Favorite designers and stores?
Favorite designer is Karen Walker and go-to stores are definitely J. Crew, Urban Outfitters and LOFT.
What’s your general fashion inspiration? How would you define your style?
Very classic with a slightly girly feel. I usually begin with very basic and simple pieces, and then add one or two trendy accents to punch it up.
What was the inspiration behind this particular outfit?
Actually, it was the shoes. To me, when you have shoes that you adore like these, the outfit has to work around them. Also, I basically live in dresses so the floral gave it a fun, summery feel with the belt making it a little more rugged.
What’s your favorite thing about the mark. internship so far?
Definitely the people in the company that we’ve gotten to meet. It’s been such a great opportunity to get one-on-one time, wisdom, and guidance from these amazingly successful and smart women. We’re so lucky to be exposed to these sorts of role models this early in our careers.
Favorite mark. product to take on a desert island?
Curl Goddess Curl and Wave Defining Gel ($6) – perfect beachy waves.
What are your fashion and beauty summer must-haves?
For fashion, like I said, fun dresses are a summer essential. They are so easy and breathable and transfer perfectly from day to night. As far as beauty goes, I never leave the house without Cheat Sheets ($5). They save my skin from getting too oily and keep my makeup in place.
And finally, the best thing about being in NYC for the summer? What’s the number 1 thing to do?
The best thing about New York in the summer is all of the awesome outdoor events. Whether there are street fairs, concerts, shows, festivals, you name it, there’s always something fun to do outside in the gorgeous weather.The #1 thing to do that I have found are the Hudson River Park events- they do free concerts, movie showings, and dance lessons on the water at sunset several nights a week. So much fun!
