Christina A.

Christina A: I came across Christina – and her blog – on Instagram on a random Saturday afternoon. Her style caught my interest and so I reached out and introduced myself. As you can see in the snaps below, her outfit is unique – much like her personality. She pairs different patterns and colors to create a look that is whimsical, but still practical. Having not seen a bow tie on PKP for quite some time, Christina brings an air of freshness to the series that I enjoyed capturing. Be sure to take a read at her blog as she talks about life, experiences, and fashion through seven different “scopes.”

“I tend to gravitate towards the traditional, but I also have a light-hearted, whimsical side. I think mixing prints and adding unexpected elements – like the bow tie – not only keep my conventional pieces looking fresh and modern, but also speak to the fun side of my personality. My favorite compliment is when someone says, “I love the way this looks on you, but I could never pull it off.” Positive thoughts people, you totally can! But for me it means I’ve done more than put together a good outfit, I’ve made it my own.”
