Sit-Down Style Session #1

Sit-down Style Session ButtonI am so excited to announce a collaboration with Jenn of The Brandied Pair: the monthly Sit-Down Style Session! Here's how it works... every second Friday of the month we'll be hosting a link-up. Show off your fashion/style blog by linking to your favorite post. Then check out other fabulous bloggers and socialize while we choose a blogger to feature in next month's Sit-Down Style Session! The chosen  blogger will answer a few fun questions and choose some favorite outfits to show off. Her post will be featured on The Brandied Pair and Style of One's Own the following month where we'll do it all over again! For this first month we're featuring each other so you can get an idea of what the Sit-Down Style Session looks like. If you are interested in being featured in September please email Lauren or Jenn. The link-up list will begin in September. Newbie or veteran, all are welcome! We hope this will be a fun way to meet other bloggers and get the inside scoop.

My Fav Her Fav - Lauren

I am Jenn the face and voice behind The Brandied Pair. Founded in May of 2013, The Brandied Pair combines my love for style, fashion and a little of everything else with my husband’s--Jordan Romero from Abre Los Ojos--love for photography. With no formal training in either field, The Brandied Pair serves as an outlet for us to express our individual interests for these arts as well as our love for each other. 

1. Describe your Style in 3 words.
Classic and Girly with a little bit of Spunk

2. Why did you start blogging?
For over a year, I wanted to start blogging. I have been an avid reader of fashion blogs for a very long time. I was showing my husband something on one of my favorite blogs one day and he said “you can totally do this Jenn.” That is what sparked the idea but I totally lacked the confidence. I was worried about what people would think and I was scared that no one would be interested in what I had to say. A good friend of mine gave me the push I needed. She encouraged me to put myself out there; I am so glad she did!

3. What do you like best about blogging and what are your goals for the future?
I know this is going to sound sappy but I love how the blogging community really embraces each other. Their support really is what has kept me going. Some of my goals include more collaborations, sponsorships and more giveaways. I really believe keeping your audience interested and giving them opportunities to win items is a huge help in maintaining and growing your readers.

4. Pick 3 favorite outfits and describe why they are your favorite.
I love this outfit because it is casual enough for a brunch with the girls but would also work for dinner with my husband.

I am on of those girls who wear "uniforms" or the same thing but in different colors.  At least twice I week I can be found in a pencil skirt, blouse and blazer.  I love this pairing because of all the colors a crammed into one look.

This is a typical Saturday outfit.  Casual yet put together.  I love this pants because of the limitless possibilites.

5. When not blogging what do you do?
My husband and I are big travelers, seems like we are always planning our next big adventure. We also have a little princess puppy named Ella Fitzgerald. When we are home she is the center of our little universe. Right now we are in the process of purchasing our first home, so shopping for my closet has switched to shopping and planning for our new home.

6. You can only shop at one store the rest of your life….What would it be?
I am a total JCrew junkie. I know not very unique or interesting but a girl can’t help what she loves. 

**Isn't Jenn amazing?? Thanks so much, Jenn! Hope to see you all in September for the first official link-up! Don't forget to email Lauren or Jenn if you are interested in being featured September 13.
