Which three words best describe your style? Happy, colorful, feminine.
Who’s your favorite style icon? My grandmother (Lola). She made her own clothes and didn’t care what other people thought about them. And she gave me leopard-print lingerie for my bridal shower and said, “People think grandmas are old-fashioned. Not me, I’m not old-fashioned!”
What’s your best style advice? Wear what makes you feel happy.
What article of clothing/accessory would you not want to live without? A dress that moves with you and can be worn day-to-night.
Which trend would you want to see make a comeback? Poet blouse, modernized, with ruffles and pastel colors.
What should NEVER make a comeback? Bowl haircuts (I had one once – not by choice!)
What fashion/style did you love at the time, but now cringe when you see old photos? Perm. Oh, and jelly shoes (ouch, not comfy)
What’s your best working mom style secret? Getting ready with my hair twisted in a bun creates instant waves and volume is my favorite style hack.
Stilettos or flats (or Tom's)? Stylish flats.

What’s been your best family vacation? Road trips visiting friends and family along the way.

Best parenting advice: We’re not here to mold our kids as parents. We’re here to help them maintain the love for themselves that they were born with, regardless of the situation, so that they can be comfortable being themselves as they grow up.
Parenting true confession: My kids call me out on things all the time. They made a rule: no politics at dinner-time.

If you could pick anyone to star as you in a movie based on your life, who would it be? Gemma Chan, the actress in "Crazy, Rich Asians".

What book is by your nightstand? "Infinite Possibilities" by Mike Dooley. The title says it all.
What song would you dance to when nobody’s watching? Uptown Funk. You’re all invited to a virtual dance party!
If you could go shopping with anyone from history, living or deceased, who would it be? Anna Kendrick, because how much fun would that be? She’s got a happy, effortless style, and is hilarious. It’s not just the clothes you wear, it’s the person’s charisma that helps bring the look to life.
What’s at the top of your travel bucket list? Rafting through the Grand Canyon together when the kids are a little older.
What’s your favorite way to unwind at the end of a long day? Meditating – so I can listen to inner guidance.
