We love to hear about how other women live their everyday lives so we were thrilled when Florida-based blogger and teacher Missy of Pop of Style answered a few questions about her life and style and shared her lovely blue outfit featuring the taupe Idina d’Orsay pump.
Tell us about a “typical” day in your life: A typical day in my life consists of waking up at 5 a.m. and having breakfast with my fiancé before we go to work. I’m a high school English teacher, so my days are packed with literature and writing (two of my loves!). When I get home around 3 p.m., I usually work out or take a bike ride then prepare dinner with my fiancé. We like to take the dog out on walks together, visit Disney with our annual passes (best investment!), or try new restaurants in Orlando while getting to know our area a little bit better (we’re relatively “new” Floridians!).
What’s your style mantra? Wear what’s going to empower you and makes you feel confident. Find your own set of style rules and have a signature aspect to your overall style!
Who or what is your fashion inspiration? I find lots of inspiration in color combinations. I like knowing that there’s so many different ways to wear a piece/print/color and I like to explore all the different ways to creatively integrate my own sense of style with what’s trending. I adore Olivia Palermo’s style and often find inspiration in magazines and on Pinterest, of course!
What style rule is made to be broken (and why)? I hate the “you can’t wear white after Labor Day” rule. White looks great in every season and a pair of great-fitting white jeans should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe.
Name 3 things you cannot live without: Family, fiancé, my dog.
Describe your style in 10 words or less: Modern, colorful, eclectic, timeless, relaxed, fun, classy, comfortable, preppy with a touch of boho.
Favorite vacation spot? I loved going to Key West, it’s gorgeous!
When do you feel most beautiful? I feel the most beautiful when I’m surrounded by friends and family and when I’m feeling confident within myself.
Favorite color/pattern/texture? I love mint green, leopard print, and polka dots!
Who is the most influential woman in your life? That would have to be my mom. She has played a key part in keeping me grounded, focused, and inspired even when I’m feeling low.
