Discover what inspires her content, and her favorite rainy day activities...
 
Your social channels and blog do a great job of showcasing your personal style. Tell us about your foray into blogging and how you’ve chronicled your style evolution along the way.
I started blogging in January of 2015 as a creative outlet and escape from my day job. I had a lackluster entry-level position at a corporate retail company, and needed something outside of work that I could be passionate about. What started as a side gig grew into something much more. My style has definitely changed over the past 3 years, and it continues to change now. I think the biggest difference is that I’ve started to really live by the less is more motto. I like to invest in brands that I know I’ll have forever (like Barbour!), instead of buying a hundred things from a fast fashion retailer.
 
Congrats on your recent engagement! How will your personal life shape the content you create in the future?
Thank you! We are so excited to start this new chapter in our lives. As we plan our wedding, I’ll be sharing all the details of the process and what we’ve learned along the way. While fashion will always be the roots of Mollie Moore, I’ve found that I really enjoy creating other content and I look forward to sharing more travel, home, and lifestyle posts. With so much changing in my personal life, it makes sense for my blog to evolve and grow too.

Tell us about your first – or most favorite - Barbour experience.
My first Barbour and my favorite Barbour happen to be the same! Connor got me the Beadnell jacket in Sage for Christmas a few years ago (yep - he’s a keeper). As if that wasn’t enough, he even went one step further and had my initials embroidered on the sleeve. It will always be my favorite Barbour in my collection.
 
What’s your favorite piece from the Weather Comfort collection? Why?
 I really love all of them, but if I had to pick one I would say the yellow Barometer Jacket. I love the color for spring and summer, plus the weight is a great addition to my wardrobe. It’s super light and will be perfect for those warm summer rains.
 
What could we find in the pocket of your Barbour jacket?
This is such a great question! Most commonly I would say chapstick, headphones, loose change, and my phone, but every once in a while, I’ll pull out an old metro card or a movie stub from 6 months ago - one of my favorite features of Barbour jackets is how roomy the pockets are.

What are your favorite rainy day activities?
When it’s raining, Connor and I love to stay cozy indoors. We’ll usually order takeout and pick out a movie on Netflix. Those are honestly some of my favorite days.
 
What are some of your must-visit spots in NYC?
There are so many things to do in NYC, but if I had to narrow it down for a newbie I would say Top of the Rock, Central Park (Gapstow Bridge is my favorite spot for photos - the views of the Plaza are incredible!), the Brooklyn Bridge, Levain Bakery (the chocolate chip cookies will change your life), Joe’s Pizza on Carmine Street, and Tompkins Square Bagels. These are all NYC classics!
 
Where are your favorite places to travel in the spring?
Definitely Paris. We went last year in early April and it was absolutely beautiful - the weather was amazing and the city was sprinkled with cherry blossoms. It was so magical.

Tell us something people don’t know about you!
I have a serious addiction to Haribo Sour Gold Bears gummies. We always have a bag or two in our Apartment.
