FBFF - Blogging & Fashion

It's Friday again! And that means another round of FBFF questions from Katy of Modly Chic! Thanks, Katy for the great questions! If you want to see what other bloggers have to say, go HERE!

1.  Since you began blogging do you notice a change in the types of things you gravitate towards while shopping?
Definitely! Before blogging, I think I owned only one belt and it was black. I rarely ever wore jewelry. Now, when shopping, those are the first two things I go check out! I also tend to look for colors that I can mix and match, whereas before everything had to match perfectly. 

2.  Do you find, as a fashion blogger, that you dress differently from your family and friends? Do they comment on that?
Nope. I have a very stylish group of friends and family members. Seriously, any of them could have their own little Outfit of the Day Blog and totally rock it! I've probably been the least stylish of my friends in the months leading up to my blog because I got stuck in a bit of a rut after having the Little Miss. You know how it is... my clothes didn't fit, I wasn't happy with weight, and I put forth no effort into my outfits. But now? I think I fit right in with them and their stylish-ness. Yep, it's a word. Well, it is in MY head. =)

3.  What’s the weirdest fashion that you secretly like, even if you aren’t bold enough to wear it?
It's not really weird, but it's something I simply can't wear. Cowboy boots.  After asking you guys about them, I even tried to wear them. I put on a sweet flowery dress one Sunday morning, slipped into my boots and felt like such a faker. I couldn't do it. *sigh* I guess they're just not for me!

4.  Looking at current trends – what would you like to try but need to build up the courage to do?
Colored skinny jeans! They are so cute on every person I see wearing them, but I haven't tried it yet. A) I don't have any. And B) Even if I did, I'm kind of scared they'll make my legs look bigger than they are. lol

5.  Toot someone’s horn – what fashion blogger out there inspires you
 with her bold fashion choices?
This is a tough one because I am inspired by every single blogger I follow! But there are a few that have really been inspiring me lately and they are Oomph because her style is simply awesome; Tiffany because she uses color beautifully, and Taylor because she always look so chic and stylish in her pencil skirts and cardigans!

I hope you all enjoy your weekend! We're celebrating my Little Missy's 1st birthday and our 6th anniversary tomorrow! It'll be a busy, but fun, day!

LOL about the cowboy boots. I love them too but find that whenever I wear them with jeans I feel normal. But in a dress I am totally feeling like a poser. - Katy

You are too kind, lady. I am with you on the colored skinny jeans. I'll make a deal with you though - you try them, I will too!

Have a fantastic celebratory weekend!

interesting bit of information about you. I wouldn't wear cowboys boots either. It doesn't fit into my wardrobe.

It's so weird you mentioned the cow boy boots - I have a pair that I literally lived in for two winters and now, not ever again!!! Great post :)

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I'm the same way with cowboy boots - but definitely not colored jeans. I promise, they do not make your legs look bigger. Try it! Try it! Try it! (I'll be your cheerleader).
