On the Little Piece of Chic blog…
“Ever since I started my blog, Little Piece of Chic, just over two years ago, I feel like I have grown to see myself in a better light and have gained more confidence in myself and body. My style is unique and special to me and it is my outlet to express myself. I feel most confident and comfortable when I love what I am wearing and one of my favorite looks is athleisure. On the weekends and after work, you will find me in my favorite boyfriend jeans, graphic tee and my go-to shoe, tennis shoes! These rose gold and black New Balance tennies are the perfect athletic shoe because they are both comfy and chic. They can be dressed up or down, depending on your day! I love wearing mine with leggings and a big sweater on lazy days and I can also wear them with a casual dress in the springtime.”
Q: How would you describe your personal style?
A: My personal style is always evolving. The one word I always try to focus my style around is “chic.” Chic means to be stylish and elegant. I always aim to dress with confidence and try new things when it comes to my style. I have more of a casual style, and boyfriend jeans and a graphic tee pretty much sum up my style on a typical day.
Q: What makes you feel confident throughout the day when it comes to style?
A: Being in my 20s, I have gone through a lot of changes, tried new things and grown up a lot. I used to dress very timidly and dress for others, making sure I didn’t stand out too much. After starting my blog, I feel much more confident to try new things and wear things I never thought I’d wear before.
Q: What’s your go-to style of shoe this season, and why?
In this spring season, my go-to style of shoe is anything athleisure. A fashionable tennie, slip-ons, Converse, etc. I am all about athleisure lately and love sporty shoes that make a statement. I love dressing up an athletic shoe with a casual dress or dressing it down with some boyfriend jeans and a simple tee.
Q: How are you taking your own #stepforward as a life and style blogger?
When it comes to confidence, I can be my own worst critic. I struggle with comparing myself to other girls, letting my own insecurities overcome me. This causes me to grow jealous and wish I looked like or had the same success as someone I don’t even know. When Famous Footwear asked me to share my #stepforward story, this idea of confidence came to mind. Ever since I started my blog, Little Piece of Chic, just over two years ago, I feel like I have grown to see myself in a better light and have gained more confidence in myself and body.
