FBFF: Location, Location, Location

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.

  1. 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). 
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
