The August Diaries tagline says it all. “Kindness is always fashionable.” – amelia e. barr
Jill’s style is also completely relatable. She always looks so pulled together yet her style is never impossible to achieve. Her blog is a must-read embodiment of the gal who approaches personal style with a sense of honesty, always staying true to her fashion POV while remaining relevant. She describes her style as European chic meets west coast sophistication. We might add in laid back luxe and modern, depending on her OOTD.

While style bloggers are aplenty, The August Diaries has real staying power. She’s honest and genuine with her readers, letting them know what’s going on in her life. This is how she builds personal connections with her community. And it’s these bits of honesty that are so relatable. Case in point: Jill shared with her readers why her blog went on hiatus and they were incredibly supportive. As she said to me – and in her post – if you aren’t feeling it, your readers will sense that. So, although we typically visit style blogs for outfit inspiration, establishing that human connection with the writer means they stay on our blog roll a whole lot longer. Like I said, serious staying power.
