Introducing Clare of Clarabelle

  I know it's been awhile since a new post, but this feature has been worth the wait. Clare is a lover of beautiful things, and her blog showcases that beauty, which includes her fabulous style. When I found her blog, I clicked through pages upon pages captured by the inspiration. So it's my pleasure to introduce Clare and her lovely blog Clarabelle.
So tell us more about yourself, who is Clarabelle?
 I am quirky, sarcastic and I love to laugh. I think my blog is a pretty accurate depiction of my personality. While I am a fashion blogger, I also like to call my blog a lifestyle blog. Clarabelle is all about looking and feeling your best; not taking yourself too seriously and celebrating women for being completely awesome.

How did you get your start in blogging?   

I started Clarabelle because I didn't want to study for my final exams in grad school. I was at a point where I would have done anything to not do school work because it was so darn boring. So I though, okay, I'll start a blog tonight. I had no idea what I was doing or even the direction the blog was going to go. But I quickly found that I loved blogging. So the rest is history! 


What are three must haves a woman needs for her closet?
A pair of jeans that fit just right, a black blazer and a white button down.

Who are your style icons, where do you get your inspiration?
Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelley, Jackie O, Michelle Obama, and Kate Middleton. I like classy, timeless style. Lots of tailored lines, clean silhouettes and not an ounce of "polyester blend" blend in sight haha!
Spring is almost here! What are you looking forward to wearing this Spring?
A-line floral dresses, ballet flats with large bows on the front, gel manicures, aviator sunglasses with frames that are a tad too large.
