Have you always had a fondness for fashion? What compelled you to begin blogging?
Yes – absolutely! As soon as I could drive myself to the mall, I worked two jobs simultaneously (one at a shoe store and one at a clothing store). You could say I was well on my way to building an expansive wardrobe of clothes and shoes within a few months! I started blogging because work has me thinking/writing/speaking/acting seriously all of the time. Blogging has become sort of my remedy, and most importantly, my creative outlet!
Describe your style in a few words.
Oh, this is far too easy! Nine-to-Five Chic.

To what / where do you turn for inspiration?
I turn to the amazing fashion bloggers I follow, as well as fashion magazines. Inspiration is truly everywhere; you just have to look around, ﬁnd it, and make it your own.
Are you longing to delve into any speciﬁc summer trends?
I’m having a lot of fun with color this year! It is amazing to experience the effect it can have on your outlook – bright colors really do make you feel more cheerful!
What is your go-to item for an instant boost of conﬁdence?
For instant conﬁdence, I turn to leopard prints. There’s no quicker way to feeling like you can take over the world!
