what: fashion bakchic
why: this blog has to be one of my favorites as it is truly a one-of-a-kind blend of fashion and culture. sofia of fashion bakchic synthesizes her take on fashion with life in morocco, resulting in a blog that is about much more than just outfits. as someone who speaks french, i have particular affinity for this blog that happens to be in french, though anyone can appreciate sofia's wonderful taste and fashionable spotlight on morocco.

what: free people blog
why: the free people blog is first and foremost a lifestyle blog. whether its the weekly diy post, a vegetarian recipe, or an inspirational editorial, this blog encapsulates the free people girl and adds another element to the brand. furthermore, while this blog does feature free people product and catalog behind the scenes, it does so while never feeling overly commercial. my favorite posts on this blog are the catalog beauty tutorial videos and artist spotlights. definitely one to check every morning over coffee.
what: fashionhogger, part of hogger & co
why: a local blog that does not disappoint. smita jacob's photographs are striking as she captures nuances in action. while fashionhogger happens to be my personal favorite, it is part of hogger & co, the parent blog that is home to foodhogger and photohogger. these blogs are oozing talent and perception; the diverse triumverate insure that there will be a post for everyone.

what: simply breakfast
why: breakfast never looked this good. this blog is enough to turn even the most adamant of breakfast-skippers into breakfast loyalists. jennifer causey's whimsical blog turns food into art, a meal into an event, and shows just how far a little appreciation for what we might take for granted can go. tomorrow's cheerios will look a little yummier.
