Unlike Buster who enjoys wallowing in a self-made hole, I am struggling with the hole I’ve dug myself into with this blog devoted to style and fashion on the Outer Banks. I’ve yet to find my voice.
Working by myself in a marina, I’m surrounded by boats and beautiful water views, but few people this time of year. Any sense of style here is guided by practicality such as deck shoes and khakis.
Additionally, I’m on a tight budget, so with the exception of an occasional lunch or dinner out with the Hubs, there aren’t any shopping trips, pedicures or gallery openings in my future. But, on second thought, that’s not what life on the Outer Banks is all about. I am thankful for the beautiful sunrises over the Atlantic, enjoying plentiful fresh seafood, and my small town life on a barrier island. I’m especially thankful for the Hubs (Happy Anniversary!), my family, friends, my coaches, kickboxing classes and bootcamp.
So, I guess for now, most of my fashion inspiration comes from the Internet. I will always give credit to the sources of my photos however possible and thanks to all who have come before me. I read your blogs, comment when I can and sincerely thank you for your creative effort and talent!
I found this lovely combination of florals and stripes and perfecting the art of the partial tuck at Sketch 42: “Not exactly a leopard and a floral, but fun none the less… Blazer: Zara, Jeans: Rag And Bone, Sweater: Similar. Belt: Similar, Boots.” (Click here.)
I find inspiration daily from a few of my favorite blogs:
Just as soon as I can figure out how to add these to my Blog Roll, they’ll have a permanent position here.
