Look What I Got: Like a Real Fashion Blogger

When I first saw these photos I thought, "I look like a real fashion blogger!"  I guess having a blog doesn't make me a "real blogger" in my mind.  When I think of real fashion bloggers, I think of the biggies: Atlantic Pacific; Kendi Everyday...you know, the classic hits.  But, I guess technically, I am a real fashion blogger.  I have a blog, it includes fashion, I am a real live person.  I guess I fit all the criteria.  However, I have yet to master the poses, include at least 4 trends in each outfit, walk a yard in heels without crying...you know all things that fashion bloggers, but not real people can do.  Well, look at me.  I am posed.  I am wearing a jewel tone, strappy heels, statement earrings and a bold lip.  I will admit though, I had tears in my eyes after wearing these heels for an hour.

I haven't sold out though.  That dress was $32 on clearance, the earrings were $22 on clearance, the shoes were $25 after a coupon, and I used credits to get the bracelet.  So, I might look like a big shot blogger....but I poured through sale bins to get these clothes.

I went with a slightly different look for the wedding I attended recently in Ibizia (yes, I know I haven't written about my trip yet, but life has gotten in the way).  I usually go for a more whimsical and playful look for weddings.  I decided to go classy, lady-like for this wedding.  I usually reserve pencil dresses for the office.  However, I am pretty happy I went with this look for the wedding.  It could have been pretty reserved....had I not added metallic heels and a whole lotta bling.

And I added that pic of the Scot and me because he seemed a little annoyed that I was cropping him out of pics to get a better shot of the necklace.

And don't think I have gone super fancy on you with my J. Crew dress and Kate Spade shoes and earrings.  All were purchased off the clearance rack.  $70 for the dres, $50 for the shoes, and $15 for the earrings.

Favorite Fashion Friday #67

 photo FavoriteFashionFridaylogo_zpsf66ade9e.jpg

I  love outfits that make a bold statement, but don't make you look like a crazy person.  And The Real Arnolds crafts that balance so perfectly.  Pattern mixing AND a statement necklace?!  AND you could wear this to the office?!  Perfection.
