1. WHAT MADE YOU  WANT TO START A BLOG?
After spending a summer backpacking through Europe, I came home and started my corporate job. I had all this energy and wanted to do something creative. I took some inspiration and advice from a friend of mine Andrea of Blonde Bedhead and I went for it and started my blog.

2. HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME CARAVAN OF STYLE?
When I originally started blogging I traveled a lot and needed to be stylish while living out of a backpack/carry on. So based off that idea of a caravan always being on the go – I got my blog name.

3. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE STORES + RESTAURANTS IN CHICAGO?
So i’m like a broken records sometimes but my ultimate favorite brunch place is Southport Grocer & Cafe and I also really love Au Cheval. As for stores, I love M2Boutique for jewelry and a new store just popped up in my area – Never Mind is great.

4. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
This is the hardest questions because I’m not sure I’ve narrowed down a specific style, but I will say it’s girly. I love dresses, anything with sequin and glitter is a favorite of mine. Let’s say it’s “girly-chic”

5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TREND FOR SPRING?
My favorite spring trend is pastels – I think they can usually be worked in with any outfit and look stylish.
