Blogger WCW: Christine from @dailykongfidence
Blogger Wednesday is back again and we are completely crushing on Christine Kong or you may recognize her as @dailykongfidence. Christine is a SoCal native with a coveted eye for detail and style in which we are totally obsessed! Continue reading to learn what inspires Christine and how she remains confidently chic when making bold fashion statements. What a Posh Babe!
Can you tell us a little about yourself and why you started your blog?
"My name is Christine Kong and I started Daily Kongfidence as a way to showcase my style based on inspirations gathered from daily life. I chose this name as a reminder to be confident in your choices and in who you are no matter what you wear. As a mother of three, I want to teach by example to create your own definition of beauty and to have courage to confidently express yourself."
Where do you find inspiration for your posts?
"Inspiration can be found anywhere (I’m sure you haven’t heard that one before)! For outfit posts, I am inspired by all of these amazing brands I have discovered while on this blogging journey. Each brand has their own style and when they reach out to me, I love finding pieces that I may not normally wear, but can style and make my own. I am partial to basics for the most part and I find inspiration in pieces that make a statement or have some dramatic flare. On a personal level, I find inspiration in just talking to people and hearing their stories and experiences which led them to who they are today."
How would you describe your personal style and who would you say is your style icon?
"Born and raised in Southern California, my style is pretty representative of the relaxed, west coast vibe. I have a strong appreciation for minimalism and use statement pieces to enhance my basic style. I like to invest in quality pieces for bags and shoes since I will wear these forever, but seek affordable items to add more edge and trend in creating my looks. Through this blogging journey, I’ve surprised myself by realizing I am not compartmentalized into one category of style. I like to wear what works for me and I make it work. I have so many style icons depending on my mood, but Olivia Palermo never ceases to amaze me. I also love the effortlessness of Erica Hoida of Fashioned Chic Styling and the streetstyle of Elle Ferguson."
What does a typical day in your life look like?
"Being a mom basically has me running around for drop offs, pick ups, and afterschool activities throughout the day. However, I usually start the day with a latte and reply to emails and check my Instagram feed all morning. I try and shoot my outfit posts once a week and write my blog posts while my kids are in school or when they have gone to bed. I like to take some time for myself a few times a week too by going to the gym, reading, or visiting other blogs."
Where do you hope your blog will take you in the future?
"I started this blog as a hobby and passion, but since then it has become so much more to me and to my followers. It would be a dream of mine to one day walk down the street and have people recognize me from my blog and say that I have inspired them to be confident in their style."
