style crush - {running on happiness}.

meet katie from running on happiness::

i admire katie's sense of style and happy attitude so she was an obvious choice for my april blogger style crush :: she takes time to be thankful, she likes donuts, and she shares great tips with other bloggers... not to mention all the fantastic beauty and fashion stuff :)

Get the Look: Shirt: Jcrew $98, Jeans: Gap $69.50, Shoes: "Zander" LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's $45, Purse $48, Necklace $18 


now for a little Q&A time :)
what trends do you love right now:: I am really loving chambray tops. They look great with anything; even denim (as long as there is a contrast. I don't think I'll ever get into that monochromatic denim on denim look. What is that called anyways, a cowboy tuxedo?). Other spring trends I am loving are platform sandals with the wooden soles, lace, bright colors and floral prints!
 
who is your favorite designer:: Tough question! There are so many fantastic ones to chose from! But if I had to pick one, it would be Rachel Roy. I love the bold use of color and prints in her designs. They are always playful yet sophisticated.

where do you like to shop::I like to shop at the Impulse section at Macys, H&M, Muse Apparel, BCBG, Target, Old Navy, FreePeople and Francesca's Collection.

what is favorite piece of clothing or accessory:: I'd have to say my JBrand "Kiki" high-waisted wide leg jeans are my favorite piece of clothing right now. They are just so chic and I feel like I am channeling my inner hippie when I wear them.

what do you feel most comfortable wearing:: I feel most comfortable in jeans or jean shorts, a well fitted crisp white tee, and a cute pair of flats or sandals. My style is pretty low key.

what is on your shopping wishlist:: Rag and Bone flared jeans. A Michelle or Michael Kors watch, and a brightly colored Tory Burch or Marc Jacobs leather bag for spring/summer.

who is the most stylish person in hollywood (past or present):: Currently I love the style of Rachel Bilson, Olivia Wilde and Olivia Palmero.

what do you like most about blogging?:: Blogging has been one of the best things I could have done for myself. It has opened up a world of opportunity that I never knew could have existed. It has allowed me to meet so many interesting, inspiring and amazing people! Working as a paralegal, I often feel very stifled. That void has been filled through my blog because it allows me to be as creative as I want to be, and I am always thinking, "What's next." Having a blog is an extension of yourself and you want it to represent you as truthfully as possible. Since my blog is titled, "Running on Happiness" I have literally become that.The focus in my life more now than ever, has been all about being happy. I just can't say enough positive things about blogging. Besides, I get to be one of Jillian's blogger crushes for a moment in time! Not too shabby!


a huge thank you to katie for participating! i hope all of you hop over to running on happiness for a daily dose of fashion inspiration :)

xoxo, 
jillian
