Life is good when one of your favorite bloggers, Sarah from Simplicity, in mind, nominates you for the Liebster Award! The coolest thing about it is that it’s all about supporting other bloggers!! Just a couple of quick details about it; once you get nominated you answer the 11 questions that the blogger before you has chosen, then you pick 11 NEW bloggers (must have under 1,000 followers) and you pass the love along. You can pick all new questions, use the old ones or do a mix of both. Like we said, it’s cool because it’s all about showing the love and support to fellow bloggers! You learn more about the gals behind the blogs and hopefully find some new ones to read! Here were our 11 questions:
1. How did you come up with your blog name?
Here’s the thing- coming up with a blog name can be HARD. Two of us had been talking about starting a blog for sometime but couldn’t for the life of us come up with a name. I mean, we knew we wanted to talk about a couple of different things, including fashion. “Fashion isn’t our life but …we dress alright” OMG wait what?! BOOM perfect name!
2. What made you decide to start blogging?
Clancy: I had been lusting over the idea of a blog for the longest time. I love the idea of it being a creative outlet in so many different ways. The blogging community always seemed like this group of best friends and I mean who wouldn’t want to be part of that?!
Brit: I’m a college educated young woman and just not quite sure what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to connect with the world about what I’m doing in the mean time.
Porter: I liked reading blogs because I would learn a lot about fashion, beauty and fitness. I thought it would be fun to write a blog where I could share tips and tricks I’d learned and use my creativity in a new way.
3. Who is your fashion inspiration?
Porter: Mary-Kate Olsen and Sincerely Jules!! (When it comes to beauty inspiration... Essie Button is my girl!)
Clancy: Jessica from Bows & Sequins, Lily Collins & Elizabeth Olsen.
Brit: Serena VanDer Woodsen …but sometimes I dress more like Blair.
4. Who would you want to be your celebrity best friend and why?
Porter: Emma Stone. She’s funny and quirky and seems super down to earth ….plus she looks like she dresses alright!
Brit: I’m gonna say Hilary Duff. She just seems super normal. She made it out of Disney in one piece so that’s an accomplishment itself! And my husband loves hockey, so that would work out.
Clancy: Mila Kunis. Such a serious girl crush on her! I just feel like she would be so cool to do anything with! ...orrrrr Chris Pratt.
5. If you had one week to live, what would you be doing?
Porter: Spending every cent I own traveling the world. (Brit: “in a hot air balloon” Porter: “definitely NOPE”)
Clancy: Wow, I really don’t know. Whatever my heart felt when you told me I had a week to live…that’s what I would be doing.
Brit: Eating A LOT of Chinese food, laying on a beach and drinking mojitos.
6. Any guilty pleasures?
Clancy: We should have answered this question together.
7. If you had one store to shop in for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Clancy: Ulta. I mean that’s not practical but …DUH.
Porter: I’m going to be a sucker and say Target...is that cheating? I mean it IS just one store.
8. What is your favorite outfit at the moment?
Clancy: Leggings, slip on black sneakers, a fun tank and the most comfortable Lou & Grey jacket ever.
Porter: Black Ponte pants, flowy sweater layered with a crop top and my Madden Girl booties.
Brit: Jeggings, booties, oversized sweater wrap. DONE!
9. Best concert you have ever been to?
Brit: 98 degrees. Drew threw his towel at me, some stinky old man grabbed it from me but that thing was mine!!
Clancy: Can I nix the concert and tell you the best play I’ve ever been to was Wicked when Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth were still in it?!
Porter: It's a tie between Miranda Lambert (we rocked out, we cried, we sang country balads at the top of our lungs) and Fall Out Boy...#thnksfrthmmrs
10. Any bad habits you would like to kick for the new year?
Porter: Not answering emails or voicemails.
Brit: Boredom snacking.
11. What was the most inspirational book you have read, or movie you have watched?
Brit: Stuck In Love
Porter: Captivating by John and Stacey Eldridge.
Clancy: Demi Lovato’s Staying Strong. That girl is PHENOM.
