When did you launch Le Blonde Chateau and what made you decide to get into fashion blogging?
I graduated from fashion school & worked for many years as a stylist & buyer, so starting my own fashion blog happened very naturally. I launched Le Blonde Chateau in 2015 and mainly began sharing my wedding planning. It very quickly became a lifestyle blog, with fashion being the main focus.
How would you describe your personal style?
I never know how to answer this question, haha! A little bit trendy, and little bit classic, a little bit of me seeing a pretty texture/pattern/silhouette and just making it work!
How have you developed your style over time?
It’s actually quite funny to look back at some of my old outfits and fashion choices. In high school/college I was a little bit heavier than I am now, but would wear super short shorts & crop tops (not the cutest!). In college, I thought I was ‘edgy’ and would wear some pretty vulgar pieces that I’m now completely embarrassed by. There are certain outfits from these days that I do still like, however! Now, I’m a stay at home mom & work from home on my blog, so I’m all about comfort. The athleisure trend is my best friend!
How do you stay current with what’s new or in style at the moment?
Social media makes it so easy to keep up with current trends, but also to be inspired by each other. That’s probably my favorite thing about it! If I’m ever in a creative rut, I’ll scroll through Instagram or Pinterest and be so inspired by other talented ladies & friends!
Tell me about one item that you bought this year that you just can’t live without?
Nikes & baseball hats!! This is what I refer to as my ‘momiform.’ I just throw them on with leggings and a comfy tee and I feel like I’m wearing pajamas, but look a little more acceptable for going out in public!
What’s most important to you in choosing an outfit for the day?
What is your favorite social platform and why?
I love Instagram. I feel like I’m able to connect the most with others on that platform. I’ve been able to meet so many other bloggers on there, and have actually made quite a few friends who I keep in touch with through Instagram. It’s a great way to communicate with friends, fellow bloggers, and my readers.
What daily tools and platforms do you use in your blogging routine, for research, promotion, sharing and other?
I use WordPress for my blog posts, and Instagram to share photos, sale updates, and daily life. I also am constantly shopping! I spend lots of time on sites like Nordstrom, Asos, Revolve, etc.
What are your goals for 2017?
My main goal for the year was to develop and maintain a consistent blogging schedule. Since my daughter was born, I’ve had a hard time figuring out the best way to balance things like blogging with motherhood, and all of my other responsibilities. After sitting down and getting organized, I feel so much more on track and motivated!
