Dream career? Fashion Stylist
How would you describe your style? My style changes by the day! I mostly go for a bohemian-meets-feminine look with a splash of minimal.
Eternal style muse? Alexa Chung
Favorite decade? Definitely the ‘70s!
Favorite item in your closet? I love sneaking statement piece(s) into my daily outfits.
Go-to outfit? A swiss dot white cotton midi! It looks amazing on it’s own I hardly have to dress up. It makes me feel incredibly soft and feminine. I throw on a pair of pointed toe boots and I’m good to go.
Sneakers or Heels? Neither! I’m a boot and gladiator girl.
What are you reading right now? Porter magazine.
Who’s on your playlist right now? “Till Sunrise” by Goldroom. I swear I could listen to it on repeat for hours.
Best place to find inspiration? On the road. Traveling opens your eyes to so many new horizons. I love to see how people dress in different regions.
Who do you Insta-stalk? Tasha Oakley is my latest Insta obsession. Jen Coleman though, is my OG Insta love.
Favorite people-watching spot? You can never go wrong with Walmart, especially after midnight! That’s when you’ll see the most interesting characters.
Number one style rule to live by? Never say, “I can’t pull that off.” You never know until you try! The only reason certain people “pull things off” is because they own that sequin maxi in the middle of the day. Confidence is key.
What is your favorite fall trend? Leather leggings. Somewhat cliché, but they have this polished look that I am obsessed with.
What’s your biggest accomplishment so far? I had a spontaneous idea to travel the United States by car for 40 days. I didn’t just let it sit in my dream box, I made the trip happen this past summer. It was terrified at first, but I had the time of my life and can’t wait to do it again.
What do you hope to accomplish in the next year? I hope to take my blog marthaandlyuda.com to the next level and land a job I’m proud of.
