1. What made you want to blog about personal style?
I began style blogging while in marketing at a business park at a defence engineering company. Spending the day around engineers and ex-military was a very casual environment. After a while I needed some inspiration to dress beyond the too-big-for-me-feels-like-sweats slacks and cardigan I’d grown accustomed to. I found this inspiration in the personal style blogging community and I held myself accountable with the blog.
2. What mostly inspires your outfit choices?
Definitely my mood. I tend to float in a mix of feminine, preppy, modern and edgy while maintaining a dash of classic in every outfit.
3. What’s one of your favorite outfits you’ve ever posted?
Oh my, it has to be this one…
This piece has been in my closet for years. I’m not sure why I didn’t post it until this year but I’m so glad I waited because the background we lucked out on was just perfect!
4. Where do you find the best deals while out shopping? Favorite find?
When I was in Halifax I had this down to a science. Almost a year later in Montreal, I’m just starting to figure out where to go. Add in the fact I recently picked up Overdressed: The Shockingly High Price of Cheap Fashion and I’ve been thrown into a bit of a shopping flux.
That said, no matter the circumstance,
my goal is : to find good quality items on sale
my motto is : go often, buy rarely and try on everything
5. What’s one of your favorite blogs to read lately? Why?
Ring my Bell by Ashley Madekwe. I love her mix of style, jumping from classic one day to edgy the next, and her tone – such a sweetheart! Her style mix makes it a great blog to check out when searching for inspiration, especially because even though she owns beautiful pieces her outfits are usually achievable using your own closet (1, 2, 3). This is great for those days you just need a little help (no sleep, hot nights)!
