"I tend to lean toward neutrals, but there’s nothing quite like bright, bold colors to add some fun to your closet. Pair with your favorite neutral shoes and accessories for a fun, fresh look. I’ve been on a mission to add more brights into my wardrobe and will be wearing them out on the town on both coasts."

"Slip dresses are my go-to because they are a super versatile style and can be dressed up or down. Pair with sneakers and a crossbody bag for day, and put on a pair of heels and a leather jacket for night. I also like to wear a chunky sweater over them for cooler days."
