How has your style evolved over the years?
My style is pretty much based on how I am feeling that specific date. Over the years my style has changed from almost “boy-ish.” Jeans, loose graphic tees and tennis shoes to now more on the girly side wearing flowy dresses, skirts, and wedges/heels and actually carrying around purses!
Who is your biggest style inspiration & why?
Rachel Bilson. Her style is a mix of classic and chic. I love how she can wear casual pieces yet make it look very chic & feminine.
What’s on your fashion “must-have list” for every woman?
Comfortable well fitted jeans, little black dress, and black heels!
Whose closet would you love to raid & why?
Fashion blogger Julie Sarinana aka SincerelyJules. There is probably not one outfit she has shown that I have disliked and when I feel I have nothing to wear I go to her page and get a little inspiration. So her closet would definitely be fun to raid!
What kind of style adjustments have you made during your pregnancy, if any?
Probably just setting aside my 5-6 inch high heels. I do however stick to the high wedges 😉
What is your best advice for pregnant women going through a fashion rut?
Get all the clothes that you love that no longer fit you and put them away somewhere and that way you won’t try them on and feel bummed. If you don’t want to buy maternity clothes (me) buy clothes in bigger sizes that look flattering with your beautiful bump.
What’s the best advice beauty advice you’ve ever received?
My mom always told me to wear sunblock for skin protection and so that I won’t look like I aged quicker. Also to drink lots of water and use moisturizers for face hydration.
If you had to wear 1 outfit for the rest of your life, what would it consist of?
My favorite pair of jeans, black tee and my combat boots.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
My daily iced mochas from Starbucks or listening to boy bands on iTunes like Backstreet Boys, Nsync and One Direction. Did I really just admit that? Haha.
