I am happy to report that after 14 hours of driving and a 30-degree temperature drop, I am back in much-cooler Indiana. Now all that’s left to do is unpack … which I am going to procrastinate on until Sunday.
Today’s Fashion Beauty Friend Friday (FBFF) is courtesy of Katy at ModlyChic. If you have a fashion or beauty blog, you’re welcome to participate in the bi-weekly questions! Find more info here. The topic we’re discussing today is all about location and how it affects our style - curious, considering I just made the move from Little Rock back to Indiana.
- What specific part of the world do you blog from?
I blog from small-town Indiana 98 percent of the year. I live in a small town (less than 500 people), and my university is in a small town (about 2,000 people).
- If you had to describe the overall mode of dress for where you live, what would you say?
In the Midwest, denim is key in everybody’s wardrobe, and I think that is very true for my own wardrobe. While I was in Little Rock, however, I tended to wear more skirts and dresses, even on the weekends, in an effort to stay somewhat cool.
- Do you fit in with the status quo around you, or do you break the mold?
I like to think I break the mold, particularly while I’m at school. I know I’ve said this before, but I stray far from the typical college uniform of sweatpants and ratty T-shirts. I like my wardrobe to be fun and to reflect that I’m in my 20s, which means I definitely don’t mind wearing certain items like leopard wedges or preppy blazers.
- If you have lived or traveled to another part of the country/world, did your clothing choices evolve?
When I moved to Little Rock for the summer, everything became about staying cool in the extreme heat. I really grew to love dresses and skirts down there as much as I love my denim.
- If you had to describe your style by naming a specific city, what would you be?
This is a tough one! I’m definitely not L.A., and even though I’d like to be N.Y. one day, I’m not there yet. Maybe I’ll go halfway. Chicago, perhaps? That sounds like a good medium to me.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
