Style Evolution: How Blogging Has Changed My Style
It's been quite the journey since I started blogging (all the way back in 2011!? What!?), and today I thought I'd reflect on how this adventure has changed me. Let's just say, it wasn't without its bumps, bruises, and fashion disasters...
How many times can Linda pose in front of her white balcony fence? Answer: infinitely.
2011 was the year I started blogging, and I had no clue what the eff I was doing. Lighting? Camera settings? Background? Fashion? Whaaaa?
Haha, but blogging was a good way to discover style and document my journey in trying to obtain it. Plus, the high school I went to had a strict dress code, hence why I had to conform my ideals of fashion to theirs. It was rough, but I made it! Anyways, let's scurry past 2011, shall we? *all but shoves everyone to scroll down and stop looking at the above outfits*
Things start looking better in 2012, and during that time, I feel like my blog was at its all time high as far as views and comments go. Good ole Trendy Teal was doing so well. Not to mention I finally started realizing what looked good in an outfit. This was a transition year from high school to college, and during that time, I was a lot more playful with my wardrobe since I finally had the freedom to dress however I liked without worrying a teacher would whip out a ruler and make sure my skirt was long enough...
Ah yes, 2013. This was the year I feel that I started developing a sense for fashion. Outfits came together more easily and my photography improved vastly. Though I had no definite, personal style yet, I was figuring it out. I was still being influenced by everything I saw and was imitating trends.
This past year, things finally came together. I've fallen in love with the beauty of simplicity combined with quirky and interesting details. Basic pieces weaved together with intriguing accessories are what make an outfit stand out in all the right ways. I'm still learning, and I definitely shouldn't say anything that limits what I wear, but I think I'm figuring out what I like.
Cheers to 2015 being the most stylish yet!
