A Final Style Challenge
Another Style Challenge has come to an end, and I've decided that this will be my last one.
So many good things have come from the Challenges. I met a group of amazing ladies, some of whom have become good friends. Those friendships led to the formation of The Blended Blog, and I'm very proud of our collaboration so far.
I've been gently forced to step outside of my comfort zone, and try new trends. Never before would I have worn "really big pearls" with sneakers. I was hesitant to try fringe, but I recently bought these booties, and I love them. During past style challenges I've discovered white pants, kimonos, and my now-favorite, leopard print.
But I think it's time for me to move on. I know what my style is, and I have a whole closet of outfits waiting to be put together.
I'm not a fashion blogger. I'm a blogger who happens to love fashion, and I enjoy sharing outfits each week. But let's face it, I live in the Pacific Northwest, which isn't exactly the fashion capitol of anything. I'm kind of all over the place when it comes to style, but in the end I just want to get dressed each day in something that makes me feel put together and pretty.
I've mentioned one of my style idols, Suzanne Carillo before. Everything she wears is so beautiful and unique, and someday I want to dress just like her. Probably never going to happen, but it's good to have goals. A few weeks ago, Suzanne responded to a comment I left on her blog, and mentioned that she had channeled me and worn an olive army vest, sweater and scarf. "Yep, this is what Lana would wear", she wrote. That simple comment made my day.
Maybe I do have a signature look after all. So I'll keep working on that, and sharing it on my blog. Because it makes me happy, and hopefully you all enjoy it too.
