OOTD: Fashion Blogger Chic.

Oh, my sweet BChan. Over my time at b&i, I've come to think of Barrie as my little sister. We tease, we understand, we collaborate. We even have a name - Channa - that binds us, as if we were a celebrity couple (I like to think that we are in our own way). Barrie is sassy in the best possible way and will often declare "I look good today," when she is particularly killing it in the outfit department. This is usually a precursor to an OOTD shoot, and an Instagram capture for her personal account --> @onequirkypeach. Which, for the record, features a lot of uncredited photos by me. ;-) I call this look "fashion blogger chic." All the classic elements of a Pinterest-perfect ensemble are present: trendy print worn with an otherwise neutral palate as to not overwhelm a small frame/the eyes of onlookers, high socks peeking out over broken-in flat boots, a standout accessory, and not too-messy-not-too-styled hair. Girl's got it all plus a thigh gap. Bow down. Now, let's check out these fashion blogger-worthy poses. Werk/werq/WORK, Barrie!

I did mention above that we like to tease each other, so Barrie knows that this post that pretty much pokes fun at bloggers at her expense, is all in jest. Good thing I now control OOTD land here on the blog, or I'd definitely fear retaliation....

Until next time,
