Travel Fashion: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York!

Hey all!  I'm back in colorful Colorado!  First off, thank-you for all who checked out my lovely guest bloggers while I was away!  Traffic was amazing so I'm super glad that was a successful segment!  Also, HUGE thank-you to my guest bloggers!  I'm a) very happy all 8 I picked said yes because they were all ladies I considered special in the earlier days of my journey of fashion blogging (and still do!!!) and b) I myself learned something about each of them that I did not know prior to this past week, regardless of how much we've conversed outside of normal commenting, so that made the guest blog features even more fruitful and special for me!  I definitely intend to ask more ladies to guest blog in the future as there are others I feel very bonded to and would be honored if they agreed to write for me, though I am unsure if I will do it again while traveling.  While this past week was a smashing success, sometimes it was hard to predict when I'd have a moment fre…

Guest Blogger: Meet Becca!

I am out of town celebrating my birthday with family and visiting my childhood home before it's sale closes next month, so I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite fashion bloggers and fashionable Instagram friends while I'm away!  I really adore so many ladies I'm virtually friends with, so I decided to narrow down my 8 travel days with some of my earlier on and/or most bonded to friends, who obviously have great style (that's a given!).  I'll be traveling a lot over the next few months so if all goes well and we're fashion friends, you may be next ;)  Today brings us to our final blogger, Becca!  I met her approximately in the early-ish part of the beginning of my blogging career.  She stood out on Instagram because she was rocking a yellow polka dot dress from Myrtlewood that I had just tried but it didn't work on me.  Our similar sense of style hardly stops there as we've had other repeats and half of her clothes are already on my wish l…

Guest Blogger: Meet Serli!

Hi there, I’m so excited to be guest-blogging for Lauren today! I'm Serli (pronounced Sara-Lee, yes, like the bread) and I write the blog Le Soleil Chic :). I was lucky enough to “meet” Lauren through Instagram earlier this year. When I saw her pictures I immediately loved her style; we both share a love for novelty prints and vintage-inspired fashion, especially those fit-and-flare dresses and circle skirts. As a fairly new blogger I’m humbled and thrilled to be doing this guest post for Lauren! I've decided to share the story of how I became a "fashionista" and I’ll also include a few pictures from one of my favorite outfits (who am I kidding, I call all of my outfits favorite hahaha).

I’ve always been in awe of vintage-inspired fashion but never went “all out” with my own wardrobe until a few years ago. My daily outfits used to consist mainly of jeans and a t-shirt, or once in a while I would switch out the t-shirt for a cute top. During college (and all my life b…
