Every week we bring you a featured blogger or talent who inspires us. This week we’re so excited to share with you a dynamic duo that met when they were only 11 years old, Emily and Abigail of Wanderlust Girls! Bonding over their love of fashion, adventure, and a dry sense of humor Wanderlust Girls was started when the two went to college on the opposite ends of the East Coast as a more fashionable way to keep in touch. And we’re glad they did! Learn more about Emily & Abigail here.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
Abigail and I met way back in middle school and bonded over a love of fashion and a super dry sense of humor (think Dumb & Dumber.) We used to get dressed up all the time and make a spectacle in our small town. When we separated for college we were in agony… missing your best friend and half your wardrobe, it was awful! So, we started a blog our senior year of college to show each other what we would soon share when we reunited. Six years later, we do the blog full time and still share our wardrobe.
