3 Ways Style Blogging Has Affected Me

Top: Old Navy (shop)
Shorts: NY & Co.
Wedges: Target (shop)
Belt: Kohl's (shop)

These pictures sum up a number of effects style blogging has had on me...

#1: New openness (and possible addiction) to yellow.

#2: Shorts with a button-down, long-sleeved shirt + wedges.  I don't know why I wouldn't have done a combo like this before, but I am a changed woman.  :)

#3: I keep thinking I'm more tan than I really am, like these pictures suggest.  But alas, I am not, and whenever I look down at my real legs I'm slightly disappointed that my tan went away.  Even though it was never there to begin with.  Whatever, minor detail.

When I was younger I actually was this dark and probably even darker.  I had major sock tans that were so defined it looked like I was wearing socks when I in fact was barefooted.  I know.  So sexy.  I do what I can.


  1. This is adorable! Doing the 30 for 30 challenge got me to do all the items in #2 as well.

  2. Hm, I haven't really thought about how style blogging may have (definitely has) affected me. I will have to ponder this. Anyway, yellow and you were made for each other, so it is a good thing you broke out the blog.

  3. I think this might be one of my most favorite outfits! I am just now discovering the magic of wedges with shorts. You look so cute!

  4. Blogging has definitely changed the way I dress! I have become more creative and open to dressing myself ha. Sweet outfit!

  5. Point number three is a regular occurrence for me. I always tweak my photos and come out just a little less pasty, my hair just a little more shiny. And then the mirror? She hurts me...

  6. I just tried on this top yesterday and decided to wait to get it, went back today and they were ALL sold out :(  I can't wait to see how you style it . . .

  7. Ha, I have that top and those wedges! My wedges are pink though. I love how you styled the top!

  8. Aw man.  That's so sad.  Sorry, Kristin.  :(

  9. You're cracking me up about the tan. LOVE the yellow gingham top... it's so fresh. I can see you wearing it with a lot of your bottoms from the 30 for 30 remix.

  10. I love love love this outfit! And I totally know what you mean by how style blogging has changed the way you dress! It's encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone and trying new things. And I'm totally addicted to yellow too now!

  11. Isn't it funny how drastically our skin tones change from childhood to adults?  I was always SUPER tan as a child and now I am as white as a ghost. It may have something to do with the fact that my mother FORCED me to always play outside so that I would be out of her hair and now I am always inside working... hhhmm... I really like that yellow button down by the way!
