To celebrate Friday, reaching 200 followers on Bloglovin‘, and the general awesomeness of Francesca’s Collections, I have a treat for you! Get 25% off an item from Francesca’s through the month of April with the promo code “SEEKING.” I don’t know if you’ve ever been to a Francesca’s location or browsed their online site, but go do it. For real. The size of their stores are pretty small, but I can literally spend hours in there. They have such pretty things and so many fun little trinkets. I first discovered Francesca’s at The Grove in Los Angeles. A friend and I would go in every single time we passed by and spent so much time looking around, making sure we touched everything of course.
I’ll be styling a couple Francesca’s looks myself this month!
So, happy Friday. Happy shopping. Happy weekend. Happy Easter!
*Jeans & Tee: Urban Outfitters. *Shirt: Thrifted (via Goodwill). *Denim Jacket: LA Fashion District. *Boots: Thrifted (via Crossroads).
So, I accidentally copied Dylana of Color Me Nana with this outfit. Accidentally, because the night I packed this outfit to wear in LA, my suitcase zipped tight, I was browsing through my Bloglovin’, and then stumbled up Dylana’s latest post. I decided to photograph and post it anyway because it’s obviously not identical, it’s definitely my style, and it brings up an interesting point.
I’ve spoken with several style bloggers who say they try not to look at too many style and fashion blogs because they do not want to be subconsciously influenced and copy someone. Well, I “copied” someone before I even saw her outfit! People are going to have similar styles. I am in no way comparing myself to Dylana; she is on a whole other level than I am. She is one of my style icons, I guess you could say. I love everything about her style. It actually made me smile thinking that I thought of a similar outfit because I am envious of everything in her closet.
Do you think you are too influenced by reading other style blogs (to the point of accidentally copying someone else’s look)?
I actually had packed a beanie as well, but forgot to put it on that day before we went out. It turned out for the better though, because it was super windy and they always fly off my head when it’s windy.
These shoes are another fabulous Crossroads find. I was about to pull the trigger and buy similar ones new for triple the price I paid at Crossroads. Ah. Mazing.
I wish everyone a fabulous weekend! And please remember to check out Francesca’s Collections and use the promo code “SEEKING” for 25% off an item!
P.S. I never say “fabulous” in real life, but somehow managed to use it twice in this post.
