From everything and every where. Whenever I’m out and about, I find things and people that will inspire me. I’m always on social media so it’s hard not to get inspired by other bloggers, celebs, and friends. I take what I see and basically apply it to my own personal style.

What’s the one thing in your closet that you couldn’t live without?

In your opinion, what separates a great blog from an unsuccessful blog?
I think there are several factors that play into whether a blog will be successful. Sometimes it’s pure luck in landing the right exposure by the right people. However, even with the right exposure, a blog must be consistent in its posting routine and have high quality photos. Everyone’s on the go, so your blog should be mobile friendly. Your writing should connect and make sense to your readers – please check grammar and spelling! I also believe that your blog should have a purpose, whether it is to document your style or inspire others. Without a true purpose, it’ll get lost and overlooked.
