You can take the girl out of Provo, but you can't take the Provo out of the girl

Are you ever exploring new blogs and you are trying to put together pieces of the blogger's life like where they live and such through the first things you read and pictures that you see? Another one that you sometimes easily pick up on is whether or not they are Mormon. And if they are Mormon, where they are in the world. There are always the subtle hints, like references to church and modestly dressed, or the not so subtle "we believe" in the corner.

Here's a recent example.

I stumbled on a fashion blog the other day, and one of the first photos I saw was this
Here's what went through my mind: I am pretty sure I could recognize those streets anywhere. I jogged around them enough. That could be a street south of BYU campus.

Then follows this photo, where at first glance, it's the very dated architecture that BYU is famous for that catches my attention. Then I look closely and see "L. Tom Perry [special collections]" that confirms it. This is indeed a BYU/Provo blog. 
 After that, it's all so easy recognizing some of my favorite Provo locations.
 Judge me if you want, but these fries from Spark Lounge are so yummy that they would be hard to forget.  And of course, the photoshoots at the H-FAC, and other Provo locations.
Then I give myself a pat on the back for being so smart and observant. It's like a game or a scavenger hunt. I'm sure I'm not the only one that does this!

Anyway, that fashion blog is actually pretty good too. As in, some girls that actually have good Mormon/BYU style. Those of you that went to BYU know that sometimes this is not always the case.
The blog is Awkward Girls. Enjoy.


  1. I did the same thing when I came across this cute fashion blog of this mormon mom of three living in Seattle. It was the cutest blog, and I didn't pin it and now I can't find it! You would love it too because she's petite like you. If I find it, I will send you the link!

  2. I found the blog. :)

  3. Small world, one of the girls is my friend's little sister. ha ha Gotta love Provo!
