Met the sweetest fashion blogger who lives in the same city as me, Kristin from The Delilah Blog
. We decided to meet up one Saturday and brunch at CaCao70
to talk fashion, food and life. We totally indulged on some goodies and I tried something a little different: the Italian Sausage Frittta. It was so delicious! Throughout our hangout, Kristin and I did a little Q + A so you guys can get to know her as well! Check it out below:
Tell me about your blog and how you got started?
Truly, when I started… I had no clue what I was doing! Nor did I do any sort of research into the world of fashion blogging, so I was really diving off of a cliff blindfolded. I have always loved writing, fashion, and photography… One day after an afternoon of “Pinterest-ing” I was inspired to have a little fashion show photo-shoot of my own! It all sort of came to me at once – to start a blog… So I did! Once I “hit the water” so to speak, I realized what an amazing industry it is – fashion blogging – and the community that it can develop, especially amongst local bloggers. I have recently re-branded from Sincerely, K.P. to The Delilah Blog – and you can read more about why I did so, and how I came up with my new name in the “About Me” section of my blog!
How would you describe your own personal style?
Generally speaking, I would say that I embrace the fashion of an “everyday style guru.” Meaning that although I don’t shop all brand-name everything, I like to look my best and feel fashionable, but on an everyday woman’s budget. I want my audience to feel like my closet is attainable for them, too, even if they can’t afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a single piece. Of course, there are those classic staples that require a splurge!
What are your favourite trends for this season?
I am in LOVE with the white sneaker trend – my personal favourite is white Converse – and anything floral for spring/summer!
Who do you look to for fashion cues?
To be honest, I look all around me! Especially to my fellow fashion bloggers (like you, Zivanka!), and other fashionable friends who encompass similar values in style. Another big inspiration is Pinterest – although it sometimes takes a big of digging and scrolling to find those outfits that I really love, it is totally worth it!
If you had to pick one thing you couldn’t live without, what would it be and why?
Oh, this is such a difficult question! But I think I have to go with a great pair of skinny jeans (my favourites are from Zara!). I say this because jeans are the ultimate piece that can be dressed up or down – pair them with sneakers and a tee and it’s the classic casual look. Throw on some heels and a feminine top, and you’re ready for date night!
What’s your next fashion must-have?
I’ve got my eye on that Chloe purse… I’m coming for you! 🙂
When you can’t think of anything to wear, what is your go-to outfit?
For spring and summer, my go-to outfit is a sundress (this year, definitely floral!) and a pair of comfortable wedges (just bought the cutest pair from Forever21!).
What are the next steps for The Delilah Blog? What are your aspirations?
A new chapter has just begun for me with The Delilah Blog, and I am so excited to see where it goes! It feels like I just put my foot down from my last “step,” so what’s next? I would love to make more connections with other local bloggers (and non-locals, too!), work with new brands that reflect my style and values, and ultimately grow more as a blogger with a unique voice and relatable fashion. So far this journey has been really fun, and I’m just excited to see where it leads me in the future!
