How would you best describe your style? It’s always evolving. I love to have fun with fashion and try new things. I typically dress to match my mood – sometimes I’m feeling sporty, sometimes I’m feeling wild, sometimes I want to be understated. I don’t take it too seriously, and I always like to add something unexpected whether it’s a dark lip, or some badass shoes.
Jane Birkin or Olivia Palermo? Jane Birkin – what a goddess.
If you could have any TV or movie character’s wardrobe, whose would you
choose and why? Mother of Dragons, Khaleesi. She’s my hero.
What made you choose the LB piece you’re currently styling? I love crop tops in the summer and I’m obsessed with graphic t-shirts – it’s a winning combo.
What’s in your bag? At least 5 lipsticks, my essential oils, Rescue Remedy, baby wipes, phone and wallet.
What has been the best fashion/beauty advice you’ve received? Be yourself – it’s so beautiful when people show up as their authentic selves, whatever that may be. The best clothing or beauty products in the world can’t replace a genuine person that is comfortable in their skin.
How do you reset, recharge and keep feeling good as a mama? A good workout/yoga class always helps me feel recharged and a hot bath with a good book and glass of wine helps me chill out. I love to dance, so a night of dancing is always good for my soul too.
How has your style changed since becoming a mom? My style is always evolving, but I think that comes with age not with Motherhood. I don’t believe I need to limit myself because of my role as a Mother. I want my children to know they are free to express themselves in any way possible, including style.
Any tips for mamas juggling the demands of motherhood with the desire to still be stylish? Try not to overthink it – be yourself, but be open and willing to try new things/styles. Often the magic happens when you push yourself outside your comfort zone.
