Can you believe summer is coming to an end?? I can’t. I wanted to blog about the first fashion interview that I’ve been holding onto. I’ve been superstitious about it since I didn’t know how successful writing a fashion blog would be. I know that I still have a lot to learn on how to have a successful blog I am just happy that I have made it this far and will continue to develop my skills. Two months ago, I met a wonderful woman named Sharon at my local Starbucks, who is a hospice nurse (I think nurses are the best!) and she was gracious enough to let me interview her on the spot. I love these types of interviews that are spontaneous and are tons of fun! Enjoy. 🙂
It was a nice summery June day and I decided to get some work done at my local Starbucks. I usually get distracted working at home. I have to admit there are not many coffee shops that I go to that give me the feeling that I should sit and stay awhile. I usually go to the local coffee stand and not even bother with going into a coffee shop to sit down. But on this particular day, I decided that I wanted to give it another go. I went armed with my laptop and iPhone. The Starbucks I chose has a lot of regulars and is known for holding many business meetings there. It was particularly crowded and I found a single table with an outlet nearby of course! I started working on changing my Twitter/IG handles to signify my new career venture. As a sidebar, I have always loved fashion since I was young. I have fond memories of reading Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, and Teen.
I happened to start chatting with a nice older couple and mentioned that I was a fashion blogger who wanted to interview people about their fashion, they said stick around here because there are plenty of fashionable people who frequent here. I eventually met Sharon, a hospice nurse, a fun-loving and glamorous fashionista. She graciously let me interview her and share her fashion tips! Below is her chic summery boho outfit.
Sharon’s Boho Summer Chic Lowdown.
Pink Parisian Shirt: Walmart, clearance $1. Unfortunately, this shirt was out of stock online, I had trouble finding a pink Parisian shirt, but I managed to find one on Zazzle (I like that you can customize the color of your shirt) for $28 or a darker pink Love Amour t-shirt on Etsy for $21.
Sharon’s white sleeveless fringe vest was found in a local tourist town in Levenworth, WA.
I found an adorable crocheted white fringe vest on Esty for $35!
Straw fedora hat with black band: Old Navy.
Bracelets-Old Navy, $8.99 I found some on Polyvore for $16.
Last but not least is Sharon’s Mossimo Purse: Target, $19.99.
Sharon’s Fashion Tips:
•Make a list before you shop.
• Buy basics that will coordinate with all of your outfits.
Sharon’s basics list:
•Different colored tank tops.
•Classic jacket, including a black, navy, or brown Wilson leather jacket.
•Multiple scarfs in different patterns and colors. Yearly Sharon buys a new scarf (I found some adorable ones on Modcloth!) and looks for pieces that go with it.
Thanks for all the love I have received on social media, I really appreciate it. 🙂
Keep smiling, 🙂
