On an average day, you’ll find me in:
Grandma pants and a button-down of some sort, preferably pattern mixed to the hilt.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me:
Procrastinating home renovation tasks, mostly. Luckily that’s easy with two sprogs and the ever-eternal promise of Thrift Gold.
What are you passionate about?
Old things, color, pattern, authenticity.
Who or what inspires or influences your style?
All sorts of things! Stylish Insta-persons and Pinterest are obvious ones, but also memories, moods, movies. The aforementioned passion for old things and vintage is a big driver.
Do you have a style icon? Why are they your style icon?
Honestly, I really don’t. Anyone who marches to the beat of their own fashion drum is a style icon in my book.
I love that we all have our own taste, our own way of expressing ourselves in how we dress (even if you think you don’t- you do). Clothes can be transformative, a way of expressing yourself and/ or the person you want to put out into the world. But at the end of the day, what is most important is that you feel good in what you wear. Of course, I’ve had 30-mumble years to come to this realization—I spent years wearing things that I had decided were what I should wear but weren’t really what I wanted to wear. And that’s ok! Who cares?! Do whatever until you find what works for you.
What are you watching or reading or hobbying right now?
My hobby is buying old houses and regretting it. We're knee-deep in a renovation of a 1936 limestone beast in SATX right now (hence the bare walls and lack of baseboards) and we’re lucky if a week goes by and we don’t discover a new issue. My other hobby is daydreaming about how I want my house to look but then not actually doing anything to move forward to that point.
What three things could you not live without?
A to-do list, a clean car, purpose.
