Blogger Style Icon: Jessica, of What I Wore

I am hugely excited to introduce to you this week’s Blogger Style Icon: Jessica, the girl behind the blog What I Wore and the recently published book of the same name.

Jessica is one of the original personal style bloggers who has posted her outfits every day on her tumblr blog since 2007. Her blog is a delight to “read”, her style choices make it a gorgeous record of her everyday wardrobe:

I asked Jessica:

What influences your style choices?

As crazy as it sounds, I try to rotate colors and that’s a big motivator for me. For example, if I wear a lot of olive/denim/gray for a couple days, I try to switch it up with brights.  Because I’m photographing (almost) every outfit and posting it to the blog, I try to mix it up.  But then again, my gut feeling when I look at my closet has a lot to do with what I wear too!


Where do you mainly shop for new pieces for your wardrobe?

50s housewife look: à la Betty Draper

I do a lot of online shopping, especially for bargains. I like discount e-mailers like Shop It To Me and flash sites like GILT group.  There are some great little boutiques in town (Bloomington, IN) that I like to browse at whenever I walk by too. Lately I’ve been shopping quite a bit at Anthropologie and J.Crew as well!

Who is your style icon?

MAD MEN influence

It’s ever changing!  Sometimes I’m all about the 50s housewife à la Betty Draper and other times I’m in an Annie Hall mood.  There aren’t any celebs that I follow religiously, probably because I just like to march to the beat of my own drum!

 Which blogger is your style icon? 

Most of my favorite blogs are actually lifestyle focused including Rockstar Diaries, Frecklewonder and Dear Baby.  The fashion blogs I read are gals I’m friendly with – Kendi Everyday, Cali Vintage, My Style Pill, Jen Loves Kev, Eat Sleep Wear and many many more!

Jessica is currently on a book tour promoting her brand new book, What I Wore, and hasn’t let her style crown slip as she’s toured the States:

What do you think of Jessica’s style? Which blogger is your style icon? Which blogs to you go to when you need style inspiration?
