Last week Dana from Pink Champagne problems nominated me for a Get to Know tag and since I loved reading her post I thought I would answer her questions! I’ve already passed around the Liebster tag before so I’m not going to nominate people again, but if you read this and want to continue with the questions let me know so I can read your post!
And here we go…
How did you come up with your blog name?
To be honest my blog name came from a lot of brainstorming to find something that would work for me. When people say ‘Everything is peachy keen’ it can have so many meanings and having lived in the Southeast and in New England I’ve seen both the sweet and sarcastic side of the phrase. At the time I started my blog I loved the way the phrase encompassed the very sarcastic blunt northern side of me and the sweeter easy going southern side at the same time. (I know, I know it’s a long explanation).
What’s your ultimate go-to outfit?
For fall my go-to is always dark skinny jeans (preferably gap), a striped tee or sweater, and ankle boots. Once it gets chilly I love to throw on a leather jacket too.
Top three blogs to read?
If you could work for your dream company, what would it be and what would you be doing?
I have so many dream jobs right now and luckily I’m still at a stage where it’s ok to experiment (three more years until I graduate!), but I do know I would absolutely love to be on a digital marketing and social media team at a brand like J.Crew or at a fashion/tech start up.
What are some of your favorite posts you’ve written on your blog?
I personally love looking back at posts I’ve written at exciting moments in my life. Two of my favorite posts are about my acceptance to NYU and finishing up my freshman year.
Name the one item you don’t leave the house without, and why?
This is so cliche, but definitely my iPhone. Between using apps like instagram, checking/responding to emails, and organizing my schedule I’m always on it. Studying abroad and only being able to use wifi on my iPhone has also made me realize how much I love the ease of looking up where to go on google maps.
It’s almost Fall: What’s on your wish list?
It is about a million degrees in Madrid so I’ve been thinking all about loose tops and shorts recently, but once it cools down I’ll be all about fall. Chunky sweaters, colored leather, and loafers are high on my wish list. Plus, when I get back to NYC I won’t ever stop wearing my over the knee boots (I’m regretting leaving them at home already!).
Who is your style icon?
I’ve never really had a style icon because I love to pull elements of what I love from everywhere and make it my own. I find I’m inspired by numerous bloggers and business women in the fashion industry who not only have incredible style but incredible lives. Reading magazines and websites like Who What Wear and Refinery 29 constantly inspired me to try new styles and pieces I never thought I would like.
Is there one day you wish you could relive over and over?
I don’t know if there is one specific day, but I would love to relive any of the amazing days I had with friends exploring NYC (favorite place + favorite people = the best days). This past Easter
was my first holiday away from my family, but my friends and I had a particularly amazing day between brunch and exploring uptown and central park, so maybe I’d pick that day.
If you had to pick a decade to live in, which one would it be?
I would have to say now (even though I love the 20s). I think the climate we live in now is an exciting one. Maybe it’s just because I’m finally old enough to understand everything that is going on in the world (or most everything), but I feel like the 2010s are going to be (and already are) huge time for change in terms of how we live our lives.
What’s your ultimate goal for your blog?
My ultimate goal for Peachy Keen is really for me to just keep writing. I really love getting to sit down at the beginning of end of a day to put together something creative that I can share with people who have the same passions as me. I have plenty of career goals that don’t involve blogging, but my hope is that throughout my life Peachy Keen will be there.
Thanks for nominating me Dana! Going through and really thinking about how to answers these questions truly inspired me.
