Pink Profile: Carly of The College Prepster

I’m very excited for today’s Pink Profile because I had the pleasure of asking Carly of The College Prepster some questions. She was the first blogger that I started to follow. I love her sense of style, but more importantly, I really admire her work ethic.


A big “thank you” to Carly for allowing me to interview her!



1. How did the idea for The College Prepster come about? My first semester at Georgetown didn’t exactly go as planned. I was really struggling with a few classes and wasn’t enjoying school. While studying for final exams, a friend suggested that I start a blog when I mentioned I needed a creative outlet. The rest is history!

2. What’s the best part of blogging? The community! It’s so amazing how many people I’ve been able to meet, both in person and online. Many of my friends have stemmed from some sort of blogging relationship.

3. How would you describe your sense of style? Comfortable and classic.

4. What’s one fashion trend you can’t get on board with? Wedge sneakers

5. You’ve gotten to work with many awesome people and brands. What was one of your favorite collaborations or projects you got to do through your blog? Working with Teen Vogue has been incredible. Everyone that I have worked with through them (from editors to makeup artists) have been the best. Plus, they’re just so much fun! It never feels like work!

6. What is your favorite kind of post to write, and why? I really love my On My Radar posts that I send out every Friday. It’s fun to be able to share some of the interesting things I’ve read that week!

7. Who or where do you get your inspiration from? I kind of get my inspiration from everything!

8. Where do you see yourself in five years? No idea! I never would have guessed where I am now five years ago, so it’s hard to think about where I might be in another five years.

9. What is one blog-related goal that you would like to accomplish this year? I really wanted to hit 100k Instagram followers by the end of the year… and I’m already really close! Very excited about that.

10. What advice do you have for new bloggers? Blog because you love to blog and don’t expect anything in return. That way, you’ll ALWAYS find success in blogging, no matter what!
