(from Boy Howdy Daily)
Let's take a trip down memory lane for a a moment.
Back in May of last year I was sitting at home in bed, aimlessly watching t.v. and browsing Twitter. Rachel Zoe had tweeted to ask what everyone was wearing that day, and she retweeted a post from a blog. I clicked on the link, ended up on Boy Howdy Daily, and a whole new world was opened up to me. I'm pretty sure I browsed through their entire blog in that one sitting, then promptly contacted Jessica to find out whether she would want to do something similar. I had Elephants & Owls up and running before bed that night.
The idea behind BHD is simple: Three Texas girls take iPhone photos of their outfits and then post them to their blog. I love this blog because the girls are everyday people going about their day-to-day lives and there is nothing high-fashion about them. I have found plenty of inspiration from their posts. Each girl has her own distinct style, too. Jenn has an edgy, trendy look that I adore, but could probably never pull off. Leah has more of a classic style, and often looks like she stepped right out of a J. Crew catalog. I find myself copying her style for work often. Lydia is a teacher and she wears fun, often colorful outfits.
Boy Howdy Daily was my first exposure to style blogging, and I think they were the perfect blog to get me started. My favorite blogs (and I think Jessica's favorite, too) are the ones where the girls are wearing approachable, every day outfits that we can gain inspiration from. I've actually been slowly weeding out the more high-fashion blogs because I can't relate to them.
Without BHD, Elephants & Owls probably would never have come to be, so thanks ladies!
