Let’s get the basics out of the way:  where you live, how many kids, etc.: I live in Philadelphia, PA and no kids! (I love Raines and Pax like my own, though..seriously those guys are the best).

Three words to describe your personal style. Go.: Classic, clean, understated. 

Who are your style icons? How do you integrate those tastes into your own wardrobe if at all?: Rosie Huntington Whiteley is a big one..she does simple and chic so well (I guess that’s why they created the term “model off duty”, right?) A lot of the color she wears seems to be muted or more earth-tone which is exactly what I gravitate toward when shopping for myself. 

What’s your most-worn piece? (If it’s sweatpants…we won’t tell.): It might be my Paige flares! I wear them every time I get the chance. 

Sometimes it’s hard to gauge height from an Instagram or blog post – SO…how tall are you?: 5’8″ 

Your top three beauty products?: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette (pricey but I swear it’s the best thing ever) Mario Badescu drying lotion – it’s magic. 

What drew you to blogging and when did you start?: My background is in marketing and communications but I’ve always loved fashion – almost went to school for it! I’m no stranger to writing either so really, blogging chose me (cheesy but TRUE). Shana brought me on board and it’s arguably the best thing that’s ever happened to me! 

What does a typical day look like? A typical day involves me & S at the office *sometimes hiding out in the kitchen because…coffee. When we’re not catching up with our amazing team (I always look forward to our weekly calls) we’re just blogging away! And for those of you who may not be familiar with this industry, that could involve anything from running to the post office, to preparing photoshoots, to crouching down (to Shana size of course) as a stand in to get the perfect shot. 

What did you dream of being when you were young?: A fashion designer. Considering what I ACTUALLY went to school for I think this is amazingly close! 8 year old me would be totally impressed. 

What’s one fashion risk you love to see on others but would NEVER take yourself?: Menswear. I’m a bigger fan of things like; ruffles, things that accentuate my waist, softer colors – allll of that. Menswear, in my mind, just wouldn’t look good on me but I’ve seen some seriously amazing looks on others.
