City Slicker

{Shoes: Converse -- Jeans: Levi's -- Sweater: Urban Outfitters -- Jacket: Modcloth -- Under shirt: Urban Outfitters}

I am trying this new thing, it's called dressing for myself and not for my blog. I have noticed, since I've been blogging, that I tend to get into a sort of style rut when picking things out because all that is running through my head is "what would look cute in pictures". Now all I am doing is picking out what I want to wear, for me. And this is what I came up with. I drew inspiration from other bloggers of course, mainly those from England and Sweden at the moment. I was cozy all day plus I think this outfit turned out just fine in pictures, even though I am wearing a pair of jeans!

Also want to mention how in love I am with this new jacket from Modcloth. I have been searching for the perfect leather jacket far too long, and now it's mine! Such a wonderful feeling when you find something you have been looking everywhere for.

My mommy is in town so now I am off to go be with her, happy friday!

As a blogger, I empathize wit you. I often find myself redressing for what might be photo appropriate, instead of just dressing for the day.

This outfit is beautiful - it's casual yet delicate. I love the peter pan collar popping through the sweater!

sending you happy spells

Good for you! I sometimes find myself wondering "Would this outfit be worth taking pictures of?" But that is the whole point of a style blog, to show what we wear day-to-day! That sweater is great, I love the pattern on it.

Good for you for dressing for yourself! (excuse the excessive use of for) Though having a blog makes you more experimental with fashion, don't lose sight of who you truly are! For me, I never post a look that I will only put on the blog but would be mortified to go out with :P haha, anyways, love the sweater! and you look gorgeous :)

I love, love, love your jumper ;) Happy New Year from your follower :)

I know exactly what you mean. I find my favorite outfits are the ones I put together because it's what I truly feel like wearing..not what I think will look good in pictures. When I'm thinking in terms of my blog it takes me forever to get dressed and I usually end up changing anyway. I love this comfy and casual but still super cute!

That's a great jacket! I definitely find myself getting in the same sort of rut. Have to remind myself why I started to blog in the first place! :)

I do the same thing! When I get dressed for the day, one of the first things that runs through my head is, "How would this look in pictures? Am I going to take pictures today?" I guess as style bloggers we all dress for the camera at some point or another. Way to go for dressing for you and only you! I think the camera liked it, too. ;)

I really like this look. It's kind of edgy. :) It's very you.
I'm glad you're dressing for you now. It's kind of sucky to dress for something else. But you still look amazing.
Have a great New Year

Your style is always amazing! No need to worry so much, but I totally agree with you, dressing for the blog is much harder than simply dressing.
