Even though I’m a fashion blogger, I’m not necessarily up to speed on my fashion know-how and the latest trends. I rarely immerse myself in what’s on the runway, but still feel it’s important for me to stay in the loop. I thought I would start with something simple and decided to look up the top colors for fall/winter. The one that stood out to me the most was this vibrant red color that Pantone is calling Valiant Poppy.
I don’t typically focus on seasonal trends, but with the buzz of New York Fashion Week and fall approaching, what better time than now to familiarize myself with some of the upcoming looks for 2018? After scrolling through a handful of looks – pantsuits, the resurgence of the 80s, and leopard print everything – I came across western wear and thought this would be an easy trend to focus on, especially since most of the pieces can already be found in your closet or easily thrifted.Read More »
At the beginning of this year, I wrote this post about my health and fitness. I also did an Instagram story and feed more recently that was centered around the same thing so I thought I would do an update. No, I haven’t lost the weight. In fact, I’ve gained some, but I think it’s important to share what I’m going through so others who are going through similar things can feel encouraged to keep striving.
With a 9-5, fashion blog, and newly established jewelry business, I’m often asked how I manage. The truth is…I just make it work, even if that means sacrificing my house (it seriously looks like a cyclone went through it), sleep deprivation, and a neglected husband. These things are terrible, I know, but I want to be completely honest. I’m hoping to correct these bad habits over time and at the top of my list right now is to spend more time with my husband. So important!
I was recently featured in the Style Collective newsletter. Not familiar with SC? It’s literally the go-to for all things blogging and I wish it was around when I first started. It would have saved me a lot of blood, sweat, and tears! With SC, I no longer need to hop around to various sources to get what I need since it’s all in one place. The site and the podcast provide a wealth of knowledge for entrepreneurs and influencers and my favorite features include the blog, blog prep kits, and the e-courses and guides! The community element and forum topics are a huge plus too.
For the feature, I was asked to share a bit about myself and add 3 blogging tips for new bloggers. I thought these tips might be of some value to my audience and I’ve added a bonus tip just for Lace & Pearls readers. Enjoy!
