A 'Regal' Tour Of Blogland


We are thrilled to be nominated by the lovely Lindsay of Sequins & Style to participate in the "Tour Through Blogland", a way to share a little bit about ourselves and introduce our readers to other bloggers we love. Before we introduce you to some of our favorite ladies, we've answered a few questions about our blog.

1) What are we working on?
Because we’ve only been blogging for one year, we are still working on building our readership, engaging with other style bloggers and collaborating with brands to do some fun giveaways. We’re really looking forward to the holidays and doing some fun things to feature on the blog.

2) How does our work differ from others in its genre?
We think it’s important not to take yourself too seriously in style blogging and shy away from trying to look perfect. We literally wear our outfits for a full day at the office, and typically take our photos on our lunch break. We live in the Midwest so it’s important for us to be practical - but that doesn’t mean we can’t be stylish. We love following along with our favorite bloggers but also feel it’s important to be original with the pieces we incorporate in our looks - #WokeUpLikeThis t-shirt, we’re looking at you!

3) Why do we write/create what we do?
If you’ve been reading along, you know that we work in the same office and we are marketers in a highly regulated industry (yep, that means boring), so our blog allows us a creative outlet. Plus, its not uncommon for us to arrive at the office wearing the same style elements (color, pattern, etc.) each day - completely unplanned - so it was just a good idea for us to blog about our style.

4) How does our writing/creating process work?
Our process is not really having one! We’re completely informal with our posts and tend to write whatever pops into our head. We don’t have an editorial calendar or planned outfits. If we put on something cute in the morning we grab our cameras on the way into rush hour traffic and make plans to take photos at lunch. Think that brick wall backdrop in our posts is cool? That would be the back of Target as we rush in to grab Diet Coke, and peruse the beauty section all while “Cartwheeling” the latest deals. Yeah. We’re that cool.

Now, on to the fun part! Meet these four amazing bloggers that we absolutely adore. (I think technically we were supposed to choose three but what can we say, we're rebels!)

Harrison at GILTY as charged

Hi! My name is Harrison and I am the fashion-crazed blonde behind GILTY as charged. I am a Southern girl who left small-town SC for bigger things & higher heels. GAC is a brutally honest look inside my obsession with shopping, design & my love for the inside of a well-stocked closet. Currently, my closet is located in Atlanta where I live with my equally fashionable kitty cat, Baby Coco Chanel.

Jacqueline at Stylin' In St. Louis

 
I'm Jacqueline and I write the blog Stylin' In St. Louis. I am a midwest gal who works as a teacher by day and a blogger by night. My blog was started as a wedding blog and has since transformed into a style blog. I find that I have a much better day when I look and feel good.

Mary-Katherine at Gold-Hatted Lover

Mary-Katherine is the California turned Kansas City girl behind the life + style blog Gold-Hatted Lover.  There she shares everything from her outfits, current cravings, weekly recaps, travels, playlists and more.  She loves that having a blog gives her a perfectly good excuse to get dolled up every day and treasures that it also acts as a way to document her life adventures.

Ashley at Le Stylo Rouge

I’m a content strategist and style blogger at LeStyloRouge living in the Kansas City area. I’ve got a smart mouth and a serious shoe problem- if you can call being addicted to shoes a problem. Fashion for me is all about having fun, and mixing investment pieces with budget-friendly options is one of my favorite games.

Enjoy meeting the fabulous ladies featured above! We know that they inspire us daily to continue on our style journey, and bring you new posts and outfit inspiration.
