Best of the Web: Style Blogs of the Week no. 84
Have you been spending a little more time outside than usual this summer? If so, you’re doing it right! If you haven’t, and you spend most of your time cooped up in a concrete jungle, try taking some time out to enjoy some sunshine and nature – even if it just means taking a quick stroll around your local park. We thought there would be no better tribute to the summer season than sharing a few blogs that might have you reaching for your favorite nature-inspired accessories. Some of our picks from this week’s batch of blogs include Faith’s floral hair pins, Lucinda’s fly earrings, and Kathleen’s sea-inspired earrings.
“My blog is a collection of ideas and inspirations that influence my creative world as a jewelry artist. Some topics that I cover include new designs that I am working on, places I have traveled, other artists that inspire me and my ever-growing collection of beads!” — Kathleen
“Belvedere Beads is a lot of chatter about my time spent at the torch and pictures from my glass studio. I have always adored fire, and from the minute I melted my first rod of glass and wound it into a bead, I was completely in love. My blog is also about making jewelry. As you can imagine, it wasn’t long after I started making beads that I was up to my elbows in them and had to do something with all that glassy goodness. Of course, there are also tales of my life as an artist and foolish matron, happy snapshots of my prize poodles, and long talks about painting and cupcakes and whatever else I want.” — Lucinda
“The Ordinary Mommy Design blog is a place to explore the Ordinary Mommy brand and catch glimpses of everyday family adventures. Readers are also offered simple tutorials and practical fashion; all inspired by small home living and a love of simplicity.” — Faith
Part of the fun of being a fashionista is being your own personal stylist and picking out lovely pieces from your wardrobe every day. To amp up the fun, try transforming your room into its best imitation of a Barbie mini kingdom. Grab a vintage vanity table and a full-length mirror and make getting ready every morning feel like playing dress up!
