Girl Talk // The Soft Spoken

Today we get to have a chat with the lovely Meredith of One Sheepish Girl. Meredith is just the sweetest gal and oh so terribly talented! I absolutely adore her work and I think you will all really enjoy reading more about her!

What is your job title?
At the moment I am a college senior, knitter, and blogger!

What do you love about yourself?
If you asked me this question a few years ago, I would have had no response. I went through a time in my life where I loved nothing about myself. I dealt with insecurities and doubts in a big way. Thankfully, I discovered knitting, blogging, and slowly developed a “voice” and sense of self. I still struggle with my insecurities, but I definitely feel better about myself today. I love that I love different things than people my age. I like Jane Austen, drinking tea, and curling up with a good book or movie more than anything.

Who is your role model?
My role model is definitely my mom. Without a doubt she is the person I look up to the most. She has supported my creativity ever since I could roll a glob of Play-Doh into a worm. I am so appreciative of her wisdom and kind spirit. I just love her so much!

What inspires you?
I am inspired by bright colors mixed with classic styles. I really love sweaters and cardigans, a pretty basic fashion staple, but I tend to navigate toward fun patterns and colors making them more unique. A skirt with a basic shape covered in pink triangles is something that would definitely catch my eye! I guess I’m a little bit like what inspires me. I’m classic, dare I say “granny”, because I love Frank Sinatra and knitting at home, but I’m also a bit colorful in the ways I dress and live my life.

What are five words that describe you?
Reserved, Kind, Bibliophile, Determined, and Sheepish ;-)

What is your biggest insecurity?
Unfortunately, my biggest insecurity is worrying about what other people think. I worry about what others think of my clothes, knitting, blog posts…pretty much everything. Sometimes it becomes extremely consuming. Eventually I realize that living my life based on other people’s opinions is a complete waste of time, but I still have moments of weakness that I need to work through.

If you could be anyone for a day, who would it be?
Do fictional people count? I would love to be Mrs. Darcy aka Elizabeth Bennett for a day. Married to Mr. Darcy…yeah…I could handle that. ;-)
