My First "Personal Style" Blog Post Attempt: Cropped Collared Shirts

I have been feeling super inspired lately by style blogs. (Courtesy of the themomedit.com )

And on a personal note, it’s a relief for me to feel those much-missed stirrings of inspiration and avidity for life…it’s been a LONG time coming but I am starting to think this is the  year that I get my groove back. (I know…it’s cheesy but feels true to me). 
So, this is my first attempt at trying out a “personal style” blog post, it was only recently that I learned about the world of personal style blogging (I know I’m behind the times). I don’t know if my style is any good, I used to not care at all and just wore what I wanted and kind of still do – but also I am trying to be more aware of my body type and my age- as much as it kills me,  I am not a teenager anymore, or even in my 20’s. (WAAAAAAH). But still I can’t help but be drawn to bright colors, patterns, form fitting clothing items. But, on my budget let’s just say, I am VERY limited on options. (It’s embarrassing where I shop, and I’m not sure I’m ready yet to embarrass myself anymore than I already am in this post). 
My Theme: Collared Crop Tops & Skirts
(ps I have no idea how to pose..it’s way harder than I thought)
Why? Because I love this blue shirt (and a coral version too), and try to incorporate it into my every day outfit. Plus it’s been super hot lately. 
           i
This was the first outfit I liked, although I didn’t feel 100% comfortable in it, the skirt was too tight and short, so I felt like I had to constantly pull it down and adjust over the potbelly. lol. 

 Second Outfit
This is the second outfit, and the one I chose to wear to a wonderful friend’s bridal shower. This was the best picture because I was running behind on time before the shower and didn’t get a good full length mirror glance at the final product and this skirt is PRETTY tight and my ba-dunk-a-dunk was kind of out of control. (Sorry Aly and Aly’s mom, grandma, ext).

oh and the shoes are my favorite heels of this summer…they are Dolce Vita brand and I got them at Nordstrom Rack.  (Thanks dad for giving me the gift card!)

So, thank you guys for reading…what do you think? I would love to hear any comments, suggestions, advice, tips, your personal preferences…HIT ME WITH IT!).

Happy Summer Hazey days!
