Tell us more about you and your blog
My blog is all about fashion and travel. I started my blog 7 years ago to document my daily life and out of discovering other bloggers, I discovered my love of fashion. I decided to focus solely on this and then incorporated travel into my blog in the last year. I want my blog to inspire other women to try styles they may not have worn before and to create a resource they can come to with questions.
