Do you love summer fashions and trends? I am still getting used to them, believe it or not! I grew up in a place cool enough to need a sweater and long pants at night in the summer, so I never really embraced the whole summer clothes thing. Sure, I had a couple pairs of shorts and sundresses, but there were afternoons in the summer when it was too cold to wear them. And come late August, it was already time to tuck my summer clothes away for nine long months.
Now that I live in a warmer area, I have to take summer fashion more seriously. I have no choice! It’s practically “summer” for half the year. And I learned quickly that shorts and a t-shirt isn’t going to cut it for every occasion. I’m slowly learning about summery shoes, skirts, and dresses. And you know what? I like them! I’m happier wearing some fun summer clothes when I know I won’t be cold in them. (Although I do always carry a sweater for places where they crank the A/C.)
My new love of summer fashion inspired my latest quiz, What’s Your Summer Style?. And unlike many fashion quizzes, this one is appropriate for all the guys and ladies reading. I didn’t want to leave anyone out! Let me know what you think of your result.
Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):
Do you consider yourself a fashionable person? You don’t have to be up on the latest trends to rock you own amazing style! Take my latest quiz to find out what your fashion strengths are: What Sort of Fashionable Are You?
(By the way, either men or women can take this test, so don’t be shy guys!)

Do you love jeans? They have always been a staple for me, and the busier my life gets, the more often I wear them. I also think that jeans have gotten much better over the years – both with how flattering they look and how high quality they are. I don’t know if I’ve ever loved jeans more than I do now (skinny, dark wash please!). I know people say athleisure is the new trend, but athletic wear is just not durable enough for my lifestyle!
If you are a fellow jeans quiz, then you should take my quiz: What Kind of Jeans Are You? This simple quiz will let you know if you are skinny, flare, or straight leg jeans. All equally stylish options these days, so which one is best for you? This test will let you know!
I say thank goodness for makeup! I love the way a little (or a lot) of makeup can complete my look. I know it’s a trend right now to go free, and more power to those people, but that’s never going to be me. I need at least a little lipstick to start the day, and I personally love buying new makeup and trying new shades and techniques.
Do you love handbags? I have to say that I am into them, although I certainly don’t have the budget to be a high end handbag collector. That’s okay – I buy my handbags on sale and really treasure each one. I love how the right handbag can give an outfit that pop of color or personality that it needs. A neutral outfit may be sort of boring, but not if you carry a big, bright bag with it!
For a long time, I never got the obsession that some people have with handbags, but I do understand it better the more I enjoy fashion. Now I may not be part of the handbag obsession club (the price tag of admission alone keeps me out), but I do appreciate a nice handbag when I see one out in the world.
Sometimes we agonize over the smallest details in our lives… like accessories. It may seem silly to wonder what watch or shoes to wear, but these little details say a lot about you. This is why shopping can be full of such highs and lows. We hate the low of needing something but not finding anything that works with our style. But when we find an item (like a handbag) that is just our style, it is the most amazing high!
Any woman would argue that the handbag she carries says a lot about her, and that was the inspiration for my new quiz: The Handbag Test You simply pick the handbag you like best, and then you learn a little about your personality.
Take The Handbag Test, and let me know what you think. Does the outcome you get describe your style well? Comment below and let me know. I’d also love to hear about your favorite handbag – what color is it?
One of the things I like best about traveling is how each city has its own fashion style. In my opinion, fashion gives each city, region, and country a real sense of place. No matter what I think is chic and modern, just traveling a little ways will change my conception of what’s in style. LA is fun, summery, and a little bit rocker. Paris is chic, timeless, and effortless. New York City is daring but classic and put together. My city, Austin, is casual, colorful, vintage, and quite bohemian.
Have you noticed that different cities have different fashion vibes? For this reason, I think it’s so fun to go shopping when I travel. It’s the best way to make sure I’ve got a few items in my closet that no one else in my home city has. If I won the lottery, I would love to travel the world shopping in little boutiques and flea markets. Since I haven’t won the lottery, I’ll do the next best thing and write quizzes 🙂
I feel like I simply fit in better in some cities than others. Have you ever felt this way too? I’ve had the experience of landing in a new city and feeling like I was dressed like an alien! My laid back vibe does well in Austin, but I also love the preppy, dressed up look of New England. And I always will wish that I could dress like (and live like) a Parisian. What about you? Take my newest quiz, What’s Your Fashion City? You never know… this quiz might inspire you to travel. Or at least shop!
Give What’s Your Fashion City? a go, and let me know what you think. Does this quiz capture your fashion style? What fashion city did you get? Comment below and let me know.
