Tell us more about you and your blog

I started Sparkling Southerner initially to create a new style for myself and showcase my new style to others. It is a southern fashion blog with a twist meaning I throw together pieces that have bright colors and sequins whereas that is not necessary what you consider traditional southern style. Yet all my outfits contain very classic items that are affordable essentials. I work in clinical research and blog at night or on the weekends.
