Girl of the Blogosphere: Kimberly



Name: Kimberly


City: Greenville, NC (Can you even call that a city?)



Occupation: Administrative Assistant


Who is your fashion inspiration?
My real life fashion inspirations are my daughter and my four best girlfriends. My daughter is the reason I started to blog in the first place- I fell into the new mom rut, decided I deserved better, and wanted to be a "chic mommy." And my best friends all represent different parts of my style from classic to professional to sporty to mom-on-the-go. In the blog world, I gather inspiration from several bloggers, but Sydney, of The Daybook, has a fashionable, classy, chic, clean, and ATTAINABLE style that I love. My celebrity style icon is Lauren Conrad. Her style is SO easy and girly!

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
Oh, C.O. Bigelow tinted lip gloss with menthol in it, hands down. I'll remember my lip gloss before my cell phone.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
Something I love to see, but am not super comfortable wearing is the military look. I love the idea of combat boots and a chic, tailored military inspired jacket. But for some reason, I just can't make it look right on myself. I've tried on a few jackets that are cute on the hanger, but don't do it for me on my body. A trend I'll never get over is girly ruffles and florals. I love tiny floral prints on lightweight ruffled dresses. The look makes me feel so ethereal and feminine.

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
I'm really not into metallics. Don't get me wrong. I love accessorizing with pops of gold, silver, copper and pewter, but I don't think I could manage to wear an entire piece of clothing that's metallic.


Why did you start your blog?
This is my favorite question, and I kind of ruined it by giving you hints in my answer to #1, but I started my blog because I was living in t-shirts, sweat pants, flip-flops, and exercise clothes. All I wanted after my daughter was born, was to be comfortable. I didn't realize that one could be fashionable and comfortable at the same time. And before the blog, I probably would never have even considered compromising a bit of comfort to look really good. But, I decided to document my outfits to hold myself accountable. I figured that if I was going to have my picture taken every day, I couldn't be lazy.

Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?
Sometimes, my husband takes my photos, but I do them myself, most of the time. I just got a new camera for my birthday, and my husband found a few tripods for me to test out, so that's my preferred method when he's not around. Before about a week ago, though, I was setting my little digital camera on whatever flat surface I could find and praying that the self timer would work!

How would you describe your style?
The only way to put my style into one description is "Chic Mom-On-The-Go." I was so afraid that when I got the gumption to start "getting dressed" after my daughter was born, that I would fall into cropped khakis, striped polos, and keds. I didn't want to be THAT mom. I express myself, depending on my mood and the weather, and I have a wide array of styles within in my wardrobe, ranging from casual to dressy and professional to preppy.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
I want a dress for every single day. I've put myself on a year-long shopping ban to help gain more control over finances and weed out what I need and don't need in my wardrobe. But I want sweet, girly dresses like nobody's business.

Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
Shoes, shoes, shoes! Bags aren't exciting to me. GASP! I know, it's crazy. My shoulders slant down, a lot, so most bags just slip right down my arm and frustrate me to no end! I can't imagine spending a ton of money on a bag that isn't going to stay on my shoulder! Now, if I could find a sweet cross-body bag that is classic, neutral in color, and big enough to carry my lip gloss, camera, phone, wallet, and a diaper or two if we're on the run, I'm picking that baby up. Shopping ban or not! But shoes... they make me drool.

What is one thing that you regret buying?
Just last Fall, I purchased a seafoam green wrap shirt from New York and Company. I bought it online and the color looked really pretty and minty. When I received it in the mail, it looked like baby peas and the color washes me out so badly that I look sea sick. I let it hang in my closet while deliberating, and now it's too late for a return!


If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
Lauren Conrad. I know, I know. Several people would prefer to meet a high fashion designer or runway model. And Lauren is YOUNGER than me, too boot, so it's not like she's had a lifetime of experience. But at the same time, she's accomplished so much at a young age, she's chasing her dreams, her style is within reach for the average woman, and her book, "Lauren Conrad Style," was a huge inspiration to me.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
I haven't been anywhere exotic or super-exciting, except for France. And that was for a school trip! So, as far as my official vacations have gone, I'll have to choose the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The beaches and restaurants are amazing, it's not too touristy, and that's where I've made a ton of memories with my friends and my husband.

What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
If I could only choose one "meal" for the rest of my life, I'd choose original Oreos (not that double stuff nastiness) and milk!

  7. I really like Kimberly. She seems really nice. I also like that her hubby, and daughter have their own little features. I would eat only oreos too with peanutbutter on top, and milk. Now I'm hungry.

