Are you ever seduced by reading the phrase ‘Blogger Favourite’ when buying clothes?
Does something being a “Blogger Favourite” make you think the item is somehow edgier, funkier and cooler than other things you might be looking at?
Hmm… I must admit that I’m not convinced by this endorsement.
What does the term “Blogger Favourite” even mean?
So, a ‘blogger’ wore it…
Well, big wowzers!
Some bloggers are super-cool and I could quite happily wear everything they put together, but others not so much… and anyway, it’s all a question of personal taste, isn’t it?
Bloggers often wear utterly ridiculous items I wouldn’t dream of wearing (unless it was for a laugh).
Enormous sleeping-bag style coat/capes spring to mind!
Erm… no thanks.
So, just because someone who happens to write a blog wore something (probably in an editorial-style shoot) doesn’t make me want to buy it.
I know that I’m NEVER going to look like that blogger, even if I wanted to.
All I know is what I like and what I want to wear.
All of this said, it turns out that my green and blue embroidered jumper is a genuine “blogger favourite”.
Well well… who knew?!
Indeed, genuine uber-cool bloggers love this jumper.
I can’t blame them, it’s one of my favourites.
Hang on….I’m a blogger, I wear clothes and this jumper is one of my favourites!
I’m living a cliché.
Today I’m wearing this blogger-favourite green and blue embroidered jumper with a midi-length knitted skirt.
As for my ‘Blogger favourite’ jumper… it’s quite a distinctive piece so I’ve been trying to rein it in a little on the blog, but it’s been worn to death in real life.
Mostly with jeans like THIS POST.
Comfy AND cosy.
I’ve teamed this colourful duo with some khaki tights and my most comfortable boots… plus a long-line down jacket which I took off for the photographs (and almost froze!!)
Cosy, colourful and comfortable… Blogger approved!
SKIRT: Vintage (similar)
BOOTS: Clarks (old)….try these!
SCARF (in hand): A gift.
