Meet a Friend Monday - My Sister!!

I have a special treat for you today! You get to meet my favorite sister ever, Grace. Okay, she's my only sister, but still! Even if she weren't, she'd still be my favorite. =) She's my little sister, my confidante, my best friend . . . and I love her to pieces. 

Sweater, skirt & tights: Target
Tank & belt: Maurices
Boots: Shoe Carnival
Bracelets: Charlotte Russe

Me:What are your favorite stores to shop at?
Grace: Oh geez.. it's a little embarrassing how limited my selection of stores is. Target, Maurice's, NY& Company. I need to branch out a little, huh?  I'm not all about the designer label. I mean, I do love me some J. Crew and Anthroplogie, however my checkbook does not. ;) And why spend the big bucks when you can get pretty much the same look for cheaper, right?

Me: How would you define your style?
Grace: Hhmm... I honestly don't know if I have a "style". I like a little bit of everything and my closet can prove that, I think. It's a little all over the place. But, one thing I would wear all the time if I could would be maxi dresses. Love them! So cute and comfy and versatile. Anything long and flowy... maybe I'm a hippy at heart;)


Me: What is the one thing you have to wear every day or you simply don't feel put together?
Grace: Underwear. Hehee.. just kidding! Seriously, though, probably some sort of accessory... I'm no expert, but I think even a simple chain necklace or pair of earrings can really pull an outfit together. If I'm in a hurry and rushing out the door in the morning, I almost always try to grab something...bangle bracelet, necklace, big ole funky ring...
Me: Be honest now, do you really care that your sister (ummm... that's me) raids your closet all the time? ;)
Grace: Well, now that you mention it... Ha! No, not really. It's fun to see some of my stuff pop up on the blog. Means I have a little bit of good taste, right? And it helps me see different ways to wear my clothes since I'm boring and simple most of the time. :)

Me: You're getting married!! How excited are you? Share with us a little bit of your vision for your wedding.
Grace: Soooo excited! :) March 29th can NOT come fast enough. So, the wedding: we're wanting something simple and intimate...with a vintage feel to it. I'm hitting up the flea markets and thrift stores next week for some old vases for the centerpieces. The colors I'm going with are a deep purple, emerald green, and blue (think peacock feather).  The ceremony is going to be outside in the most perfect courtyard... at sunset. Can't get any more perfect than that. ;)

Me: But then you're moving away to Ohio. Super, super sad face. How will you survive being so far away from your favorite sister? And your sweet niece and nephew, of course.
Grace: Oh, I'll probably cry myself to sleep every night after eating an entire bag of Dove chocolates... ;) We'll just skype every day/all day!!!

Me: Are you going to start your very own blog to help cope with the lonely evenings when your husband (that sounds weird!) is out flying? (He's a pilot, for you readers who are wondering...) Are you, are you???
Grace: You just don't give up, do you? :) Maybe... you'll just have to wait and found out;)
 So, that's my sister, folks. Isn't she adorable?!?

Oh!! I guest posted over at Snow in December on Friday! Y'all go check it out right here! =)

Aww! Love it! She's super cute with a great sense of style. I could take a lesson from her about the accessories. They just don't come natural to me! Oh and yes, congratulations on the wedding! I like the sounds of a vintage theme.

Your sister is just like you, pretty and oh so stylish. I also have sisters but they are much older, the one next to me is 9 years older and the gap is bigger from there so I always felt like an only child. Thanks for sharing this interview with us and hope you had a great holiday!
