Who or what inspires your style? “My sister told me when I was younger that I needed to develop a ‘uniform,’ or a go-to outfit. Mine is a plain shirt with a statement necklace. I’m also very inspired by the country lifestyle. I love horseback riding so I wear my riding boots a lot.”
Where do you like to shop? “I don’t like to shop actually! So I typically just go wherever has clothes that fit me, like Target or local boutiques.”
Why did you choose this particular outfit? “Because it’s raining and you need some sunshine in your life! So I wanted to wear bright colors today and I just always love wearing my cowboy boots.”
What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? “Wear what makes you feel comfortable and, like my sister said, develop a uniform.”
What are your favorite trends right now? “I’m not really into trends. But I do find the equestrian trend funny, because I wear that kind of clothing for riding.”
