Summer Style: Keepin' it Coral and Floral

This was an outfit I wore on Holiday to a little fishing town (I have been dying to share it with you all for ages, but couldn't seem to find it!). I absolutely love peachy/coral tones and thought this kaftan styled jacket would look really cute over this floral dress. I loved the way it picked out a shade of coral in the dress so perfectly and thought it just looked a bit different.

Fashion is quite simply all about aesthetic and visual inspiration so I have been pushing myself to create more outfit and style content this Summer. For while, I have been thinking that I spend so much time talking about what I wear and not enough time showing you all. You see, my favourite type of fashion blog is one that provides bright, beautifully bold pictures. Outfit posts, are always what draw me to certain blogs. When I stumble across a new blog, I am searching for an amazing outfit that makes me want to get to know more about the blogger. Consequently, I have decided to set myself some goals. Take my own advice. From now on, every post I create must:

  • Have an eye catching visual element (photos etc)
  • Inspire
  • Create a reaction (whether it be positive or negative)

What goals would you like to set for your blog?
Do you think Fashion blogs need a lot of pictures and visuals?
Do you think photos or text is more important?

Please let me know your thoughts on my outfit, my post and also my questions :)

the coral piece is oh so pretty! such a good choice. so is the backpack. I have been thinking about getting one for myself but we'll see.
now, your questions. my favourites are blogs that are versatile and contain photos from different fields of life. this is why I don't post only outfits but also everything else from my life. and yeah, photos are very important. I don't read blogs that have no photos. but I also don't love blogs where one outfit post includes 20 photos which look all the same actually. I enjoy versatility :) and I read the text! I know there are many bloggers who don't bother to read anything and I actually don't like that kind of attitude at all. respecting the work of others is very important!

Thank you for your lovely comment. ;)
I really like how the dress & the jacket look
together. ;D
I think for a fashion blog it is important
to have some pictures to draw attention
to it. If the pictures are interesting, people
also want to read the text & then it is important
that this one is good written as well. ;)

Hey Hailes, thanks for the comment! I absolutely love your sunglasses in that picture -- they are adorable. I'm a big fan of visuals on fashion blogs (fashion illustrations, videos, and photos), but text is important as well.
