For the Girls: Does this romper come in my size? Nothing is more adorable to me than a little girl in a denim playsuit, except of course if said denim playsuit is paired with floral peep-toe espadrille flats and a straw hat. For a second fun spring look, scoop up this on-trend floral dress paired with light denim sandals. And what little girl doesn’t love her accessories? A heart-shaped straw purse and mini-me bangles will make any little one feel tres chic.
What made you want to start My Style Diaries?
I had just quit my job in fashion public relations, and I was looking for both a creative outlet and something to add to my resume. I came up with the concept of My Style Diaries because I didn’t feel like there were any interactive fashion blogs out there that allowed readers input into what they wanted to see. I allow my readers to write in with their own fashion dilemmas, and I really do try to create an outfit for every single person who writes in. It has become very time-consuming (and addictive!), so I decided to focus all of my attention on it and try to make it my full-time job. A year later, I couldn’t be happier about that decision.
What trends are you seeing for spring and summer?
Color, color, color! From buttery pastels to bright neons, I can’t get enough of the spring and summer color palette. Color-blocking is still big and incorporates the it colors of the season. Bold patterns, including lots of vivid florals, are being seen on everything from dresses to denim, and they are a great way to update your wardrobe this year.
Where do you get your fashion inspiration?
I’m inspired by literally everything around me. I scour magazines, runway reports, television and movie wardrobes, and I love interesting street style. I’m really inspired by other bloggers as well, and I love the amazing sense of community there is in the fashion blogosphere.
