Meet a Friend - Callie!

Happy Monday! It is a happy one, right?  I like to think that if you put yourself in the frame of mind that it's going to be a good Monday, rather than a dreary one, it will be! =)  You know what makes today an even better Monday? You get to meet the adorable Callie of Coffee and Cardigans!  Callie is just the cutest college student ever and she's incredibly sweet, too! Say hi to Callie!

Hello! I'm Callie from Coffee and Cardigans! I was so excited when Tiffany asked me guest post for Meet A Friend Monday. I love her blog and wonderful sense of style, so this is quite the honor to be sharing here at Breakfast with Tiffany.

I started Coffee and Cardigans about six months ago to document my day-to-day outfits, but it has quickly become my favorite hobby. And obsession. Seriously, I spend way too much time each day in the blogosphere. My little blog is dedicated to life and style on a college budget. I share outfit posts, sewing and DIY projects, and little bits and pieces of my daily life.

Right now, I am an undergraduate in college working towards a double major in journalism and public relations. And while I'm loving every minute of my college experience, it teaches you a thing or two about life on a budget. That means plenty of trips to local thrift stores and consignment shops. But I am a firm believe that style is possible on any budget. That's what Coffee and Cardigans is all about.

Blogging has given me the chance to really explore my personal style. I'm the girl who wears heels and skirts to class on a regular basis - call me crazy. I love dressing up. Blogging also challenges me to try new trends. Sheer tops? Shorts and heels? Neon? A year ago, I never would have guessed I could pull any of them off. And of course, blogging has also introduced me to some of the most supportive and sweet-hearted people I know. And unlike my family and friends, I don't think they give me funny looks for taking pictures of my clothing and posting them online.

Please don't be afraid to drop by Coffee and Cardigans to say hello! I always love new faces. A huge thank you to Tiffany for letting me share a little about my blog and experience!

Ha! I know what you mean, Callie!  I think my real life friends think I'm crazy (and probably a tiny bit self-absorbed) for photographing myself all the time. ;)  Head on over to Coffee and Cardigans and say hi!

So nice to "meet" Callie. It's a treat to see a college student who actually dresses up and looks nice. ;-)

What a great blog! I have to drop by and visit Callie, she has great style and definitely would not lead me to believe she's working with a student wardrobe budget! Nice ;)

Shea said...

Aww, Callie sounds like a sweetheart and she has great style! I'm 100% with her that looking good doesn't have to cost a bunch--I may be out of college but I still have a budget!
