We were excited when we had the chance to chat with local fashion and lifestyle blogger Lyndsey Forest of Over My Styled Body. Read more of our interview below where we get some style tips and summer must-haves from Lyndsey!
Hi there! What’s your name?
What’s your Instagram handle?
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a 20-something, sequin obsessed, chai tea sipping, fashion enthusiast; living in Edmonton, Alberta! Three years ago I started a personal style and lifestyle blog, Over My Styled Body and have had a blast creating different looks, home decor, and sharing bits and pieces of my life!
What advice do you have for anyone who wants to become a fashion blogger?
The number one thing, like many things in life, is to have fun! I’m all about getting down to business but if you’re not having fun along the way then what’s the point??
Once you’ve checked that box off, it’s really important to create quality content and stay consistent! This will help you build a following that will have people coming back for more.
How would you describe your personal style?
It honestly depends on the day! But no matter what I love bold colours and fun prints. I don’t like to take fashion (or myself) to seriously and love mixing, matching, and having fun with my looks!
What is your favourite fashion trend this summer?
I have been loving anything that’s off the shoulder. Forget showing cleavage or your legs, it’s all about showing off a little shoulder this summer! From dresses to tops, I’ve accumulated a few pieces that I’ve already been wearing on repeat this season.
If you could only purchase three new pieces this summer, what would they be and why?
A fun summer dress, a great handbag, and a pair of statement sunglasses. We have such a short summer season so I’d skip the boring neutrals and play around with fun statement pieces will you can!
