OOTD - When Bloggers Influence Bloggers

I first noticed these rose-coloured pants on Julia of Gal Meets Glam - I thought that they were beautiful, and moved on with my life.  Then, I see the same gorgeous pink pants on Kaylee of The Bondielocks - all of a sudden, I can't get the pants out of my mind. Fast forward a few days when Sabrina of My Miaou is wearing the same pants and all of a sudden owning these pink pants becomes a life mission for me. I need to have them.  This is a classic example of how I am influenced by other bloggers, and I'm not mad about it.  Bloggers influencing bloggers - it's a thing!

Well Julia, Kaylee and Sabrina all have great taste - these pants are absolutely incredible! Not only is the dark-pink colour completely on-season and flattering, but the shape is such a fun retro throwback. I love how a wide-leg pant paired with heels can make you look so tall. Paired with my favourite blush pink blouse, this is my kind of outfit.

I am absolutely smitten with the arc bag from Cult Gaia. This recent score is a another case of bloggers influencing bloggers; the straw bag has been making the rounds on Instagram and I had to have it!  I love the shape of the bag, and how it feels in the hands. Although I purchased the small size, the bag is large enough to fit all of my essentials and then some. I can't wait until the weather starts to warm up so that I can wear this unique find more often.

What do you guys think?  Is there an item that you just had to have after seeing it on bloggers?  Which bloggers do you draw the most influence from? Let me know!

I first saw them on Julia and thought they were beautiful but lets be real, what doesn't she own that's beautiful. Then I saw them on Kaylee and hadddd to have them. Love bloggers influencing bloggers. Women support other women's purchasing needs lol.

  4. Those pants were made for you! Glad you were able to track them down. When it comes to being influenced by bloggers.... I'm guilty of so many purchases...I guess the biggest would be the famous white Joe Fresh dress from last summer that I tracked down and altered lol!

  5. UM YES! I am so often influenced by other bloggers. There's no denying the power of influencer marketing. If it works on the "influncERS," it's GOT to be a thing, right?!
