Hometown:

Tulsa, Oklahoma, but I have lived in Boston for the past 8 years.

Describe your style:

Next Generation Brahmin

How do you translate your look from the workplace to the weekend?

Structured workplace blazers look great over blue jeans and a tee!

What’s in your makeup bag?

Bona Clara skincare, Benefit PosieTint, and Clarins BB Cream

Latest obsession:

Rag & Bone hats and strings of long pearls

Your saved eBay search words:

Cashmere, leather, fur

Who is your style icon?

My Aunt Kay. She always says, “It’s better to be over-dressed than under-dressed.” I couldn’t agree more!

Next on your must-buy list:

Some bright lipsticks to bring color to monochromatic winter outfits.

What’s at the top of your wish list?

Patek Phillipe Twenty watch. It’s effortlessly elegant, timeless, and made to pass on through generations.

 What’s one piece you plan to keep forever?

A vintage mink stole. The former owner had her name embroidered in the lining: Lucky Watson. What a great name! Every time I wear it, I wonder who Lucky was and where she wore that stole.

What can’t you see yourself wearing, ever?

Uggs. No. Just no.

Favorite eBay find ever:

A cream 1950′s vintage wool swing coat lined in silk. It’s so warm and so chic!

You collect…

I don’t think I collect anything! Thought my husband would probably say I have more than enough shoes and books.

Dream getaway:

A river cruise down the Nile.

Song most played on your iPod:

My classic favorites are U2 and Paul Simon. These days, I am also really into Haim.

Favorite city to shop in:

Boston! There are so many wonderful local designers, fashion entrepreneurs and boutiques. Bostonians have a bad rap when it comes to style, but the Hub is actually a very chic city. Take a stroll in the South End and you’ll see all kinds of looks: preppy, hip-hop, rock n’ roll, nerd-chic, brahmin classic, urban sophisticate… and okay, a few Red Sox caps.
