What do you love most about fashion?
Fashion is an art that every single person expresses in their own personal way. That's what I love about it; it's always personal.

If you could swap closets with anyone, who would it be and why?
I would have to say Mary Kate Olsen. She is always true to her own personal style and is so effortlessly casual yet edgy. Love!

If you had to describe your style in one word, what would it be?
Classicedgewithatouchofbeach—thats one word on Twitter, I swear.

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
Denim cut-offs all the way. They are perfect for everyday wear and I actually love dressing them up with silk blouses, blazers and heels.

Coolest outfit you've ever seen on someone else?
Oh my god, I can't even narrow it down. All of the street style photos from NYFW have me so inspired! All my fellow bloggers just kill it with unbelievable outfits and style everyday.

Admit it—we all have those "running to the grocery store" outfits! What does yours look like?
Oh dear, I do love my sweats. I love to be cozy and comfy, so sweatpants with an oversized concert tee, a hoodie and my Nike Frees is probably my go-to grocery store outfit.

Are there a few websites or stores you constantly find yourself shopping at?
Of course there are! For bloggers, fashion-obsessed shopping online is pretty much in our DNA! A couple of my favorites include Sole Struck, Nastygal, Pixie Market, I Don't Like Mondays… the list goes on and on.

Do you have a style icon?
The Olsens, Kate Moss and my mom!

Any fall trend predictions?
Prints on prints and layers of different fabrics all mixed together. All paired with some really casual detailed sneakers.

We're always on the search for new bloggers who think outside the box. Think you could be our next Blogger of the Week? Share a link to your blog in the comments below and we might be in touch.

I think you style is very relaxed beachy. I am surprised that you into the Olsen, the Olsens are very couture and refined. Yes I see that you love cut-off, again very beach relaxed. I am also excited about the print trend this fall. Can't wait to see you interrupt fall trends.
