When and why did you start your site?
Early 2010. I didn't have much ambition for it at the time, it was just something fun that my boyfriend had convinced me to do!
How would you describe your site?
It's a personal style blog, through and through!
Where do you get your inspiration?
From the women out there who look so well put together and elegant but not stuffy. They're definitely a rare breed, which makes coming across one all the more special!
Who are your style/beauty icons?
Olivia Palermo, Chriselle Lim. They're definitely two individuals that possess the aforementioned qualities to me
Describe your personal style.
Hmmm.. hard to put in a box but I guess it's pretty classic/feminine most days and I love to add little whimsical touches for personality in a look
What was the best style/beauty advice you were given?
This wasn't personally given to me but "Be faithful to your own taste because nothing you really like is ever out of style." - Billy Baldwin. For beauty, drink lots of water, get plenty of sleep and take off your make up before bed!
Where are your favourite places to shop?
I shop everywhere and can probably find something I like anywhere clothes are sold. Looking at my blog, though, I'm sure it's pretty evident that I'm a sucker for Zara. I also like Asian websites like YesStyle because their pieces tend to fit petites much better than most of North America's offerings.
What are your favourite trends for this season?
Definitely a good print and I can't wait to play with the peplum silhouette!
Style/Beauty Pet Peeve?
Wearing too many trends at once
What do you never leave home without?
Wallet & phone
What are your five essential items that you think every woman should own?
Slim fit trousers, a fitted cashmere sweater, versatile and good quality leather flats, a wool/cashmere coat and a classic button up silk blouse. All about the classics!
Where do you see yourself and your site in five years?
I'm not sure I'll still be blogging, to be honest! Hopefully I will have started my own family by then.
Tell Petite Adventures readers something random about yourself.
I used to read in the shower when I was a child, literally holding a book in one hand while shampooing, conditioning, etc with the other. When the book got too soggy from the steam I would throw it over the shower door. Haha!
