The Rules:
1. Post your award to your blog.
2. Answer the questions that you were given from the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate a few new bloggers youโ€™ve discovered.
4. Create 10 new questions for the nominees.
5. Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.

Answering the Questions from Kristinโ€ฆ

  1. How did you come up with your blog name?

I love neutrals and gray has always been a favorite color of mine. Gray is considered a transitional color which also represents this period of time in my life! I was trying unsuccessfully to come up with an adjective to pair it with until one night, I was thinking of words that described my overall style. โ€œClassicโ€ was the first thing that popped into my head and the rest is history!

  1. What is your go-to Starbucks drink?

Currently, a decaf, non-fat Toasted Graham Latte with soy milk. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t drinking one right now! The perks of living a one-minute walk from Starbucks ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Guilty pleasure(s):

Fro-yo (Iโ€™m obsessed), a little retail therapy, watching The Real Housewives of Orange County, a good cheeseburger and fries, and wandering around Homegoods!

  1. What does your perfect day look like:

Iโ€™ve learned to really appreciate every day and my definition of perfect has changed recently! Iโ€™d say a sunny, warm day where I feel really great and spend time doing something outside with my hubby, family, and pup. Maybe exploring one of D.C.โ€™s many historical places! Having a dinner at Tao in NYC wouldnโ€™t hurt either ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Describe your style in 3 words:

Classic (surprising!), feminine, and comfortable (a must)

  1. Favorite quote:

There are a lot of inspirational quotes that I read and have gotten me through some tough times but I really love this one by Regina Brett! โ€œNo matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up.โ€

  1. How do you stay organized?

Iโ€™d love to say a planner because I have tried so many times to use one and I always wind up falling off the wagon. I will continue to try though! Iโ€™m very type A so I have lists everywhere! Post-itโ€™s are my best friend and thereโ€™s something so satisfying about crossing off a completed task!

  1. Best advice you’ve ever gotten?

Tough one. Probably the simple saying โ€œKeep your head up.โ€ Positivity is an amazing and powerful thing and I always try to look on the bright side!

  1. You’re given $1,000. How do you spend it?

I guess buying 1/5 of a Chanel Jumbo Flap doesnโ€™t count so probably spending it on a weekend away with my husband. Weโ€™ve had a rough year and deserve it!

  1. Favorite brand(s) and why?

There are so many and Iโ€™m the most indecisive person ever butโ€ฆ Loft because they have amazing wardrobe staples that are cost-friendly, J.Crew because there is something so classic about their pieces, Rebecca Minkoff because I could probably open up my own shop of her handbags, and NARSโ€ฆlove their products.
