{Trendy Talks} Laura Boswell

Along with summer comes new beginnings... and a new series on The Trendy Chick! Welcome to the first post of Trendy Talks, a new interview series I am doing. In this series you will see me interview a wide variety of people, from big bloggers to bloggers who are just starting out. I also will be interviewing people who have companies or write for magazines, or really anything in the fashion industry!

For the first Trendy Talk, I interviewed Laura Boswell from Walking in Memphis in High Heels. Laura was so kind when we were emailing and I have been reading her blog for over a year.



1. How did your blog begin?  I started my blog in December 2012 after my husband suggested it.  I had recently started reading style blogs and fell in love seeing all of the inspiration each day.  I was on Christmas break from school and in slow season at work, so I thought, why not?!  I cannot believe how much it has changed my life in such a short time!

2. How many hours each week do you spend blogging?
  About 12 hours each week.

3. What are your favorite brands?  DVF, J.Crew, Ann Taylor and BCBG.

4. What 3 words best describe your personal style
?  Girly, classic and fun! 

5. We have all had at least one... What was your worst fashion mishap?
  I think I have had much more than one lol.  It was probably when I decided to try a polka dot head wrap.  Head wraps look so cute on so many people, but I am definitely not one of those people.  That mixed with neon and more polka dots, yikes.  Sometimes less is more!

6. Who is your style icon? Why?  I would have to say Gwyneth Paltrow.  She has such timeless style, but she also knows how to have fun with it.  She can pull off a casual glam look or a gorgeous and sexy look, all the while looking as classy as ever.

7. Is there anything you want to do or accomplish this summer? 
  Honestly, I feel like I've already accomplished everything I set out to accomplish this past year.  I was promoted at work, I graduated with my MBA and now we have a little girl on the way this fall.  I honestly don't feel there is anything else to add to my wish list because I feel so blessed already.  Now I'm just looking forward to enjoying each day and soaking everything in.

8. If you could travel to any place in the world right now where would you choose? 
I have always wanted to go to Hawaii, and it is definitely still at the top of my list.

9. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?  Hopefully training to one day be the director of credit at my company, a mother to 2 little ones and enjoying traveling with Shane in our free time. 
I want to say a big thank you to Laura for allowing me to interview her! It was so fun to read all of her answers and I hope you guys liked it as well! Tell me in the comments what you liked about this post or if you can relate to any of Laura's answers!
If you would like to see someone interviewed on Trendy Talks soon or want to be interviewed yourself, please email me at thetrendychickblog@gmail.com with "Trendy Talks" in the subject line!
