Hey there bloggers! Blogger Sketch Sunday is now back in business! This is the Twenty-Seventh edition of Blogger Sketch Sunday. This week's post features Taylor of Sterling Style whose blog is located in California.
3 Reasons I love this blog:
-Alright so Taylor's blog is the perfect choice for my first feature of 2011. I along with probably 90% of the American population, I have made a New Years Resolution to get back in shape. For all the emphasis on appearances in fashion blogs, Taylor's blog is the only one to actually testify working out to look good. (Look at those Crossfit-toned legs!) I admire her enthusiasm and drive for staying fit. Its refreshing to see a blogger who is upfront and proud of her workout routine instead of falling back on the "I'm-naturally-this-thin-and-gorgeous-and-I-can-eat-whatever-I-want" excuse. She makes me believe that perseverance and hard work will pay off. Now to go find my old running shoes...
-Despite what I said in the reason above, I am pretty sure that Taylor really is just-that-naturally-gorgeous. I would describe this blogger's style as a balance between the sharp prep-ster look of J.Crew and the lavish girly-ness of Carrie Bradshaw. Her wardrobe is full of preppy basics like good layering cardigans, crisp classic trench-coats, and simple button down shirts. These act as a good baseline for the frilly clutches, huge pink flowers, feminine ruffled dresses, and teeny floral prints she uses to punch it up. Her outfits are always clean and classic with a little something extra to make it spectacular.
-I love that this blogger is honest about her blog's success. Her blog has gotten much recognition, attracted many followers, and she has gotten quite a few features. But Taylor still remembers when it wasn't all so easy. Her advice about being patient for your blog to grow and succeed is valuable to any blogger on the web today. She is right that blogging needs to be an expression of your personal passions and points of view, not some campaign to get famous.
If you've never come across her blog, which I seriously doubt, you should go check it out for yourself. I've located the link at the top where I first named her blog.
Thanks for reading bloggers!
Hope you all had a great start to 2011!
