Q&A Time - Ask Me Anything!

circle handbag (back in stock!!) // layered coin necklace

I thought this palm print maxi dress was fitting for this Friday's post, since my family is heading to the beach this weekend! We are going to a new beach we haven't been to before, and the best part is that the dogs get to come along with us (I have a teacup golden doodle, Winnie, and my mom has a bichon, Lilly). Just wait 'til you guys see what article of clothing I ordered for the dogs - haha! I can't wait to lay out on the beach Saturday and work on a puzzle book (my favorite thing to do at the beach).

Anyway, my birthday is Sunday and I'm going to be doing a Q&A post to answer any questions you guys have! You have already left some amazing questions on yesterday's blog post about the wedding and when Chris and I plan to start a family! Leave your question in the comment section below and I'll answer them all in Monday's post :)

HAPPY WEEKEND!!!
xoxo

  5. Love this dress! My question: Did you and Chris do any kind of premarital counseling? If so, what did you think? Was it worth it? Was it a waste of time?

  6. I want you to do a blog of how you style your hair... from start to finish. It always looks so amazing, so full.

  7. Caitlin, I love your Q&A posts. I would encourage you to use this opportunity to advise people NOT to ask when you plan to start a family. It's such a personal question, a HUGE assumption, and even if the person DOES have a plan of trying for children soon, anyone might have trouble conceiving or carrying a baby. A more helpful response might be sample platitudes you can give nosy people asking this question, especially when it's someone to whom you need to be polite such as a relative!

  9. Curious about your mom's "mother of the bride" dress. I'm sure she looked gorgeous!

  10. I have too many questions haha. Ok first, what is your go to protein bar/snack bar if you have one? Second, what is your weekly workout routine?

  11. Love everything with palm prints!
    1. Do you have a favorite season or time of the year that you enjoy dressing up for?
    2. Is there a particular source (i.e. Fashion magazines, Pinterest, etc.) that you draw inspiration from for creating your outfits?
    3. Do you sell your clothes anywhere after you’re finished wearing them?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I don't even know if you CAN answer this...but I think the biggest question I have is HOW do you store all of your clothing?! Or do you even keep everything that you showcase on your blog?! Do you keep your favorites and return the rest? I have a hard time rotating the amount of clothes that I currently own...I can't imagine having a new outfit for practically every day of the year and getting good use out of it all. I've seen you repeat SOME clothing items but a lot of them not! Shoes and accessories are different of course...

  13. Your hair! I need to know how you keep it so healthy. It looks so thick, does it take a long time to curl? Do you have any tips for curling your hair quickly?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I haven't found someone who's said they enjoy doing puzzle books in a while! They're so fun, however, and can keep me occupied forever. I never thought of bringing one to the beach surprizingly enough! I will have to do that next time though. A question I have is, "if you could create one thing through your blog what would it be?" Okay, to clarify, there are bloggers who create books, or clothing or makeup lines, recipe books, etc. What would you create if you could and it could be anything! Btw, I love the detailing on the bag. Happy Friday Caitlin :)

  16. Hi Caitlin! I absolutely love your style - and congratulations on your beautiful wedding, newlywed! Can you give a us a sneak peek into your time management - and your home organization (like makeup)? Do you keep a planner to organize all of your commitments? And also, will you share a "messy moment"? Your photos are absolutely perfect but maybe one messy outtake would be fun too! All the best! xoxo!

    Thank you!

  22. Would you be willing to talk about Botox or enhancements you’ve had done to your face? I feel like you’ve evolved to be even more beautiful over the past year or two. Most readers who are your age or older and starting to think about cosmetic work and would love to hear your story!

    1. Yes to this question! I can't seem to find one solid answer! I'd love to know more about the business side of blogging and can send some questions if you're willing to devote a whole post to this Caitlin! I'd actually like to get to know you more so maybe a '10 Things You Didn't Know About Me' post too?
