How would you describe your style?

Hi! I’ve been quoted (and mis-quoted) as saying “J.Crew in middle school”. I love really classic pieces, but have to have a bright color or fun pattern thrown in the mix. I would also describe it as “quirky classy.”

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

Definitely tough! And definitely always changing. I love a great patterned dress or skirt, so right now I’d have to say this pretty dress I picked up at Gap Factory.

Who are your style icons?

Is it so blogger-y of me to say mostly bloggers? Street style is so much more relevant to me because I rarely attend red-carpet events. Sydney of The Daybook was the first blogger I really followed, and although I don’t identify with her style as much lately, throwback Sydney is near perfection. As for real celebs, Michelle Obama, Zooey Deschanel, Rachel Bilson, and recently Lupita Nyong'o (flawless. Killing it.)

Do you have any favourite designers?

Kate Spade, all the way! I really don’t know enough about designers, but I’ll add Rachel Roy, Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Christopher Kane, and Erin Fetherston.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

Old Navy, not the most exciting answer, but it’s very accurate. I also love H&M, Target, and my sister’s closet, ha.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Very rarely do I make things, (and jewelry more than clothing, for sure!) but I would say I customize them (i.e. adding a brooch, cutting something to make something else, hemming, adjusting the fit, etc.)

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?

Use accessories liberally! And stash those accessories where you can see them, so you remember to use them. Have a couple pieces that you love and wear them again&again&again, make them your trademarks. Never compromise on fit when you’re shopping, but if you did, think about how you can re-work a piece before you get rid of it (ex: if your dress is too short, cut it to make a top or skirt!) An easy way to start any outfit is pick out a piece you love first, and let the rest fall around it, showcasing your favorite piece! I use that formula a lot!

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

I mentioned The Daybook, which I’ll probably read forever. Of North (formerly Urban Tease) I have also followed for years! A few more gems: Room 334, Here&Now, The Adored Life, and Joyful Outfits.
