Hello all! I’m Christine and currently live in Chicago where I write The View From 5 ft. 2, a personal style and fashion blog where I share my style with others and encourage people to take risks and be adventurous in all aspects of life.
BB: How do you view fashion as a form of expression?
For me, fashion is all about expressing yourself. Everything you put on your body is an outward expression of your thoughts or creativity; so I like to play with colors, styles and textures and continuously change it up.
BB: What are some summer trends you want to see more of?
I’ve been really into white everything and lots of bright floral prints. I love summer and can’t wait to change up some color combinations and light summer dresses.
BB: What are your top five current style tips that everyone needs to know about?
1: A good pair of jeans is worth every penny.
2: A black blazer or tailored vest is a simple staple that every girl should own.
3: Try wearing button down silk blouses open over summer dresses like a faux jacket, it will instantly give you more outfit options.
4: Now is the best time for Spring cleaning and assessing your wardrobe before you do Spring shopping – make sure you know what you have!
5: Mix it up with prints and solid colors – try to keep a good balance of both for optimal outfit styling options.
