When did you fall in love with fashion?
I honestly can’t even remember a time when I didn’t love fashion. I like to blame my mother for this one. My dad is in way over his head with us two…
What is the blog all about?
Our blog is all about style and fashion. We love to feature everyday girls and bloggers who have killer style. You will find some high-end pieces but for the most part, we will feature products and brands we love and buy on a regular basis.
What made you begin The Girls Of Lincoln Park?
I started the blog because I needed a creative outlet from my 9-5. I took my love for fashion and all things chic, and created The Girls of Lincoln Park.
What are some of your “fashion goals” for your life?
Still trying to figure this one out! Ideally I would love to be a creative director or marketing director for a brand.
What is your best advice for girls interested in blogging?
The best piece of advice I received in the past year is don’t look beside you, always look ahead. As long as you’re being authentic, having fun, and driven, you will not only create a following but you will succeed!
