What words would you use to describe your style? If I had to pin it down to just a few words, I would probably say affordable Southern chic. However, my style reflects my personality; it’s a bit boho, beachy, and edgy, depending on the day or occasion.

What do you want your style to say about who you are? I hope my outfits say that I’m confident, adventurous and fun. I love trying new trends or adding a fun statement piece. I hope that my personality shines through to the world by my outfit choice.

What is your favorite store to shop at? I love a lot of local boutiques: L. Mae, Wild Mabel, Sa’Shay on Main, and Mustard Seed boutique. I also love good staples from Old Navy and Aerie. My favorite place to shop for special occasions or statement pieces are Shein and Forever 21; they’re cheap and perfect for one-time wear items.

What item in your closet brings you the most joy? Surprisingly, it’s not even a piece of clothing. I have a Dolly Parton poster that hangs in my closet that belonged to my Papa. I LOVE Dolly and thought my closet was the best place to hang her, so that every day, when I’m getting ready, I can ask myself, WWDD [What would Dolly Do?] And let me tell you, Dolly definitely would wear the statement piece, the heels and over-accessorize.
