Every week I wander the streets of downtown Grand Forks, looking for stylish men and women to feature in my weekly Street Style profile for the Grand Forks Herald. Once I find people I ask them a little about themselves, grab a photo and do a quick five question style Q&A. So, today, I decided I would answer them myself.
- How would you describe your style?
My style is all about looking cute and feeling comfortable. I like to mix soft solid cotton basics with fun florals and stripes.
- How do you accessorize?
My favorite accessory is definitely shoes. I love to have fun with bold, colorful shoes that have a bit of personality. I also love long necklaces or short pendants, specifically keys, owls and hearts.
- Where do you typically shop for clothes and accessories?
My go-to store is Forever 21. They have such a variety of styles, which I love. I also love Wet Seal and Express. However, all of my favorite pieces are from Plato’s Closet. I can’t pass up a great deal!
- What’s your favorite trend of the summer?
I’m loving the high-low skirts and dresses. I’m also in love with the tanks that tie at the bottom front. They’re so cute!
- What item are you currently craving?
I’m craving some denim! Not jeans, but a denim dress, vest, button down or tank.
Everyone always has a hard time answering the first question, so I’m wondering … how would you, my readers, describe your own personal style?
On another note, I love how shoes can add such versatility to a look. My floral skirt and v-neck look almost sporty casual with my cream oxfords.
Yet, with my brown flats, the look is more business casual. I can’t decide which of the three looks I like best: sandals, oxfords or flats … which is your favorite?
