Being a style blogger isn’t easy. You have to plan, have great and fabulous photographs, be inventive, be unique and love all things fashion. Brandy Gueary, who blogs at Authentically B, is all of this and more, and she thrives on looking different and unique.
Not only is she a local style blogger, but she also wears many other cute hats. Brandy is a 4th-grade teacher, mommy to an adorable three-year-old little boy named Grant, and a wife, she also is a DIYer for accessories and home with tutorials on Authentically B.
How is she able to accomplish all of this?
I do a lot of work when the boy is sleeping.
Brandy loves everything she is doing, and it is tough for her to choose her favorite hat. As a teacher, Brandy loves that she is giving back to her community by being a part of the learning process, and helping to mold young minds. As a style blogger, Brandy loves sharing her story through though her sense of style to show what’s accessible and how it can be pulled together in a chic, bold and edgy way.
Brandy started blogging when she and her husband bought a 1920’s home in the historical Sugar Land area and began to remodel it.
Brandy turned blogging into a second career by being consistent and proving herself through her work ethic. She had to prove everything she said relentlessly.
Around that time I continually documented the process and all of our steps. It was then that I started blogging. Soon after I added the fashion element because I felt like I could help others get their creative juices flowing through fashion how to’s.
As she wanted to share more of her fashion related ideas with others, Authentically B was the natural progression for her.
Brandy adores classic pieces in classic colors, and she likes to include at least one bold or edgy element to each look as well. Her fashion DIY include everything from earrings to collars, and the instructions are easy to follow. Her goal is to make her readers realize that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have fabulous things and it’s fun to do it yourself!
If you think being a style blogger doesn’t work, then think again, because Brandy recently posted a picture on social media of her wearing an outfit from Old Navy that she had styled for her blog, and now she is in partnership with them!
I was totally shocked when they reached out to me and asked me if they could use my picture on their Instagram page! Working with Old Navy is a dream come true for me! Getting a chance to show off how I style their pieces is so much fun. It is a brand I love, and I shop there so much I feel like I live there!
Brandy feels Houston has influenced her style in many ways. One of those ways is by the diversity that Houston has, and she tries to bring all of those elements into her style.
What does Brandy see for her future?
My dream is to continue to grow my partnerships with the brands I love. Eventually, I’d like to blog full time, and I can see that happening in the next five years.
