A few fun tie bits about me {besides the fact that I’m completely fashion obsessed}.
Quit my 9-5 at the end of 2012 to pursue my dream of being my own boss & doing what I love.
Now I am blessed to say, I have done just that. Whether it’s freelancing or blogging,
I spend my days working at home + on the road, loving every minute of my flexibly.

What inspired you to start your blog? How long have you been blogging?

I launched LICP in February 2012 as a way to connect with local, like minded women in the fashion industry and inspire others through my personal style and fashion journey.

Describe your style? Where do you find your style inspiration?

I feel my style is dictated by seasonal shifts and what type of mood I am in. I would say I often gravitate toward feminine silhouettes (fit and flare, billowy layers, and bell sleeves) and soft florals, however I can never get enough of ripped denim and oversized boyfriend tees. I find inspiration mostly throughout my travels. For example, last September after my first trip to London, I walked away wanting to only wear black jeans and oversized outerwear. The weather may have attributed to that wardrobe shift, but it was still eye opening to see what people across the pond rock on a daily basis. On the flipside, during a trip to Tokyo, I walked away not necessarily wanting to dress like a local, but the influence of vibrant colors and pattern play was something pretty magical to take inspiration from.

What is a timeless fashion piece you can’t live without? 

The black loafer. Each year I see the style continue to be a staple within the majority of designer collections. Always reinvented or slightly tweaked season to season, whether it’s a play on texture, adding a heel detail, or making them backless (as we have seen the last couple years). Each detail as small as a shift it may be, continues to make this piece relevant year after year.

What are some of your favorite Fall 2016 Trends?

The continued menswear inspired pieces, the recent explosion of bell sleeves, and mono-neutrals all around!

One piece of advice you would give to any start up bloggers?

I would recommend going into it with a clear picture of what your goals are for your blog. Whether that means educating yourself on blogging as an industry, stalking your favorite bloggers websites for layout inspiration, or simply coming up with your own mission statement. Have all your ducks in a row and reference back to your original goals once you get started to ensure you’re staying on the path you intended. This industry will open so many doors that you never even imagined were possible, but maintaining your integrity along the way is the key to success.

Favorite place to work on your blog? Creative Space?

I would honestly say my favorite place to work is my home. It’s a comfortable space for me with little distraction where I feel I can be the most productive.
