What do you love about the linen trend? I love how breathable linen is! It really is the perfect material for the warmer weather.

How do you mix your own personal fashion into workwear? I often incorporate blush and beige tones into workwear. For example,  instead of a typical blazer, I will wear a blush tone duster jacket.

What tips do you have to make workwear trendy? I think incorporating a trendy piece into workwear is the best way to go about it! Start off with a polished office look and then add a cool necklace, belt, or cardigan.

What’s your best ‘woke up late, and need to be dressed in 5 minutes‘ outfit? This happens to me all the time! I would go with a dress and a cardigan or blazer on top. A dress is the best because you don’t have to worry about matching your top to your pants!

What piece of clothing has endless styling possibilities for you? Definitely a blazer! Depending on what you pair the blazer with, it can be dressed up or down.
