Q&A: Lauren from Sophisticated in Style + Giveaway!

Today I'd like to introduce you to Lauren from Sophisticated in Style. I adore Lauren's girly and chic looks! Get to know her better with this Q&A, plus she's got an awesome giveaway!



1. Describe your style!


Sophisticated, girly, and classic but with a twist. Although I am not one to religiously follow trends or allow it to dictate what I wear, the trends inevitably do trickle down into stores. When I purchase I also try to have the intent in my mind: "is this really my style? will I wear it often?" It {mostly} helps to avoid impulse purchases.

2. What are you top 5 can't-live-without items in your closet? 

My leopard print wedges, Michael Kors watch, trench coat, red lipstick, and beige a-line dress.

3. What is your favorite part about blogging? 
First and foremost, my favorite aspect of blogging is the relationships it creates. I have made many friends through blogging, who come from all parts of the world. I feel so lucky to have made those connections, and love how everyone in the blogosphere is so supportive. On a more personal level, it has really allowed me to define my style. When I first started blogging I realized I would wear things that I thought were on trend at the time, or that other bloggers were doing. Then I stopped because I realized it just wasn't me. Like pattern mixing. Some people just rock the look, but it's just not me. I really love that my style has evolved in these past 9 months, and for the better.

4. What are your favorite stores to shop at?
If you're an avid reader of my blog, you'll notice a lot of my clothing is from H&M. I've always had a great experience with them in terms of quality and price, and being a petite woman the trousers fit me the best out of every store I've tried (and believe me, I've tried a lot). In the hopes of not sounding like a hardcore H&M fan, I've also lately been liking to shop online at stores such as asos.com and shopruche.com. Oh and did I mention H&M? I definitely think I need to start expanding my horizons .. For shoes, Just Fab and Aldo.


5. Which fall trend is your favorite? Which one will you be staying away from?
Autumn is my favorite season, not only for the cozy sweaters and fall fashions, but also because of the atmosphere and goodies it provides (such as hot apple cider and pumpkin pie). When I shop I am really not dictated by trends, but my favorite fall trend would have to be burgundy and leopard print - as well as the mid-century lady look. But lets get real, every season I am busting out the leopard print - it's a staple. You definitely won't see me wearing the sneaker wedges. It's just not my style.

6. My best accessory is __________.

Happiness/confidence.


7. What's your go-to outfit? (aka what you put on when you can't think of what to wear)?
Dresses! They are so easy to pop on and accessorize and go! Also, when I get a new article of clothing, I usually find one way to style it that I just love, so that sometimes also constitutes my go-to outfit. But of course, that always changes.
