The next personal style blogger in my Blogger Spotlight series is Kassandra Brooks from the blog The Haute Blonde. Based in California with a passion for travelling and excitement, I loved the idea of catching up with her to see what her interests and passions were! Not to mention her pastel pink hair is gorgeous! Check out the interview below!

What’s your history in the fashion industry?

The fashion industry has always intrigued me. My dad is a photographer and helped me build my portfolio when I was sixteen and I have been modeling off and on ever since. I was lucky enough to land a steady gig with an online fashion retailer. I worked as their spokes model for five years gaining experience in styling, designing, blogging and YouTube. Shortly after leaving I decided to simultaneously launch my very own online fashion boutique (www.ImHaute.com) and my fashion blog. Fashion is and has been such an important part of my life, I don’t know what I would do without it.

What made you decide to start your fashion blog?

I was in a transitional period of my life and embracing change. I enjoy trying new things and pushing my comfort zone. I was comfortable making fashion videos for YouTube and thoroughly enjoyed it but I had not one clue how to start a fashion blog. I decided to just go for it and figured that I would learn as I went. If you wait until you have all the answers you’ll never try anything new.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I follow hundreds of fashionistas via instagram which provides a vast variety of fashion inspiration on a global scale and just happens to be one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I’ll admit it, I love instagram. I get my daily inspiration to work hard and to be an overall better person from my loving supportive system of family and friends. I’m pretty picky on who I keep in my inner circle because I believe that you are who you surround yourself with. I choose to surround myself with loyal, honest and positive people. Life is too short for anything less.

How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style is ever evolving. I feel most comfortable in truly feminine fashion but I don’t identify with one particular style. Instead, I like to experiment with fashion, mixing trends and trying new things.

Do you have some favorite pieces in your closet?

Doesn’t everyone? The first thing that comes to mind are my hot pink patent leather Louis Vuitton ballerina flats. I have literally had those shoes for five years and they are still in style and intact. They are perfect for traveling. I also pretty much live in my Hudson skinny jeans. They are super comfortable and pair perfectly with any type of shoes.

What one thing can’t you be without?

I seriously cannot leave the house without makeup. I would probably shave my head before giving up makeup.
