Featured Blogger -- Jenn, The Stylish Housewife!

It was love at first tweet. Yep, once again, we thank social media for introducing us to the lovely writings of The Stylish Housewife. We are thrilled to introduce you to Jenn -- one of our favorite stylish housewives ever! Love her. Love the site. Love everything about this Stylish Housewife. 

{1} Tell us a little about yourself and your blog, The Stylish Housewife.

I started my blog The Stylish Housewife after my husband and I decided that I would be a stay at home mom. After I had my son, I realized that I started wearing the same thing every pants and a t-shirt (and sometimes I stayed in my pj's a little too long). Then I came across the 30 for 30 challenge over on Kendi Everyday and it changed the way I looked at my closet. I used to look in my closet and think I had nothing to wear and now I feel like the possibilities are endless! I LOVE finding outfit inspiration on my favorite blogs and it makes me SO happy when readers comment on my blog that I've inspired them!

{2} What made you decide to enter the blogging world?

I started blogging back in 2008 and have a wedding website called Bridalinquirer which I started after planning my own wedding on a budget. I wasn't sure how to transition it into a personal "life after the wedding" blog so I started my new blog! I have made SO many "friends" through blogging and twitter. I just really LOVE the blogging community. There is SO much inspiration out there!!!

{3} What blogs do you make sure to read daily? 

Oh my gosh...there are SO many! But I read Cupcakes & Cashmere, Love Maegan, Hollywood Housewife and Atlantic-Pacific EVERY day.

{4} What is your favorite OOTD? 

Right now I am addicted to maxi dresses and skirts! They are so easy to dress up or down and are SO comfy! I am LOVING all of the fun prints and bold colors too.

{5}  How would you describe your personal style? 

My first thought is feminine. I love dresses and actually feel more comfortable in dresses than in jeans. But I love trying new trends and challenging myself fashion-wise. I actually texted one of my BFF's to ask her how she would describe my style and she said "clean and feminine". Then she said I was definitely a "Carrie Bradshaw from SATC". What a compliment...I wish! =)

{6} What are some of your favorite style tips? 

I used to think that you should get rid of things you haven't worn in over a year, but starting my blog has turned me into a bit of a hoarder so now I say hold on to EVERYTHING. Odds are that it will be back in style! My best advice is probably to splurge on classic pieces that won't go out of style and go cheaper on the trendy stuff. But most of all, wear what makes YOU feel good!

{7} What is up next for The Stylish Housewife

I am looking forward to blogger features, more giveaways and maybe even a clothing swap or two. I have also done a "favorite things" gift exchange with another blogger and we are both going to reveal what we got each other on our blogs! I am a BIG fan of blogging events of all kinds so if you have a link up, I'd love to hear about it! I hope you will stop by and say hello! 

How can you not love The Stylish Housewife? Seriously adore Jenn!
