This Time Tomorrow fashion blogger Krystal Bick chose two of her favorite Summer dresses from the Leon Max Collection and styled them to perfection! We asked her a few questions in order to get the details on life as a blogger in San Francisco!
What inspired you to start a fashion blog?
I’d have to say it was a total whim! I stumbled upon several personal style blogs recommended to me by friends and was immediately hooked! Plus, I figured, if nothing else, it would help me remember what items I had in my closet (I have a tendency to forget about, or misplace items in the depths of my closet).
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style, while it’s always evolving, is largely classic with a bit of a quirky edge to it. I love combining staple pieces with statement accessories and shoes — outfits that turn things upside down a bit, if you will. A friend of mine once described her personal style as “two parts classic, one part fashion victim” which I think is such a great way of capturing my own — I love experimenting! Fashion should be fun, after all!
What has been the most exciting experience so far as a result of starting your own blog?
I’m so incredibly grateful and, quite frankly, in awe that my blog has lead me to some amazing experiences — I don’t think I’ll ever really come to terms with it, to be honest. But overall, I’d have to say the friendships I’ve made through the blogging community has been the most fulfilling part of this journey. Some of the friendships I’ve made with other bloggers I consider my strongest.
What inspires your style? Is the city you live in a big influence on how you dress?
I get style inspiration from all over really — other street style blogs, Pinterest, movies, art, window displays. Inspiration abounds! The trick is trying to keep up with all of it! As far as San Francisco goes, the city itself has a strong street style scene (often under appreciated, if you ask me!) and I love people watching at some of my shopping haunts, namely Union Square, Fillmore Street and the Mission.
What is your favorite trend for summer? For upcoming fall?
For summer, I can’t seem to stop wearing all white looks! It’s so crisp and classic, yet makes a bold statement at the same time. And for fall — hands down, I’m all about architectural skirts. Last season, we all clambered to get ourselves a peplum that sits at the waist — now, I find myself searching for peplum hem skirts, where the flair sits at the bottom.
What made you select these two dresses from the Leon Max Collection? How would you style them for Fall?
I love both of these dresses because I think they’ll transition really well into fall. I can see myself wearing them with chunky sweaters and studded ballet flats for more casual shopping outfits — and the mixed mesh dress is just begging to be worn with a white button front oxford shirt underneath!
Any last style tips for your fashionable fans out there?
Dress for you — people always appreciate honesty and dressing yourself really is no different.
