An Interview with Amy of Stylish Year
Hiya! My name is Amy and I am the face behind Stylish Year. I started my blog as a personal challenge to never wear the same outfit twice and to catalog that journey through photos for 365 days from my 29th birthday till my 30th. I completed that challenge in April of this year and had so much fun doing it that I decided to continue blogging about my personal style and the life that goes along with it!
Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?
Amy: I can't pin point one specific thing or person who has influenced me. My style is constantly evolving and I take my influence/inspiration from the world around me.
What would be the one fashion tip you would give to a friend?
Amy: Being fashionable doesn't have to cost your a fortune - shop smartly and work with what you already have.
3 fun facts about you:
Amy: I celebrated my 5th Birthday in Paris, I got engaged along the Danube River in Budapest, and a little over a year later, we got married on a hill in the Irish countryside - all and all, I love to travel!
What are you currently grooving to?
Amy: Right now I tend to be listening to Zac Brown Band and Darius Rucker on repeat... I love me some country boys!
What inspires you?
Amy: The people, places, and things I see on a daily basis - from my lovely coworkers, to my fellow style bloggers, to my close friends and family.
How are you able to stay fashionable without spending a lot of $$? What are your tips and where do you shop?
Amy: Recently I have discovered the wonderful world of clothing swaps. This is the best way to keep your wardrobe fresh at a very low cost. Check out www.theswapaholics.com to find a swap in your area!
In your opinion, every woman should own:
Amy: A full length mirror! It is important to see your entire outfit before you leave the house.
What 5 items do you always have in your purse?
Amy: Lipstick - in a variety of shades, my wallet, my phone, hair elastics or something of the sort, to tame my wild hair, and of course my point-and-shoot camera.
What are key pieces from your wardrobe that you find yourself wearing over and over?
Amy: Right now I am addicted to my yellow wedges, my long black maxi skirt, and any piece in my closet that has stripes!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Amy: Snuggling on the couch after work with my husband and our two cats - catching up on missed episodes of our fav shows.
What bad habits drive you crazy?
Amy: No matter how hard I try I can not seem to keep my closet organized. My clothes tend to slowly spill out of the closet and take over our bedroom.
On the first day of hot weather, you'll find me:
Amy: Debating whether or not to throw on a cute sundress and head to the lake or jump on the motorcycle with my husband for a ride to the coast.
Three things that are always in my fridge:
Amy: Mango Juice, yogurt, and whatever fruit is in season - right now I am obsessing over fresh cherries.
