Caitlin from A Little Dash of Darling is definitely one of our favorite fashion bloggers! She’s always putting outfits together that we would totally wear but making it look ten times cooler than we could ever. She loves to mix patterns and colors and always has a great accessory to pull everything together. Her blog is filled with clothes that we’d gladly fill our closets with and she’s always teaching us new rules about what to wear together. It’s always inspiring to have someone else put some ideas together for you and give you that confidence to give it a try. That’s one of our favorite things about fashion bloggers!
Get a peek at what Caitlin’s go-to’s are when it comes to beauty, inspiration, and of course, fashion!

How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as ultra feminine with a mix of modern edge. I love a classic outfit with tailored pieces and a little bit of feminine flair, but I also love adding in a little bit of the unexpected. I also enjoy taking risks and am not afraid to experiment with my style so I enjoy trying new things.
When and why did you start your blog?
I started my blog in my third year of law school to give myself a daily outlet from those boring old law books. I had been thinking about starting it for a while but never had the guts to pull the trigger. Finally I decided there’s no time like the present and was excited to focus on something that I am truly passionate about: fashion. My attitude was if it blossoms into something then that’s awesome, but if not that’s ok too because it’s a forum for me to express myself.
Where do you find inspiration for your style as well as everyday life?
I find style inspiration everywhere from people on the street to Pinterest (greatest invention ever) as well as my fellow fashion bloggers. Music also has a healthy habit of significantly influencing my mood and I love to window shop and “see what’s out there” as I like to tell my husband.
What are your favorite fashion trends happening right now?
I am currently loving the modern simplicity of styles today, as well as all of the fun 50’s full skirts and the updated saddle oxfords. These two trends are near opposites but are particularly fun to play around with.
