Q: Any other tips/tricks for creating an easy yet chic capsule wardrobe?
A: Don't overthink it. Stick to classic basics you can wear from day to night. You can always elevate a look with a statement accessory or piece. Wear whatever makes you feel the most confident!
Q: Favorite colors for Fall? Favorite Fall fashion trends?
A: I’m normally a neutral girl, but I have been loving deep, olive greens. Why not change it up with a pop of color this season? My must-haves this fall: A versatile blazer, a creamy trench coat, a chic striped sweater, anything knit, a good booty, and statement sunglasses.
