We’re excited to have Nichole from Vanilla Extract on our style blog today! Her blog is full of outfits we want to copy, home decor we try to hack, and travel we lust over! With style like hers, she was the obvious choice to show us how to work one of our favorite fall trends, fall hats! Hats are everywhere right now in dozens of styles and shapes that can seem intimidating, but with Nichole’s help we’re ready to wear these toppers all season long!
Name: Nichole Ciotti

City: San Francisco Bay Area
How would you describe your style?
Simple, classic, and casual.
When and why did you start your blog?
I started VE in August 2012 shortly after my boyfriend and I moved to San Francisco from the east coast. It was a way for us to chronicle our adventures for family and friends, but also an opportunity to share and talk about things I love!

Vanilla Extract feels so fresh and innovative! Where do you find inspiration for your style as well as everyday life?
Thank you so much! I find inspiration around every corner; nature (especially fall leaves!), street style, a cute cafe, Instagram, and magazines. I take what I love and re-imagine it in a way that feels unique to me.
