What three words best describe your style?

Casual, comfortable-soft, colorful.

My idea of a perfect day is. . . ?

Fresh cool air with sunshine and hopefully, wildflowers. Somewhere in the mountains (hills), with someone special – and maybe my dog.

Who has most inspired your fashion sense?

My own style has evolved over years but has always been a casual, comfortable, somewhat classic look.

What one fashion rule do you always abide by?

Comfort first!

The biggest fashion faux pas (mistake) I ever made was. . .

Not checking my makeup in the proper light and having too much on! I am very minimalist anyway, but lights can be deceiving at times.

What article of clothing is at the top of your shopping list?

Navy wool blazer with classic style.

Describe what’s in your travel bag.

Jeans, soft pullover and loose fitting sweater or jacket…maybe boots if in cool weather

Pretty is as pretty does, from my mother.

True Love/Shalimar

How do you unwind?

Working in my garden or catching up with friends.

Where is your favorite place to travel?

Europe or the hills of Tennessee or NC in the fall.

Do you have a passion project or hobby?

Many – photography, gardening, cooking, travel, spending time with good friends or family.

Describe the most memorable gift you’ve ever received.

My daughter

How has your style evolved over the years?

It has become more casual. It was more precise and “dressy” when I was young but more easy going now.

One item I never leave the house without. . .

A jacket or some light weight coverup – you never know when some places will be too cool.

Quote to live by?

“He who gives, gathers.”

What is your favorite Soft Surroundings product?
