Oh Joy

{closet & casa} with kristin appenbrink...
28 Mar 2012


who: Kristin Appenbrink, Web Editor at Real Simple Magazine & Ice Cream Enthusiast

why kristin rocks: She started an ice cream company out of her Brooklyn kitchen—each batch is made with love!

in her closet: This is a really recent addition to my wardrobe. I've been on the hunt for a dress that will be versatile enough for all the events I have coming up this spring and summer. From weddings to baptisms and everything in between, as soon as I can put away all my tights this dress will likely be in heavy rotation. And really, what's not to love about it—polka dots and metallics from kate spade new york. It doesn't get much better than that.

in her casa: Choosing a piece for this series really made me examine the items that I have in my home and think about why they were important to me. This little painting {it's only about five inches square} was a gift from my sister during the first year I lived in New York. I found out about this Swedish artist when I was interning at Real Simple over the summer and working on my first ever holiday gift guide. Since then, this piece has been in my apartment, atop my bookcase in front of my stationery box and now hangs on the wall. It might be small, but it's one of the most meaningful pieces in my home.

Thanks Kristin!
