Biggest personal fashion crime: “Not wearing white before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. Because of our climate, I think it is perfectly OK to bend that rule.”

Celebrity wardrobes you’d love to raid: “Blake Lively, because she always looks very classy.”
Orange tote by Coach and scarf: “My orange tote trimmed in gold by Coach is my purse of choice. Coach makes the most user-friendly purses available. The leopard scarf, which was my mom’s, goes well with it.”
Black and silver sandals: “My black Onex sandals with rhinestones are really comfortable. They have a silvery detail above the cork sole and I can wear them with shorts or a dress.”
Tennis shoes: “I work out at a gym three to four times a week and these are my favorite workout shoes by Asics.”
Boots: “With fall approaching, I will be wearing my Ralph Lauren leather and suede black boots with gold buckles. I wear a lot of skinny jeans — Express is my favorite brand — and leggings with these.”
Miniskirt: “I really like my Ann Taylor miniskirt with the orange, pink, navy and fuchsia pattern that I wear with a navy or white tee.”
Denim jacket: “This Tommy Hilfiger denim jacket goes with so many things. It comes in handy in the fall over white jeans and sundresses when it gets chilly.”
Turquoise jewelry: “I love this green turquoise necklace, bracelet and earrings set that I got while in Santa Fe, N.M. a few years ago.”
