My Favorite Fashion Blogs: Thursday Link Love

Link Lovin ThursdayI started getting into blogs when I was pregnant, purely by accident.  <begin rant> I was freaking out over how grotesque my stomach would be after I had my baby, and I was Google Imaging post-baby stomachs.  I'm a glutton for punishment.  There are a few bloggers who post their post-baby bodies, and it's realistic, but mostly you'll get photos from plastic surgery sites that are terrifying.  Don't Google Image, "post-baby body" when you're pregnant.  You'll have nightmares. <end rant here>.  The point is that I ran across Veronika's Blushing.  Veronika, the writer behind the blog, had a baby in May, 2014 - about 4 months before I was due to give birth, and I was in the height of my post-body freak out.  She had posted pictures of her body post-baby, which were quite normal, and I started reading her posts from when she was pregnant, and I got hooked.  She is also a working mom, and we're in a similar field, so I identified with her easily.  Her blog got me completely addicted to the blog world, and it spiraled.

Below are the top 3 blogs that I check everyday.  These aren't the only blogs I read, but they are the ones I read first thing in the morning, every morning.  I like my routines :)

1.  Veronikas Blushing - She posts mostly real-life, workday fashion posts, but she has posts about being a mother, crafts, and everyday life sprinkled in as well.

2.  Little Blonde Book - Taylor Morgan is the adorable chick behind Little Blonde Book.  She writes all fashion posts.  Taylor chooses very wearable clothes and styles it for the everyday girl.  She occasionally posts about her equally adorbs baby girl.  Her blog just celebrated its 1 year anniversary.  Having as much success as she has reached in one year is a dream!

3.  Gal Meets Glam - Gal Meets Glam is written by a blogger named Julia.  She's all fashion with travel thrown in as well.  Her fashion posts are a mix between formal and every day.  While I wouldn't necessarily choose to wear everything she wears, I love the way she styles and it gives me ideas of new twists on the clothes I like to wear.
