Blog about fashion bloggers living in North Carolina

North Carolina is quickly becoming a stronghold of fierce, fashionable ladies who offer inspirational stories right alongside their expertly styled looks. In the last couple of years, style has seriously improved in the Tar Heel State, and we for one are very excited about it. Whether you’re an Asheville area local or hanging on the coast, there are plenty of inspiring bloggers out there proving that fashion doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Check out some of our favorite style and beauty experts and what they’re serving on their blogs.

Meet Brooke – The Tony Townie

We had to keep it local for our first gal! Brooke Williams (otherwise known as the Tony Townie) is an Asheville native and wardrobe stylist who found a way to blend her passion for fashion with her life as a mother. Williams integrates her lifestyle and her daughter, Harlow, into the beautiful posts and fashion tips that she’s made her career on. She also features our awesome home city of Asheville in lots of her posts, and we have to commend her for that!

Continuing my #selfcare reboot from last weekend into the new week 💚 For far too long I’ve been parceling myself and my spirit into tiny pieces trying to stay on top of everything I “need” to do, leaving very little time for anything I want to do. It’s like every minute of my day is scheduled before the day even dawns. Guilt runs rampant and it seems no matter how I structure my day something goes undone or doesn’t meet my standard and rather than focus on all I have achieved I get mired down with all I should’ve done. A miserable spiral if there ever was one… • So my current approach is take it as it comes. Embrace this somewhat chaotic season of life and realize one day I’ll miss it. To stop worrying so much about schedules I can’t meet and feel good about what I can fit in. To say no when I just can’t accommodate. To let inspiration strike when it’s there instead of forcing something to check a box. To soak up these last few days of summer and realize I only have 16 left until my baby flies on her own wings….what could possibly be happening that’s more worthy of my attention than these fleeting precious moments?? Time sure seems to be passing faster than I ever remember… • Dress and bag: @virtueasheville 👗 Photo: 📷 • • • • • • • #ashevillenc #asheville #ashevilleblogger #828isgreat #iheartavl #ashevillelocal #ashevillelove #blondesandcookies #lovedailydose #prettylittleinspo #theeverydaygirl #belovedstories #thedarlingmovement #alittlebeautyeveryday #myeverydaymagic #momentsofmine #lifestyleblogger #motherhoodinspired #bloggermom #modernmom #summerstyle #summerdress #frenchgirlstyle #strawbag #fashionphotography #fbloggerstyle #styleinspiration #enjoythemoments #summerstateofmind

Meet Melissa – Melissa Chanel

Melissa Chanel is a master of beauty, style, and achieving the perfect hair day always based in Charlotte. She is fashion-forward always and unapologetically so, and we are forever envious of her sweet collection of kicks. She is not only a source for inspiring outfits of the day but hilarious, honest commentary on her own life, including a great piece about online dating.

Follow Melissa Chanel’s Instagram for incredible looks shot in and around Charlotte, and in case you were wondering, Chanel is really her middle name.

Meet Lauren – Lauren Schwaiger

Lauren is a lifestyle blogger with a beautiful smile based in Charlotte. She also spends her time as a real estate agent. There’s a lot to love about her blog–the photos are great, she always looks stylish, and she’s clearly a big fan of wellness–but perhaps the best thing of all is how honest and approachable she seems. She’s not afraid to have a little fun and keep it classy while she does so.

Check out her Instagram to get updates on her casual-chic style.

Meet Kirby – Fashion By Day

Kirby Wolf is the woman before the lens of the expertly coordinated Fashion by Day blog. She spent years in L.A. as a personal stylist, and it certainly shows in the looks she sports. Her style is definitely classic with a heavy dose of West Coast cool. Kirby is one of those people who has the ability to make almost any item look wearable, even a pair of bright orange flared capri pants.

Take a look at Kirby’s Instagram for regular posts that will inspire you to reach outside the box with your look and still pull it off, as well as some lovely shots of her wedding.

Meet Louella – Louella Reese

Talk about well curated! Louella Reese is the creative brainchild of Laura Leigh, a Charlotte resident in her 20s who has an eye for color coordination and detail (plus a seriously beautiful head of hair). Her style is certainly girly but not without a fair bit of spunk, especially when she rocks a pair of overalls. She also talks candidly about her husband and her relationship.

Casual Sunday vibes 💙 just a reminder {because I know you neeeeed another one 🙈} today is the last day of the #NSale and my sweater + jeans are included and surprisingly still in stock! My sweater comes a variety of colors {black, pink, orange, cream, and red} and is perfect to wear now and later, I wear it around the house lots! … On another note, today is legit super casual and laid back for us, as our whole weekend has been! Which I’ve totally loved! May, June, and the first half of July were so busy for us, I’m really appreciating the slow down…before things get bananas the last week of August all the way through September 😬🎉 how’s the end of your summer shaping up to be? A slow-down or busy as ever? … Shop my #nordstromanniversarysale look + accessories by following @louellareese in the app or click the link in my bio for easy access to all the detail #liketkit #freepeople #framedenim #summerstyle #casualstyle #blueandwhite #americanstyle #ootdmagazine #lcdotcomloves #summerdenim #summersweater #thehappynow #thatsdalring pc:

Meet Ferriss – Just Ferriss

The woman behind the blog Just Ferriss is enviable in many ways, including her excellent wardrobe and gorgeous red hair. Her style is most definitely classic with an edge (as it says on her Insta), and she keeps things relatable by recycling key pieces and showcasing items that clearly came from a bygone era.
