Blog Monday: That's So Katie.

What are 3-4 objects/things that, when seen by others, make them immediately think of you?

1. Coffee. Well, Starbucks.
I'm not sure if it was my one year of employment @ Starbucks or the years during high school when my dad would take me to Starbucks every Tuesday before Creative Writing class with Goshorn, but this is one of those things that is pretty much synonomous with my favorites. Hence the name of the entire blog. I'm known to get the Caramel Macchiato, or, more recently, the Misto. I'm also known for collecting coffee mugs, as my husband will tell you - maybe too many mugs. But I just love them. I'll take any opportunity or excuse to go to Starbucks for a quick coffee or a long chat over a well manicured Caramel Macchiato in a for-here mug.

2. Polka Dots / Black and White.
It was the wedding day signature, so I'm assuming it will stick for the rest of my lifetime. But I'm okay with that. Cuz obviously I LOVE them. Just last month, I was at a bridal shower for one of Bry's cousins and she was handed the next gift, wrapped in a polka dot bag and Bry's aunt shouts out - "oh, Katie!". Yep. That's me.

3. Heels.
Well you know I'ma shortie. And every time I wear flats I feel like a 12 year old. So, as much as possible, I try to wear heels 3 1/2 inches or higher. Combined with the fact that I LOVE shoes, I've had some pretty wild heels in my closet over the years. I usually wear heels to my own detriment, where I can no longer walk after a five hour concert of dancing and bouncing and my smart friend, who chose to wear flat flip flops (but she's 5'7''!) has to give me a piggy back ride through downtown Detroit to our car parked a quarter mile away. Let's just say my heels can also sometime be memory-making geniuses!

4. The Gap.
Ever since I can remember picking stores to shop at during my all-time favorite sprees with my Grandma, the Gap was my store of choice. I love anything Gap and find that their jeans are my favorite fit. Which takes a lot for a girl to claim. But I'm all about the classic, preppysometimeshippy, clean, comfy look that Gap offers. And I take it out of the store in hundred dollar increments if I'm shopping at Gap Chicago after a 5k, cuz a Moiseeff yelled out "Katie wants to go to Gap!" :) But it's my staple store - old reliable. And when I walk in those doors with my GapCreditCard in hand, Gap knows it's in for some good top fashion reliable business.

blessed by being know.
