How would you describe your style?

My style is constantly evolving depending on my mood and surroundings. I’m not one to subscribe to any particular style-type. However, the foundational principle I always apply is comfort. I only follow trends if I have a connection with the style. But I do love playing with the juxtaposition of fashion, like structured pieces paired with dainty feminine accents (think lacy undergarment paired with a structured blazer).  I’m also becoming more aware of the importance of ethically-made fashions, so I attempt to support labels that have sustainability and workers protections in mind.

What do you love about lingerie?
For me, women’s lingerie is not about dressing for another person’s pleasure but for empowering women to experience their own self-love. I believe in body positivity above anything else and I think women of all shapes and sizes should feel empowered to dress any way that they like, including what’s under their clothes.

What inspires your looks?

More often than not, I think we subconsciously [& consciously] draw our inspiration from our surroundings. I now intentionally try to incorporate the unique artistry from each place I visit into my everyday style. Raised in Santa Fe, my bohemian aesthetic grew from the idyllic lifestyle of the Southwest. My travels to places like Tulum, Mexico have me incorporating breathable beach-worthy fabrics into my everyday wardrobe, and my latest inspiration, a relaxed seventies vibe hails from none other than Palm Springs itself.  It’s impossible not to be inspired by what surrounds you so I think it’s important to travel and experience new cultures to develop an appreciation for alternative ideas about beauty and style.

What’s your perfect go-to outfit?
My everyday style is usually pretty casual and typically consists of comfortable clothing paired with little-to-no makeup. On days I work out, it would not be surprising for me to wear my activewear all day. I mean, flexible, breathable and now trend-inspiring designs, what could be better?
Must-have item for the season?

I’ve been wearing the most comfortable eco bodysuit all summer. It makes getting dressed so simple and it’s ridiculously comfortable.

Who is your style icon?

Don’t get me wrong, every fashion girl loves herself an Alexa Chung or Olivia Palermo, but there’s something very satisfying about a more undercover fashion icon. Alison Mosshart of The Kills and The Dead Weather embodies that elusive style. As someone who spends more of her days off social media creating music than displaying her life to the world, it’s hard to get a play by play record of her everyday style, but when you do get it, it’s quite awe-inspiring. This girl has a grunge-bohemian aesthetic and is what some may describe as the last real rocker chic. She is known to sport leopard button downs, metallic footwear and just the right amount of unkempt bleached hair and has confessed to owning upwards of 50 leather jackets. This girl is a modern day badass.

Source of inspiration at the moment?

I pretty much mastered the art of the road trip this summer and as such was saturated with iconic route 66 experiences, sun bled desert views while sipping margaritas by the poolside and images of iconic sixties pop art. I’m pretty sure I’ll be riding that inspirational high all season long.

Is there a fall fashion trend you’re looking forward to?

I’m so excited for western wear, leather pants and dark tones for fall.

What are your beauty must haves?

I believe healthy skin is the key to beauty with or without makeup so I put more of an emphasis on skincare products than makeup. I spent a good 10 years of my life battling bad acne (and honey, the battle is really never over), so good skincare is no joke to me. My everyday routine includes gently cleansed skin (oil cleanser for removing makeup and pH balanced cleanser for removing dirt), a retinol serum and light moisturizer. I use Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer to even out my skintone while still looking natural (it’s moisturizing and SPF 50 too!), Dr. Jart BB Cream is amazing for a little extra coverage without being too heavy. For makeup, my normal day is very minimal, where I’ll stick with brows, mascara and a tad of bronzer/blush. I’m honestly not much of a makeup person but it’s fun to try new things every once in awhile.

NEVER SAY NEVER FLIRTIE™ BANDEAU BRA

5 things you can’t leave home without.
  1. Sunscreen: At the moment my favorite is Soleil Toujours. I have really fair skin so have to constantly be applying
  2. Sunnies: You won’t catch me without sunnies on a typical day no matter what season
  3. Hat : ‘nough said
  4. Water : I feel like I’m always dehydrated, so I’m constantly drinking water
  5. Phone : I mean really, who can live without this?  
Artist most played on Spotify?
Lately, I’ve been in the habit of trying to experience new music and especially have been loving up-and-coming artists like Maggie Rogers and Nadia Rose. When in doubt I go back to the classics: Rolling Stones, Patti Smith, The Velvet Underground. I usually put something on that aligns with my mood.
