My Gal Friday is all about supporting other bloggers, and sharing some of my favourite pages with all of you.
This week I want to introduce you to Kristin of A Midwestern Mix.
I met Kristin through my amazing Style Collective babes, and have loved following her blog, IG, Twitter, and Snapchat- I can’t get enough of her cheerful spirit, and seriously good style taste. Besides her wonderful style posts on her page on A Midwestern Mix, she does Workout Wednesday and Thursday Three’s that are incredibly wonderful, and always teach me something new.
How gorgeous is she? Her smile is insanely catching. Recently I discovered Kristin and I are shopping kindred spirits! Those blue suede Steve Madden heels she wearing? I ordered them, but they just weren’t right for me- other items we have both ordered and kept recently though! Her top three style picks right now have been sitting in my basket for a while. What can I say, great minds think alike! Since we couldn’t have the same top three picks, I had to choose some others to pair with hers. (Click the picture to shop!)
I’m so glad Kristin agreed to be part of this post, and even happier she agreed to answer some questions. All of her answers definitely made me smile!
Q) What is the most rewarding part of blogging for you?
A) “My favorite part of blogging is all of the amazing ladies I have met. Of course I sincerely enjoy being able to write and share my love of styling looks, fitness routines, and about life in general but hands-down meeting a community of like-minded women has been the best, and most unexpected part. I love seeing others’ passions for blogging and feel like it fuels mine even more and it acts as inspiration to me each and every day!”
Q) What’s your favourite collaboration you have been apart of?
A) “I have loved all the collaborations I have done for various reasons, but I think my absolute favorite so far would be the 3-part series I did with Crane & Lion. Fitness is a huge part of my life and being able to work with a well-known fitness apparel brand like Crane & Lion was beyond awesome. Their philosophy on who they design for and why is something I totally stand behind plus being able to mix my passions of fitness & fashion in those posts was so much fun!” (I loved this series as well!)
Q) If you could have coffee with any person who would it be?
A) “Diane Von Furstenberg for sure! There are a few others that come to mind almost immediately but she is at the very top of my list. She’s the epitome of a Girl Boss. Actually, I take that back, she’s just a BOSS. I admire her drive, determination, and passion for helping other women. Her success is just one of the many reasons I am a fan of her. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that her designs are completely and utterly amazing! I would love to pick her brain on everything from fashion to being an entrepreneur to her charity work and world travels.” (Love love love her!)
Q) What is one item of clothing you love, but can’t bear to part with?
A) “I think my parents would agree when I say I should part with my old Prom dresses! It’s never going to happen though. I feel like they hold a lot of awesome memories and have a special place in my heart so for those reasons, they can continue to take up an enormous amount of space in one of their guest bedroom closets! J Besides those dresses I am actually pretty good about getting rid of clothes I haven’t worn in the last 6 months thanks in large part to Poshmark!” (You are too cute! I really need to update my Poshmark store….)
I hope you enjoyed reading about Kristin as much as I enjoy following her adventures! Go give her page some love here (you can find all of her social media links here as well).
Happy Friday loves! I hope you’re finishing of a week of successes and have a beautiful day.
