Hey there everyone, welcome to another “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” link up. My second “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” link up for the new blog was last Tuesday and I had 42 link ups, whoa! It was also the first link up to have a guest co-host (thanks Teresa) so thank you for posting and if you missed it you can refer back to it here. I choose my favorite five to feature today and I will choose another five to feature next Tuesday as well. With so many people linking up I actually prayed about taking on guest co-hosts and so far I am glad I went with this decision as 42 or more is quite a lot to keep up with but I am doing it anyway because I love you all. If you would like to guest co-host just e-mail me at [email protected] as I have open slots.
Today’s link up is special because not only do I get to feature you and read your posts but because I can’t wait to introduce you to this weeks guest co-host Carrie of curlycraftymom.com. I have known Carrie for quite some time. She has been a faithful linker to “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” and been featured numerous times on this link up. I love being inspired by her daily as she is very creative with her outfits and DIY projects. You can also link up to her link up called “Thursday Fashion Files” where she hosts it alongside Jill of dousedinpink.blogspot.com (another favorite blogger) and she offers a DIY/craft link up party called Motivational Mondays. I am an avid linker to their linker so I say you better link to theirs too. Hey, it is all about showing blog linker love and spreading it right?

Now on to the featured five from last week and link up:
Shauna looks so lovely in this yellow citrusy dress. I love the added white heels and purse. She inspired me to consider adding more “citrus” colors and colorful heels to my wardrobe, plus I love this girls style any day. You can find out more about this look here.
Alena actually inspired me on how to choose my outfit for this past Thursday (on my sons Birthday). I grabbed a patterns short sleeve tee, black flats and coated denim black skinny jeans. Thanks Alena for inspiring me on how to style black skinny jeans recently. You can check out the look here.
Iris inspired me with her lovely floral blouse with a pink suit attire. Iris is new to the link up but while checking out her blog I loved her business or work wear style creations. You can check out this particular post here.
Jennie inspired me with her weightloss and healthy eating before and after outfit post. Jennie has been one of those bloggers that is down to earth and real and so I have been following her weight loss journey (along with lovely outfits) and I can say I am quite proud of her and she inspires me to continue to eat better (as I try). Way to go Jennie on your new healthy lifestyle. You can read her post here.
Jordan is new to the link up but while checking out her blog I am impressed with the many outfits she herself has styled and many being that no one can recreate as it is her personal style but she gives AWESOME and helpful tips on how to create similar looks. For this particular look it was how to downplay an all monochromatic look. Check it out here.
