How would you describe your style?
I would say my style is sophisticated boho.
What is one thing from your closet that you can’t live without?
Definitely my oversized sweaters. They are so effortless and cozy yet stylish, and I can throw them on over everything. They’re amazing!
Where are all the pieces you are wearing currently from?
My dress is from Lulus, my sweater is from Francesca’s and my flats are from White House Black Market. My purse is Kate Spade, and the key chain I got from Amazon. My favorite thing I am wearing would have to be the necklace that my boyfriend got custom made for me.
If you could swap wardrobes with anyone who would it be?
Probably Blake Lively. Her closet is really “goals” for me. No matter what she wears, she always looks amazing and so put together. One of my favorite looks she has worn is her outfit for “73 questions with Blake Lively” that she did for Vogue. In the interview, she wore a really chic color block dress, and she looked fabulous.
Where do you find your fashion inspiration?
I go to social media, particularly Instagram, for my fashion inspiration. I follow lots of the girls from the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” past seasons. JoJo Fletcher is one of my favorite girls to follow; she always posts unique looks, and I feel like we have similar styles.
What is your favorite trend right now?
I like all the fun sayings people are putting on clothes. I also love the one-piece bathing suits from Private Party. You can customize the swimsuits by picking the color and unique phrase you want printed on the front. I think it’s cool that people are having fun with their clothing.
What should every woman have in her closet?
I think it’s important for every woman to have a pair of comfortable yet cute sneakers. I personally love Vans; I’m from the West Coast, so Vans have always been my go-to sneaker.
Have you always been into fashion?
Yes, I almost majored in fashion. I worked in the fashion industry for a short while but realized it wasn’t for me. I decided I’d rather keep fashion strictly fun. I think fashion is amazing; it’s something you can always have in your life, and you can change it up whenever you please.
