Describe your style in three words. Downtown, simple, chic
Are there any fashion trends you’re currently excited about?
I am not much of a trend follower, although I am excited to see the splash of color and prints this spring. I like to keep my style timeless and basic. Maybe I will add a trendy piece here and there, but it all depends on my mood.
You seem to juggle family life and fashion effortlessly. Any beauty/fashion secrets?
I have very little time to pamper myself and shop. There really is no secret. It’s just taking the small amount of time that you have for yourself and making the best of it – whether it be running uptown to a hair salon, getting a massage or making sure to know exactly where and when the sample sales are at the end of the season!
