What is your personal style: A little bit of everything. I like to mix and match. For example, today I wore a sweet royal blue sundress with pink beading and paired it with more edgy studded sandals. I love mixing denim shirts and black jeans, leopard and camouflage…it just depends on how I feel that day.
Clothing item I can’t live without is: my black skinny jeans and combat boots. The jeans can transition easily from day to night and my combat boots add a little edge and sass when I feel like it
Favorite beauty item: Moroccan Oil Curl cream. My hair is naturally curly and this is the first product I have found that doesn’t make my hair frizzy or crunchy (like gel). It defines the curl and smells amazing!
Biggest Celeb Crush: Ryan. Gosling.
Every woman should own: A power shoe. Mine is my Steve Madden leopard print flats. It’s so important to have a shoe that makes you feel invincible!
Fashion trend that should have never happened: The kitten heel.
Best accessory for an outfit: May sound cheesy, but confidence is key. If you’re not comfortable in an outfit, no one else will believe you are either. Don’t be afraid to work it.
Shopping style: Sale rack first and then I shop the rest of the store. I like bargains but if it’s something I absolutely can’t live without then I am willing to splurge. I usually take my mom with me because she keeps me on track and keeps me from getting distracted, and she’s my best friend. I respect her honest opinion.
Interesting fact: I read magazines backwards.
Quote to live by: “When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.” –Shauna Niequist
Best impulse buy: My black leather Jeffrey Campbell Lita booties
Cannot live without: Iced Green Tea with Pomegranate from Dutch Bros. Also, my iphone. I know, so lame. But when you are running around as much as I do, it’s so important to have.
Favorite store: Urban Outfitters, H&M, Zara, Buffalo Exchange, Forever 21
Music I love: I am not picky when it comes to music! Country, house, dubstep, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, The Civil Wars, Mumford and Sons, BEYONCE, Justin Timberlake…you name it and I probably like it.
We are so excited to have Kelly on our team! Make sure to be on the look out for her awesome fashion tips, yummy recipes and cool DIY projects.
