Least Favorite Designers/Brands: Rather than having a least favorite brand, my least favorite look is wearing a designer piece that’s covered in the logo.

What You Love to Wear: Black tight pants. I grew up as a dancer and lived in tights. Stretch pants are like my second skin; they’re so comfy and are easy to pair with a blazer, sweater, etc.
What You Hate to Wear: I wish I looked good in hats. However, my head is on the smaller side so finding a fedora that fits my proportions is a struggle.

Do You Like to Accessorize (Jewelry, Scarves, etc.)? I have two young kids, so I keep my accessorizing simple.
Favorite Stores/Boutiques: Felt and Blake.
Style/Fashion Tips and/or Advice: When in doubt, opt for neutrals. Grey and black are my go-tos.
Stylish Aspirations: I never want to simply follow the trends and copy what everyone else is wearing. Rather I aim to interpret the trends so they are unique to my style.
Fall/Winter Style Must-Have: Alexander Wang Gabi boots.
