How would you best describe your style? I like to wear it all; especially when I get to combine edgy and sophisticated chic. I adore bright colors and prints but never limit myself to wearing darks and minimal pieces. Obsessed with mixing multiple styles to somehow make the unimaginable translate into an effortless look.
Fashion Icons? Solange Knowles
Debbie Harry or Nicole Richie? Nicole Richie. Her style is always ever evolving recently; she knows how to wear it all. I love how she experiments with hair colors and combines it with the most chic ensembles. It shows how you could always keep it classy even after adding a touch of edge to your style. Plus, she’s a mom, brownie points for that.
What made you choose the LB piece you’re currently styling? I’m currently obsessed with pairing a biker, bomber or in this case, a varsity jacket with something more on the feminine side; like skirts. Besides the fact that its gorgeous, this varsity jacket provides enough versatility to wear it on more than one occasion.
A few ways you keep yourself feeling good as a mama? Being able to make the time to take care of myself always makes me happy. Whether I squeeze in early morning on a weekend or after work to do my hair, nails, go to the gym, etc. Oh, also lipstick and coffee, couldn’t survive without them.
What are some things that inspire you when putting together a days look? There are days when I don’t have the time to put an outfit together so I keep it casual and simple. Other times, the outfit will revolve around something Id really like to wear that day. It could be a dress, a pair of shoes, a lipstick, a handbag, or a pair of boots. I focus on the one piece I really want to wear, and take it from there.
Any tips for mamas juggling the demands of motherhood with the desire to still be stylish? Keep it up! We all know that it may be impossible every single day but even the days that toucan’t keep it one hundred percent stylish, stick to those pieces that could provide an easy gateway to feeling stylish every day, like a pair of sunglasses, a faux fur coat, flat ankle boots or a nice handbag. Remember balance is everything. Taking care of your children comes first, but squeeze some time to take care of you, you deserve it.
