If you had told me a year ago I would have been wearing shoes made of black leather with studs and buckles on them, I probably would have told you to take your street-style-blog-loving self out of here. I am not the girl who would be seen on a street style blog in such cool shoes, let's just be honest with ourselves. I'm the girl who usually wears bows, polka dots, and bright colors. And yet- I was asking for these booties for Christmas before I could even realize what I was asking for.
I think one of the most fascinating things about blogging has been the direct effect it has had on my everyday life. At first, I didn't think it really had much impact on me aside from the relationships I have formed. Was I really doing much different? I was still just posting pictures of what I happened to be wearing on a Tuesday or a Wednesday for classes or a date right? Not much was different? Wrong. All wrong. Blogging has changed my life. Yes, I do just post pictures of what I happen to be wearing on a specific day but it's also turned into something I figured out I did with more passion than I had in other aspects of my life that I should have had passion for. Namely being school. I just declared myself an English major instead of a pre-med Biology major and I don't think I would have had the bravery nor realization without my blog to convince me that I loved being creative. And as much as I'd like to pass off how I dress as just a materialistic surface level hobby, I know in the past two years it's become more than that. It's fun. It's not something I take too seriously, but it is something I love. And while I'm still not the cool street style blogger wearing what's "trendy" at the moment, my style has indeed changed to reflect my real life. No, I don't really wear bows anymore. I still wear polka dots, but maybe not with bright patterns and crazy tights. I'm 20, and I enjoy seeing that reflected. And I guess turning 20 means I also enjoy black booties with studs but still keeping them "me" by wearing a bunny patterned shirt?
Thank you so much Jen for letting me guest blog! It's always, always a pleasure. I adore Jen to the moon and back.