  26. Hi, other than economics assignment help are there other subjects that you cover? I am having several assignments one needs an economics homework help expert and the other one needs a financial expert. If you can guarantee quality work on both then I can hire you to complete them. All I am sure of is that I can hire you for the economics one but the finance one I am not sure.

  27. Me and my classmates took too long to understand Matlab Assignment Help pricing criteria. we're always grateful for unique solutions on their Matlab assignments. Matlab Homework Help experts have the right experience and qualifications to work on any programming student's homework. They help us in our project.

  28. Hey STATA homework help expert, I need to know if you can conduct the Kappa measurement of agreement. This is what is in my assignment. I can only hire someone for statistics assignment help if they are aware of the kappa measurement of agreement. If you can do it, then reply to me with a few lines of what the kappa measure of agreement is. Let me know also how much you charge for statistics homework help in SAS

  29. The ardent Programming Homework Help tutor that nailed down my project was very passionate. He answered my Python questions with long, self-explanatory solutions that make it easy for any average student to revise. Moreover, he didn't hesitate to answer other questions, too, even though they weren't part of the exam. If all Python Homework Help experts can be like this then they can trend as the best Programming school ever online.

  30. Besides my C course, I have a job and family, both of which compete to get my time. I couldn't find sufficient time for the challenging C assignments, and these people came in and saved my skin. I must commend them for the genius Programming Assignment Help. Their C Homework Help tutors did the best job and got me shining grades.https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/

  31. I am looking for a Statistics Assignment Help expert for Statistics Homework Help. I have struggled enough with statistics and therefore I just can't do it anymore on my own. . I have come across your post and I think you are the right person to provide me with SPSS homework help. Let me know how much you charge per assignment so that I can hire you today.https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/

  32. Matlab Assignment Help helped me to complete my seventh Matlab assignment, which was also the best-performed! It scored 92/100, which I've never scored before on any other assignment/exam in my lifetime. Otherwise, their service was as quick as usual. The delivery was also on time. I'm now requesting to use this same programmer multiple times. He seems the best in Image Processing tasks. Meanwhile, I'll ask for more Matlab Homework Help soon.https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/

  33. I have just come across your post and I believe this is exactly what I am looking for. I want an economics assignment help from a tutor who can guarantee me a top grade. Do you charge per page or does it depend on the
    bulk of the economics homework help being completed? More to that if the work is not good enough do you offer free corrections.

  34. How much do you charge for a Statistics Assignment Help task? Take, for statistics assignment experts my case, where I need you to provide me with the Statistics Homework Help on plotting a scatter plot with a regression line? How much should that cost? Do you charge on the basis of the workload or have a constant payment?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have submitted my assignment to your website without any challenges. The economics assignmenthelp expert handling my assignment has already contacted me and I am certain that my work is underway. I am just hoping that I will get quality economics homework help. I have a lot of hopes in you and I am just hoping that you will not disappoint me.

  36. As much as there are discouragements, it is true that mathematics is hard. Like in my case, I was never discouraged by anyone about math but I still find it very hard and that is why I am requesting your Math assignment help. I am tired of struggling with mathematics and spending sleepless nights trying to solve sums that I still don’t get right. Having gone through your Math homework help, I am sure that I will get the right help through you. Please tell me what I need to be able to hire you.

  37. Just what I was looking for. I am struggling with my accounting assignment. I want an Accounting Assignment Help tutor to offer me two services. One is to complete my accounting assignments and the other is to provide me with online classes. I believe you are experienced enough to offer both Accounting Homework Help and online classes. I know you charge assignments based on the bulk. Tell me how much you charge for the online classes per hour.

  38. Hey there, I need an Statistics Homework Help expert to help me understand the topic of piecewise regression. In our lectures, the concept seemed very hard, and I could not understand it completely. I need someone who can explain to me in a simpler way that I can understand the topic. he/she should explain to me which is the best model, the best data before the model and how to fit the model using SPSS. If you can deliver quality work then you would be my official Statistics Assignment Help partner.

  39. I don’t have time to look for another expert and therefore I am going to hire you with the hope that I will get quality economics assignment help .Being aneconomics homework help professor I expect that your solutions are first class. All I want to tell you is that if the solutions are not up to the mark I am going to cancel the project.

  40. That is a huge number of students. Are they from the same country or different countries? I also want your math assignment help.

  41. Hello. Please check the task I have just sent and reply as soon as possible. I want an adjustment assignment done within a period of one week. I have worked with an Accounting Homework Help tutor from your team and therefore I know it’s possible to complete it within that period. Let me know the cost so that I can settle it now as your Accounting Assignment Help experts work on it.
