Personal style: While I love a bohemian, effortless look, I often throw in a little edge to every outfit selection.

Style icons: Rachel Zoe has been my style muse since the ’90s. I love her chic, iconic, bohemian look. I also love Nicole Richie’s flair for the trendy bohemian vibe.

Summer fashions she’s wearing: Flatforms, mules and an updated gladiator are my shoes of choice. For clothing, I love flowy dresses with cutouts and asymmetrical hemlines. A crop top paired with a high-waisted midi skirt is also one of my favorite summer looks.

Favorite designers: Self-Portrait, for their extraordinary fabrications, cutouts, silhouettes and ahead-of-the-curve designs. For Love & Lemons, for their prints, peekaboo silhouettes, crop top/midi skirt combos, lacy bralettes, and oversized chunky knits. I’ve recently fallen for Second Skin Overalls and will definitely wear them into the fall/winter months.

Go-to casual look: A pair of cutoffs, a graphic T-shirt, and a low-profile gladiator. The antithesis of that would be a billowy, comfortable dress with my Ancient Greek Sandals.

Go-to look for a night out: Definitely a lightweight dress. This season, cutouts are still going strong, and I love everything about mixing in a little bit of skin.

Favorite splurge: Shoes. Finishing your outfit with a good shoe elevates your entire look.
