With Love, Philadelphia – By Eat.Sleep.Wear.

Guest Blogger: Kim | Eat.Sleep.Wear.

While I’m in Norway for the holidays I’ve asked a few select bloggers to host Pretty Shiny Sparkly until my return. Please give Kim a warm welcome with your comments! xoxo — Kristina

Hiiieee!! I am Kim from the blog eat.sleep.wear. and I’m coming to you from the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia. I was so excited when Kristina asked me to do a guest post for her because of course I LOVE her blog, her, and want her to have an amazing time relaxing and not worrying about the interwebz. I wanted to introduce myself with my most FAVORITE piece of the moment, this mustard yellow scarf I snatched up at Zara. It has barely left my neck. I tend to gravitate more to the neutral and and black colors in the winter, but I have vowed to myself this year that I MUST inject some color and life into the drab winter days. I love how easily this is done by throwing on a scarf and putting on some sassy lipstick and how that can instantly change a look. I have been on a super casual kick lately. I do love how the fancier shades and lipstick still keep this from looking too laid back. I would feel comfortable kicking back with some cocktails at one of my favorite watering holes for sure.

A little more about myself, I literally like long walks on the beach (I am totally serious), any flavor cupcake imaginable, bright lipstick, a killer top knot, modern minimal style, a real Dutchie, and a real believer in being positive.

Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I hope that Kristina loves them! Come stop by at my blog to peep my photos, or chat me up on twitter!! Enjoy new friends. xo, Kim
