Tell us, what is it you love most about blogging?
Having a creative outlet is one of the best things about blogging. I have also met so many amazing women across the country that have truly become some of my closest friends. The blogging community has been so inspirational and a great support system of women lifting one another up.
How would you describe your style in three words?
Where do you draw your fashion inspiration from?
I get most of my inspiration from magazines, blogs and Pinterest. But, honestly, I really just try to stay true to myself and what I feel most comfortable in.
Do you have one wardrobe item you couldn’t live without?
Three items I couldn’t live with out are my distressed denim, cut off shorts and flip flops. All are simple pieces, but ones I wear on constant rotation.
Mixing colors, patterns and prints can be tricky – what are your tips for making it all work?
My tip is that that really aren’t any rules to mixing colors and prints. As long as you feel confident in what you’re wearing, you can really pull anything off. I tend to stick with stripes, dots and florals when mixing. That is just my preference.
What is the most memorable fashion purchase you have made?
Because I am a bargain shopper and tend to stick with more affordable pieces, I really don’t have a certain moment or item that stands out. My closet and wardrobe are pretty basic.
For someone starting to build their wardrobe, what are three must-have items you would suggest to invest in?
A favorite pair of denim
If you could go on a vacation tomorrow, where would you go?
Turks & Caicos
What would be your advice to an aspiring fashion blogger?
It takes time to grow and requires work and dedication. It’s also easy to follow the masses and lose your own style identity. Stay true to yourself and your style preferences. Every trend/style isn’t made for everyone.
Just for fun, if there was a movie to be made about your life, which celebrity would you want to play you?
Sarah Michelle Gellar
