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:

Hello Rigby
Sveeteskapes
Hot Dress Hot Mess
West Coast Aesthetic
Pumps and Plaid
Hey Pretty Thing
The Blonde Giraffe
