Brightside's Spotlight Babe: Elise Richard

Who is Elise Richard? Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I am so many things - a mom, wife, blogger, benefits coordinator, extrovert, goofy. I have been living in Baltimore for 5 years and before then I lived in Louisiana. I love being silly and I am often giggling or laughing about something. If I am not out and about, I am usually home watching one of my favorite TV shows. At the moment I'm catching up on Grey's Anatomy and I am loving Godless on Netflix. I also loooove food. I honestly plan my life around eating. 

We're so obsessed your feed! What're the biggest challenges of fashion blogging?
Thank you so much! The biggest challenge for me is juggling it all. I blog part-time and also work a 9-5 job so my week can get pretty hectic if I don't stay on top of it all. I have to put my foot down and limit my time and say no to things, which is sooo hard! I don't ever want to miss anything, but my family always come first so I have to be selective about what I put my energy into sometimes. I am currently behind on posting on my blog (eeeek!), but I hope to get back on track soon. 


Do you have an article of clothing can you not live without?
This one is a tough one because I can pick so many things, but I think I am going to have to go with jeans (not very exciting I know). They are so versatile and can get dressed up or down. There are just so many endless style options with them. I dress more on the casual side so you can often find me in jeans most of the time.

What are Instagram accounts your obsessing over currently?
I can share soooo many accounts but I will only do 3. These ladies are my constant source of inspiration and I am majorly crushing on their Insta accounts. @tezzamb has the best IG feed and style. I always enjoy seeing how she styles her photos. @peaceloveshea and @carolinevreeland are the best of friends and I always look forward to their IG stories and posts. Their fashion is forever a goal of mine and I love seeing the world through their feeds (they recently started a YouTube channel and I'm loving that too!).


What're you listening to? 
My go-to Spotify playlist has been RapCaviar lately. I usually pull all my favorite songs from their into my own playlist that I shuffle through all the time. Some of my favorite artists are Drake, SZA, Lil Uzi Vert, Cardi B, Rihanna, Banks, and Justin Bieber because I will always be #teambieber. :)

Spring is almost here! What spring trends are you most excited about?
Pink is still having a moment and I'm sooo happy! The pink and red color pairing is trending for spring and I am so here for it! I adore this color combination so much. I am also so excited for skinny sunglasses. I love funky and fun sunglasses and these seasons are no exception with the fun shapes and colors.
