Where I’m based: I am born and bred out of Salt Lake City.
How long I’ve been blogging: I am approaching my one year mark of blogging! It has been one of the most fun and interesting hobbies I have ever taken on.
Blog/business basics: My blog is a fashion based journal that allows readers to get a peek inside my fashion sense and closet! Although I like to spend money on some items, I am generally a very trendy dresser, which means I like to pair more expensive handbags, jewelry, etc. with more trendy and inexpensive clothing pieces. I think this makes me very approachable and actually allows your girls to buy what I am wearing or make their own interpretation of it. I have also recently started the Trend Spin Linkup! We announce a weekly trend (stripes, florals, etc.) and then bloggers link up their blog posts or how they wore that trend. We have grown extremely fast and get hundreds of blog linkups a week which has made it so fun and exciting.
What do you enjoy most about blogging? I love the friendships I have made and also enjoy challenging myself! I now wake up every day excited to get dressed and see what combination I can create in my closet!
Guilty pleasure: Sea Salt Caramel Cupcakes and the entire Sex and the City series.
Last thing I bought: I just bought a LuLu romper and an ASOS dress to take on my Italian vacation, wa-hoo!
What does your fashion canvas look like? My canvas is always bright, colorful and full of fun and flirty pieces. I love to express my youthful personality through my clothing, so I can usually be seen in something ultra-feminine with a trendy twist!
Does your 9-5 outfits differ from your weekend ware? I do work at a small boutique marketing agency, so I have the freedom and flexibility to wear my fashion to the office. I sometimes take more risk at the office than I should, but if I am ever in a bind, I think you can never go wrong with a clean blouse, a great pencil skirt and some rocking heels.
What trends have you tried this summer? This summer I tried the crop top! I like the look, but I generally dress more conservatively, so we’ll see how long I can pull that off for.
What’s one fashion faux pas you are guilty of? Back in the day, I must admit that I used to be obsessed with the stacked platform sandals that the “Spice Girls” made oh so famous. Looking back I wish I could burn the pictures, but in the time they were all the rage and you could see all of my friends rocking them, so I guess we are all allowed to make some fashion mistakes.
