I have been blogging for a little while now and I've noticed something. First, I will preface this post with some facts. I pretty much treat this thing like I did my private Livejournal. The truth of the matter is not that many people read this. I've been wanting to address this for awhile but I was afraid that maybe I may come off as offensive, however, I am not trying to be at all. Here goes...
In my time spent searching through the blogger hemisphere I have come across some pretty rad ladies to follow. When I stumble or look for a blog I usually am interested in fashion (especially on a bargain), design, and DIY tutorials and such. Basic inspiration type stuff. I have found some really great ones that I am loyal to. I started noticing a strange trend amongst the blogs I was most attracted to. Most the ladies are LDS or Mormon which ever! They have the best style (that includes their writing style)! Adorable little families and great eye for design.
One of the first people I started to bug about how they have such a great eye was my ex boyfriend Aaron (He never updates his blog but I figured I'd link him anyway) was raised LDS. He said "its part taught while they were young and part just plain ol good taste!" I just wish they would share! Come on, puuuhhleeease!!? These girls are freaking mavericks at layering (when your a Jackie who doesn't feel very comfy showing a ton of skin but still wants some pizazz, you can't help but love this!). None of these girls actually has a blog that shares the secret tips and knowledge that is the, as Aaron said best "cute mormon girl" style.
Has anyone else noticed that? I am sure we have all heard of Rock Star Diaries to name one. Who doesn't love the Boob Nazi! Hilarious! Or my most recent find Steoffrey. An adorable young photographer duo with the cutest baby (I wont let Shane hear me say that). Of course I love how the blog Sensibly Styled gives us a little help on how to put together outfits or where to find great pieces. I still would enjoy a blog that really breaks it down for the simpler of minds like mine. There is also Chloe (and her husband and cute dog Moses) who has been crafting and redecorating her adorable home lately. I would also rate her in there with bloggers who have made me LOL. Sure there are non LDS peeps that dress just fine. I am just noticing an adorable trend.
Do any of you out there follow these blogs? What are your thoughts?
