My personal style is enormously black-and-white, literally and figuratively. Typically I gravitate toward simple, chic elements - readers of my blog have said I have a very Parisian style, funnily enough - but lately I've been trying to be a bit more adventurous with colors and, as you can see here, with patterns. I love bold, structured fashion that speaks with its shape and I love emphasizing looks with accessories. I'm always inspired by other bloggers, especially Vahni of Grit and Glamour, Kristy Elena of Full Time Fabulous and Vogue Gone Rogue, Barbro Andersen, Kirstin of Crimson Rosella and Jen of Her Waise Choice.
Cream-tastic (aka Creamsicle)
2 oz. Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
2 oz. orange juice
Shake over ice and drain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a cherry
Since I'm not much of a whiz in the kitch I thought I'd spin this part with a liquid lunch. Sometimes you just need one of those, you know? My sister introduced me to Pinnacle Vodka, which comes in a few really different flavors. The only one I've tried so far is Whipped, which of course takes on a whipped cream taste. With each flavor there are dozens of drink recipes on Pinnacle's website that unlock endless possibilities. You can combine it with buttercream schnapps. coffee or chocolate or banana liquor, etc. The Cream-tastic is my favorite - which we've dubbed the Creamsicle because that's exactly what it tastes like - and if you add a splash of half-and-half it's even better!
When it comes to home décor I'm a little less predictable than I tend to be with fashion. I've gone from Tuscan-themed to old-Hollywood-inspired to Shabby Chic and beyond. I think you can find out a lot about yourself by looking at your space and your fashion sense and considering how the two differ. Lately I've taken a cue from my wardrobe and embraced minimalism in my interior design, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I get inspired by something else and change everything up completely.
How would you express the three L's of your style? Thanks again to Stephanie for inviting me to contribute this little guest post!
