BloggerTalk With Sinead Of Love Style Mindfulness | Misspap
Ready for some real-talk with serious woman-crush Sinead Crowe? Since starting her blog, Sinead has done some soul searching, tackling anxiety whilst working as a fashion buyer and discovering who she really wanted to be.As her personal style developed through her happiness, Sinead is now recognised as a fashion blogger with serious sass-factor. We caught up with her on #BloggerTalk to find out more.
WHO IS YOUR STYLE INSPIRATION?
I get most of my inspiration from other fashion bloggers. I have boards on my Pinterest with all of my favourite looks so whenever I'm having a down day I can use it for some inspo!! I love Monikh Dale from Tres Monikh, though I know I'll never pull things off like her, I can try! She has this effortless "cool" look about her and love how her photography stands out from what most other bloggers are doing right now!
WHAT IS YOUR VERY BEST STYLE TIP?
Don't wear a trend just because everyone else is. As a blogger there's a lot of pressure to be wearing the latest must have item and to always be wearing the latest trends. I find that sometimes they just don't fit to my personal style. I never wear a full trend as I'm a firm lover of basics, I usually pick key pieces to mix in with my core wardrobe.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A BLOGGER?
For me it's the flexibility. Though the average day is way more than a 9-5 job, it allows me to be more flexible. If it's a nice day for example, I can go out in the garden and do emails from there or just work in the evening/night! I like being able to fit my job in around my life rather than the other way round! That's super important to me!
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR SOMEBODY WANTING TO BECOME A BLOGGER?
Just start! Starting is the hardest part! Once you begin, you quickly find what works & doesn't work and find your own little niche, so long as you stick to your guns and don't get swayed by what other people are doing!
WHAT'S YOUR BEST ADVICE FOR SOMEBODY WHO SAYS THEY HAVEN’T GOT A PARTICULAR STYLE?
That's fine! I think having a certain "style" doesn't work for everyone! Look at Carrie Bradshaw! If one day you want to wear heels and a dress and the next you want to wear joggers and trainers why not!? Fashion is all about experimenting and having fun with it!
If you want to develop more of a personal style I would say start with the essential core wardrobe pieces and build from there. Find styles that flatter your figure and make you feel confident! If I buy something and don't feel great when I wear it, it's unlikely I'll wear it again!
WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE MISSPAP PIECE AND WHY?
I'm in love with these jeans! They've re ignited my love for skinny jeans, super stretchy & comfortable and I love the frayed hem so much! Any pair of jeans that allow you to comfortably eat a three course meal are a keeper in my books!
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR TAKING THE PERFECT INSTA SELFIE?
I always try and stand against a plain background where I'm facing the light - my room is perfect for this as my wardrobe is white and they face a big window. Natural lighting is KEY people!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I'd say I've got quite simplistic style. I tend to stick to neutral colours and I'm a big fan of anything denim! I just treated myself to a Chloe handbagin oxblood red and this was crazy for me! It adds the perfect splash of colour to my neutral outfits!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EDITING APP?
I usually just use VSCO cam to adjust the contrast, sharpness and brightness. Though recently I've been reading Aimee Song's "capture your style" book (it's amazing for anyone who wants to up their Insta game!) and on her recommendation I've just downloaded Snapseed for editing specific parts of photos!
WHO IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE FASHION BLOGGER AND WHY?
As I said before I love Monikh from Tres Monikh for her outfits and photography! I also love Pam Allier, she inspires me to be a bit more glam and wear more colour!
WHAT'S NEXT FOR YOU SINEAD?
I've just got back from a 3 month trip around South East Asia and I'm absolutely filled to the brim with inspiration and motivation! I've decided to go into full time blogging now that I'm back (super scary!) so I can't wait to see what this next chapter will bring for me! I'll be working like a mad woman!
