I’ve wanted to write a list such as this for a long time. Following people online that inspire, keeps you fresh, they can open your up your world view and help you grow as a blogger. I have called them style bloggers rather than fashion bloggers, because I believe that style and fashion are two completely different things!
Style vs Fashion.
Style is innate, everyone has their own style, we are all unique. Celebrate your uniqueness, listen to your inner voice and you can’t go wrong…
There is a lovely interview with Caryn Franklin all about this, it’s fascinating stuff.
Do you have favourites? I dont mean your friends, but the ones you go straight to on insta and check out what they have been wearing or writing about lately…these are mine:

Catherine is a Bloggers Blogger, always approachable and always ready to help you if needed. A woman after my own heart, she too loves colour and is not afraid to mix it up.
This girl knows how to dress and does it with style, what a beauty eh? Another blogger I am proud to call a friend.
You can buy fashion but you cannot buy style…
Lastly a note, a small observation about Instagram and style bloggers.
(I very much doubt any of the above bloggers would do this…?)
Lately I have a noticed a strange trend creeping onto my instagram feed. I have noticed people who are very obviously, ordering clothes snapping them to put on instagram, then (I’m sure) sending them back. You never actually see them wearing the clothes in other pics of their daily life.
Surely sharing your own sense of style or ‘fashion’ means sharing what you wear and how you style it for all different occasions? In other words the many ways you can mix and match the clothes in your closet again and again to create different looks…
Surely it is not ordering heaps of clothes vlogging a haul then photographing for ig outfits posts them and sending them all back again!
I would love to know your views on this?
