Summer blogger series: VDV X KAITLYNN CARTER

flynn skye crop top We're so excited to launch our latest Summer Blogger Series Lookbook with the gorgeous Kaitlynn Carter of The Western Wild.  You might recognize this babe from our "Haunted" shoot last year.  Going for a slightly different feel with this lookbook, we drove up north to the beautiful beaches of Malibu and spent the day shooting in the warm, California sun. Our inspo for the shoot was a 70's beach babe with a slightly vintage feel.  Her natural beauty (and bangin' bod!) made it so easy to capture some amazing images, shot by one of our favorites, Kyle Smith from Libra Ego.  Hair and makeup done by the talented Suzie Kim, and styled by yours truly! Read below to get to know Kaitlynn and the inspiration behind starting her blog, her style, and her favorite things to do in her free time.  And of course, don't forget to check out her blog for even more style and lifestyle inspo!


How did you first get into blogging? I moved to LA and wanted to write. Someone suggested I start a blog to keep my friends and family back east posted on what I was up to. I had a lot of fun doing it and once I was able to make some money too it became my full time thing!

What inspired you to start your blog?  Really just wanting to write. I had a blog years ago when I studied in Italy, so the whole concept was very familiar to me, but in the past I hadn't had much of an audience to write for. I love that now I get to inspire people to travel or give helpful tips here and there! It's fun for me to share through writing.

What is your favorite thing to blog about? Travel, by far. I could go on for hours and hours, even days maybe, with hotel, restaurant, and sightseeing suggestions. Sometimes I think I should be a travel agent because I even enjoy the process of finding and booking flights for other people!

Favorite thing to do in your spare time? I like to hang at the beach and play with my dogs!

Who is your style icon? Sienna Miller and Kate Bosworth are both favorites. Effortless, feminine, a little boho.

How do you describe your own personal style? Well, I want it to be like Kate and Sienna's!! It's evolving, but I would say it's really my own, which I like.

What is the hardest part about having a blog? Keeping up with all the content you have to create! It takes an entire day to put together a post that takes your readers 2 minutes to read, and then they instantly want more. It's more than a full time job!

Favorite part about blogging? Being my own boss and getting to be creative with the content.

What’s your next fashion must have? I need to stock up on more hats and scarves!!
