What’s your Minnetonka story?
I’ve always loved moccasins, but my boyfriend had a pair before I did – he got me hooked! He bought me my first pair (Back Zipper Boot) as a birthday gift, and since then, they’ve become a closet staple that I take everywhere with me. Now I have several pairs. It’s getting a little out of hand, but I love them.
If you could describe your style in one word or phrase what would it be?
Comfortable basics with a bohemian twist
Who’s style inspires you?
Kate Moss, Erin Wasson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – Basically I love the whole model-off-duty thing. I also love Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens – they embody bohemian chic in a fun and relatable way.
What song do you currently have on repeat?
I’m a huge American Idol fan, so Phillip Phillips’ “Home” is a current favorite. I’m also loving “Ghosts” by Thick As Thieves. If you haven’t checked them out, you definitely should.
What’s on your summer reading list?
I’m currently finishing up “Chasing Harry Winston” by Lauren Weisberger. (After reading “Everyone Worth Knowing”, I figured I’d just read all of her books, and I haven’t been disappointed.) When I’m done, I’m thinking about boarding “The Hunger Games” train, but I feel a little late to the party.
What is your favorite summer destination?
I’m from Louisiana, so I try to get there every summer despite the heat. You really can’t beat a few days in the South. (Except, of course, if you’re worried about your diet.) Otherwise, anywhere with a beach is fine by me.
My Minnetonka must-have item is…
My black Woodstock boots! I definitely bring those everywhere I go.
