Minimal pieces with bold elements. This top is one of my favorites that I own because it really tests my styling capabilities. It’s also quite dramatic, and is rather short on my long torso. I paired it with these high-waisted black jeans and waddup. Instant balance.
I haven’t shopped for spring clothes yet because I’ve had other expenses lately like oh, I don’t know, A PLANE TICKET TO GERMANY. Yes, homie. I am going to Germany in June. I haven’t been out of the country since 2009, and it happened to be to Germany for my study abroad program in college. I am just a giant bag of excitement. A GIANT BAG.
Keep it real.
I attended my first local blogger event last weekend! You really learn a lot about yourself when you go to an event alone. I noticed that I need to be more comfortable with selling myself as the face of Morning Ink and that it’s not worth worrying about your blogger social status. I was surrounded by talented women and men who had either been in the business for years, or had just started months before. I don’t get to talk about my hobby too often with others, so I enjoyed discussing things like the woes of posing and Google Adsense.
I finally became an official member of Houston Fashion Bloggers today, and I am so thrilled to be associated with such an amazing group of talent. We discussed how underappreciated Houston is for its style and beauty scene, and that it’s up to us to prove that this city has more to it than oil and gas. I want to be a part of that change, so this is a step in the right direction.
See you all at the next event!
