Tell us, what is it you love most about blogging?
I love all the people I get to connect with! I have made some great friends through blogging, like Bloggers Closet founder, Lauren. And I love talking with my readers via email. When I get an email form someone who reads my blog, it makes my day.
How would you describe your style in three words?
Polished, Relaxed, and Classic
Where do you draw your fashion inspiration from?
I get fashion inspiration from everywhere. I read blogs & magazines, search Pinterest, and people watch when I’m running errands. I even get inspired by color combos I see in nature or home decor.
Do you have one wardrobe item you couldn’t live without?
My dark wash skinny jeans. I love them! If I could wear them every second of every day, I would. Unfortunately, they need to be washed every once in a while so I can’t wear them 24/7.
Mixing colors, patterns and prints can be tricky – what are your tips for making it all work?
The best tip I have for mixing patterns and prints is to stick to the same color pallet. Stripes look amazing with just about every print out there so they are always my go-to. When print mixing, make sure one print is smaller than the other. If both prints are big and bold, they will compete with each other for attention.
What is the most memorable fashion purchase you have made?
I bought an amazing pair of real leather cognac boots and have worn them each winter for the last 5 years and they are still in great shape. The best part is that I scored them on major sale at Marshalls for only $65!
For someone starting to build their wardrobe, what are three must-have items you would suggest to invest in?
A nice white blouse, a great pair of dark wash jeans, and a black moto jacket. Those are the three pieces I can’t live without. I’ve invested in all three and it has paid off.
If you could go on a vacation tomorrow, where would you go?
I would go wherever I can swim with a manatee. They are my favorite animal and it has always been my dream to swim with one. I’d also love to go to the Maldive Islands, Scotland, New Zealand, Hawaii, and the Carolina’s.
What would be your advice to an aspiring fashion blogger?
My advice is to be yourself. You readers want to see the real you so give them that. Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers because that will only stress you out and bring you down. Trust me, I’ve been there. Enjoy the blogging world and you will be happy.
Just for fun, if there was a movie to be made about your life, which celebrity would you want to play you?
I would want Emma Stone to play me. I’ve recently decided she’s my favorite celebrity and I just love her! She’s seems so down-to-earth and funny. She’s so gorgeous. Plus, she can beat Jimmy Fallon in a lip syncing contest with her amazing rapping skills. A girl after my own heart.
