SLIDER

like a blogger

beanie: american apparel, sunglasses: h&m, t-shirt + flats: urban outfitters, jacket: zara, skirt: h&m, rings: brandy & melville 

Structured skater skirt, Isabel Marant inspired Zara jacket, beanie, replace the flats with some ankle strap heels, and voila-- the typical outfit you would expect to find on 1 bajillion blogs (give or take a few zillion.) Perhaps with the real deal, Miranda Kerr would be seen wearing something similar (style icon!!) It's interesting how something can be so overdone on the blogosphere, but in real life, it's totally "cool" and "in" (depending on your tastes, of course.) I think it's maybe cause trends are almost concentrated on the internet. And I mean concentration in the chemical definition rather than the "I am concentrating on reading this book" way. Sometimes that makes me think that it's obligatory for me to try it out, cause isn't that why I made this blog in the first place? To try new things? But on the other hand it's obviously silly to do something simply for the sake that all the other people on the internet are doing it. For instance, I went to look at the Prabal Gurung collection at Target the other day. I was not impressed (McKayla Maroney style.) I almost bought something, and then realized.. I don't even like this crap. Sooo how do I discern which trends to try and which trends to ignore? Another point, sometimes things I think are "risks" or things that I wouldn't have worn before, are totally normal on the internet! Obviously the perks of this are a feeling of comfort, but the downside is that the whole effect of the thing is lost. Like, I spent a whole ten minutes contemplating whether to wear this or not this morning! Anyways, that was just a jumbling of my feelings and thoughts. Now I'm going to bake a cake made out of rainbows and smiles, we can all eat it and be happy!

  3. Mili, thanks for the tips for photo editing, I'll make sure to try them out!
    Omnomnom cake...anyway...yes, sometimes I feel the same way about the internet (and Prabal Gurung's line for Target). There are so many trends that I've been tempted to give into, but I'm glad I didn't bother spending the money or time on them because trends only last so long, so what's the point trying to fit in when these things keep changing? I suppose the best thing a style blogger can do is be true to herself and her interests, whether that means following the trends or not.

  5. Really like this outfit! Super casual chic; totally loving your jacket and ankle strap flats!

    Also, I couldn't agree more with you about it being silly to just follow the crowd and do/wear what everyone else is doing/wearing; it's almost like peer pressure, haha. Trends always come and go, but the trends I normally gravitate towards are the ones I personally like and the ones I can picture myself wearing.

  10. I love those photos! and how cool is the street artwork! beautiful.
    when it comes to trends I must say I really don't care about those since the best thing is when you can wear all the things you truly like. doesn't matter if it's "in" or not. that's why I love thrifting the most. btw, what a cool jacket that is! I love the pattern and it suits with your beanie very well.

  27. Ooooooooooo totally agree. Trends are like HYPER concentrated on the interwebz/blogosphere. Go with your gut. Wear what makes you feel good. (Whether it's SUPER trendy or totally out of left field.) I think the more you can just do you, the stronger "Milli" style you will develop :)

  28. I love your flats, they're adorable. I haven't seen that line for Target yet, but I like your thoughts about what trends to follow and ignore. Sometimes I notice a trend is really blowing up on blogs/the internet, but in my town literally no one is wearing these things and you somehow want to try the trend, but at the same time you wouldn't have thought twice about it if all these people online weren't doing it. And that's silly! Haha, I like trying trends, but I always ask myself, if someone asked me why I bought this, would I be able to honestly answer "because I like it" or would I be thinking about all the bloggers I saw wearing it and how I just wanted to join in? I just don't sweat it too much. That's also why I usually shop at thrift stores, so I can kind of ignore trends altogether XD. (((having no money also helps!)))

  30. I definitely know what you mean about the blog outfits. Sometimes it's just way too much. I'm a fan of your style though, very simple yet "blogger". I'm glad you decided on this outfit.. it is perfect. Everything from its simplicity to the lovely addition of the jacket and flats.

    Gorgeous Mili.

  62. you make some really good points mili... some of the reasons i've been posting a bit less lately is because i find myself in similar situations. i initially just wanted to start documenting the things that i wear but reading so many different blogs has made me explore trends i would not normally explore. after a long think, a laborious closet cleanout and an impulse shopping ban i think i'm back to where i want to be, a bit cathartic but necessary. plus some trends look amazing on some people but not on others. love this jacket, mostly on you and how you've styled it. probably wouldn't work as well on me!

  64. I overlooked this post at first, good thing I found it! Cause this blogger trends is the issue that bugs me for a while now. I wrote about it too in the past, but still, it's something that I have to work on. I mean, I truly DON'T need that white Zara skort or whatever it's called, so why do I want it? Is it because almost every blogger go like - yay I want it!? or the other way around - I want certain items so badly, but they've been all over the internet right now! And since I'm a full time blogger and don't have a chance to impress work colleagues who have no idea about fashion, maybe T'll look like a copy cat buying it? Dilemmas, dilemmas every single day.

    Saying that, I really love the outfit you're wearing. Speaking of beanies - that's one of the trends I'd love to try, but I look silly in beanies. You look adorable in it!
