Fashion Friday: My first real style post!

My first ever personal style post!

I have a confession to make: I am obsessed with style blogs. I read, like, two travel blogs, and the rest are all fashion. I have been wanting to bring some style posts to this blog for a long time! I have often discussed on here that sometimes I am not sure what this blog is. Is it travel? Is it lifestyle? I guess it’s going to get a lot more complicated when I start talking about style!

By the way, I don’t know how Style Bloggers do this regularly, because taking pictures outside in the morning like this is 90% embarrassing, and only 10% fun.

I don’t think I have the best style in the world, but I think every girl has a day where she thinks, “Man I really put together a great outfit today! If only my outfit could be this perfect everyday!” I have more days where I know that I am just missing the mark than I do perfect outfit days, but this past weekend I really thought I nailed it, and I am proud to make this the very first style post.

The asymmetrical cut in the front of this DKNY jacket keeps it edgy, but the cream color matches EVERYTHING!

I have found that fashion is something you have to think about thoughtfully and work on. I have recently tried to start paying a little bit more for a little bit more quality pieces, like this cream colored leather jacket that I am obsessing over! This was a staple piece I was looking high and low for, and I was happy to pay a bit more for it, it was worth it!

This is a great outfit for if you have a long car ride somewhere, and need to arrive looking impossibly fresh.

While we are on the subject of ‘high and low’, I just want to say that this feature of my blog will never be a posts about ‘high and low’ fashion where the ‘low fashion’ is considered J.Crew or Top Shop. That to me is about as high fashion as I can reach right now. My low fashion is a $15.00 blouse from Forever 21, and sometimes that will still be the most expensive part of my outfit. I get serious eye-roll syndrome when some of my favorite fashion blogs state that they love mixing high and low pieces- and their ‘low pieces’ range from $150.00-$300.00. Come down here with the little people! I am not ashamed to say that the ‘low fashion’ (and by that I mean cost) is the jeans featured above, which I got for $3.00 at Wal-Mart. You read that right- $3.00.

Be kind about these photos- it was our second time taking pictures that are style-worthy. I can tell that we have a long way to go in terms of quality, but I think this will be a fun experiment!
