The Liebster Award

Happy Wednesday to all of my wonderful friends! I feel completely honored to have recently been nominated for The Liebster Award. This award is given to new bloggers by other bloggers. I think this is so amazing to see beautiful women supporting each other!

I’d like to give Michele from Classic & Gray a big thank you for the nomination! She has amazing style and has a beautiful personality behind all of her fashionable outfits.


liebster-award-21The Questions from Michele:

1. What is your favorite type of food?

Definitely Mexican. Can every day be Taco Tuesday?!

2. Who is your style icon?

I am so inspired by Coco Chanel. She was classy, polished and a style icon to remember! There will always be something spectacular to learn from her with enough quotes to fill a book. For someone a little more modern, I love Kate Middleton’s style. I bet she has one amazing closet that is full of classy and sophisticated wearable items!

3. Describe your fashion philosophy:

I like to describe my style as classy and timeless. I find it important to invest in classic pieces in my wardrobe so that I’m never at a loss for what to wear.

4. What is your favorite fall trend?

I have been obsessed with Over The Knee boots this fall. Still looking for the perfect pair however. I have big feet (size 9) and small calves, so it’s hard to find boots that fit right! I am determined to find the pair for me!

5. Best advice for a new blogger:

I have two pieces of advice that has helped me along the way. 1) Have the confidence to try. It wasn’t until I finally gave up my insecurities and stopped worrying about what everyone else thought that I was truly complacent. 2) Never force anything. Write because you want to, not because you feel you have to. Writing will always be more genuine when you do this and you will be a much happier person because of it!

6. Coffee or tea?

Fact: I’m majorly intolerant to coffee beans. I never knew that was possible until I took an intolerance test three years ago. I still sneak it in every now and then because I miss it terribly. I have learned to love and crave tea!

7. Go-to stores to shop at:

I am a huge online shopper. The delivery guys know me by name now I’m sure! I love shopping at Lulus, Nordstrom, Express, J.Crew, ASOS, The Limited, Banana Republic, but I’m also totally into Haute Look, Ideeli, and Rue La La for amazing online flash sales.

8. What is your favorite blog for inspiration?

I’m finding myself going to Who What Wear for fashion inspiration all the time! So many great style tips and completely trendy and current.

9. If you could get a free trip anywhere, where would you go?

Europe, no doubt. I’ve always wanted to take a several week vacation and roam the streets of Paris, Rome, Venice, Milan, or London!

10. What is one thing you want your readers to know?

I debated for the longest time whether or not I should start a fashion blog and finally just did it one day! I received a pair of white pointed-toe heels in the mail one day (see I told you… serious online shopper) and snapped a picture. I have been called Miss Molly my whole life from students, family, and friends and wanted it to represent my style, so naturally the name Style Miss Molly came about. I am so glad I worked up the courage to start regardless of all my fears about starting one! It has been one amazing journey so far!

      P.S. Stuart Weitzman is your guy! Extremely comfortable and the shaft is made out of stretchy suede – boots never fit my calves either. Luckily I have found a brand that does!

      • November 15, 2015 / 1:02 am

        Thank you, Kelsey! Your nomination is well deserved! It would be awesome to cross paths someday! I will have to check out some Stuart Weitzman boots! Thanks for the tip!

    First of all, Congrats Molly! You are a beautiful person and as a new blogger you have truly made me feel welcomed! I am sure you have been such a great role model to your students, family and friends. Now, about that Mexican food, you can never go wrong with it, unless you’re on a diet LOL. Kate Middleton is so sleek and classy; I wonder how amazing her closet looks right now? I totally agree, Europe would be a fantastic place to visit and being a social studies teacher; I am thrilled to teach the history behind the European culture. Once again, thank you Molly for selecting me. You have selected some fun and challenging questions that I will enjoy to answer! Have a great Friday and God Bless!!
