On an average day, you’ll find me in:
A pastel outfit, most likely a dress—just add glitter.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me:
Romping around town running all the errands a busy entrepreneur can fit in outside of "work" time and finding balance to have all the fun, too, like nail appointments (nail art is an obsession), thrifting/vintage shopping, winery hopping and restaurant dining (Cville has some of the BEST wineries and restaurants in VA and beyond!), brow/hair appointments, an ocassional facial (because self care), dance cardio in my living room, or hanging out at home with my cutie brand new husband and my old cat, Kittypoopbutt.
Who or what inspires or influences your style?
I'm super inspired by those that take risks with style, and a sense of playfulness and whimsy to getting dressed. The more I've leaned into dressing for the mood I want (I'm creating a whole style academy around this mindset!) and playing dress up with a sense of wonder when I feel uninspired and dull, the more fearless I've been with my personal style. Of course there's days when I leave the house and have a "is this too much?" moment... but then I just remind myself I get dressed for myself, not for others. And all that matters is how I feel in what I'm wearing! Oh, and all things Copenhagen Fashion Week and Copenhagen designers. OBSESSED.
Who is your style icon & why?
Iris Apfel has always been a style icon for me. After watching the documentary, Iris, I fell in love with her approach to style. One time she commented (aka her social media person) on a post of mine and I couldn't stop talking about it for weeks. Here's one of my favorite quotes of hers: "Great personal style is an extreme curiosity about yourself." - Iris Apfel
Do you have a girl crush?
I have a quite a few Instagram girl crushes!!! 1. @heartzeena—I just want to be her best friend 🙂 2. @flybynight—Everything Laura does is magic. 3. @panache—see #2. She made me a custom pet portrait for my cat Kittypoopbutt, and we became Instagram friends. 4. @nxcv.a—the absolute cutest with the absolute raddest style. 5. @frollein_herr—okay you get it, I have a lot of girl crushes! Because women should celebrate each other!
What are you watching or reading or hobbying right now?
Well, I got married in September, so honestly, my biggest "hobby” the past few months was wedding planning and sourcing all the flowers and decor since I had a mostly DIY wedding. It was so much work, but I loved it so much. And my husband helped with so much of the decor—he built our arbor and all our signage and even helped me with our disco ball baby’s breath chandelier cuz he’s the best ever.
I also have been loving Ted Lasso and Only Murders in the Building. Oh, and Halston was also an incredible recent watch.
What three things could you not live without?
So I let my husband answer this one... because I felt it would be most accurate 😉 "Cheese, chocolate, and wine" All food related, he knows me so well!
