liebster award

The always gorgeous Kelsey at The Kelsey Wolfe Blog nominated me for a Liebster Award! It's an award bloggers give to other bloggers newer to blogging scene. After you've been nominated you answer the 11 questions the nominee asked and then nominate other bloggers to answer the questions! Super fun and THANKS to Kelsey for nominating me! :)

1. What’s your go-to staple piece?
MY JEAN JACKET. Seriously nothing else compares. 

2. Favorite season to dress for?
Fall for sure! Love boots, coats, scarves and cute hats!

3. Most expensive fashion item you’ve ever purchased?
After my undergrad graduation, I used money gifted to me to buy a LV Speedy.... Which then got stolen at a bar in SF about a month later. Now that I'm older and wiser (or something like that) the thought of spending that much money on a purse makes me want to throw up. Pretty expensive lesson learned I suppose?

4. What got you into blogging?
Not what but WHO. Over a night of vino and plans to map our out GRE studying, my BFF Molly suggested I start blogging. And I did just to procrastinate. And here we are just a few months later- I'm blogging and not studying. Oh and Molly is starting grad school in the fall. Good one, Nicole... (to my boss if you're reading- I'll get there, I swear!)

5. How long have you been blogging?
I "started" in late 2012 but blogged pretty haphazardly for awhile. I'd say I've been blogging with a voice and more cohesively for 2-3 months.

6. Blogging/fashion inspiration?
The first blog that really inspired me was Kate at The Small Things Blog. I think since then she has still been my biggest inspiration.

7. How would you describe your style?
While I'd like to say effortless (because nothing says effortless like dressing as the Cat in the Hat for Halloween), getting dressed and not wearing yoga pants takes effort from me every.single.day. I think my style is simple to be lazy and comfortable with a splash of trendy? Maybe a dash of feminine? Isn't that what everyone says though? What is the next question? Because I bombed this one. 

8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
You know, I don't have an answer for that. I grew up in San Francisco as did most of my family and for a long time I thought I couldn't live anywhere but there. And then I moved to DC with Aaron and I realized oh wait, I CAN live other places. So I've learned not to tie myself down to anywhere specifically. If I could live anywhere, I'd want to live somewhere that always makes me happy, wherever that may be :)

9. What’s your favorite designer/store?
While the cool answer might be Nordstrom or J. Crew or something like that, my answer is Target. It just is. Get over it

10. Favorite color?

11. Best piece of blogging advice?
Find your voice! I wrote for awhile the way I thought a "blogger" should sound. But I don't talk/write how a "blog sounds" (what does that even mean really?) in real life so why would I force it in my writing. I started writing like I was talking to any of my friends and it has really helped me find my voice so to say. I remember my 8th grade English teacher talking about finding your voice. I can't imagine what she would think if she learned I found it writing a blog about clothes and make up. Sorry Rebecca (if you're reading)! (Yes, I went to a hippy school in SF where you called your teachers by their first names.)

Woohoo! Thanks for reading ALL THAT JAZZ. Promise tomorrow will much shorter :)

My turn now? I'm nominating....

  1. I just started following your blog a few days ago and already I love it! Even more so after reading this. I love following bloggers who feel like they could be a friend IRL. Thanks for being real!
