Clothed with Grace: Blog Love and Pinned It!

Blog Love and Pinned It!

I love looking at new blogs and checking out the blogs you lovely ladies share with us on your blog rolls and daily reads lists. Link up parties can be great too, but I'll tell you, I wish there was an easier way to search blogs, like a google just for blogs, I'm surprised no ones thought of that yet, actually. How do you guys find new blogs to read? If you follow me, how did you find me (if you happen to remember)?

I'm loving this outfit today that I recreated from this pin. It's so simple in theory, but I never thought of it.  It doesn't seem like it's going to get warm anytime soon, and I'm sick of complaining about it, so I guess all I can do it rock winter looks and try to make the best of it. So there, Mother Nature.

  1. I love this - simple, stylish and cute!!! And honestly I don't spend as much time as I'd like finding new blogs - but when people comment on mine that is typically how I find other folks to check out... I wish there was more time in the day!

  2. I usually find new blogs if they leave a comment on a blog I alreayd read. Or if they commented on my blog. Love the simplicity of this outfit, so classy!

  3. This is a super cute outfit. I wouldn't have thought to pair black and brown like that, but I love what you did. I can't remember how I found you precisely, but I often will click on people who comment on other blogs. I tend to prefer real outfit blogs (like yours...and well, mine!), because I am looking for practical inspiration.

  4. Great outfit Ginny and you just gave me a new outfit idea. Thanks!!! I found your blog through a link up. I sometimes look up people that have left comments on other people's site, Pinterest has been good. I agree, there should be a google directory for blogs. It would make things much easier.

  5. I never seem to have any trouble running into blogs! Usually I'll be on one, and then I'll click on two or three of that girl's sponsor's, and then each of those girls will have a couple sponsors, or will mention another blogger in one of her posts, etc. I also try to visit the blog of everyone who comments or becomes a GFC follower (though it definitely can take a while before I get to it!). I definitely sometimes get too lazy and find myself just visiting the dozen or so girls who I'm familiar/friends with (like you!) and then refuse to hunt down any new territory LOL. But anyway!

    I remember the days where everyone said "You can't wear brown and black together!". I always thought it was a cute combination, and I remember my best friend in high school would get so annoyed when I'd pair black and brown. "You can't wear both at the same time, you have to wear one or the other or else it looks stupid!", she'd say. Well the jokes on her now, because I pair the two together constantly, and looks like you do too, and we look fab. ;)

  7. So cute! To be honest, I don't know how I found you! I assume that it was the way I usually find blogs which is clicking on the people who comment on the blogs that I follow. I have found a lot of really fun people that way!

  17. I'm fairly certain I found your blog from comments or from a link up. I can't remember! I usually find new blogs because they've guest posted or been featured on a blog I love, or I happen to click on their name from a comment they've made. I will follow the blog if their style, budget, and writing resonate with me. I like to follow "real" people - like you!!

    I love this outfit. Black with this gorgeous shade of brown just looks classy to me! I totally remember the whole "You can't wear black and brown!" mentality, but if it works for a leopard, it works for me :)
