Blair’s fairytale-inspired all red outfit shoot may be the most impractical outfit ever considering its snowy location, but is it worth it? Good lord, yes.

Do you know your style personality? by Donna is a fantastic read – and very insightful. She knew more about my style than I knew myself.

Greetje’s jeans dress over trousers is all sorts of stylish, but with those golden boots? Total urban chic.

If you’re after some serious tips on how to get a minimal Instagram feed, Amanda’s post is for you – or simply drool over her Scandi-cool Instagram pictures (and here’s part two).

If you’re looking to find your own unique style, top fashion blogger Sylvia of 40+ Style runs an e-course “21 Steps to a More Stylish You” to help you feel confident, beautiful and stylish. (Read the reviews, it sounds amazing.)

The rules of Instagram captions, according to fashion experts (actually quite entertaining and brief, much like one of the tips they’ve given).

The indoor fort built by Kelsey and Jake during Snowmaggedon is seriously the most gorgeous, romantic thing I’ve ever seen.

You will LOVE this entertaining YouTube channel: Mother Pukka, a hilarious 30-something mother “parenting the s**t out of life”. Especially great for parents and non-parents alike.

    Ok I'm so glad you mentioned that red dress Blaire put on Atlantic Pacific — can I come to the UK so you and I can go out to a castle and recreate this shoot?

    Because it's sheer magic!

    I really liked Mother Pukka and Blair just blew me away. I mean that dress!! The shoes, the background. How gorgeous can a post get? I would never have put the skirt of that dress in the snow. Never.
    And thank you so much for featuring me. I didn't even know you visited my blog? Or saw me on IG. I am smitten.

      Of course I visit your blog, Greetje – surely you know that!! I know I don't leave comments very often but I'm subscribed to you everywhere…! I guess it's why I do so much on social and round up posts like these, to give a shout out to all the bloggers I love (well, I do as much as I can fit in, anyway)! And I'm so pleased you're pleased, the outfit was wonderful :))
