How would you describe your personal style?
Where do you love to shop?
Anywhere and everywhere! I always stock up on clothing at the Saks sales each season, and I always find something lovely at Anthropologie. For shoes, it’s Bloomingdales. From there, it’s all about exploration, trial, and error. One of the things I love about being a blogger is the brands that I learn about – thanks to my blog, I’ve shot with the local branches of Anne Fontaine, Cynthia Rowley, and Fossil, to name a few, and after being introduced by way of blogging partnerships, I find myself going back again and again! Lastly, I get a huge thrill out of scoring hard-to-find designer pieces at The Closet and Second Time Around on Newbury.
What are your must-have staple items for a great wardrobe?
Like a tree needs strong roots, a great wardrobe needs strong footwear! Each season I start with a solid foundation of chic, classic, and most importantly comfortable kicks with a heel: ankle booties by Dolce Vita for winter, platform sandals for summer. From there, black jeans with a ton of stretch are a must, followed by an androgynous, slinky white dress shirt and a felt hat to top it off. I just described French street style, didn’t I?
What up and coming trend pieces do you currently own or have your eye on?
As much as I love summer, I sometimes can’t wait for fall, so I can slip into chunky sweaters paired with slim pencil skirts. I’ve got my eye on a textured grey and white sweater from Reiss, an Alexander Wang cream colored sweater with a delightfully random diagonal zipper, and there are a few Topshop pencil skirts in all manners of splashy prints that will definitely add some zhuzh.
