Welcome to Wear Abouts!


Outfit Details: Blazer-Thrifted The Limited, Button Up-Loft, Skirt-Forever 21, Socks-Hue via Lord and Taylor, Boots- Dolce Vita for Target, Hat-Gifted (Thanks Mrs. Lanigan!), Bracelets–Blue and Purple-Vintage and DIY’d, Friendship Bracelet-Ettika (from a giveaway), Necklace-Vintage (My grandma’s), Rings–With Crystals-Old Navy, Solid Gold-colored-DIY, Nails–Sally Hansen Xtreme Nails “White On”

When I first set my eyes upon a fashion blog, I couldn’t even fathom what I would be getting into. I’d never heard of NY Fashion Week, I didn’t really understand the concept of a blog, and I never thought I would be starting one of my own. But with my first glimpse of raw, run-by-real-girl style, I realized magazines were nothing compared to this. I was far from alone in my love of shopping and looking good when I left my house everyday. After that, I would wake each morning and I would pour over my favorite blogs, admiring and getting inspired by what I saw. My blog roll grew bigger—I craved seeing the where (or wear) abouts of girls and women like me from all over the world. And then it dawned on me that if I loved seeing everyone else’s style so much, maybe they would like to see mine! I knew I’d certainly love to have a place on the web to call home, a creative outlet to express not only my style but my writing, a place where I could document the girl I was growing up to be. Sure, it’s not really a “glimpse into my soul”. But fashion is part of what makes me ME.

Don’t get me wrong: I’m no Natalie, and I’m certainly no Rumi. But I am Rory. And I don’t want to be anyone else but me. My style is my own and though not as extravagant or expensive as others, it is unique. I’d love to have you with me on this blogging journey, in which I hope to grow thru my style and grow as a person. If you follow or if you don’t, if you’re excited or if you’re not, if this world of mine means something or has no effect on you at all, this is going to be a place where I share with you something (hopefully) inspiring that I can call my own. Whether it be my outfits, my writing, my style, or my life; it will be, simply put, me.Welcome to Wear Abouts.

  33. This is a really good outfit! You look lovely! It was fun to read too, you admitting that you had never heard about NYFW and all =) My mother works in the fashion industry and she dreamed of me being a model.. Almost fortunately I'm not tall enough, otherwise the pressure would be on! 
    Great hat! But you might want to consider losing the fabric bracelets?
    Next (but not necessarily today) I'm going to post about how to do your nails =)
    Come check it out!

  34. This outfit is so effortlessly chic! It's amazing what a tailored blazer and a metallic garment can do for an outfit. I am also really into hats and I wish more people wore them to add a vintage touch to their outfits. All in all our outfit is very beautiful!
