How to Dress like a Top Fashion Blogger!

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see." ~ Confucious

Happy Monday sweetie pies! I hope you guys have an awesome and productive week. You ever come across bloggers/style stars and wonder how they can pull off even the most insane outfits? I get a lot of fashion inspiration from bloggers - I love seeing personal style and it definitely influences my personal style. Fashion bloggers always seem to have the most unique and fabulous pieces but what makes them style stars is how they put looks together. Well envy no more, I am going to share my top tips on how to dress like a fashion blogger!

1. Confidence is Key!
One reason bloggers always look so awesome is because they are confident in their own skin and it shows! Make sure to love yourself and believe in yourself just as you are, then the rest will follow.

2. Basics that are not so... BASIC
Bloggers know and understand the importance of having those basics (ie: solid tees, a pair of dark and light wash jeans, a black bag) Those pieces that help lay the foundation for an outfit. It is important to have these pieces and I would even go further to say that is okay to splurge on these pieces. Not only will these pieces be great foundation for your #OOTD's but also will transcend through all seasons. I will leave some of my personal suggestions below. 

3. Upgraded Essentials
I firmly believe in pieces such as white button down, a trench coat, etc. but what makes these pieces stand out on a blogger lie in the details. Fashion bloggers are often very detail oriented and that shows in their style. Instead of getting a plain jane white button down, opt for one with embellishment or embroidery. I would suggest to not go too overboard with the details otherwise it will be hard to find multiple ways to style it. Fee free to check out these suggestions below. 

4. The Secret is in the Accessories
I DEFINITELY have more accessories than I do clothes. You guys already know I am a sunglasses junkie. It is not just to protect my eyes but sunglasses definitely elevate your look. It is such a simple way to add to your look. Sunglasses, jewelry, scarves, belts, shoes and hats all are great accessories to have on standby just to give your look a little something extra. Check out this post from last week where I share how to let your accessories do the talking for your look.

5. Don't Limit Yourself!
Bloggers wear exactly what they want. Don't allow yourself to be put in a box - in fashion and in life. If there's a trend or a certain item of clothing that you want to try? Go for it! The most memorable bloggers are the ones who are usually the most bold and the most unique when it comes to their personal style. 

6. Dress for You!
Wear what makes you feel good - what makes you feel like the best version of you! You are the one that has to live in your body and live your life so do what makes you happy! I promise you, when you dress for yourself, it does wonders for your confidence! (See Keypoint 1 for reference.)  

7. Take Risks
Don't be afraid to mix prints, textures, trends and more! You may even surprise yourself. Like I have said on multiple occasions, some of my best looks have been from just experimenting. 

8. Develop an Eye for Details
As I mentioned earlier (see #3) bloggers often have quite the eye for details and snagging the most fabulous and high quality pieces. If you can invest, I would advise to invest in your basics because those pieces you wear the most. However if you can splurge on a few nice pieces I definitely suggest going for it.

9. Maintenance
Not only does a blogger do an excellent job at maintaining her never-ending wardrobe but also maintains her appearance. It is important to top bloggers to make sure that their hair and nails are cared for. I am not saying that you have to spend mega bucks to look good but make sure to clip those split ends. Have your nails polished or not at all. (I personally can't stand chipped nails, it can look really tacky!) Make sure to keep yourself looking nice and put together. Feel free to check out these suggestions for nail polishes that I personally love.

10. Have Fun!
Remember that dressing should be fun! Your style should be an extension of who you are. Let your creativity and self-expression shine! Those things are so important because those things will transcend when people look at your photos Talk about #OOTD #Goals!!!!

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
