Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
I started blogging a little over two years ago when I was in my senior year of high school. I wanted a fun, creative outlet where I could share my love of fashion and travel with others with similar interests. Since then, I’ve learned so much about about social media, photography, brand collaborations, editing programs, and the art of a flatlay! Along with blogging, I’m currently going to school full time as well as working part time at various jobs. Within the last two years I’ve been blessed with many opportunities in the industry like working backstage at fashion shows for Koziak Productions, styling photo shoots with Dynamite Editorials, and becoming a personal shopping assistant at Fashion Island. In my free time, you can usually find me spending time with friends, family and my puppy, at the beach, volunteering with my church, or binge watching Netflix.
If you could sneak into anyone’s closet whose would you peek at?
Kourtney Kardashian. I absolutely adore her style and would love to take a peek at her incredible closet!
What style rule do you always follow?
When I think of style rules I think about one in particular I always heard growing up: “No White After Labor Day.” For the longest time I tried my best to follow it, but living in Southern California where the weather is practically always warm and sunshine made me realize that this rule was pretty silly (especially because “winter whites” is totally a thing!) I would say that the one rule I always follow is to be myself and wear what I’m most comfortable in.
What is your favorite quote?
“She is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future” – Proverbs 31:25.
What inspired your blog?
My passion for writing, traveling, and fashion inspired me to start a blog of my own. I had followed along with a few beauty/fashion blogs and always loved getting inspiration through them. I wanted a space where I could express myself and share my photos, experiences, and style tips with others, and thought that starting my own blog would be a fun way to do so!
Three things that are always in your purse?
My wallet, Benefit’s “Hello Flawless!” pressed powder, and peppermint Chapstick.
Where do you find inspiration for blog posts?
I’m always on Pinterest re-pinning style inspiration and following along with many other bloggers in the community. I try my best to come up with new ideas or put my own creative spin on posts so that I have a unique voice that sets me apart from other bloggers.
Best style advice you’ve ever given or received?
Don’t be afraid to try out new things or experiment with your style! My style is always evolving and I think that’s what makes it fun and personal.
What’s the one thing in your closet that you couldn’t live without?
A good pair of comfy jeggings! I have the hardest time finding jeans, so when I find a good pair that fits perfectly I wear them all the time! You can dress them up or down and it’s my favorite casual thing to wear on the weekend.
In your opinion, what separates a great blog from an unsuccessful blog?
Passion and creativity! You could have thousands of followers, but without those two things I don’t think you can have a truly successful blog. People also really take notice when you truly have a love for what you do and have a unique sense of style.
