Meet... Me and My Polar Bear

We love spending some of our free time scrolling through our favourite blogs and Emily's is definitely one of our go to sites. Describing herself as "A 25 year old lover of baking, dresses and shoes" she's pretty much a girl after our own hearts. Read on to find out more.

Ok, first up who is Me and My Polar Bear? I am a 25 year old Londoner, originally from Yorkshire, who spends far too much money on clothes, bakes a lot, is desperately trying to learn to sew and takes full advantage of her boyfriend's photography obsession (and website coding abilities, ahem).

How long have you been blogging, and what made you want start it in the first place? Although an avid reader of style and lifestyle blogs for many years, I only actually started mine up about six months ago. I work in finance during the day, so I love being able to write about pretty things I've seen, things I've made and places I've been. And the fact that people are actually reading it makes me pull my socks up and keep blogging!

What inspires your blog posts? I'm constantly inspired by all sorts of other blogs, of all genres and although I love fashion, my blog is quite personal and not totally style focused. Having said that, I manage to mention dresses fairly often and shoes are a massive weakness. Lots of my posts are simply inspired by trips I've made and things I love.

How would you describe your style? If I could, I'd wear dresses all the time. I'm definitely a simple dresser, fond of clean lines and classic shapes. I'm hopeless with accessories, I just can't carry them off.

What three items can you not live without? Errm, super hard! My iPhone is a definite, a good mascara (although I chop and change which I like) and a pretty pair of shoes I can walk a long way in.

What do you get up to when you're not blogging? Amongst other things I love baking, visiting museums, watching films and DVD box sets, walking, reading and making dresses.

Tell us something no one else knows about you... My boyfriend and I have a cuddly toy fox and polar bear (hence the name of the blog) which we have been taking photos of and writing stories about for 4 years! 

And lastly as the Spring issue has been released, what's your favourite thing about this season?
It always makes me smile when the days are getting longer, the daffodils are out and the sun is shining!

Being a niche, wide fitting footwear has steadily been replenishing with products from major manufacturers. After all, not everyone has feet that may adhere to the basic sizes proposed by many mainstream Isabel Marant boot brands. Those that have larger feet often know the difficulties in terms of shopping for shoes.
