may blogger: yesterday's sweetheart


I first discovered Emily's darling blog on the Modcloth website in a Fave Finds segment she was featured in. I instantly fell in love with her girlie style and her colourful photos. Yesterday's Sweetheart is a fresh, beautiful blog that I am sure you will all love as much as I do!

What’s the story behind the name of your blog?
The name of my blog actually comes from the name of a song from the band Sheer Terror. I listened to the band a lot at the time and that title just stuck with me! Like my blog name, most of my post titles also come from names of songs. I'm definitely a music junkie!

What inspires your style? (Any particular era, style icon, vintage etc?) 
 Honestly I don't really have a particular person, era, etc that inspires me. I've been really into pinning lately over on Pinterest and I'm always finding inspiring outfits! For the most part, I just look around the internet and local stores and find items I love. 



What shops can you always rely on to find gorgeous clothes?
As you probably notice I do most of my shopping either at ASOS.com or Forever 21. ASOS never lets me down and my wishlist is always a mile long! Forever 21 is a great fast-fashion resource for affordable and cute clothing. Lately I'm also loving on eBay for some vintage dresses I'm swooning over! 
Vintage or new?
I would have to say new... As much as I love vintage clothing, I have a hard time finding my size!  
In your spare time, you would most likely be found...
Shopping downtown or at the mall, antiquing at a couple of my favorite shops (although I'm trying to stay away so I can save some money!), or enjoying the day with my boyfriend.  



What blogs do you read for inspiration?
Oh my! So many I could name but I'll stick with a few. Fashion: Kendi Everyday Beauty: That Is All DIY: Carly Kmyta Photography & Design: Hello Vanny

Your photos are so beautiful! Do you have any tips on capturing the perfect shot?
Thank you so much! I am such an amateur when it comes to photography! I've found that having the perfect lighting (outside) is key to a great photo. What works for me is testing out lighting, positions, angles, etc and taking lots of shots so you have a lot to choose from! Don't forever detailed shots as well!
