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 Andrea of Blonde Bedhead a warm welcome with your comments! xoxo — Kristina
Three words I’d like to be more like: Pretty. Shiny. Sparkly. I’m naturally a cynical realist with a tendency to favor the color black and curse a lot. Yet, there are times my heart of coal melts when I see cute animals, my grandma surprises me with a cheesecake or when I get a thoughtful email from a reader.
When I think of Pretty Shiny Sparkly, I of course think of the gorgeous Kristina, but secondary, I think of a combination of confidence, taking risks and not being afraid of embracing a girlier side.
I’ve recently taken an interest in leopard print (and embraced my inner girly girl.) And this print seamlessly fits into my mostly neutral wardrobe. I paired my leopard print coat with this striped dress with faux leather leggings with an ankle zip detail and lace up boots for some edge.. I like a cinched in coat, so I removed a sash from one of my dresses and tied it around the waist. It’s so cold in Michigan, it’s become an absolute necessity to add a scarf (even if it covers up the cute details of the coat) and gloves. I wanted to feel a bit fancy with this particular look, perhaps a bit Pretty Shiny Sparkly, so I added leather gloves and some pink lipstick.
