A-Z Series: V is For

Meet McKenzie from Spoonful of Style: the reason I started blogging in the first place.  McKenzie and I grew up in the same town and went to high school together and have since reconnected thanks to blogging land.  She recently moved back to the good 'ole Midwest and is continuing to inspire no matter where her location.  Her style is simply impeccable.

Hi! I'm McKenzie from Spoonful of Style and I'm thrilled to be here today sharing a few of my favorite things on Carly's blog. I thought I was in for a vicious challenge with the 22nd letter of the alphabet. But as it turns out, I'm swooning over more than just a few things that start with the letter "V." Check 'em out:
Vases to give fresh flowers a pretty home . . . Red velvet cake as a super sweet {and delicious!} indulgence . . . Vintage everything, obviously {earrings, clutches & photos} . . . Valentine's Day because we could all use a little more love . . . Valentino. Enough said . . . And shades of violet to cheerfully carry us into Spring . . .

Thanks so much for having me, Carly! xoxo

I can't thank you enough for not only being a part of the series, McKenzie, but for inspiring me to start a blog in the first place.  Not to mention, thank you for answering all of my ridiculous questions!

I wholeheartedly agree with all of these V picks.  My three additions would have to be:

1. VitaRain from Costco. Yes, I'm very serious about this.

2. Vera Wang wedding dresses

3. Anything VINCE, but most importantly this dress:



Isn't she a beauty?
