How would you describe your style? This is a good question. When I was little, my grandma Markey always referred to the accessories I liked as my “gypsy-junk” and I would dress up in clothes that were often referred to as “Cyndi Lauper-like”, but, looking back, I suppose I’ve always had a feel for the hippie/bohemian style (and I was a teenager in the 90’s, so I definitely went through my grunge phase). As I’ve grown into myself, I have been able to mesh my personal bohemian style with a professional attire with an outcome that is a cross between comfortable and boho-chic. Quite honestly, what I wear is mood-dependent.

What are your hobbies?  My most favorite thing to do in this world is attend live music concerts. They are legit food for my soul. I love interior decorating, and quite often am hunting through HomeGoods or Old Time Pottery for the next inspiring home design item. 

Who is someone fashionable you follow on social media? Grace Potter and Kate Hudson. They definitely carry the boho/chic vibe I enjoy. I also think they are pretty fantastic humans!
