fashion spotlight-Recovered

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
I’m a senior at the University of Oklahoma studying public relations. I grew up in Houston, Texas with a love for fashion and New York City. After my sophomore year, I interned at Marc Fisher Footwear LLC in New York and this year I’m interning at Cosmopolitan and Seventeen Magazine! I love all things bright-especially pink-and I’m super girly!

If you could sneak into anyone’s closet whose would you peek at?
Blake Lively! Maybe more so Serena Van Der Woodsen, but she always looks effortlessly chic no matter what.

What style rule do you always follow?
Staying true to yourself but up to date on trends!

What is your favorite quote?
“Sometimes we need to stop analysing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want, and just see what happens” Carrie Bradshaw

What inspired your blog?
I actually started it as a resume booster and hated it in the beginning. It was more of a DIY kind of thing, but now I use it as a creative outlet to keep up to date on fashion trends when I’m not necessarily studying it at school everyday.

Three things that are always in your purse?
EOS Chapstick, metro card, iPhone charger

Where do you find inspiration for blog posts?
I love other bloggers, but I am obsessed with Mckenna Bleu and her bright, whimsical style. The blogging community is a great place to find inspiration!

Best style advice you’ve ever given or received?
Find your niche and stick with it. For me, I love pink so as I’ve gotten older I try to incorporate it into my daily outfits whether it’s something as simple as a bracelet to something as out there as a neon pink backless dress.

What’s the one thing in your closet that you couldn’t live without?
My Chanel! It was my first designer purse my parents bought me and it’s my prized possession.

In your opinion, what separates a great blog from an unsuccessful blog?
I wouldn’t say any blog is unsuccessful, the point of having a blog is to express your personal interests! However, blogging is all about content and consistency so it’s important to keep posting consistent and posting beautiful content!

Subtle but Stylish
If you still aren’t sure about all of the prints, go very subtle with a simple tribal print statement piece such as a headband or shoes! Small touches of tribal print are a great way to get on board with the trend! We love Cara Delevigne’s tribal headband!
