Blogger of the Month: Clear the Way


I recently interviewed the lovely Kate who writes the blog Clear the Way. Kate has been an avid reader of my blog for a while now and she was so much fun to interview! Be sure to visit and follow her lovely blog!

Clear the Way Kate Fashion

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging as a way to channel the time I spent online and make it more productive. I loved browsing shops and spent a lot of time doing it, but it only resulted in me making purchases I didn't need to make or simply wasting time. I'm so glad I started Clear the Way because it's grown into a real passion. Now the time I spend online is useful, productive, and helps me learn more about myself in order to share myself with others.

What styles/trends do you like at the moment?

I love a good shift dress which is very apparent on Clear the Way as I feature them quite often. The styles and trends that I gravitate toward are always the vintage or vintage-inspired ones. I love the 20s, 50s, 60s (mod, not hippie), and I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the puffy-sleeved and puffy-haired 80s.

What is your favourite piece in your wardrobe and why do you love it?

Right now I'm falling in love with my grey mary-janes all over again. I purchased them awhile ago but every time I add a new dress into my "favorites section" of my wardrobe, my trusty mary-janes rise to the calling, complete the look, and remind me why they are my favorite.

Who/what influences your personal style?

I take inspiration from many people and things, but a few of my long-standing human influences include Kate Bush, Twiggy, and Molly Ringwald.

Something no-one knows about you?

I don't know that I've ever shared this on my blog, but I have gauged(/stretched) ears. They are a size 0 and I usually wear wood, clear glass, or turquoise stone plugs. I think they are a little different but still tasteful and I can still hang a hook earring from them if I need to. I also have a second piercing so I can wear small studs. Also, as a bonus: I used to have white hair.


What do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time I love going on long hikes and bike rides. I love being outdoors, no matter what I'm doing, and California is really beautiful. I also enjoy reading about the things I'm most passionate about (like women's rights) or classic literature. I like practicing yoga and cooking delicious Vegan and gluten-free food as well.
