How would you describe your personal style? 

I always struggle with this because I think it’s continuously evolving. I also think it changes with each season if that makes sense. In the summer, I love a boho chic look and in the winter I love layering up bold stripes and other patterns. What I do know for sure is that I like to invest in classic pieces that I am going to have for a very long time (leather bags, boots, etc.). I also love to try new trends but don’t love to spend a lot on them.

What/Who inspires your fashion choices?

Pinterest is a big one for me lately. It’s just so dang easy. When I get a new piece (like a blanket scarf for example), I just type it into the search bar and Voila! So many outfit ideas at my fingertips. I also look at other fashion and style blogs a LOT. I use Bloglovin’ and probably follow about 100 different blogs.

What’s the one thing in your closet you can’t live without?

My Hunter boots.  Grab a pair in classic black here

What are your three favorite places to shop? 

Nordstrom, Shopbop and my sister’s closet.

If Blog isn’t The New Black – what is? 

Cleveland, duh! 🙂
