Laura from Walking in Memphis in High Heels
So I think I’m having an identity crisis. I have always sort of seen myself as a girly girl. I love makeup, clothes, pink, ruffles, dresses, and anything girl related. My bedroom is currently pale pink ruffles with floral lamp shades and I can be persuaded to purchase anything with a Shabby Chic print on it from Target. I mean, my ultimate icons are Jackie Kennedy (hello, blog name), Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. YET, when I dress myself lately I find wearing edgier colors and pieces that make me feel more me than the girliest of looks. When I look at the pieces of clothing in my closet that really make me happy they all have a couple of things in common. They have black and white prints, studs, spare details and a toughness to them. I like offbeat jewelry rather than the typical girly pieces of my past and I like less fuss and frou frou.
On to the point of this post. When Laura had asked if I wanted to do a styled look with metallics in it I had come up with another outfit originally that just wasn’t me. It looked fine, but when I put the above look on I felt more like myself. The flowy tank, the gray, ripped jeans and silver heels is more laid back and I like that kind of look right now. BUT, if I could take Laura’s outfit right off her (and I would!) I would love to wear that, as well. Confused yet?
This is my problem with my upcoming blog (re)design. Am I girly, or edgy? Or both? I love floral elements and pretty details, but also spare black and white looks. I had posted a question on my Twitter page a couple of days ago about what you guys thought my blog and I were all about design wise, because sometimes you need opinions from the outside to really see yourself, you know? One answer I loved was edgy with girly colors. Which is sort of what I’ve been thinking all along. (Gosh I love Twitter for the immediate feedback.) So tell me, if you could describe this space and me, what would you see?
Moving on to something fun. Laura has been kind enough to put together and include my wonderful readers on an amazing giveaway to win the currently sold out necklace below. Just fill out the Rafflecopter entries and I’ll make sure to cross my fingers for you lucky ducks. The sad thing about giveaways? I can’t enter. (Boooooooo.)I guess I’ll have to browse Pinterest for blog design elements instead, which is my current obsession. Must. Stop. Looking.
