What is your style inspiration?

“I like to wear classic, chic, outfits that are put together but also comfortable. I come up with my outfits myself and don’t have a specific person I take style inspiration from.”

What are your favorite brands?

“My favorite brand is J. Crew, and I also love Banana Republic, Mango, and Madewell.”

What is your favorite color?

“My favorite color is fuchsia pink. I like to wear bright colors, pastels don’t look good on me. Green, and yellow don’t suit me either.”

What is your favorite season to dress up for?

“Ironically, I love winter clothes, but I don’t like winter. I like spring too.”

What is one item that you cant live without?

“My sweater from J. Crew that I own in different colors. It is nice when I don’t know what to wear because it goes with everything and is very comfortable. If I like something, I get it in a different color.”

What is your favorite item in your closet?

“I love loafers, for example in my favorite outfit I am also wearing loafers. I recently got these black and white loafers from G.H. Bass that I am excited to wear.”

What is your favorite accessory?

“My white butterfly necklace that my daughter gifted me. Not only is it beautiful, but it also has a story behind it and sentimental value to me.”

What is one item on your wishlist?

“Something that is currently on my wishlist is this denim blazer from Gap.”
