Why do people style blog?

Taking pictures of yourself and your outfit and posting them on your blog. That’s style blogging. And frankly, I love it. My lovely gem of a cousin in law, Amy and I, have been discussing this topic. Her and I have heard some of the same things when it comes to style blogging- that people who post pictures of their outfits are vain and totally into themselves.

That’s not what style blogging is about at all. I personally admire style bloggers for their courage to put their look out there for everyone to possibly criticize. I love, love, love fashion and seeing how other people interpret fashion is fun for me. What can I say? I’m a girly girl when it comes to clothing.

I don’t consider myself the most fashionable person in the world, but I still have fun with my wardrobe. In fact, I was working on putting together a few style blogs for my own blog several months ago, when I was hit with the comment that style bloggers are self centered. That sincerely made me feel bad, because I’m not self centered. I just happen to love clothes. My clothes, and the way I put them together, are partially how I express my personality.

So anyway, if you want to read mine and a few other blogger’s opinions on what we like about style blogging, then please visit miss Amy’s blog today. She makes some great points.

I think we can all learn to stop judging before we know the reasons why people do things in the first place. One of my biggest pet peeves is people who knock something just because it’s not something they’re interested in. Why can’t we let each other enjoy our own personal interests while we enjoy ours? To each his own.

Saturday Spaces and Places…and more

Hello my lovelies! I have lots to share today.

First off, I want to let my blogger friend, Kim know that I am thinking of her. She’s got something tough she’s going through today, so I’m sending her all the positive vibes I can to help her, Mister, and Rocky. Hugs, you guys.

Secondly, my cousin in law, Amy is conducting a project this week and I’m so excited to be a part of it. It’s a subject that is very near and dear to me so I asked her if I could jump on board and write a guest post for it. My guest post will be going up tomorrow but for today, I wanted you to head on over to Amy’s blog and read the introduction for this project, as well as the first post. Amy truly is a gem and I’m so happy to have gotten to know her better.

Now, on to today’s Spaces crush. You knew it was coming. I said I had spring fever! It’s time to start sharing some favorite outdoor spaces!

How amazing is this outdoor patio? Gives me chills just looking at it!


What I Love About It:

Well, I love luscious, green outdoor spaces so everything about this space pretty much pulls me in but it was the overhang onto the water that really caught my eye. Gorgeous!
