What is a ‘must-have’ item in your closet? High-waisted black pleated pants, it's great for both job-wear or hang out-wear.
Leather or lace? Leather!
What is your favorite app? My favorite app will always be Instagram, but Snapchat is becoming a close favorite.
Must-have summer accessory? A great statement clutch with a strap. It's simple, small and light for those hot summer days!
What is your go-to ‘girls night out’ outfit? My go-to 'girls night out' outfit is a pair of high-waisted culottes and a loose crop top to match. I'd pair that with booties or wedges to hang out all night in.
What is your opinion on ‘socks and sandals’? Socks and sandals if done right is super trendy. I personally don't really rock that style, but envy those who do!
Ultimate style muse? Solange Knowles, hands down, has been killing the fashion game. I love her fun approach to styling and put together looks.
Who do you stalk on Instagram? I'm not going to lie, Kylie and Kendall Jenner! I'm always left wanting more fashion inspiration when I check their Insta feed.
How do you feel about denim-on-denim? Denim-on-denim is kind of my speciality! I love combining different shades of denim together to mix and match. I think if it looks great, who cares if it's a fashion don't.
What is the number one style rule to live by? Stay true to yourself! I know it's cliché, but in whatever you wear, wear it because you love it, not because it's accepted.
What is your biggest “under 25” accomplishment so far? My biggest accomplishment thus far has got to be my move from Florida to NYC to pursue my fashion and photography dreams. Of course there have been small accomplishments along the way, but moving here and connecting with the right people have opened so many doors for me.
What do you hope to accomplish by 35? I would love to be in a high level or rank (Girl Boss; ha!) in an organization providing 1. Trendsetting fashion advice and 2. Photographing street trends and showcasing the next best thing.
