When Amy reached out to me about doing a link-up, I immediately said yes. Not only does she live in Annapolis (one of my favorite cities) but she has a great sense of preppy, feminine style. Check out our Q&A below, and be sure to check out her blog, Bowlines & Lace, for a feature on yours truly here, as well as great fashion inspiration!
What inspired you to start blogging?
I have always loved fashion and make-up! I often followed other bloggers and YouTube channels sharing their style and make-up advice. I thought blogging would be a fun opportunity to share some of my own style looks. People in my life often asked my fashion opinion and suggested that I had a good sense of style. Fashion blogging has become a new and creative endeavor!
What do you consider your signature style?
I love to dress with a nautical flare. Ralph Lauren signature polo in navy with skinny pants paired with riding boots is very me. I love dresses, especially A-line and pairing with accents of anchors or stripes. I find myself wearing mostly neutral colors with a pop of color seen with various accessories. I will always stay true to my preppy/nautical/equestrian look, but my style is constantly evolving which keeps life exciting.
Who are your greatest fashion influences?
I admire the classic looks of Jackie Kennedy, as well as the versatility of Victoria Beckham’s style. I love designs from Cynthia Rowley, Kate Spade and of course Ralph Lauren.
Other than blogging, what are some of your passions and hobbies?
I am an avid runner and run marathons in my pastime. I enjoy painting with acrylics and watercolor. I also love the outdoors and enjoy any opportunity to hike, sail, and kayak. I would love to own a clothing and accessory boutique one day!
