... just ask.

I love reading more about other bloggers, and I'm constantly riddled with guilt whenever someone asks me a question in a comment and I don't follow up.  So, I'd love to hear what you want to know about me, and even better, I'd love to answer!

Leave your questions in the comments section of this post, and next week, I'll put it all together in a little Blue Collar Q & A.


  1. What is your favorite color?
    Favorite food?
    What kind of dog is Iggy?
    How old is Iggy?
    I think you're married- have you ever shared your wedding photos?
    Have you ever been to New Orleans? If so, what's your favorite thing about New Orleans?

  2. How/When did you get Iggy? Is he a rescue? What made you pick him/his breed?

  3. What's your favorite outfit color combination?

    Anddd what's your style philosophy?


  4. I know your a funky pants girl. Where do you find such awesome high-waisted pants? Do you need to get them tailored to get the fit just-right. BTW, I think your orange pants and your low-waisted pleated black pants are awesome!

    You've said you live in a small town, how do you deal with wearing avant-gard pieces? Do people stop you in the streets? Do you ever get uncomfortable with the attention you receive?

    How long does it take you to get ready?

    Do you pre-plan your outfits over the weekend?

    What is on your wishlist for summer?

  5. I would like to know how you make your oversized pants look so good. I've got some that are at least 2 sized too big and when I try and do the paper bag thing at the top it just looks terrible. There is too much in the crotch or something.
    I always enjoy your tutorial videos :)

    Can I ask one more? What was your first concert?

  6. Have you told how you and your husband met?

    How big is your small town? (mines 4000, phew!)

    Where did you go to college? What did you major in?

    I love reading your blog. Your style is unique (for real). Plus you crack me up :)

  7. I love that photo. So awesome.

    How old are you?
    And why did you start blogging? (I'm always interested in knowing that).

  8. How did you get into exercise? How long has it been since you've been exercising?
    I can see you are pretty committed, I love to exercise too so I was just wondering =D

  9. Hehe, I feel like a stalker - knowing a few of the answers to the questions already. Guess I'm just a fan, yeah, that's all :DD

    I would love to know if you have any fave food blogs? Or if you have some easy healthy recipes you'd care to share.

    I'm working out thanks to some inspiring women names Kyla and Belen and now I just need to eat a little healthier - you're my go to gal!

  10. Am new here - just stumbled upon your blog. I do like the spirit of the blog from what I've read thus far. This picture of you is so playful;-)

  11. Do you ever get mad? You look like you ever get mad or even curse?

    If we were to hang would be surprised how often I drop the F* bomb! ( I usually whisper thought:)

  12. Would you share your weight loss success story with us?

  13. It's so funny, because I've read your blog for so long I kind of feel like we're friends, and I already know so much about you! You know what I don't know? The fateful question you are never supposed to ask...How old are you? I know you've been married for 6 years but you look so young! Were you married young?

  14. i'm wondering if you could share some thoughts on how to actually start working out. i know that's kinda weird, but i've read that you lead a weight loss group, so you must say something inspirational to those women. i could use some tips! i don't necessarily want to lose weight, i'm more interested in being more healthy/active/toned up.

  15. Yes! I would also like to know what inspired you to get into such great shape, and how you went about it. Please, do tell! :)

  16. Hi Kyla,

    I have been reading your blog consistenly for more than a year now and I have always loved your posts.

    Since you have become somewhat of a style icon of mine (seriously!), I have been meaning to ask you what (self-imposed) style-rules you keep in mind when trying/buying new garments.

    Secondly, I want to ask you if you have ever visited Europe, or my country, the Netherlands.

    Thirdly: Do you own any style-books and which ones do you recommend?


  17. hi Kyla!

    my question isss... why did you decide to start running? did you always enjoy it, or was it an exercise thing?

    what did you do to start off?

    I'm just wondering how you started because I'm kind of interested in training, but I think I'd hate it haha.

    ...I guess that's technically three questions. :)

  18. Hm, let's see... I've been reading your blog for a long time now and I have 7 questions I'd love to know the answer to:

    What is the most you've ever spent on a fashion related item?

    What is your favorite but cheapest thrifted find? (I think I might know the answer to this already)

    How tall are you?

    What kind of job do you have?

    Any advice/tips for those of us who are new to running? I'm talking the basics - runners, stretching, how to start out in terms of time/speed/distance, etc.

    What is your makeup routine?

    What is your favorite season?

    Thanks! :D

  19. What are your favourite television shows?
    Are you a fan of 'Frasier'?
    Have you ever travelled internationally? If so, where?
    How often do you get recognized/How many times have you been recognized?

  20. Hello! Great blog! What kind of music do you like? You should make a playlist for us readers!


  21. How did you and your husband meet?

    Where do you work at?

    What are your top 5 places to shop?

  22. I'm actually asking a question that requires a photo - What does your closet look like? I love seeing pictures of closets and how people organize them. :)

  23. I know I already posted my questions, but a comment above by anonymous gave me another question:

    Do you listen to music when you run? If so, what kind?

  24. I only just started reading your blog but have already surmised that you are a runner. How long have you been a runner and how did you get into it? Do you notice that running helps your confidence levels, your willingness to try new things, etc.?
