Katie, who is affectionately known as Amelia Jetson by her friends, shares a passion for blogging alongside best friend and style ambassador Amanda. Katie and Amanda are the quirky blogging duo behind Junebugs and Georgia Peaches. When asked why she applied to become a style ambassador Katie replied “I’ve worn glasses since I was 2 and it’s great that I can finally incorporate glasses into my wardrobe for style and functionality!” We absolutely love Katie’s quirky southern style and how she can effortlessly incorporate both retro and modern elements within each and every one of her looks.

I would describe my personal style as 1950s librarian who is secretly a rock star.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They let me see!
My glasses collection consists of _ pairs of frames: 4
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: I rarely keep up with fashion trends, but I’d say the reemergence of Bardot Tops is amazing!
I chose this pair of glasses because: The cat eyes fit my personal style, and the tortoise color is great for when black is too harsh.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Oh my gosh, so many options. I would have to go with JK Rowling, because she’s so talented and I want to know more about Hogwarts.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Soy Iced Green Tea Latte.
The best way to organize a closet is: By type of clothing, and then by color.
My current style muse is: I always look to people from the past more than current people. I’m always inspired by ladies like Lucille Ball, Brigette Bardot and Jayne Mansfield.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is to always consider your face shape.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: PinUp Girl Clothing.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Instagram. I’m constantly refreshing and looking for new people to follow.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? I say ‘yay’! When I find a piece I really like I have NO shame in buying it in multiple colors.
Favorite city to go shopping is: Nashville because I get to see Amanda, my bff – and there are some amazing vintage stores.
