NEW BLOG

Hi everyone!! I know I have been absent from this blog for a while now, but I have good news! I have been working on a new blog! It is now live at http://www.mondayblonde.com and I hope you will follow over and enjoy the chapter I am enduring in! I will miss The Blonde With Hips blog, but you can still find that sections in “Kat’s Korner” on the new site! I hope to see you over at the new location, xoxo, Kat

Oh Kate Moss.. Who wouldn’t want to wake up, grab some coffee and drool over the ageless Moss?  Yes, thats exactly what I am doing right now. The queen of fashion and the best supermodel (in my opinion) to ever existed. She has had collection’S’ with TopShop, worked with some of the best designers and photographers in the industry and thousands, possibly even millions of women and men look up to this badass. So on that note, I’ll leave you to the rest of your week, do something spontaneous and adventurous. See you thursday! xoxo

Update From Blondie

Good afternoon (or evening, wherever you are reading this) everyone! A few new exciting announcements to make on this hot, muggy Sunday, hooray! 

1. My office space is set up! The excitement I have is kind of unbearable and I apologize for anyone that comes in here because I will torture them by showing them everything I have set up and done. Of course it actually isn’t fully completed yet… Yes, it is set up BUT the flooring hasn’t been fully laid yet, nor new shelves and a desk hasn’t been built either yet.. Things still need to be painted, as well as some things need to be hung and I haven’t been able to fully purchase all the little nick nacks yet, I thought it would be good to replace things one at a time, but until that happens, I do have a desk, an awesome lamp, and my coffee maker by my side. I am set!

2. Septmeber 1st, a lot of new changes will be happening.. beware my fellow readers , beware.. All good news (I hope) from my end. Sep. 1st I will be starting some photography. I have always loved photography and the beauty and nature of it and how one photo can spell out a thousand words. I have the pleasure of being able to touch a little bit of everything I love to do with the job I have, which is another huge passion of mine. 

3. Last but not least of my updates, because of course there will always be new and change coming into my life. Again on September 1st. a brand new website will be coming!! I won’t throw out details or the name quite yet, give me a couple of weeks for that to be announced. Exciting projects and a whole new site. Now that I have my office and I’ve actually gotten my time management skills together, instead of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, I will have time to put into my site and projects. The Blonde With Hips will still exist, but in a different part of the site. I have always wanted to grow my blog into something big and I have had a lot of support from my readers, as well as my loved ones, so its time to spread my wings and learn to fly. The one detail I will give you, it is more of a lifestyle blog, like I said though, The Blonde With Hips will still exist in a separate area of the site, so not to worry. I am hoping you will join me in this ever growing journey and the passion I have for fashion and the art world. 

See you tomorrow for inspiration Monday, xoxo

No matter what your style is, I can bet you that 80% of your closet is denim. I pulled some of my favorite looks I saw on my Pinterest and Tumblr pages, from Kate Moss to Leandra Medine from Man Repeller. My go to denim is flared jeans (I’m extremely short, so they make me look a lot taller) and boyfriend style jeans. Each style for me has to be high wasted (again, due to being tiny).

What’s your go to jean?

Inspiration: Twin Power

Hello everyone! Okay, things are settling down a tad, not much, but a tad.. I am making my blog and creative side take more presence in my life, since this is what I want to do with my life. This weeks inspiration is the Olsen twinnies. These girls are extremely powerful, just with the way they hold themselves and they are complete leaders in the fashion world. The Row has taken off to be on of the best fashion brands around (hats off to you ladies) and then they also have the line Elizabeth and James. Now their style is minimalism meets grandpa look, which totally works for them, again hats off to you two for being so petite and being able to layer anything and everything you want to put on without looking like you got swallowed by a swamp – AKA what I would look like if I attempted so. 

I wanted to thank real quick my current followers for sticking around even though I have not been very vocal on my blog for the past month or so. Love you all very very much, have a fantastical Monday, xoxo

Inspiration: The Power of Being You

Hello hello hello! Yes, I officially suck at running my blog… I can feel the shame and disappointment radiating from you fabulous followers! 

Well thank goodness it’s Monday! I’m sure you guys are wondering why I am so lively and excited about a Monday, but I leave for the good ole’ LA on Thursday! If any of my followers are from LA, let me know! I’ll be at The Grove on Thursday and Santa Monica beach all day Saturday. 

My inspiration for this week is being yourself. Be You. 100%. No doubts, no cares. Don’t worry about what people think of you. If you want to wear a palm tree on your head and unicorn sneakers, go for it. You will never be truly happy unless you are committed to being yourself. There’s so many outside forces nowadays that I notice many follow the crowd or trends and it breaks my heart. I’ll admit it, I was one of those at one point in my life.. Here I am talking like I have had 1,000 years of life on me HA! Finally one day, I promised myself no more of being someone I’m not. 

Have an incredible week lovely’s! xoxo (p.s – I’ll be having an LA Diary up next week and a few more posts up this week before I leave!) 

Inspiration: What You Wear, Is Who You Are

Yet another Monday goes by and I give you my weekly inspo to get you motivated or inspired throughout the week, at least I like to hope so. Yesterday I was at Comicon (Marvel lover over here!), and no I did not dress up, but if you do follow me on my social media sites you can see my boyfriend and I wore Captain American tees, awh so precious! I bought a print of Darth Vader in a suit and tie, and it is probably one of my most favorite pieces I own now. Who doesn’t love DV all classy and what not?

Now we all know on weekends or for special events, you bring out the best “you” you possibly can show off. What do you wear during the week though? I can tell you right now mine consists of work out clothes (not something you guys want to hear from a style blog, I know) and jeans/jean shorts and tees. Lately I have noticed my style has been evolving and just really realizing more and more of who I am and what my style taste ranges to. Minimalism has really been my go to lately and I am pretty sure it will be like that for a while.

Have a wonderful monday loves! xoxo
