We sat down with fashion blogger Sara is in love with to talk about her latest loves and style crushes. Sara’s colourful style and fun approach to fashion has landed her our blogger of the month! Find out her top tips on what to look out for this Autumn & who she’s following on instagram.
Hey Sara! Tell us a little bit more about how you started your blog?
When I started Sara is in Love with, I intended to write about hats and fascinators only. After a while, I shared my first look and discovered how much fun it was and that people liked to see my outfits. I had no idea that blogging would take over a big part of my life back then.
What’s your advice for people wanting to start their own blog?
Do what you love and stay true to yourself. Be patient with yourself and don’t compare yourself to other bloggers.
How would you describe your personal style?
A wild mix of crazy things topped up with an overdose of accessories and a lot of cuteness.
What’s been your blogging highlight so far?
There are so many highlights, from being interviewed by my favourite shoe label to people drawing pictures of me and writing me the most lovely emails. I also made a lot of new friends through my blog, and it’s great to be connected to a gang of colourful people from all over the world.
Your house is on fire, which item do you grab?
I think I’d cheat and go for two things: My computer and my Charlotte Olympia piñata bag.
What do you think will be the top trends for Autumn?
Colourful fake fur, frills, velvet, puffers, platform boots and everything metallic. I am ready and excited!!!
I can’t name a particular brand because I shop from a huge variety of different stores. But I got up before five o’clock to shop Kenzo x H&M this week, does that count?
So you’ve got free rein to raid anyone’s wardrobe, who would it be?
I’d choose Daphne Guinness because she owns Isabella Blow hats on top to her amazing wardrobe. I truly adore both women for their uncompromising dedication to fashion.
What’s your key styling tips?
Don’t be afraid to wear quirky things and bright colours. And: Accessories, accessories, and more accessories! Never leave the house without at least a bunch of them, the bigger the better.
Who’s Instagram are you obsessed with?
Since Instagram is my favourite app and I am checking my feed every few minutes, I follow a lot of people. I love the Instagram of the fashion designer CeliaB as an example. She wears a lot of her own creations and no model could ever present them better than this beautiful woman.
Which blogs do you read?
I read the blogs of my friends and lovely colourful people from all over the world. I love bloggers with a very distinctive style, model bloggers showing how pretty they are and wearing all the same Zara stuff make me sad and tired.
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be?
Moschino, Miu Miu or Gucci from the big brands. But my heart beats for young independent designers, and I get very excited when I am asked to wear bold designs as one of the first.
Which is your favourite marc b bag?
I love the Viva bag in pink, especially if you combine it with a pompom charm!
What’s your plans for the future?
Spending a lot of time with my friends and family, getting featured in cool fashion magazines and continuing to curate my dream wardrobe until I turn into a mad advanced style lady and spend the whole day petting cats and dressing up 😀
