How would you describe your style?
My style is best described as casual, sporty and feminine. I live in workout clothes (also known as the #MomUniform) but LOVE any chance to doll up!
What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?
Currently this skirt by The Tulle Project takes the cake for the most magnificent thing I own! Runner up is my Zella leggings - which I rotate several times a week ;)
Who are your style icons?
My style icons include Rachel Zoe, Marilyn Monroe & Beyonce - I adore fierce women who make statements on the daily.
Do you have any favourite designers?
Honestly, I love independent designers - the people that spend hours upon days working on their craft, pursuing their passions. I am so inspired by small business makers and I love how they are shaping modern consumerism.
Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?
I love shopping boutiques, especially in Seattle! If I'm hitting the mall - Nordstrom is my go-to!
Do you make or customise your outfits?
Sometimes I'll add something fun like a scarf to a purse or a patch to a jacket - but typically I just mix and match styles to come up with different looks.
Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?
First and foremost - wear something you'll feel confident in. If it feels right - go for it. Find your favorite thing in your closet - then add away! Winter is the perfect time to accessorize with hats, scarfs and boots.
Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?
I am a BIG fan of Seattle fashion bloggers - a few of my fave's include:
Hot Dress Hot Mess
West Coast Aesthetic
Pumps and Plaid
Hey Pretty Thing
The Blonde Giraffe
