I hope you guys get to know a lot about me through Chacos & Chanel but maybe you want to know more or you have specific questions.. introducing Dear Riley: Q&A. I know you probably think I’m kidding when I say I want to be your best friend, but I’m not! I love to meet new people, I’ve seriously never met a stranger. I hope this is another way for us to grow closer & for you to know more about me not just my closet!

Q: Who takes your blog pictures? Did you feel silly or embarrassed to ask at first?

A: I actually have a lot of people who take my photos.. my best friend, Alex Bonds, is a professional photographer (A. Bonds Productions) so she takes most of my pictures! I don’t ever feel silly or embarrassed with her because we’ve been friends for so long. I used to get nervous shooting in public because people would stare, after a couple of weeks though I got used to it! If Alex isn’t around I have my boyfriend, friends or family take my picture. 

Q: Have you always lived in Tenn? Did you grow up there or did you move there when you got out on your own? I’m thinking about moving to the state when I graduate, particularly the Nashville are. What are your thoughts?

A: I grew up in Memphis, TN. I moved to Chattanooga, TN when I was 17 to attend University of Tennessee. I love Tennessee, SO MUCH. I think it’s a gorgeous state and there is so much to offer. I like the mountains in Chattanooga and the city vibe in Nashville. I also love how central it is in the south. You can easily access the beach or head up north. 

Q: How much do the Taylor Paige leggings range in price? PS. Love your style

A: First, thanks so much!! It’s always so rewarding when people love my style. Taylor Paige has a wide variety of leggings, athletic wear, cozy lounge pieces & more– see my full post about TP here!

Q: What tips do you have for girl’s wanting to start a blog?

A: Starting a blog is hard work but it’s one of the most amazing things I’ve ever been able to do in my life. I am so thankful for everything Chacos & Chanel has brought me + all the amazing people I’ve met along the way. For all my tips check out this post I recently shared on SHE Degree.
