We are excited to introduce you to another member of the Karina community - Bogi Kenney of Hampton Roads Fashion & Style. If you've been following us for awhile, you know Bogi to be a classic beauty who always effortlessly pulls together timeless looks. From classic pumps and clean blazers, paired with our dresses of course, we just love her polished style!
How did you get into blogging and what do you love about it?
Originally, blogging served as a bridge between me being in the United States and my mom in Hungary. Moving onto this side of the pond reduced my personal time with mom dramatically. Fashion and style has always been one of our favorite topics to chit chat about when winding down and this platform allowed us to continue that. Plus, mom got to see her daughter and give me feedback on style, colors, and even posture.
What do you do for work besides blogging?
I work as an Executive Assistant to the Vice President of Finance and IT at a manufacturing company. I pound away on excel spreadsheets, prepare reports and presentations, and do analytical work. And of course I do my best to keep my boss' calendar straight and make sure that he gets on the right plane at the right time.
What would an ideal Saturday look like for you?
I try my best to do what I love the most at the weekends (not including house cleaning and laundry of course). If the weather is good to us, I get up early and we start shooting for the blog as soon as the sun comes up. After that, Rick and I wind down with a good cup of cappuccino and catch up with each other's lives. If it truly is an ideal Saturday, then my husband is off work and we head out to the local farmer's market, take a bike ride alongside the beach, and finish off the afternoon at a local restaurant.
Sounds like the perfect Saturday to us, too! Any other hobbies you would like to share?
I absolutely love, love experimenting in the kitchen. I find myself browsing through recipes on Pinterest quite a lot and my dear husband gets to be the "taste master."
Doesn't sounds like a bad job at all!
What are your favorite Karina styles and why?
I adore the Megan, but my all time favorite would have to be the Ruby. The cut is just so utterly feminine and the faux wrap design truly accentuates your shape beautifully, whether your curvy or on the skinny side. The top portion wraps on your chest nicely and the dress sits in place and looks flattering even if your breasts double in size. The Ruby is a wonderful option for expecting mommies. I feel comfortable, confident and ladylike in the Ruby.
How would you describe your personal style?
My style is classic with some modern elements. For the most part I like to keep my wardrobe filled with clothes that have great fabric quality and designs that can be worn for years to come. I like to complement my "basics" with trendy elements to stay fresh and to push myself out of my comfort zone every so often.
If you could travel anywhere where would it be?
I would love to go back to Kazakhstan and explore the country more. A trip to China and a cruise along the Danube River is also on the bucket list.
