Dressing for me

I always enjoy editing my pictures.  I'm no pro, but it's a good time to look at what I wore and reflect.  Some days I realize I don't really like how I styled an outfit, and other days I love the final outcome.  When I was editing these pictures, I realized I loved everything about this outfit.

Some people may think, "Well, I would've styled it a little differently..."  Others may flat out hate it.  But I love it, and, at the end of the day, that's what's most  important.  I'm finding what works for me, and I can't seem to resist vintage-inspired, feminine looks.

Having a fashion blog makes it really easy to dress for other people, but dressing for ourselves should always be of the utmost importance.  If you like what you see in the mirror, your confidence will help you carry any outfit.

Give me an outfit with a vintage-inspired floral and some colored tights, and I'll rock it any day.

I agree with you about dressing for yourself. I find it so interesting that it's not something a lot of girls are naturally good at! However, I don't think anyone could possibly dislike this outfit, it is gorgeous! Love the floral mixed with the leather and those tights are just the perfect shade. Love.

This is such a lovely outfit! So sweet and delicate and then you add the edgier jacket and voila! Perfection.

You look gorgeous! Especially with the blossoms in the background. It adds a pretty touch to the photos. Random but do you watch Pretty Little Liars? Has anyone told you you look almost like Troian Bellisario? Of course you are the fun one- she's rather uptight on the show.
