I am a tad obsessed with the blogging world. Ever since I created a LiveJournal account back in high school, I have been hooked. Over the past 10-15 years I’ve upgraded my platform, and blogging in general has morphed from a hobby into a lucrative business. In fact, a big part of my job in PR is working with bloggers and influencers to partner with my various clients and create content about them. Who would have ever thought that all of this random blogging knowledge I’ve accumulated over the years would help me in my career?
With all of that being said, I still love to read blogs just for fun. I wish fashion bloggers were around back when I was in high school – I could have used the help! 😂 Here are my favorite three blogs that I read regularly (aka on my lunch breaks at work 🥗):
A huge life goal of mine is to cultivate a closet that mimics Taylor Swift during her “Red” era. I love how she always looked ladylike and put together, even in her street style photos. Carly from The College Prepster doesn’t have as many nods to vintage style as Taylor Swift, but she has that whole preppy, classic style down. I also like how The College Prepster is a true lifestyle blog where she shares snippets about her family, her adorable dogs, and the books she’s reading.
Krista from Covering the Bases is also a preppy fashion blogger, but I like that she’s a size 6, so I know that I can successfully recreate a lot of her outfits. She also has a full-time job in marketing/social media, so I can relate to her. Lately she has been doing a lot of posts about what she wears to work, which I LOVE. Working in a casual environment like an agency, I can get stuck in clothing ruts, so I love using her outfits as inspiration. She has also made me a huge fan of navy blue. Coming from a girl who used to wear all black everything, this is a big step for me.
Megan from Freckled Italian actually used to live in Charlotte, and I met her when I attended two of her SkillPop classes – one on Instagram tips and one on blogging tips. Within this past year, she moved to California for her husband’s job, and is now expecting her first child, so I love to follow along on her newest adventures. She’s also a talented writer and I get lost in her dreamy, lyrical posts.
