Sterling Style

Let me introduce you to Taylor of the blog Sterling Style!  She manages to balance a career while blogging, working out, and cooking up a storm. You’ll love her effortless, feminine style and her positive outlook on life. Read her interview to find out what inspires her style, and get a few tips on dressing for the daily grind. Take a peek at her namesake dress, and browse her top ModCloth picks.

Who are your style icons? What else inspires your sense of style?
My style icons are Ashley Olsen, Diane Kruger, Chloë Sevigny. I am inspired by so many things. I tend to get ideas from magazines, street style, and my friends.

What blogs do you follow?

Too many. I love: A Cozy Kitchen, La Mia Vita, Cupcakes and Cashmere, B Jones Style, and Lucy Laucht (just to name a few).

You have a day job at a financial services firm. How do you add zest to your outfit while still looking professional?

I admit I don’t always look super stylish at work. I don’t like to spend too much money on work clothes. So, I buy staples like black slacks, day dresses, and silk blouses that I can mix and match through out the week. When I want to spice it up, I will wear something like a cute vintage skirt, a lace top, and heels.

If you could live in the pages of a book or on the set of a movie, which book or movie would it be? Why?

One of my favorite movies is this quirky and beautiful piece called Amélie. I love the characters and the romance. I would love to spend some time in that movie, but I would never want to live anywhere but right here.

What would the perfect romantic date be for you?
I am a pretty easy-going girl. All I want is good wine, good food, and great company. Where and when does not matter.

When you’re not blogging, what are your other hobbies?
I started baking more recently, and love it. I am trying to do more cooking, but baking is a lot more relaxing for me. I also like to try raw, vegan, and gluten free options. I also work out, volunteer, and shop. I should be a professional shopper.

Health and fitness seem really important to you. Do you have any easy tips for keeping happy, healthy, and well?
It is really important to me. I feel that in the world of fashion blogging fitness and health are often overlooked. I want to show women who love style and fashion that health and fitness should be a part of fashion. I like a woman who is a multi-tasker. Someone who works, shops, has a family, attends events, and also makes time for healthy meals and working out. That is a woman with style. I recommend that women make health a priority. Schedule a day that includes prepared meals, fitness and relaxation, and eight hours of sleep.

Any secret dreams for the future?

Yes, I would love to work on Sterling Style, and my new site due to launch later this year,, full time. I have so much to share, and I would love to take more time to focus on those projects!

About Turi

When Turi isn’t blogging, you can find her nose behind a book. But reading isn’t her only pastime. She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary? Her son is named after writer Dashiell Hammett. How apropos.
