Shalice Noel | Interview

Two years ago, around this time of year actually, I was contemplating starting a fashion blog.  I some how stumbled across Shalice’s Instagram page and was immediately intrigued and inspired.  Her effortless style, whitty comments and ability to juggle mothering 4 children with what seemed like ease, made me feel like “I can do this.”  She was essentially one of the main reasons I had the courage and creative drive to start my blog.  Through fear and uncertainty of how this blog would come together I started Ruthie Ridley Blog in January of 2015.  I reached out to Shalice for an interview a few months ago, as I still look up to her to this day, and she was so kind to answer these questions I have always wondered about her.  Read more below!

1)How do you juggle being a mom and a fashion blogger and everything else?!
Like anyone – prioritizing, setting limits and occasionally burning dinner.

2) When did you Fall in love with fashion?!

Since I was 10-11, I kept Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar under my bed. I had an inspiration board in my room that I would constantly change up and I wrote poetry about fashion in college. I cant remember a time when I didn’t like styling or perusing fashion mags.

3)Who is your fashion ICON?!

I love Kate Moss’ laissez-faire attitude. Everyone has a vibe and I’ve always liked hers.

4)What is your favorite fall trend currently?!

Fun silhouettes like bell sleeves and crop jeans. I’m loving basics with a twist.

5) If money and time weren’t an issue what would you do?!

Exactly what I’m doing now: styling, mothering, blogging … but with more sleep.

    This interview truly hit home. Being a stay-at-home with 3 very busy littles, wanting to start a blog and actually doing it took so much time and courage. I waited and waited because I knew I wanted to do it RIGHT. I wanted to give it all of my attention…not half and not even 3/4th. So, that’s why I waited a bit. I still question whether I waited too long and have missed the boat, but I wouldn’t trade my time with my kids for anything!! Thank you for this inspirational interview Ruthie!!!
