Krystal Bennett is a super stylish graphic designer and our blogger representative for the state of Louisiana. Read on to learn all about how she used her design aesthetic to grow her blog, A Pinch of Lovely, Louisiana style, and what’s hot for spring!
Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you begin blogging?
In the beginning, my blog began as more of a design blog (I’m a graphic designer full-time). I randomly decided to post something that I wore to an event, and I saw the spike in my Google analytics all because of that one post. There was no turning back after that!
Describe your style in 3 words.
Evolving, colorful, thoughtful.
Where do you get your style inspiration?
My favorite sources of inspiration are Pinterest, other bloggers and the J.Crew catalog – Jenna Lyons is a creative genius!
You’re a graphic designer. How does your design aesthetic influence your style?
My design background definitely influences how I piece patterns and colors together and especially when it comes to editing accessories. I pay closer attention to detail and color trends.
How would you describe Louisiana style?
Louisiana style is charming and classic. Pearls are a must-have! I’ve found that South Louisiana is surprisingly more forward thinking and more likely to embrace new trends than the northern part of the state (which is where I’m originally from).
Do you notice and regional trends that may not be as prevalent in other parts of the country?
You don’t see as many people taking risks as you might see in other states or regions, but there is a rapidly growing interest in the fashion industry here in Louisiana. We love our local entrepreneurs and small businesses. We love preppy polos and our seersucker in the summer.
What is your favorite local attraction?
My favorite local attraction is LSU Football. Girls shop all year round to have the perfect tailgate outfit each week!
What is at the top of your wish list this spring?
I’m on the lookout for the perfect, solid colored romper I can wear all season by changing out jewelry and accessories to create new looks.
What do you look for in a piece of jewelry?
I like nice quality pieces that can also be versatile like necklaces that can be worn alone or layered with other pieces.
What is your favorite piece from EvesAddiction.com right now?
My favorite piece on EvesAddiction.com is the rose gold initial necklace that I’m wearing in these photos! I’ve always loved rose gold as a fun alternative to gold or silver.
