Intelligent and poised, Kelly Peacock is living the Brooklyn dream. After moving to the big city, she quickly began pursuing her passion for writing, which she often shares with her growing social media following. And scrolling through her effortless (and often coffee filled) imagery feels like easy Sunday mornings and French elegance.

Her style dances within the realms of breezy minimalism, but don't be mistaken, there is nothing minimal about her talent and creativity. This writer is going places and we can't wait to see where! So keep reading for her thoughts on psych thrillers, fast fashion and writing poetry at coffee shops.

Hi Kelly! Please introduce your wonderful self! 

Hi! My name is Kelly Peacock and I'm a Brooklyn-based poet and writer, doing content marketing and writing for Thought Catalog. I also do some social media content for brands, like Mejuri (#finecrew hi!).

1. How would you describe your style?

Definitely comfy. Trendy, cute, casual. I like to wear "girly" pieces like dresses and cute ruffled off-the-shoulder tops with little sandals just as much as I like to wear an oversized tee and biker shorts and Air Forces.

2. Where are your favorite places to shop and why?

I'm trying to shop more sustainably and less fast fashion. It's hard but it's making me a lot more conscious about things. Thankfully, I live in New York and there are thrift stores everywhere, but I can't rely on them for jeans that fit my body type, so for that, I typically go to Zara or Madewell.

3. How did you discover your personal style or are you still discovering it?

I don't know if there was a point when I discovered my style, I think it just came naturally and through influence from my friends and social media. There are things I like to wear that I know fit my body type and what feels like me. Whether if I'm wearing sweatpants and a crop top or a flowy dress, my style is really just whatever I feel comfortable in and most like myself.

4. Do you have any current favorite? (podcasts, books, songs, etc?)

SO MANY FAVORITES. I'm an avid reader and read a lot of psych thrillers, but my favorite books would have to be Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert and Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman--the writing in both of these are just..*chefs kiss*.

I'm also obsessed with music, specifically Harry Styles, The 1975, LANY, The National, Gregory Alan Isakov, J Cole, The Band CAMINO, Phoebe Bridgers. Let me just send my Spotify, haha. I've been trying to get into podcasts more, but I can't seem to stray away from Dateline, Crime Junkie, Killer Queens, Call Her Daddy, Up Schitt's Creek, and The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Ears Edition.

5. Aside from style, what other hobbies or interests do you have?

I love to read. I love to watch Netflix or Hulu. I also love thrifting, writing poetry at a coffee shop, hanging out with friends at the park, wandering around the streets of Soho, and people-watching (these hobbies were all before quarantine).

6. And the bonus question I like to ask everyone before they go: what's something you're really proud of right now?

I graduated from college in May 2018 with a Creative Writing degree, and in November 2018, I moved to New York City and got myself a job as a writer. I still can't believe it--some days I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.

Where else can we find you, Kelly?

I spend a lot of time on Instagram (@kellyapeacock) and Twitter (@kellyapeacock), so you can find me there! I'm trying to post more of my poetry on my Instagram.

If you want to take a peek at what I do for work, feel free to read through things at Thought Catalog, thoughtcatalog.com/kelly-peacock, or on my website, kellypeacock.net.
