Each month, we're spotlighting one of our CANVAS Style friends to let you meet & learn a bit more about some of the faces that pop up on our Instagram. They're answering our go-to ice-breakers and sharing some of their favorite CANVAS Style pieces.

This month, we talked with Kate Lewis of @kateonthedaily. We love her classic style and how she accessorizes her looks. Be sure to give her a follow!

Get to know Kate

1. What is your go-to hostess gift to bring to a party?
Something personal for the hostess. For example, if it's a friend who likes to read, it might be a book and a bottle of wine. 

2. What’s your favorite cocktail?
Gin and tonic with plenty of lime! 

3. What’s your favorite place to travel? Where do you want to go next?
We have recently started spending more time on the Gulf Coast at Port Saint Joe, FL and we are loving it, so that's my current favorite place. We have bought a little place there so that's where I'll be going next.  The sunsets are just magnificent. 

4. What is your favorite holiday to decorate for?
This is more a season, but I love everything for Fall.  Getting firewood, preparing the fireplace, fluffing up cozy blankets, pulling big mugs for tea and hot chocolate to the front of the cabinet....shifting away from the heat of the summer is good for my soul. 

5. What’s your # tip for hosting?
Don't overthink it; just extend some kindness. People are glad to be invited (and they are happy to not have to figure out dinner!) so they aren't judging your baseboards like you think they are.   

6. What’s your favorite CANVAS Style piece or collection?
The Elisha Pearl Cross Statement Necklace in Worn Gold. The size of the cross and the chain detail make it so interesting. I love it with a vneck shirt or peeking out from under a scarf.
