What better way to cheer up a rainy Monday than with a little blog therapy? I peruse about a gazillion (fashion, music, design, lifestyle, etc) blogs throughout the week, and I’m constantly inspired by what I read and see.
Here’s hoping four of my favourites bring a little inspiration to your day, wherever you may be, whatever the weather!
1. Best fashion blog: Free People
In my opinion, this is one of the best fashion brand blogs out there. It’s full of office style snapshops, tons of inspiration photos, recipes, journal entries of weekend trips away, do-it-yourself projects, behind-the-scenes photos of catalogue shoots, and designer profiles. A true glimpse into an amazingly creative world.
2. Best personal style blog: Sincerely Jules
I discovered this little gem earlier this year, and since then I’ve really noticed Jules’ blog take off within the fashion community. Her daily outfit posts always leave me drooling over her amazing collection of bags and shoes. She’s also a talented thrifter, and her style is perfect to fuel my own outfit inspiration.
3. Best pop-culture blog: MTV Fora
This online fashion, beauty, and lifestyle magazine provides witty commentary on everything pop culture. I love that it’s local, and that it showcases Toronto street style, but it also takes you shopping with the MTV Canada hosts, offers beauty tutorials, and highlights super-cool musicians and bloggers.
4. Best DIY blog: Honestly…WTF
For anyone who likes to flex their creativity with a little arts and crafts, this blog has an amazing DIY section. (Sidebar: I made the hex nut bracelet, and have gotten many compliments on it.) It features everything that the two blog founders (Lauren, a stylist and Erica, an accessories designer) find inspiring, from fashion spreads to runway trends to architecture.
