Hey y’all! Long time, no blog lol. Well, it’s actually only been a week… But I’ve been on top of blogging lately so a week has felt like forever. If you haven’t seen on Instagram, I was on a trip over the weekend with Sailor-Sailor! Head over to my Instagram story highlights titled “Sailor-Sailor” to check out fun moments from the weekend.
P.S. I’m also doing a giveaway with them and some other influencers, so be sure to check that out over there as well!
Today’s blog post is a bit different than most; I’m writing something that I feel is a little more personal. I’ve been on a journey of discovering my personal style over the past few years, and I’m finally realizing how I want to present myself visually and what would be helpful to achieve the look I want.
As the title suggests, I’ve decided to make an effort to step away from fast fashion. If you don’t know what that means, the Google definition is, “Inexpensive clothing produced rapidly by mass-market retailers in response to the latest trends.”
Hey y’all! I am so excited for today’s post because it’s all about black watch plaid! Y’all may already know I am all about that plaid life, especially during the fall and winter. Some people see black watch as more of a holiday print, but I personally think it’s a great print that can transition from fall to winter And unlike tartan plaid, you can wear it before and after Christmas!
Perhaps my love of plaid stems from going to private school most of my life; I wore uniforms from 3rd grade on. My elementary school had us wear a hunter plaid print and in high school we wore none other than black watch, so there’s definitely a sweet spot in my heart lol.
There are so many stores that have great black watch pieces out right now and I’m excited to share them with y’all! I’m also excited to include some men’s pieces in this post. The best part about holiday plaids is that you know year after year they will be in style! So you may want to consider investing in a timeless piece.
Hey y’all! Today I am posting my highly requested men’s gift guide! Whenever I asked who y’all were struggling to shop for, this was the #1 answer. Whether it’s your boyfriend, husband, brother, or father, I’m here to help you out. Unfortunately I cannot provide the answer to one of the world’s biggest mysteries, “Why are men so hard to shop for?” What do you get the man who has everything? What do you get the man who claims he doesn’t want anything? Hopefully I can spark some inspiration for you all today! If you want some more insight, be sure to read my gift guides from 2018!
While I know a variety of people would enjoy these gifts – both men and women – this is based off of the men in my life and what I might get them this holiday season. I can’t give names though since my dad and boyfriend read my blog regularly lol. But let’s get into it!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know I didn’t post last week with no warning, sorry! But I am back this new year with ideas pouring out of my body and I am ready to write. Today on my Instagram, @thenorthernprepster, I asked what y’all wanted to see for my first blog post of 2019. And y’all chose this!
