I met Jessica Quirk last month at Alt. She came up to me at the Winter Wonderland party and said something like, “I’m SO glad you’re drinking beer. I thought everyone here would be drinking white wine. I’m having a beer too!” If that wasn’t enough to convince me I liked her, by the time we’d each polished off a porter, I was sure of it. Jessica is the blogger behind What I Wore, and last year, she published a style book by the same name. But despite all her success, she’s as down to earth, kind, and fun as they come. I’m so pleased to be able to give you a peek into her life today. And, once you read about her here, be sure to head over to her blog, where I’m guest posting today. Hello, blog swap!

I started taking Daily Outfit photos in 2007 and stored them in a Flickr set called ‘What I Wore’. Now there’s over 1000 photos!
Martha Stewart – maybe the perfect home is an illusion, but I’m going for it. I love everything she does from crafty stuff to cooking to home keeping.

Right here at home!
I started in 2007 because, quiet frankly, all of my friends were doing it. [I keep doing it] because it’s a challenge!
