Q: Describe your personal style in three words
MK: Malibu meets Soho
Q: Where do you get style inspiration?
MK: I love to get inspiration from social media, @thefashionambitionist is one of my favorite accounts… she has a classic, but fun style. I also look at a lot of magazines and fashion sites, Harper’s Bazaar and the The Coveteur are my go-to’s. But, really I get inspired anywhere… random street style pics or celeb style from anyone like Miley to SJP.
Q: What is your favorite splurge-worthy item?
MK: Definitely bags – they’re a great investment piece you will have forever!
Q: Which trend are you most excited about this season?
MK: You can never have too many blazers and I can’t wait to wear mine all throughout the spring. I also will be wearing (and buying!) more hot pink and rainbow pieces–I love a pop of color! The vintage-inspired denim trend is one I never want to end…Levi’s 501 are amazing.
Q: What are you favorite stores and brands to shop?
MK: I shop a lot online and am always looking at Shopbop, it’s one of my favorites. I’m pretty versatile with stores though… I love pieces from Intermix and Barney’s, but also find the most amazing things at Zara! My favorite brands right now are Zadig & Voltaire, Golden Goose, Gucci… and Spiritual Gangster for cute yoga clothes and comfy pieces.
Q: What piece is currently your favorite in your closet?
MK: My Aquazzura hot pink pumps–they are such a great way to dress up a look and add a pop of color!
Q: What pieces are you most drawn to when shopping?
MK: I’m mostly drawn to classic silhouettes that I can mix with other pieces, but I also love color or a funky pattern. I really like to mix staples with special pieces so that each outfit is unique.
Q: Jeans or Sweats?
Q: Heels or Flats?
MK: Flats, I love Sneakers!
Q: Bags or Shoes?
Q: Girly or Edgy?
MK: Both, depends on the day!
Q: Mixed Patterns or All-Black?
MK: Definitely mixed patterns, it’s more fun!
Q: Underdressed or Overdressed?
MK: Overdressed! My Grandma Sallie always says “it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed!”
