Tell us about your blog.
I started #eyecandy in 2011 as a creative outlet when I moved back to Charlotte after law school. It started as a place where I would share all the fabulous inspiration I came across. After introducing new content, including personal outfit posts, I decided to change the name of my blog to Robinson Style in the summer of 2013. On Robinson Style I share my love of fashion, including great work wear, chic interior design, delicious food, and great music.
Who should read your blog?
While I think there is something for everyone (even the boys), I feel like my blog really speaks to women like me. When I started the blog, I was just out of law school and working in my first job. I would think many of my readers are fresh out of school and are entering the workforce or have been working for a few years.
Describe your personal style.
I love fashion! It has been fun watching my style evolve over the years. Currently, I am drawn to clothes that can be worn at work and for play. I am drawn to tailored classics with a feminine twist. For instance, I love pencil skirts. When I shop for them, I look for something different or unique. I just purchased a rose gold faux leather pencil skirt that I plan to wear t0 work paired with some great neutrals!
What are some of your favorite local places to shop for gifts?
Between school and work, I’ve lived in some great cities here in NC. I love to shop at Design Archives in my hometown,
Greensboro. They have the most awesome mix of locally-made crafts and vintage gifts. I scored some great vintage glasses and lamps from there! For great clothing and accessories, I love Gena Chandler in Raleigh, The Cheeky Bean in Charlotte, and Rebecca & Co. in Greensboro.
What is the most rewarding and most challenging part of being a blogger?
The most rewarding part of blogging is the community. I’ve met some great people through blogging! The most challenging part of blogging is the time it takes. I don’t think people realize how much effort it takes to blog, especially if you have a personal style element. I know I sure didn’t!
What do you love to do when you’re not blogging?
I love to shop (of course), try new restaurants, hang out with friends, and workout. Lately, I’ve been getting back into boxing and I love it.
What does style mean to you?
Style isn’t about being trendy or wearing the most expensive thing. Style is about wearing what makes you feel good and being confident in your own skin.
Who or what inspires you most?
The women in my family inspire me most, especially when it comes to fashion. I always remember watching them get ready as a child and developing my love of fashion because of them. My mom and aunt encouraged me to start my blog.
Any tips or words of encouragement for up and coming bloggers?
I would say that you should write about what you love. There are so many bloggers out there and the number is growing by the minute. You need to set yourself apart. The only way you can do that is to be yourself. I would also say that doing your research is big too. Find out different blogging networks or affiliate programs you can be a part of. Lastly, be active on social media. Bloggers are no longer just the writers behind their blogs. Bloggers have become brands.
