Are you guys ready for this???? I mean seriously, Mamas, I hope you have a few extra minutes (or an hour) because Holly, above, has the BEST idea for a mom fashion blog.
Holly's blog is called My Year of Fabulous, and has the following mission statement:
To look my best every single day for a year or die trying. I will completely embody twelve looks, one look per month, in my quest to find a style that works for me. In the process, I hope to rid myself of total fashion intimidation and break free of a life long clothing rut.
She's currently on her boho month, but has tried rocker, mod, and Euro chic. Isn't that a great idea? But here's the best part: This chick is funny. Check out her blog banner:
Oh Holly. That is, indeed, fabulous.
In addition to her fashion experiments (with titles like Bohemian Poncho or Oversized Dinner Napkin? You Decide!) she also throws down some really sage advice on how to achieve the Bohemian look:
…all you have to do is channel the ultimate icon for Bohemian style Stevie Nicks. Let Stevie be the poet in your shopping heart and if you can’t picture yourself in something on stage, tambourine in hand, belting out “Landslide” – it’s not Bohemian and it’s not for you.
Holly is craft-impaired (we have this in common) and was recently confused by a Starbucks barista as being her son's older sister, rather than his mom. (We do NOT have this in common.) But she's not letting it go to her head. She realizes that "the Starbucks counter is deceptively wide. Instead of the standard two feet, Starbucks employees are actually taking your order from space, hence, the fuzzy visibility."
And, BTW, her style is real, practical, genuine, thrifty, and TONS of fun. One of my new favorite blogs.
Holly, thanks SO much for writing in!! I'm now a huge fan.
