Spotlight

I will probably never be a regular poster anywhere, not on my blog, not on my youtube channel, hell sometimes I even go a few days without tweeting, unheard of I know.
But that being said, I do keep up with the blogs I read. I try to live and breathe fashion, even when I'm in my schlubiest pajamas right before bed I must check my fashion blogs. I have them on google reader, I follow them on bloglovin on my phone, some I have bookmarked. Many of them are in all three places, except my favorite blog. This blog I have memorized. This is the blog that I'd like to put a spotlight on for a moment.

What I Wore is actually the first fashion blog I remember coming across and falling in love with.  Actually if I remember correctly it's the first one I ever came across. I wasn't looking for fashion blogs at the time and I found her completely by accident searching for a top or scarf or something. It was like a whole new world had opened up for me. I didn't even know blogs like hers existed, but there is was and I was in love.

I will probably forever have a huge girl crush on Jessica Quirk, I mean really look a her, she's so classy and fun, how can you not? Her wardrobe is everything I want to wear when I grow up and I want to grow up right now. She's bright and sunny and adventurous in what she wears, but still manages to look put together occasion appropriate. She's also very approachable, well her internet persona is anyways, but one would assume it would translate. Over twitter she helped me make what was an extremely important and very exciting purchase decision, the color of my Hunters . I went with Green by the way seeing as I live in a small town in Indiana.

I think having a style icon is extremely important. It gives you somewhere to go when you don't know what to wear.  But for me a style icon is a bit more than that. Her blog is where I go when I'm sad, sick or just flat need comfort.  The day of my first car accident, I came home ate pepperoni cheese crackers, watched What Not to Wear and read back posts of What I Wore. I needed comfort and familiarity, and I found that in her blog.  Looking back over posts I had seen before and loved, made me feel homey and comforted, like a fresh from the dryer blanket. (Side note: The accident was a non-incident really, I only really did cosmetic damage to my car and the other car. I was more brokenhearted that I'd had my license less than a month and I'd already done damage, boo!)

Who are your Style Icons?
