Our best of bloggers Q&A summer series is back for round 2! To start the summer off, we chatted with Britt Cherry of Silas and Miri about Southern summer fashion and beauty and it set our series off to a great start!
Read on to get Britt’s take on Southern summer living, fashion, and how to balance parenting in the mix!
Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you get into blogging?
I became interested in blogging over the past year or so. Being pregnant and feeling hideous gave me a new passion for all things beauty lol. So I decided to start a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle blog. Being a mother of two AND writing gets interesting at times, I’m having a ton of fun though.
What is your best summer beauty routine?
Sunblock! I spent so many years cooking in the Alabama sun. I’m going to be 30 in few years, so I’m really trying to be a good girl and take better care of my skin.
What is your go-to summer accessory?
Statement sunglasses! I picked up the Love Lace sunglasses from Urban Outfitters on a recent trip to North Carolina. They are amazing! I’m a huge fan the vintage trend, it’s right up my alley.
What are some of the major style trends you’re seeing this summer?
I’m certainly seeing a lot of bold stripes. It’s very Edie Sedgwick, so naturally I love it.
As an Alabama native, what’s your favorite thing about southern living in the summer?
We are fortunate to not live very far from the Gulf, so we go to the beach a lot during the summer. We usually end up at Gulf Shores or Panama City Beach, so much family fun! I’m more partial to Gulf Shores, they have a great outlet mall.
Any advice on balancing parenting with beauty and fashion?
Just breathe lol. My daughter will be 5 months old on the 18th of this month. To begin with – it was super challenging to even go shopping with two kids. Now I’m a ninja with the double stroller! Silas and Miri will always come first. It’s really about planning, I somehow fit my needs in there somewhere haha.
What is your favorite item this summer from EvesAddiction.com?
I’m a huge fan of the “Gatsby inspired Daisy’s CZ engagement ring.” It is absolutely stunning. My husband took me to see “The Great Gatsby” this past weekend. (I sorta forced him haha) I was sure I would love the movie because it was directed by Baz Luhrmann, I knew he would stay true to the book. If you’re a fan – then this ring is for you.
Eve’s Addiction blog would like to give a huge thank you to Britt for giving us her insights into what”s hot this summer!
