i am very excited to introduce to you my (chicago) july style crush...anna jane from see jane. she's got style and skills (see jane bake and cook too). i love her easy going personality and stylish wardrobe... here are a few of my favorite outfits and how you can get her look::
hobbies: Music, going to concerts, reading, cooking, being with my friends and family, traveling, volunteering (currently looking for a new organization to work with if anyone has suggestions), fashion, and Words With Friends (my name is seeannajane if you want to play!)
what is your favorite store in chicago? I know you mean clothing, but I love the Whole Foods in Lincoln Park. It's my happy place. In terms of clothes, I love shopping at Nordstrom, J Crew, and H&M.
what is your favorite trend this summer? Bright colors and maxi skirts
what is your favorite season (in terms of the clothes you get to wear)? Fall for the layers and change of dress completely and summer for the light fabrics and sandals--I can't choose!
what is your favorite accessory? Earrings--I feel naked without them, but I only like to wear studs or posts.
what do you feel most comfortable wearing? Any kind of dress.
whose style do you admire? Joanna Hillman, Jenna Lyons, Diane Kruger
what inspired you to start your blog? I started it on a whim while my dad was ill in 2010 as a distraction from life's realities and also as a desire to combine my love of style and writing.
do you have any advice to new fashion bloggers? It's pretty daunting to put yourself out there like this, but if you love it, then I'd advise to stick with it! It's also super easy to get caught up in the comparasion game, but I think it's super important to stay true to yourself and to have your own voice. Also, the best way to get readers is to reader other blogs and get involved with the community. Stay genuine and reach out to other bloggers that you can relate to through emails/comments/twitter.
