Read an excerpt below of a recent blog post, in addition to a Q&A chatting all things casual and cool with Famous Footwear.
On the Shelby Helen blog…
“I finally got this flannel I have been eyeing for months and it does not disappoint. I love the colors and how it’s a little longer in the back. It also pairs nicely with a utility jacket. I wore this around Chicago this weekend with my family for my grandpa’s 85th birthday! I got these sneakers right before I left. I’ve been seeing them a lot, but I didn’t think I could pull them off. Then I saw these adidas Advantage Clean sneakers at Famous Footwear on sale and snagged them up! They were amazing! Seriously, so comfortable for traveling and walking around the city all day. I’m so, so glad I grabbed them.”
Q: How would you describe your personal style?
A: I would say I have a pretty minimalist style. I love neutrals and occasionally add a pop of color, but I mainly stick to stripes and blacks. I love to be comfy and casual! That is key to me.
Q: What makes you feel confident throughout the day when it comes to style?
A: Compliments on my outfit always add a little pep in my step. I also just love the satisfaction of seeing an outfit come together. I’m sure we all have those days where we leave the house already wishing we were wearing something else and it throws off your whole day!
Q: What’s your go-to style of shoe this season, and why?
A: I’m obviously loving the casual sneakers trend! I have 3 pairs right now and don’t see myself stopping at that.
Q: How are you taking your own #stepforward as a life and style blogger?
A: Starting my blog was a huge #stepforward for me. Now that I finally did it, I always want to strive to have an affordable style for my readers and be inspiring and encouraging in what I do.
