Sit Down Style Session: Laura

Jenn and I are excited to present you with this month’s Sit-Down Style Session featured blogger:  Laura from I do deClaire.  Laura has such a great sense of style and one of the most fantastic blogs out there.  She is incredibly beautiful, totally fashion forward and a complete sweetheart.  Without further ado here she is.
 
1. Describe your style in 3 words.
Classic, Feminine, Polished

2. Why did you start blogging?
I'd been following style blogs for a while. After having my daughter, I started blogging to hold myself accountable and not fall into the 'yoga pants trap.' I wanted to learn more about what looked good on me, how to make my closet work harder, and be more remix-able while documenting it all!

3. What do you like most about blogging and what are your goals for the future?
I love the support from the blogging community! Everyone is so sweet and encouraging. I get good tips and have met some great people and refined my style through blogging. I would love to eventually do some more collaboration, features, and grow my blog even more!

4.  Pick 3 favorite outfits and describe why they are your favorites.
I love this outfit because it's an unexpected way to wear a lace top. The jeweled collar and lace are so feminine, but the houndstooth tights and leather boots help to ground the outfit.

This is one of my favorites because to me, it kind of represents how far I have come with my style. Bright colors and patterns, especially together, don't scare me anymore! Also, it was nice and warm when I wore this and I can't wait for that gorgeous weather again!

I had to pick an outfit with boots! I think I sometimes forget I have other shoes. This is a comfortable, warm outfit I wore one weekend. Casual doesn't have to be boring! My scarf, socks, and vest add interest and I love that!

5. What not blogging, what do you like to do?
I love spending time with my husband and daughter. My husband and I have made so many great memories traveling all over! I like to bake, cook, and I love loosing myself in a good book!

6. You can only shop at one store for the rest of your life…Where would it be?
Oh man that is a tough one! I'd have to pick Target. They do a great job of getting the latest styles and I can't lie, I love their deals and coupons! It helps that there is one a mile away from my house and at least I would be covered whether I needed shoes, coats, clothes, purses, or even cereal! ;)

Jenn and I are excited to present you with this month’s Sit-Down Style Session featured blogger: Christina from The Style Storm. Christina has one of the most fantastic blogs out there.

1. Describe your style in 3 words
Feminine, Classic, Bohemian 

2. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I love fashion and needed a creative outlet while studying my life away getting my doctorate. I always get inspiration from fashion blogs and I wanted to be a part of that community.  I created The Style Storm to challenge my own personal style and create unique looks that I don't always get to showcase in my normal day-to-day life. 

3. What do you like most about blogging and what are your goals for the future?
What I love most about blogging is the challenge to be creative and put together unique looks! It is an amazing way to rediscover pieces in your closet or combine them in a new way! My goals for the future are to continue to love blogging and hopefully inspire a few people along the way! Oh and maybe attend NYFW! (A girl can dream, right?) :)

4. Pick 3 favorite outfits and describe why they are your favorite.

   Original Post Here I love this look because of the mix. I love mixing unexpected pieces together (tulle + chambray) to create fun and unique looks! Also, who doesn't love tulle?


Original Post Here I love this look because it pretty much sums up my style: a feminine dress, gorgeous statement necklace, and fun shoes!


Original Post Here I love this look because it is pretty much my go-to look in the cooler months: black skinnies, a chunky knit, and some form of leopard print!

5. When not blogging, what do you like to do?
I love to run! This past year I did my first half an full marathon! I also love to bake and hang out with my friends and family!

6. You can only shop at one store for the rest of your life... Where would it be?
It would probably have to be H&M (they cover the basics and have amazing trendy pieces).... or J. Crew... or Zara! That is sooo hard!

Sit-Down Style Session #4: Steph

Jenn and I are excited to present you with this month’s Sit-Down Style Session featured blogger: Steph from White Coat Wardrobe. Steph has such a great blog. She is incredibly stylish, classy and such a sweet lady. Without further ado here she is...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Describe your style in 3 words
Classic, modest, colorful

2. Why did you start blogging?
My mom is a costume designer, so I grew up with a love of textiles, and that eventually grew into a love of fashion and outfit planning. I am now a Physician Assistant student, which keeps me very busy and scientifically-minded most of my time.  I craved a creative outlet and a way for me to chronicle my work outfits and be inspired by other bloggers!

3. What do you like most about blogging and what are your goals for the future?
I LOVE the relationships that I have built from blogging! The women I have met are so supportive and so stylish, and everyone has been so kind! Each day, my fellow bloggers inspire me to remix what I already have in my wardrobe, and to expand my personal style. Blog-wise, my goals for the future include growing my readership and challenging myself to post more often. Career-wise, my goal is to graduate in June 2014 and pass my boards next summer!! :)

4. Pick 3 favorite outfits and describe why they are your favorites.


































 
Mint Stripes + Cobalt: This is the very first outfit I posted on my blog. I wore it to the first day of orientation for my clinical year...it was a color combination that I just threw together at the last minute! The mint and the cobalt inspired my entire blog design, and this outfit incorporates a few of my favorite things: stripes, a pencil skirt, bow flats, and a statement necklace! Top + Pencil Skirt + Statement Neckace = my go-to work outfit when I am feeling uninspired!



