Who are some of your personal style icons?

Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, and Lauren Bacall

Who are your favorite designers?

Different designers have different strengths.  For denim I'm loving Colovos and Rachel Comey, for luxurious sweaters I turn to Isabel Marant.  CP Shades makes the absolute best t-shirts and you can't beat No. 6 boots in the winter time.

Where do you like to shop?

I like small stores with an intimate feel like Zero, Isabel Marant, Warm, and Ochre.

What advice do you have for women who are still trying to figure out their personal style?

Go back to basics - start by wearing all one color, then gradually add in the shapes, colors, and textures that speak to you.

What are your most valued rituals of self-care?

I always make sure to eat healthy, indulge my skin, get plenty of rest, drink green juice, eat dark chocolate, and laugh.

What is the one beauty product you can't live without?

Rose facial spray

Where do you fantasize about living?

On the ocean - I love the water and salt air.


Where do you turn to for inspiration?

I feel inspired by uncluttered, open spaces that allow my mind to roam freely.  Whether I find it in nature, an art gallery, or a picture in a magazine, they leave me feeling refreshed. 

What do you feel most proud of?

I'm proud of having been a female business owner for 17 years and for being a single mother - I feel super lucky today.

What would be your ideal Sunday afternoon?

Sleep in (never happens), be lazy (never happens), and spend quality time with my friends and Charlie (can never happen enough).

What's your favorite thing to dress Charlie in?

I like to let her be her own person, so my favorite thing is to see what she picks out for herself.  And let me tell you, this kid has style.  She loves digging around my closet and wearing all my shoes.  A love of fashion is something I hope that we can always share.

What's a skill you'd like to learn?

I'd love to take a pottery class.

What are you listening to right now?

Journey (because I'm on a new one), Drake, and Rhianna because Charlie loves her.  We love to dance at home to everything!
