What It Means to Be PSS – By Blonde Bedhead

andrea kerbuski of Blonde BedheadGuest Blogger: Andrea Kerbuski | Blonde Bedhead

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.

    This is an amazing outfit, and one I'll have to replicate – seeing as I own the *exact same* leopard coat from H&M!!!
    Oh, and I want your hair. Wanna trade?

    Are there any online sites that sell H&M? Their closest store to me is 2 hours away… and I love this jacket!

      At least you have one that close to you!! But I hear ya on the lack of H&M
      stuff….unfortunately there are no ways to buy H&M online…except maybe

      eBay?

      I bought mine on my trip to L.A. back in September.

        LOL – I just looked at the H&M locator map and totally laughed when I saw how far away the closest store is to you… guess I shouldn't be complaining! 🙂

    Completely agree! I have a tendency to lean towards more boyish cuts and pants are my safe place. Im learning that it doesn't hurt to push to girly envelope every once in a while, as long as we keep in mind our own style elements in the process. Great post! Love the pink lipstick thrown in there.

    This is an awesome look! Loving the leopard on you. You've really embraced a beautiful side of you and I'm obsessed with your hair. Geezus girl, work it!