Lace + Plaid: I have been experimenting with layering a lot lately, and this is another "happy accident", where I combined plaid and lace and it gelled quite nicely! I love the boyish quality of the plaid, and that the feminine the lace adds a feminine touch. This is another example of what I'm currently wearing to work!
 























Jeans + Polka Dots + Vest: I love to print mix, and this is what I call "the trifecta of print mixing"! Polka dots, leopard, and the infamous herringbone vest! This vest was such a good investment...I had my eye on it last year at J.Crew, and was able to nab it using part of my winter clothing budget and lots of coupon stacking. The price-per-wear has to be pennies by now! I grab for it pretty much every day (weather permitting haha), and it looks great with both work and weekend wardrobe picks!
5. When not blogging, what do you like to do?
PA school keeps me super busy!! "Free time" outside of school right now consists of spending time with friends, blogging, laundry and cooking (so glamorous, right?!).

6. You can only shop at one store for the rest of your life…Where would it be?
ONE STORE?! Haha, oh man! Probably Target. Ideally, it would be J.Crew but I am trying to be more budget-conscious. Targets brands have been doing a great job of keeping up with their pricer competitors, and I love a good bargain!! Plus, Target also has snacks and other stuff... ;)


Thanks so much, Steph! Be sure to stop by Steph's blog for more of this lovely lady and her fantastic style!!

Sit-Down Style Session #3: Kaylee


Jenn and I are excited to present you with this month’s Sit-Down Style Session featured blogger: Kaylee from Kaylee Daily. Kaylee has one of the most adorable blogs out there. She is incredibly stylish, totally cute and one of the sweetest. Without further ado here she is.

1. Describe your style in 3 words.
Playful, bold, & girly 
2. Why did you start blogging?
It's a fun outlet for me to express my love for fashion and to look back on memories with my husband, family, & friends. 
3. What do you like most about blogging and what are your goals for the future?
I love picking out the outfits. My mind is constantly thinking up new outfit ideas, and I love bringing them to life on my blog. My goals for the future would be to keep meeting such lovely people, start finding sponsors, and be apart of upcoming events and conferences. 
4.  Pick 3 favorite outfits and describe why they are your favorites.
My 3 favorite outfits would have to be my tulle skirt with my baseball tee, my bow cardigan & polka dot button down, & my fruit dress. 

I love my tulle skirt! Its so much fun to wear. I loved pairing it with my baseball tee and a great statement necklace. It was a very bold move. 


My favorite dress I'll ever own is my fruit dress. I think it describes me perfectly. It's colorful & girly. It just makes me so happy when I wear it. I love Ban.do, so of course I had to wear my head scarf which adds another pop of color. 


My bow cardigan is very special to me because I have a huge love for bows and my sweet husband surprised me with it for Christmas. I almost cried. Hehe. I love the outfit because it shows a really good mix of prints.
5. What not blogging, what do you like to do?
I love spending time with my husband, we love to travel and go on adventures together. I love shopping, of course, and I enjoy making crafts and baking.

Outfit: green + leopard (and life!)

Hello blog world, I have missed you! How about a favorite fall outfit and then I'll explain where I've been? I'm wearing two of my favorite things here... animal print and kelly green.

Outfit: green + snow leopard

Outfit: green + snow leopard

Outfit: green + snow leopard

Blazer - Kohl's, recent / Cropped pants - GAP, recent / Snow Leopard blouse - Target, last year
Wedges - Target, last year / Bee bracelet - Target, early this year
Necklace - J Crew Factory, early this year

So, where have I been? Well, as many of you know I decided to go back to school last year to get my teaching credential (I got my BA in 2010). I work full time at my office job and then I either go to class or have online classwork. I have been getting home at 9pm and have been too tired to do much of anything at that point. I don't want to give up on my little blog/hobby though! To keep my sanity while I finish the last7 weeks of the quarter I am going to make a few changes....

1. My new goal is to post 2 "full" outfit of the days each week and then a third post that has my outfit pics I take via Instagram (@laurennicholle3) which is much less time consuming.

2. For the most part I won't be taking the time to search for and link to everything I'm wearing. I will be sure to note where it's from and whether or not it is recent. The time to search and link (especially when it's an old item and you're trying to find something similar) is very time consuming.

3. I probably won't be linking up or commenting as much I normally would (and this is the one that makes me sad because interacting with my fellow bloggers is the best part about blogging). Again, it's just the time issue. I am going to try to set aside a couple hours each week to catch up on reading and commenting.

I hope you all understand and hang in there with me until this quarter is over... believe me I can't wait for things to get back to normal!! Hope everyone is having a fantastic October so far!
