We love blogs (duh). That’s why we’re especially excited about our new blogger spotlight series. Over the next few months, we’re going to go behind the scenes with a few of our favorite bloggers for an inside look at what inspires them to put their best foot forward.
So without further ado…meet Karlee Andrews, Utah-based blogger and voice behind Madam Andrews. In her blog, Karlee talks fashion, décor, travel and more. Check out an excerpt of a recent blog post below, followed by our exclusive Q&A sesh.
On the Madam Andrews blog…
It’s so interesting to me to see how different styles come in and out and then back in again. There’s a lot of retro styles coming back right now and for the most part, I’m all about it. Some styles are a little too much for me… I see high school kids nowadays that look like they just popped out of a Saved By The Bell set, but hey, we all wore funky stuff in our teens! I do, however, love some good ol’ Converse High Tops, and it seems like everybody’s wearing them. I feel like there’s a broader age range of appropriateness when it comes to classic Converse. Teens and adults alike can get away with it.
Some other retro trends that I’m diggin’:
Ascot Scarves: They are so feminine and so classy. I love the ways that they’re being styled right now.
High-Waisted Jeans: I’m pretty much all about the high-waisted jeans these days. I think that they’re way more comfortable and I also think they’re cuter. I can’t handle a low-rise jean like I used to.
Overalls: I LOVE OVERALLS. They are way more flattering now (thank goodness) and I just adore the edge that they can bring to an outfit.
Q: How would you describe your personal style?
A: I would say that my style is classy with a bit of edge. I like to be edgy and on-trend, but I also like elements of my outfit to be timeless.
Q: What makes you feel confident throughout the day?
A: Getting ready to some good pump-up music in the morning really helps me feel confident and ready to tackle my day. It just puts me in that much-needed fresh and revived mindset. I think that starting out my day with those positive musical vibes really sets the tone for my level of confidence in the morning.
Q: What’s your go-to style of shoe?
A: This season, it’s definitely sandals or sneakers. Slip-on sandals are so fabulously easy to throw on in the morning (hallelujah), but I also love how sneakers are evolving right now. I dig the versatility in footwear. It makes me a happy gal!
Q: How do you put your best foot forward as a life and style blogger?
A: I really believe that being positive helps so much. Having a blog means that you are putting yourself out there and being vulnerable, which can be really scary. Helping other bloggers succeed and encouraging them is one way that I put my best foot forward. Focusing on aiding others and getting involved in the blogging community helps me to ignore any negativity that comes my way.
