What year are you?
I’m a sophomore.
Where are you from?
I’m from Ashland, a small town in Southern Oregon. It’s five hours north of San Francisco, five hours south of Portland. I grew up riding horses, harvesting honey and playing roller hockey on my family’s ranch.
What are you studying?
I say my concentration is writing and digital media, but somehow I’m taking all literature classes this semester. My favorite class at the moment is Just Balzac, with Angela Moger.
I love the simplicity of Alexa Chung’s style and anything by Bottega Veneta (not that I own any of their pieces, I just lust over them). My dad also has great taste; all my sweaters come from his closet.
What do you listen to when you get dressed?
Lately I’ve been listening to Childish Gambino’s new album, Camp. I also love Florence + The Machine’s Ceremonials. Anything that inspires me to spring forth from my bedroom and conquer is usually a good bet.
Something you would NEVER wear?
Crocs. I can’t believe they have entire stores for croc accessories. They’re called “schnoodles” or some other equally disgusting “catchy” name. I never want Mickey Mouse’s face stuck in the holes of my shoes.
On a daily basis, I keep in touch with The Faster Times, The New York Egotist (full disclosure: I work for them) and Gawker. I also love FastCo Design for aesthetically pleasing tech updates. Fashion-wise, I read Elle, Nylon and Interview.
What do you do when you feel like you have “nothing to wear”?
Honestly, I put on an oversized sweater, skinny jeans and my riding boots. If I’m dressing for a party, I turn the music up and test outfits until something clicks.
