1. How do you define your style?
I really love a lot of different
styles, so it is really hard for me to define my style. I love classic
looks, casual, preppy and of course I love to glamour up when I go out
with my husband or friends. I also love the romantic
look, with ruffles and lace! One style I do stay away from is the edgy
or even the goth look, except I do love a touch of leather (such as
leather lined leggings) here and there.
2. What is
your favorite outfit?
My easy go to outfit is a striped tee, a fun
scarf, a utility jacket if it is a little chilly as an extra layer,
skinny jeans and a cute pair of earrings and flats.
3. What store would you pick for an unlimited shopping spree?
Charming Charlie, because I am the accessory queen!
4. How has your fashion changed since becoming a mom?
I was a working mom
until a month and a half ago when I was laid off from my job. My
husband and I decided it would be best for me to become a stay at home mom,
so I am currently getting used to sahm-wear! At my old job, I would
dress in business casual attire, so I still have a lot of nicer pieces
in my closet. What I have been working on is incorporating some of my
old pieces that I wore at my old job with some of my more casual pieces.
Or, I’ll pair a t-shirt and skinny jeans with a nice statement necklace
or scarf to spruce up the outfit. I try not to wear a lot of black and
greys, I love having color to my outfits!
5. What advice would you give other moms on fashion?
I try to dress up, even if the only part of my day outside the house is
my kinds drop off and pick up! I do give myself ‘bumming’ days if the
kids are sick or if I know it is going to be a day of mass cleaning in
the house. Sometimes I will throw on a nice statement necklace for when I
run out of the house and then as soon as I get home I will put it away.
I think something as simple as putting on a nice necklace can make your
face shine more and add a lot of punch to your appearance. I have also
been trying to be better about giving myself manicures, I try to do this
once or twice a week in the car while I am waiting to pick up my son!
6. Where does your fashion inspiration come from?
I read several fashion magazines and I follow a lot of fashion blogs. I also do a lot of people watching and window browsing at the mall and I get some wonderful fashion
ideas from that alone!
7. Anything else you’d like
I shop at inexpensive stores for the latest trends that I know
will go out of style quickly such as H&M and Forever21. I have found
that the quality of the merchandise I buy at these stores is fairly
