If you had to define your style in one word, what would it be? Edgy? Classy? Feminine? Tricky, isn’t it? For me, it most definitely is. I can’t give you just one word to define my style. In the summer, it’s an array of floral prints, multiple shades of lace, all tied into a feminine look. However, during the fall and winter, I definitely add an edgy vibe to my look. This winter, I’ll finally admit it. I own more black in my closet than I ever thought possible. I’ve caved.

Hop a flight and take off to Paris…check! Bring photographer/Instagram husband…double check. Now, what to pack? Dresses, leggings, outerwear, a zillion pairs of shoes…perfect! Now will my hair products and styling tools even fit into my suitcase? I usually pack my flatiron, sprays, and other hair styling products for any occasion. Ok, sit on suitcase, smash suitcase, step on suitcase, say a quick prayer, and it closed! Hallelujah! My hair products and styling tools made the cut! They were on their way to a fancy trip to Paris.

When Grant and I met, we dated long distance for several years. He lived in Kentucky, and I was here in NYC. I would visit his hometown in Kentucky on the weekends. One day, as he drove me around, I noticed a sign that said Versailles. “Hey, you brought me to France,” I teased. Little did I realize, that there’s a Versailles in Kentucky too. I was caught in a daydream, as we drove. Wouldn’t it be oh-so-lovely to visit Versailles in France together one day? It would be quite the dream.
