A thought

Things have really changed over the years. Celebrities used to be the only ones in the style spotlight but in this day and age top tier bloggers are also considered influential. Don’t you think? I know that when I’m looking for inspiration I don’t look at photos of actresses or singers like I used to, I look at other real life girls who have killer style.

Recently I’ve started to notice a certain trend going on. All of the real life girls I usually turn to for inspiration are wearing everyday clothes but with a serious price tag. I have no judgment towards them in anyway; in fact I applaud them and their success. It can, however, be intimidating to others who are trying to do the same thing but don’t have the same kind of budget. Yes, a designer label is nice to have but it shouldn’t be what drives your sense of style. A stylish person can create the most beautiful outfit with pieces bought at a thrift store. You can still have style without dressing (and spending) beyond your means.

I know this isn’t my usual sort of post but it’s been on my mind. And okay, my boyfriend wasn’t back in time to take my outfit pictures!
