In the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the chance to talk with a few new bloggers, and it made me think a lot about the bloggers I read when I first started blogging and the year or so after. Many of those blogs that were/are hugely inspirational to me are still up and running with new content, and other ones are no longer or not often updated or have changed direction or moved over to other platforms like Instagram. Some haven’t blogged since 2012, and others have posts from just a few months ago. This post is all about the blogs that may no longer be updated or rarely updated. All of the following 6 have wonderfully rich archives with outfit inspiration that can serve you today. I hope you’ll check out these blogs that really played a role into who I am as a fashion blogger and take a long good look through their archives.

A Well-Rounded Venture

awellroundedventureNicole is probably the most influential blogger I ever had contact with. She was one of the first to talk with me, and I related to her so well. We met up in the summer of 2012 to go to FFFWeek together. It was a great time (even though I was a little uptight because the city scared me haha). Check out her Instagram account as well.
