Getting the Q&A Treatment: Taylor Abbott From the Gray Aesthetic

We all love learning mundane things about the people who fascinate us, right? So in an effort to tap into our shameless voyeuristic tendencies, we started a Q&A series with the people of Instagram who tug at our heartstrings.

This week, we have a treat for all of the minimalists out there, as we gave babe Taylor Abbott from @tayloroctober and Grey Aesthetic all of the tough DH questions to answer.

Spoiler alert: she's as charming as her Instagram account suggests.


Happy 🐰

You guys, gray-colored glasses are so much better than rose-colored ones. And when you're Taylor Abbott, that's how the world appears, which you can actually experience by scrolling through her incredibly lovely Instagram gallery. Indeed, she blesses the 'gram every day with her perfect eye-catching-yet-minimal photos that seem to depict an existence completely devoid of clutter (the dream!).

Her blend of inspiring lifestyle, her pretty face, fashion and nature shots serve as the perfect account to follow if you're craving escapism; her photos will take you on a journey and make you dream. Initially you may become inclined to envy, but her exceptionally sweet personality will simply not allow it.

Be forewarned: you might fall in love.

Hope you're all having a wonderful day.

Name yourself and your claim to fame:
I definitely don't consider myself famous, but I am recognized on social media for my minimalistic lifestyle I suppose.

1. Where’s your home base and why do you love it?
I am based in Portland, Oregon. I absolutely love it here! Everything from the wonderful and creative people, to the great food, to the gorgeous scenery makes Portland a really fun and exciting place to live.

2. Where can we find you on a Friday night?
I could definitely come up with something for this answer to make myself seem more interesting, but I know my friends and family would look at this and be like, "Liar!" On a Friday night you will most likely find me snuggled in my bed at home with a good book, or my laptop with a cup of chamomile tea.

Craving warmer days.

3. Three things you can’t live without?
Green tea in the mornings, city noise and Thai food.

4. What’s on your travel bucket list?
I really want to go to the South of France and Greece. European travel plans are next for my husband and I!

5. What’s your biggest vice?
It's illegal, so... Just kidding. But really, I can't tell you.

6. Coffee or tea?
I like coffee, but I love tea.

7. Sweet or savory?
Sweet.

8. What’s your guilty pleasure?
Dessert. (of any kind, tbh)

9. First celebrity crush?
Zac Efron in High School Musical, that's embarrassing. My celebrity crush now is Rooney Mara. She's hot.

10. Who’s your style icon?
I don't really have one in particular, but I'm always drawn to women who have rad street style like Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne.

Sunday. ❤️
