Kerr kept it Cali-cool at the Bourbon and Boweties and Moon & Lola party at The Merchant at Howell Mill in palm-print pieces and killer Charlotte Olympia wedges.
Fashion blogger extraordinaire, radio show host and TV personality Courtney Kerr is all about going big. She’s a Texas gal, after all. After rising to fame on Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas and scoring her own spinoff, Courtney Loves Dallas, Kerr has made a name for herself as a fashion force to be reckoned with. The 33-year-old stunner has the best-selling necklace (The Courtney Bib) in BaubleBar’s history; serves as a brand ambassador for Macy’s; and is currently rebranding her blog (What Courtney Wore), which boasts roughly half a million followers across her social media channels. We caught up with Kerr after her recent visit to Atlanta to host a Bourbon and Boweties and Moon & Lola party at The Merchant at Howell Mill to talk fashion, love and more. @thecourtneykerr
How was your trip to the A?
It was fabulous! It was nice to meet all the girls who have followed my blog and support me. It was fun to see the style they have in Atlanta. The night we arrived, we went to Bartaco. We ended up ordering three bowls of guacamole and had the best tacos I have ever had.
Tell us about your new site!
It’s been What Courtney Wore for four years now, and I’m 33 and working on how I can create a brand that is sustainable. It will be called KERRently by Courtney Kerr. I’m excited.
What’s the biggest misconception about life as a blogger?
That money grows on trees and all we do is shop for a living! You have to carve out what your niche is and have a strong point of view.
On Bravo, you were very open about your love life. Current status?
I am very happy and in love. I met my boyfriend in a very strange situation. He came on the morning show that I used to host in Dallas, and I interviewed him. He didn’t ask me out until eight months later, and I kept thinking: I’m flirting my ass off! Why isn’t he asking me out? But everything happens in due time.
Will we see you back on the small screen?
Never say never! I am grateful to Bravo for seeing something in me that they wanted to share and helping me to build the platform that I have now.
