I love looking at Pinterest to get ideas (who doesn’t?). I like how you can find inspiration for all different things from cooking, to home ideas, to party planning. For shopping inspiration, I tend to look at the outfits on the mannequins – call me unoriginal, but they usually look perfectly accessorized so I go with it! I love finding new recipes so lately I’ve been reading Everyday with Rachael Ray and I always check out FoodGawker. I might be obsessed with this site.
Q: What is your favorite piece of clothing that you own?
Right now, I think it’s my green silk shirt. It has three quarter length sleeves so it’s been very versatile: I’ve worn it recently up in Chicago and here in Tampa. It’s basic by itself, but very easy to pair jewelry and different shoes/boots with so I can change up the look.
My favorite color is navy, so this color is always on top of my faves list. Right now I also like aqua, green and gold. Maybe not so much gold in clothing, but sparkly gold accessories!
Q: How would you describe your style?
My style tends to be pretty preppy, I like the basics. I live in jeans and I like a collared shirt or simple tops that I can accessorize. I steer clear of heels (I love them but they kill me) and I seriously need to beef up my shoe collection! I’m thinking of this as a New Year’s goal.
Q: What is your favorite part of your day?
Dusk is my all-time favorite time of day. I love watching the sun set and the sky turning colors. Florida has the best sunsets. The lights always have a pretty glow and I just think it’s the most beautiful, most relaxing part of the day. I used to sit out on my balcony at the end of the day and watch the sunset with a glass of wine – it was perfect (man I wish we still lived there!).
Q: What are some of the songs in your “most played” list on your iPhone?
My music taste changes with my mood, but some of my favorite artists include Emerson Hart, Gavin DeGraw, Maroon 5, Anberlin, Imagine Dragons, Augustana, Citizen Cope, David Gray, Mat Kearney, Death Cab for Cutie, and Will Hoge. I saw Mat Kearney play at a Chicago festival a couple summers ago – he was amazing!
Q: What are your must-read blogs or sites?
I really like Cupcakes and Cashmere. I love her style and her blog includes a mix of fashion, food and random everyday happenings. My good friend Alyson is the blogger behind Unruly Things and I read her blog all the time to see her everyday posts, find yummy recipes and check out the different local companies she posts about.
I love checking out different parts of the Tampa area – I like walking around finding new and unique shops and restaurants to try. When I lived in Chicago, my husband and I would take the el to different areas of the city and just walk around for hours and see different things. We’d stop into random stores and try different bites and brews local restaurants. I love being outside if it’s nice out.
Thanks for sharing with us Amy! Sunsets and new shoes - it sounds like Amy is going to have a fantastic 2013!
