It’s no secret that I have a serious blog-crush on Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere. I still remember back in 2010 when I was working at People StyleWatch, we did a feature on her for an upcoming issue and I was introduced to the word “blogging”.  After reading her site I thought “Hey! I can totally do that!” and a few months later Poor Little It Girl was born! (For a good laugh, be sure to check out my very first post EVER! Yes, that was 5 years ago this past Friday!) Sure Emily has no idea she’s the reason I started blogging, but her site serves as proof that with a lot of hard work you can really accomplish some great things as a blogger! With that, it was a huge deal in my nerdy little blogging world when C&C launched their own clothing line at Nordstrom and Shopbop. While everything in the collection was perfectly classic and on-trend, I went with soft, oversized and cozy striped shirt because I not only wanted to show my support, but hey…I can never have too many stripes!

    Wow, this outfit is a 10/10! Perfect contrast, that hat is perfect with that chic cut, and your lipstick just seals the whole thing perfectly. Seriously just so good!

    I started blogging about a year and a half ago, but hit a huge rut and quit posting around Christmas time. That’s when I came across your blog and your posts with tips on how to blog and create better content. It really inspired me and made me miss blogging so much that I started up my blog again! I couldn’t be happier to have my creative outlet back. Thank you for inspiring me <3
