What are you wearing? Dress from SheCloth, shoes from Nord­strom, vintage ’50s bag from my great-aunt from Saks 5th Avenue.

Describe your style: My style changes with my moods. I’m most comfortable in a girlie glam look with high heels and feminine dress, but my daily role as a mom of three young kids doesn’t always allow for that. My daytime look usually consists of layered scarves and jewelry from our shop, a pair of skinnies and my favorite pair of Converse Chucks.

How do you start prepping for beach season? I buy hats. Whether it’s a baseball cap or a wide-brimmed one, hats are my favorite item to wear all summer long to keep those harmful rays off my sensitive skin.
