If you're drawn to feminine styles and silhouettes, then you're going to love Delaney, a sweet, 16-year-old blogger from a small town in central New York.
She shares her uber girly outfits on Instagram @delaneybryana, and her photos are so good, you'd never know she taps her 11-year-old sister to snap her pics, usually in less than five minutes.
Her mantra is all about living life to the fullest (while looking stylish and dressing the part, of course) and keeping her style and beauty routines simple and elegant. Below, find out what Delaney shared with us, and make sure to follow along for more sweet styles.

1. What's the one moment that made you obsessed with style?
I've loved dressing up ever since I can remember. I remember having a whole chest full of dresses and dress up clothes as a little girl, and I used to play in it every day. I truly believe that when you look good, you feel good, so I love dressing up because it makes me feel good about myself and I'm much more confident.
2. Tell us about your style. Who or what inspires it?
My style is very simple and girly. I love wearing dresses and I wear them as often as possible, but with the horrible winters in central New York, it makes that a little difficult. I'd say my style inspiration is Blake Lively.
3. Who takes your photos? How long is an average 'photoshoot'?
Almost all of my photos are actually taken by my 11-year-old sister. I don't make her take my photo for too long, so it usually takes less than five minutes for me to get a perfect Instagram picture, and it's actually often the first picture she takes [laughs].
4. What's your go-to outfit when you're in a rush?
"A comfy dress and a pair of sandals in the summer, and in the winter usually a comfy sweater, a pair of jeans, and a pair of boots."
5. What's the best piece of advice you've been given, and from whom?
"Enjoy every minute of life. Don't wish yourself to the next milestone, enjoy getting to it. This advice was given to me by my band teacher and one of my greatest mentors."
6. What's your favorite piece of clothing in your closet and why?
"I have two that I can't choose between—my brown leather jacket and my sparkly shoes. I love my leather jacket because it goes with almost anything and can add so much to a simple dress. I love my sparkly shoes because they're so fun and they add such a cool element to a simple T-shirt with jeans!"
7. What's one thing you want everyone to know about you?
"One thing I don't think people realize is that I wear dresses so much because I absolutely hate wearing pants. I'm not sure exactly why, but I cannot stand wearing a pair of pants, so that's why I usually opt for a comfy dress."
8. What have you learned about blogging that you'd share with other bloggers or aspiring bloggers?
Don't worry about being judged, just do what you want to do. Also consistency is key!
9. What is your current skincare routine?
"I do the same thing morning and night and it's super simple. I wash my face with Vanicream Gentle Facial Cleanser. This is the only face wash I've found that doesn't break out my extremely sensitive skin, and I love it. Then, after I wash my face I moisturize with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer, and if I have a pimple or feel one coming in, I use the Mario Badescu drying lotion. I also use the Mario Badescu sprays if my skin feels extra dry, and I love them all."
10. What's your go-to makeup look?
"I actually don't wear makeup very often other than mascara. But when I do, I use: Revlon Colorstay Foundation in the shade 24, Physicians Formula butter bronzer, Elf highlighter, NYX eyebrow pencil, Neutrogena waterproof mascara, and an EOS lip balm (the yellow one is my favorite)."
