Kristin's Going to Change the Title Anyway So It Doesn't Really Matter What I Make It

Like I mentioned yesterday, I've asked for some help with blogging this week.  Today I have a post by my younger sister Bridget (& yes that's what she titled this in her email to me!).  If you've seen any of my posts with my sister in them then you know her & I are really close, so needless to say I am so excited to have her here today.  Bridget has a great sense of style, & she is going to share some of it with all of you!  Without anymore of my babbling here she is:

Hello! My name is Bridget Thompson, I am Kristin's little sister. She has been asking me to write a blog post for a while so I figured why not? I'm not into baking & crafting like Kristin is, (I just reap the benefits!) but I do like fashion. Today I'm going to talk about how I love dark colors (my favorite color is black, I know it's a little bizarre!). However, before I jump into that, I have a little Q&A so you can get to know me!

Where do you go to school?
Rosemont College, which is conveniently less then five minutes away from Villanova!

What is your guilty pleasure?
Spending way too much time on Tumblr & watching way too much Netflix!

What is your favorite dessert?
Hmm...this is a tough one because I love sweets! I really love chocolate cake with whipped cream icing!!

Coffee or tea?
Both!!! I love both equally & can't go a day without either a cup of coffee or tea!

Sun or Snow?
Hands down sun!!!! I am obsessed with the beach, swimming, riding my bike, and all the fun things that only come in the sun!

So now that you know me a little better, let's get down to business. My style differs from Kristin's a bit, I'm a more edgy, & (as I said) dark colors are my favorite fashion colors. I love blacks, greys, dark purples, maroons, dark greens, & more, the darker the better. I love bright colors on other people, but to be totally honest they just aren't for me. I even go as far as only painting my nails dark colors (I'm sometimes a little more adventurous with with a pedicure!)! Since I love everything dark when it comes to fashion, I decided to share some style picks in that palette.

Dress: Topshop  /  Coat: my  /  Nail Lacquer: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark  /  Boots: Steve Madden  
Heels: Rihanna for River Island  /  Sweater: IHeart  /  Leggings: Mimi Chica

These are all things that I will be spotted wearing this winter.  Lincoln Park After Dark is my favorite nail polish out there!  I hope that this will inspire everyone to wear some more dark pieces!

A big thanks to Bridget for doing this great post!  I love all of her picks & will have to take a walk on the dark side soon.  I'm glad that you were also able to 'meet' my sister this week.  I really appreciate these guest posts & hope you guys are enjoying them!  I'll be back tomorrow with a quickie Five on Friday.

  2. Great style! I may be running to my local Nordstroms for those leather leggings - I have been looking everywhere for a good pair.


  3. Black is my favorite color too! It looks so classic and goes with everything! I've been getting into light colors lately but my go-to outfit is usually centered around something black.

  4. I love black too, it is so simple and chic!

    Love this idea of having your sister on the blog. I have two sisters and we are all best friends, I should have them as guests sometime.
