Around this time of year I always make it a point to stop worrying about the shopping/holidays/errands and take time to reflect on everyone and everything I’m thankful for in my life. I also think of the holidays as a one year checkpoint and think about all of the changes I’ve made in my life since the last one. I’m thankful for this blog which has been a constant and huge creative outlet for me. I would still be blogging everyday even if no one read it because of the happiness it brings me. I’m thankful for the people in my life who show constant support and love and also for opportunities and challenges I’ve had this year.

So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving and showing gratitude, I’m dedicating this post to a nomination from the lovely Allison of A Posh Paralegal for the Liebster Award. It’s a huge honor to be recognized by the blogging community and I was completely surprised to receive it, so thank you!

As a nominee, Allison asked me to answer a few questions she put together before passing on this award and compiling my own set of questions: So here it goes…

Q: We all know you’re a blogger, but what is one non-related blogger fact about you?
A: Most people don’t realize I’m an accountant and was even before I started blogging. I actually work a full-time 9-5. I’m also four classes away from receiving my MBA degree in Marketing.

Q: What made you decide to get into blogging?
A: I loved the idea of creating something that was completely mine and using it to express myself in the best way I know how- through putting together outfits.

Q: How did you pick your blog name?
A: Ugh, I’m the worst name picker- but I was going for a name that wasn’t entirely generic and fashion related and the idea of being a ‘knot in a chain’ ie being true to you and not following the crowd really resided with me so I just went with it.

Q: What is your favorite fall fashion trend?
A: Scarves and boots! They’re a classic never-fail each year and are always my fav fall fashion trend.

Q: What is the one article of clothing you cannot live without?
A: Currently, over-the-knee boots because they’re warm and stylish. I have burgundy, grey and black pairs which I can easily interchange with almost any look.

Q: What camera do you use?
A: I got this last year on a hugeee Black Friday steal. I use a Canon Rebel EOS t5i but I switched the standard lens to a Canon Lens EF 50mm for the bokeh effect.

Q: What is your #1 stylist tip?
A: When in doubt go basic or simple, I always find that works best especially when styling a statement piece.

Q: Who is your biggest supporter? Who is your biggest motivator?
A: My mom (and photographer) is my biggest supporter, she’s the best! I’ve found that everyone from family to friends to other bloggers have been huge supporters and I show them support in return. I’m so moved by the feedback I receive and it really motivates and inspires me to try new looks and to keep generating new content.

Q: Your guilty pleasure in the fashion world?
A: My bank account hates me but designer handbags.

Q: If you could give your newbie blogger self one tip of advice, what would it be?
A: Start with WordPress lol. Um in all honesty, just be yourself, work really hard and keep at it if you’re truly motivated by what you’re doing, and when in doubt go with neutral
