This week I interviewed Frannie from The Blonde Prep. I first found Frannie’s blog because we are about the same age and I loved her style. Plus, all her pictures are gorgeous… and how cute is she?!
1. How did you come up with the idea to start a blog?
In eighth grade my best friend told me she started one, and I was
so jealous because I thought that was the coolest thing ever so
basically I copied her and went home and started my own. The funny part
is that she kept hers for a week and mine is three years and counting!
2. How many hours each week do you spend blogging?
It depends. Probably 7-10 between writing and scheduling posts,
responding and sending emails, and answering questions like these or
doing little things on the side! I usually spend an hour a day because I
consider shooting photos and planning and editing instagrams, etc. a
part of blogging as well!
3. What is your favorite type of post to write?
Outfit posts because I think editing and shooting the photos is so fun!
4. What 3 words best describe your personal style?
I don’t know! People ask me this question frequently and I really
don’t know what to say. I wear what I like and I guess it would
probably root at preppy, but from there I’m not sure.
5. Top 3 favorite places to shop?
J. Crew, ASOS, and Nordstrom… Or Ralph Lauren! I can’t pick!
6. What was your worst fashion mishap?
Umm… Probably everything that I wore from 4th-7th grade.
7. What is your favorite Starbucks drink?
My favorite hot drink is a skinny vanilla chai latte in the colder months or a green tea in the summer.
8. Do you have anything you want to accomplish before summer ends?
I really want to run a half marathon! I don’t know how prepared I’ll be but I’m definitely considering it!
9. If you could travel to any place in the world right now, where would you go?
I would love to travel to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
This is the poorest country in the world so it’s obviously extremely
different than the United States, but one of my goals in life is to
travel and do firsthand service with those who are living in extreme
Thank you, Frannie, for you awesome answers! I love that she wants to run a half marathon before the end of summer… that is a big accomplishment!
