My first of such shout-outs goes to Veronika of Girl and Closet. First and foremost, she's super sweet. And I don't just mean her style! The last year has been a big one for her, and I'm so happy for her, and honored to be her follower. She's such a warm and welcoming person, and it shines through in her blog. It also warms a little bit to see another blogger actually having to deal with winter weather - I feel like so many of my favorite blogs are based in places that didn't even see snow this year. I'll admit, I'm jealous of her seaside location, but it's a good jealously. There are two kinds, did you know?
Her style, too, is fantastic. From her use of color to the way she mixes patterns and prints, there's just so many good ideas there! She doesn't shy away from statement pieces, and she makes them work. She wears clothes comfortably and elegantly. Also, can I mention that I love the fact that she isn't afraid to wear a pair of jeans? So many bloggers are! Finally, you have to applaud her taste in shoes and hats. If there's one thing I cannot wear well, it's a hat.
It's nice, too, to tip my own hat to a fellow self-photographer. It can be a serious pain.
Please, if you haven't already, check out her wonderful, wonderful blog!
