These Are the Blogs That I Still Read Daily

Daily Fashion and Lifestyle Blogs to Follow

What I’m about to say won’t come as a shock to anyone… I miss the good old days of blogging. I used to check in with at least 10 or 15 fashion and lifestyle blogs per day, in the period between 2008 and 2012. But now it’s rare to find a blogger who posts consistently – let alone daily – and I miss my morning fix!

I’ve seen a few people state that “2019 will be the year of the blog”. But, realistically, I don’t think that’s going to happen unless two things happen: 1) Digital content creators start blogging multiple times a week, once again. And 2) Content consumers start supporting bloggers by actually reading their posts – not just looking at their Instagram feeds.

So if you’re also craving a return to longform digital content, keep reading to discover the three blogs that I still visit on a daily basis. If they’re not already on your list check them out asap. And if you’re already reading them all, let me know your favourite, consistently-updated blogs in the comments section below. I’m desperate to find some new daily reads…

Daily Fashion and Lifestyle Blogs

Jess Ann Kirby

I followed New England based blogger Jess Ann Kirby on Instagram long before I actually checked out her site. And what a fool I was. Her Insta is gorgeous, but her namesake blog offers 10x the inspiration. Jess posts daily (or every-other-day, at the least), and shares a mix of fashion, travel and home decor content.

I love the way Jess puts outfits together (she’s great at styling basics, like denim shorts, jean jackets, cashmere knits etc), and I’ve found heaps of inspiration in her home renovation posts.

A Cup of Jo

It’s no secret that I’m OBSESSED with the lifestyle blog A Cup of Jo. Founded by journalist Joanna Goddard in 2007, A Cup of Jo now has a team of writers, is updated multiple times a day (!!!) and is visited by over 1 million adoring readers each month.

I love the vast mix of content on A Cup of Jo – think style, home design, motherhood, relationships, TV and book recommendations. And whilst Joanna is still the most prominent voice at A Cup of Jo, I love following the work of their features editor, Caroline Donofrio [right].

Grace Attwood The Stripe

The Stripe

Brooklyn-based blogger Grace Attwood produces an insane amount of content each week. She posts to her blog daily, shares on Instagram and Instagram Stories 24/7, and also co-hosts a weekly podcast.

I’m sure Grace’s stress levels are constantly high, but I’m so grateful for the work she puts in because I LOVE having a new blog post to read every morning. The Stripe provides a mix of fashion and beauty content, along with a smattering of dating and travel posts, plus lots of great book recommendations (naturally these features are my favourites).


What I look for in a blog: A clear point of view. Personality and an authentic tone of voice. Consistent content (at least 3 new posts per week). Inspirational features that are grounded in reality (I don’t want to see a different $1,800 handbag every day of the week).

    Oh absolutely! I still carve out a portion of time each lunch break or in my evening to solely read blogs and it’s upsetting that week on week, that portion of time gets shorter. I love writing first and foremost – plus my journalism graduate status means I’m constantly seeking out the editorial angle! – so still produce 3/4 posts weekly. Here’s hoping there’s a bit of a shift back, or at least a balance, between blogging and Instagram.

    I love all of those blogs and check them all the time. I used to post a lot but since I’ve been in and out of jobs my free time has been a bit confusing and now I only post once a week but I’d love to go back to posting more, I love it when blogs I love do it. One thing I miss is the lengthy posts. Nowadays I see a lot of posts that are just pictures and it can get so repetitive and uninteresting, I wished people would write more because I love commenting and engaging but if the posts consist of pictures only, what am I supposed to say?

    • Ella Gregory says:

      Hi Marta. Thanks so much for your comment. I think you’ve raised so many interesting points – especially about the length of posts. I wouldn’t be surprised if some bloggers have started doing that because they’re worried people’s attention spans are a lot smaller now, thanks to Instagram?

  3. Grace Atwood says:

    Oh my gosh this is SO NICE!! Thank you so much for the high praise, Ella (Cup of Jo and Jess Kirby’s blog are two of my favs too.)

  4. Jess says:

    Wow! I am SO flattered. I count Grace and Cup of Jo as two of my regular reads so I am beyond honored to be included in your round-up alongside both of them. Thank you so much Ella. You made my day. xx

  5. Ella Gregory says:

    You’re welcome Grace! Addicted to your content x

    I actually read daisybutter, the first person who commented, Michelle’s blog is excellent. Cupcakes and Cashmere is another fantastic blog that posts daily. I’m always on the look out for new blogs to read so will definitely be checking these out. I’m also a blogger and am aiming to increase my posts per week. Thanks for sharing these lovefromlisa.com

    • Ella Gregory says:

      I love Cupcakes and Cashmere too! Although I don’t read it as frequently now that Emily doesn’t write as much (it’s her voice that I’ve always loved the most). And that’s amazing that you’re planning to blog more this year! xxx

    • Michelle says:

      Ah hello Lisa! Thanks for supporting my blog (: And so nice to connect over a mutual favourite read!
