Guest Post: Tea and Sequins

Hello from Sevilla!!  Today the agenda includes a flamenco show and lots of tapas, so basically the perfect day.  Today I have a guest post for you from Kaitlin at Tea and Sequins.  I love Katilin's bright and fun style, so much so that we own several of the same pieces ;)  Take it away, Kaitlin! 

Hi everyone! I'm Kaitlin, and I blog over at Tea and Sequins. I'm so excited to be guest posting here at Kristina Does The Internets while she's on her amazing European getaway. Kristina is a fellow Chicago girl so I love seeing how she handles the challenges of city life dressing and our constantly changing weather. 

I originally started my blog as an escape from the daily grind of grad school. I just finished up my degree in occupational therapy, and, while I love it, I needed a creative escape. I'd stumbled upon a few blogs while on Pinterest and thought "Hey, I think I can do that." I loved how there were so many "normal" girls wearing totally relatable style on a realistic budget! Cut to a year later and I truly love this little hobby. I've met some awesome people (like Kristina!) while expanding my style and wardrobe. 

I also wanted to start a blog in order to show other girls that they don't need an "ideal" body to look great. I somehow ended up with tons of friends who are 5'2 and 110lbs. Needless to say, we don't share many clothes. It's taken a long time (and, admittedly, it's always a work in progress), but I'm finally comfortable working with what I've got and dressing it to my best ability. Whether you're really tall, curvy, flat-chested, etc- there's something out there that works! Maybe you can get some inspiration from my blog, or one of the hundreds of others filled with girls of all body types!

My newest venture is developing a budget. Oy. You can read all about that here. Being a twentysomething (or, really, anysomething) can be tricky. It's been really helpful to get financial tips from fellow shopping-lovers on how they make it work. I love having this little corner of the internet where I can be myself, meet great people, and get some guidance!
