I’ve mentioned Julie of Blazers & Bubbly before when I said she was one of the reasons that I would never have a capsule wardrobe. The first time I met Julie, she was wearing the same pumpkin shirt that I was eagerly waiting for in the mail. And it was like “who is this living Barbie with such a fun sense of style?”
I admire Julie for being a breath of fresh air as a woman and a blogger. She’s gorgeous inside and out, but doesn’t take herself too seriously. You’d see that with just one quick visit to her instagram. (And in how she answered my #wcw questions.) I love her playful, colorful, quirky style and she pulls off everything she does flawlessly. Aside from her day job and her blog, she also runs a boutique on her blog with gorgeous bralettes and super fun trucker hats. I’m itching to get one of her Unicorn Barbie hats for my collection once Lent is over. And honestly- I can’t wait to see what she’s going to be wearing this Saturday to our Bubbles & Bloggers Barbie Brunch!
