For my guest feature, I am excited to introduce to you Jasper of Keepieces. Jasper is one of my lovely friends who I’ve known since I started blogging. She is one of the most supportive bloggers I know who is truly beautiful from the inside out. She is always positive and encouraging in all situations. I can always count on her when I need some fashion inspiration and blogging motivation. Her style is always on point and her constant smile and positive outlook on life is always so uplifting. To help you get to know Jasper, I recently asked her a few questions about blogging, fashion, food, and travel – all the passions we both share a love for!
What do you enjoy most about being a blogger?
Blogging has provided so many opportunities, including meeting other bloggers who share my passion. I love the inspiration I get from other bloggers’ style that influence my own. It’s also become my artistic outlet. I’m an introvert at heart, but with blogging, I’ve found my voice through writing and expressing myself through fashion.
What is challenging about blogging?
The biggest challenge for me is finding the time to blog along with all the other elements that go with it. Everyone reads a quick blog post or see in Instagram picture, but no one knows all the work and time that goes into it. In addition, I also have a full time job in the medical field and trying to find the balance between work, blog, and life can sometimes be a little overwhelming.
How would you describe your style?
I would say over all it’s a classic style. I love combining timeless pieces with pops of color. During the summer, it becomes more trendy and I incorporate the more patterns and prints.
What is your favorite season of the year for fashion and why?
Definitely Fall! There’s something about mixing, matching, and layering autumn pieces that I enjoy. Most of my closet is for fall – my favorite is my coat collection! I love a classic styled peacoat or trench paired with a cable knit sweater and pumps! Of course, who can resist a pair of boots when the weather gets chilly?
If you had to eat one cuisine for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Mexican! It’s refreshing, flavorful, and always comes with a fiesta! I love that there’s only a handful of primary ingredients, but out of those items you can make an infinite number of dishes.
Snacks – savory or sweet?
I have a very sweet tooth. I am addicted to ice-cream. There’s nothing that it can’t fix.
Favorite North American city to travel?
I’m a wanderer and love to travel, I can’t just pick one. But if I had to
pick a place besides home (Los Angeles), I would say the Pacific Northwest. San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle is my trifecta. It’s got a combination of family and urban city feel. All three cities have an outdoorsy, adventurous feel with waterfalls and lush greenery. Not to mention Napa Valley, Voodoo Donuts, and the original Starbucks.
Top 3 travel essentials?
Tough question for a fashion blogger! I never leave for a trip without sunglasses, a light jacket, and my camera.
• Being in medical field (ophthalmology) – sunnies are a must, and always preach about protecting your eyes.
• I always bring a jacket as I tend to easily get cold on the plane or on excursions.
• A camera is a must on any trip – not just for outfits, but I love to capture the beauty of the places I visit.
