1. How do you describe your personal style?
I feel like my style can be described in two different ways: 1) Preppy with lots of classic sportswear pieces and 2) Vintage Girlie with lots of floral print dresses, vintage furs and hair bows. The two looks are often combined.
2. Where do you find/pull inspiration from?
I definitely find inspiration from other bloggers. Their creativity and ingenuity really makes me rethink my wardrobe and how I pull together outfits. My second biggest inspiration comes from movies. My husband, Cole, watches movies for the scenery and architecture, and I watch them for the clothes…oh to be a costume designer.
3. Name one fashion accessory you can't live without?
Probably my glasses, because without them I’m blind. ;) But in all seriousness, my hair bows. I love them and try to incorporate them into every outfit.
4. I never break this fashion rule...
Rules are meant to broken. I just always try to look classy and pulled together. That’s my rule.
5. Your next must have purchase?
I’m coveting this faux fur coat from Urban Outfitters: http://bit.ly/25WP9u.
6. Most underrated item in womenwear?
Hmm, tough question, but I have to say hats. I adore hats and wish both men and women still wore them every day (along with gloves).
7. For all the fashionastas, provide one piece of invaluable fashion advice.
Be true to your own style. You don’t have to follow every trend, find what you love and embrace it!
