Outfit favourites from the blogopshere

Some Girls Wander

Okay, so pretty much anything that Emily from The Black Apple wears, I adore. She has a cute classic style that doesn't seem to get boring even though she often dresses within a theme. Her pops of colour are also refreshing.


I'm a little iffy about the scarf, but everything else about this outfit is great. Particularly like the patterned tights, the smidgen of bright tangerine, and the round bottom hem of her coat. I'm not sure whether her tights are layered, but she's just given me the thought to experiment with that.

The Satorialist

I've been at uni or otherwise out for the past few days, and it seemed that plaid jackets similar to this one (a bit more 'bomber' in style, though) are everywhere. I automatically avoid 'all the rage' items on principle (even if I like them, i.e. gladiator sandals) but this girl's outfit makes it look fresh and I wouldn't say no to dressing like her.

The Coveted

The thing I love most about this outfit is the patterned dress coupled with a longer, deep purple skirt that pokes out at the bottom. I'm very much a fan of layered skirt-ing, especially when the colours are as complimentary as these.

Things to try:
Layering tights
Layering skirts
Incorporating bright, rich colours

Thanks for the style blog tips! I already read Emily and the Sart's blogs, but I'm about to check out the others. Have you seen www.seaofshoes.com? Its a bit high fashion for me, but Jane has great style!

Penny - Yes! I'm looking forward to wearing tunic dresses over long sleeved tops, mm.

Megan - I used to have Sea of Shoes on my reader, but I got rid of it because I wasn't getting anything out of it. She dresses a bit too outlandishly for me, and I could never hope to pull off her shoes.

Another favourite fashion blog I forgot to mention is Keiko Lynn of Postlapsaria: keikolynn.blogspot.com
Adorable, inventive and colourful! (And I like that she doesn't succumb to trends)
