3 Real Style Bloggers You Should Follow

When it comes to seeking fashion advice and idealizing the perfect outfit, female tastemakers like you and I have so many social media outlets to gain our inspiration from, namely personal style blogs. While most personal style blogs are pretty, luxurious, and intriguing, not many truly inspire beyond the latest fashion trends and wardrobe updates. I believe that a good style blog is not only fashionable, but relatable as well with less, "I'm-really-not-going-anywhere-in-this-Marc Jacobs-tutu-and-6-inch heels-but-I'm-so-fabulous-someone-MUST-see-me-in-this-outfit" blog posts. Ya know? Here are 3 conscious, lovely, and real style bloggers who will inspire you beyond their fashionable outfits and you're sure to want to jock their style.
