.

Enter the blog What I Wore.

What I Wore Header

I am a little picky when it comes to fashion blogs but for good reason. I don’t want to look at a fashion blog that is just pictures of what someone wears every single day. I’m gonna need a little information with all those fab photos of you wearing your fab clothes. For example, tell me where each piece is from and link to a place where I can purchase the piece. If I can no longer buy that piece, give me a link to where I can buy a similar piece. Jessica, the blogger, does just that and I love it.

Another reason I’m picky about fashion blogs is because I don’t really care much about clothing that I cannot afford, probably will never be able to afford, and clothing that I would never wear because it is very outlandish. As you can see from the above picture, Jessica does not spend mass amounts of money on designer pieces. She shops at places I regularly hit such as J.Crew, Target, and Old Navy. Even though some of these pieces are relatively cheap, she makes them look very chic.

Jessica makes it super easy to shop for the clothes she is wearing in her post, which is a definite plus.

She’ll also have links to posts with similar outfits, which is great because it helps you think of ways to style pieces in different ways. Woohoo!

Another reason I like this fashion blog is because it’s not just a blog with the outfit she wears everyday (boring). She incorporates different posts to make it fun. For instance, the post Top 20 Homemade Halloween Costumes for Adults on What I Wore (OMG!!!). I literally cannot believe she made all of those costumes herself.

Homemade+Halloween

Another example of the different types of posts she does is this: Your Workplace Wardrobe on What I Wore. She compiles work outfits of her own all in one place, which is helpful to those looking for just work clothing. work+wear+2

Pinning is my Interest

While this my not exactly be considered a blog, it sort of acts like one. In fact, most of the content comes from blogs. And I absolutely love it and am on it quite a lot. Let me introduce you to Pinterest.

pinterst

The way Pinterest describes itself is “a tool for collecting and organizing things you love.” For a better description, it’s a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other users’ pinboards for images, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” photos. If you double click on photos, almost all of them lead to a website.

pinterest-screen

 

For instance, if you double click on a picture of a shoe, a new page might open with the website for where that shoe is from. On other instances, images might bring you to the blog where the image was originally pinned from.

Pinterest also has an easy pin button. If you are on a webpage and see an image you like, you can click the pin button, which is located at the end of the web address slot. When you click the button, the images on the page you are on pop up and you can choose the image you would like to put on your Pinterest page.

For me (and I know for many others), Pinterest inspires me. I get inspiration for clothing ideas, decoration ideas, food and recipes, weddings, pretty much everything. And I find things that I’ve never seen before. There are so many great recipes and DIY projects for anything and everything. I could, and do, spend hours on Pinterest.

Merry pinning!

Preppy & Fun

I recently came across a new blog that I really like. It’s called Classy Girls Wear Pearls and is all about preppy fashion. The author, Sarah Vickers, loves to wear preppy clothes and clearly does so all the time.

While I do love this blog for the fashion, I’m not an always-preppy-clothed kind of woman. However, Sarah and her friends live in Rhode Island on the coast and are always finding adventure. They do things that me and my friends don’t often do, living on the coast and in New England.

They go walking on the rocks along the shore, they go “birding” or bird watching in the water, and they go play in the ocean and the lighthouses. It seems that her and her friends are always doing something whether it’s going out to the water and finding adventure or going to a friend’s lovely home and hanging out with friends. Whatever she’s doing, she’s dressed to perfection in preppy bliss.

Another thing about this blog that I really like is that it features men’s fashion, as well. All of her guy friends happen to be impeccably dressed at all times too, not just the ladies.

And not to mention the fabulous parties they hold and attend…

Revisit

Today, I am revisiting a blog I posted about months ago and for good reason. This week marks the first week of my last semester of college, so I thought it would be appropriate to revisit one of my favorite blogs: The College Prepster.

The College Prepster TCP

Even though the author Carly graduated college last May, she still blogs about college-related things. Just recently, Carly posted about study tips and back to school clothes. While I love looking at her blog for other reasons, I think it’s great she still sticks to the roots of her blog and writes on topics that many of her readers relate to.

She has a list of INTENSE STUDY TIPS, a lot of organizing tips to keep you focused on studying and so you don’t forget dates or deadlines, and a list of Apps that are helpful for school.

Since Carly graduated over a year ago and has had a job working in NYC for exactly one year, she does not post much about college or give school advice as much. However, I love the things she posts about. She’s been talking a lot more about fashion and clothing and about what she does in NYC.

Carly posts a lot about work, which is great for me since I am hoping to have a job come December after I graduate. She gives advice on stuff ranging from what Shoes to wear for interviews and jobs to a list of apps that show all How to Feel Like an Adult.

I definitely see myself using the advice she gives (and she gives a lot on all sorts of topics) in my future.

Trendy

I recently discovered a blog that is all about current trends. I love trendy stuff, but I love discovering new, cool things even more, especially when those cool things are popular. I find it interesting to discover what other people are interested in and why

The blog is called Trendland. The main page features a handful of trendy things from different topic areas. The topics are fashion, design, photography, art, culture, music, video, and shop. You can see all the trending things in those area, how cool!

Check out the front page:

This isn’t a blog I’ve been looking at for a long time, but it is one I really like. Most of the blogs I like, I like because they have great photography, and Trendland has plenty of that.

 

Love.

Recently, I’ve become infatuated with weddings. My sister got engaged a little over a year ago and a ton of her friends are getting engaged and married, so I see wedding pictures all the time. Also, a couple of my friends work for my friend’s mom’s flower shop and they bring flowers to weddings all the time and have beautiful pictures from the weddings.

Since I will be my sister’s Maid of Honor, I have been looking up wedding details ever since she got engaged. This leads me to how I discovered wedding blogs. And they are wonderful. I love seeing all different kinds of weddings and all the different details. There are so many options when it comes to weddings. You can do anything and everything. There are so many things that make weddings wonderful.

I follow two wedding blogs: Wedding Chicks and Style Me Pretty. Both do a great job at capturing all of those wonderful wedding details that make weddings so beautiful. Both blogs have great photography and include information directly from the bride, which is a nice touch. Something extra special that I like about Wedding Chicks is that they provide a little more information than Style Me Pretty. Wedding Chicks has more information about the details the bride chose, which is nice for those women looking at wedding blogs for inspiration for their own weddings.

Here are some pictures from Wedding Chicks, which focuses more on details:
