Who are your top badass female role models?
“My Mom: Her life got turned upside down about 11 years ago and I got to watch her discover her strength. Through the unexpected, she learned how tough she is and what she's capable of accomplishing.

“I love the blend of simplicity and sophistication. I've recently been on a mission to declutter our home ... I'm so sick of having so much of everything, clothes included. I truly appreciate having a few classic, beautiful pieces that I can mix and match in my wardrobe.”
