Nice to "Meet and Greet" Jennifer.

Welcome to another "Meet and Greet". Today I have one of the Newest Bloggers out there, but whose Blog is blossoming daily because Jennifer from The Brandied Pair puts together some Awesome, Chic, Elegant, Colorful, Pattern-Mixed & Super Stylish Outfits with some Great finds from J Crew. I only found Jenn's Blog a couple of weeks ago but her Style caught my eye right away and so did the name of her Blog. I like it that she collaborates with her Husband on the photos and while she shows off some Beautiful, Stylish Outfits of what she wears daily, he gets to show off his Photography Skills, having his Wife as His Muse. Read her interview below and stop by her Blog. 



1. Introduce yourself in 2 sentences.  Introduce your blog in 2 sentences.  Why did you name your blog they way you did?
I am Jennifer, one half of The Brandied Pair.  I am a lover of all things JCrew, Tory Burch and Kate Spade; I guess you could say I love classic pieces with a twist.  The Brandied Pair serves as an outlet for my husband (the photographer) and I (the fashion fanatic) to express our personal interests as well as our love for each
other.  The name is actually quite random, I was trying to come up with something clever and The Brandied Pear came to mind.  In order to make it interesting I changed the spelling of Pear to Pair, since there are two of us.
2. Why did you start your blog & when did you start it?  
The Brandied Pair is a baby, I have only been blogging since May 15, 2013.  For the past year, I had wanted to start a blog but lacked the confidence.  I was worried about what people would think and I was scared that no one would be interested in what I had to say.  A good friend of mine gave me the push I needed.  She encouraged me to put myself out there; I am so glad she did!
3. What is your everyday Work Dress Code?
I am an insurance agent, so my work dress code is business casual.
  
4. What Colors do you incorporate more in your wardrobe & which ones do you stay away from and why?
Right now, I really love navy, mint and white. I don’t really shy away from many colors; However, I do not wear a lot of black. I have a very fair complex and feel black may look a bit harsh.
5. What are some of your favorite accessories & how do you use/wear them?
I have a huge obsession with handbags and jewelry. Statement necklaces and stacked bracelets are a part of my everyday outfit planning. Very rarely do I leave the house without my jewelry.
6. What is currently missing from your closet or what do you like to add to your closet & why?
Dresses!  I was just looking in my closet the other day and noticed that I was seriously lacking in the dress department.  I would like to add more because dresses are so effortless and versatile. Not to mention perfect for the warmer months.
7. Do you have a Monthly Budget, if so, how much is it?
I am always on a budget.  Clearance racks and sales are my best friends.
8. What are some of your most favorite stores or brands, including shoes?
Like I mentioned earlier, I am a lover of all things JCrew, Tory Burch and Kate Spade. I also frequent Nordstrom's and Forever 21.
9. What have you yet not done in your blog but you want to?
I would really love to start doing collaborations.  I have a yet to have any giveaways but have a few planned for next month.  Make sure to check them out!
10. How has your blog grown so far? How many followers do you have? How do you work into growing your blog?
My blog started with just a handful of followers, mainly my best friend and my mom.  I am still in the beginning stages of building a following.  Growing a blog is a bit tricky; I am instagraming, facebooking, pinteresting and linking-up.  I would love some advice on how to grow my following!

11. Below include 7-8 different outfits you have worn so far that you have loved & give some
quick explanations for each.

I love this outfit!  This unstructured blazer with those bow heels make for the perfect girl's brunch!

I wore this to my little brother's high school graduation.  Comfy yet put together!  (the motto i live by)

This blazer may be one of my favorite articles of clothing.  I wear it all the time!!

This is my super saving skirt.  I snatched this bad boy up at a JCrew warehouse sale.  The price on the tag was $695, I paid $40.  Can you say EXCITING?

Heels and Bling always make for the perfect date night outfit.

My take on baseball game attire.  Comfy yet put together! (I told you this was my motto)

I wore this to my little brother's graduation party.  It was located in a concert theater; so I need something a bit edgy.  I feel like the pops of metallic did the trick.

12. What is one last thing you want to say to anyone who reads this?

Thank you for taking the time to read about me and The Brandied Pair.  Your interest and support is greatly appreciated!  Make sure you join my site so you can be a part of the future giveaways!!

Thank you Ada!  You will never know how much I appreciate your support!!



P.S. Let me know through the comments if you want to be part of this series where I will have you introduce yourself and your blog through a Guest Post. The questions are the same for everyone. All you got to do is 1) follow my blog and 2) your blog should be fairly new, from 2012 and forth. So if you have been blogging since January 2012 or later, this is a great opportunity for you to showcase your blog and perhaps gain some new readers & followers along the way. If you decide YES, we will talk via E-Mail. Thanks. =)
