Inspired by a great idea from Natalie of Natalie’s Lovely Blog (follow her, won’t you?) and her friend McKenna Ryan , my pal and fellow blogger Toia B. of Luv To B Natural (check her out!) and I decided to interview each other on current fashion loves and likes and can’t-live-withouts. Natalie and McKenna’s fun idea consisted of finding a blogging friend and exchanging the Quaint Questionnaire with them. Feel free to do the same, and be sure to tag Natalie and McKenna if you do!
Below are Toia’s awesome answers; head over to her blog to see my answers to the same questions.
Describe your perfect winter outfit.
Let’s see… a dark rinsed pair of jeans, cognac riding boots, a chambray button-down and a v-neck sweater. Layering for warmth with coordination for flyness!
Infinity or rectangle scarves?
While I own a gaggle of rectangular scarves, I LOVE a nice infinity/circle scarf. They just make sense!
Color you can wear all year round?
Teal! As of last year, it’s my new favorite color. I found myself wearing it during the winter right into summer when I often paired it with coral. Lovely combo!
What is your take on the Fall 2013 knee-high sock comeback?
I actually love it! I may be turning 34 next month but hey, I like what I like… and I like that look. Ya know, when you wear it with some boots and have a bit of it peeking out over the top? Yeah, so cute!
What is an accessory you can’t leave the house without?
Earrings. Even if I’m just making a trip to the supermarket or running a quick errand to the post office, I’ve gotta put on some hoops or something. Just gotta! I keep a gold pair and a silver pair right where I can grab them on my way out.
How do you relax during those cold wintry nights?
Recently, I’ve been winding down with a Cosby Show mini-marathon, a PB&J sandwich, a large mug of hot chocolate and my fuzzy socks.
Where have you been finding your fashionspiration as of late?
Hmmm… that’s a toughy. I’d like to think that my style is really my own but I do enjoy the fashion sense of style bloggers like Cyn of Addicted to Etsy, Folake of Style Pantry, Eboni of The Fashionista Next Door and Ashlei of Kinks are the New Pink.
Song you can’t get out of your head?
Royals by Lorde. Sure, it’s been around for a minute but that beat… those hooks…I just can’t get enough!
What is a trend you hope never ever ever goes out of style?
Jeans paired with a blazer. It’s so basic and easy to execute that I don’t think we’d have to worry about that. Definitely my go-to.
Ankle booties or knee high boots?
There are only certain kinds of ankle booties that I actually like and I only own one pair (that I can remember) so I’m gonna go with knee-high boots. You can wear ’em with jeans, pair ’em with a skirt or maxi dress to transition from summer to winter… love the versatility.
Describe your idea of a perfect winter day.
Curling up under a blanket or my favorite sweatshirt with some hot chocolate and a good, funny movie!
Hot chocolate or chai tea latte?
Gaaaah! Ya got me! I love them both equally… is that acceptable?
What is a piece you wish you had in your closet right now?
The perfect black pencil skirt. I have yet to find one to fit just right!
Thanks, Toia! Love your responses; I’m also on a quest to find the perfect pencil skirt and can’t live without my earrings.
