Meet MaryClaire

MaryClaire is a hall-mate and classmate of mine whose style I always admire. She strikes the perfect balance between looking put together and being comfortable! As soon as she walked into class in this outfit, I asked her if she would be willing to be featured on my blog. 

You've seen all those Pinterest recipes that claim to be college-friendly? Check out MaryClaire's blog to see her test out some of those recipes.

What are your favorite stores? 
"I really love Gap for basic staple pieces that can go with anything. I'm obsessed with J.Crew chinos in the summer because they always fit the same way and come in a ton of different colors. I also really like Anthropologie because they tend to have more fun, eclectic pieces."

Who are your favorite designers? 
"I'm a big fan of Diane von Furstenberg. I like how she incorporates patterns and color into her designs, and hopefully one day I will be able to afford one of her flawless wrap dresses."

Where do you find your fashion inspiration? 
"I think I get fashion inspiration from a mix of a lot of things. I love looking at fashion blogs and seeing how different bloggers express their individual styles. I'm also sometimes inspired by random pieces I find. Like, I love going to Goodwill and finding something great for $5 and then figuring out how to create an outfit around it."

What are some of your favorite trends? 
"I'm a big fan of being comfortable, so I'm really excited to start wearing fun skirts and dresses now that it's getting warmer out. I also like boyfriend style button-ups and shirt dresses because they can be really flattering but also really comfortable."
