Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you begin blogging?
My name is Laura Boswell, and I am a 30 year old MBA grad student, Assistant Credit Manager and style blogger. I began blogging 1 year ago after my husband suggested I start blogging since I had recently started reading so many fashion blogs.
Describe your style in 3 words.
Girly, classic and fun.
Where do you get your style inspiration?
I get my style inspiration from magazines and TV, but I try to just wear what I think feels and looks good.
What do you like best about living in Tennessee?
I live in downtown Memphis by the water, and I absolutely love it. There is always something to do, especially outdoors.
Do you notice any regional trends that may not be as prevalent in other areas?
Being in the South, I have noticed that most people around here tend to love their monograms
. I fit into that category as well. ; )
What is your favorite local attraction?
My favorite local attraction is Shelby Farms
. It is mine and my husband’s favorite park. They have some of the best bike trails, and my Yorkies love it too!
What is the hottest winter style you’re beginning to see?
Vests, fur, leather, plaid and just layering overall.
What was at the top of your wishlist this Christmas?
Right now I am on a decorating kick so I am wanting some more furniture from West Elm. I also hope to be able to get my bathroom and my kitchen tiled soon.
What do you look for in a piece of jewelry?
Quality. I like nice thick, substantial statement pieces. I would rather spend more money on something that looks nice and that will last.
What is your favorite piece of jewelry you own and why?
My Kendra Scott tassel necklace. I wear it almost everyday! It is a great classic, matches everything and is long enough to elongate the body.
The rose gold and gunmetal fashion watch. I love the ride gold and gunmetal watch. Such a great statement piece that will stand out.
