Inside My Closet



What do you do during the day?
I am an actor/model with Exposure Model and Talent Agency. I am also a distributor for It Works, but most importantly, I am a mom! I have a beautiful 9-month-old baby girl named June.

What are you wearing?
I am wearing a pink Free People sweater, black pants from Sitzmark and black boots with studs on the back from Macy’s.

Why do you love this outfit?
I love sweaters and the color pink! I also love these pants because they are very comfortable and move with me ... they never get baggy. I can wear them with anything.

How did this closet evolve?
I have always been a city girl, but it was my husband’s dream to move to the country and raise grass-fed cattle. He said he would do anything to get me to move out there. So I said, “build me a really big closet” ... and he did!

What do you like most about your closet?
I love my shoe bar. I love having all my shoes out where I can see them.

Tell me about your shoe bar?
It’s custom-made with adjustable shelves perfect for arranging and displaying all my shoes.

When the day calls for helping with baby calves or cattle, what clothing do you reach for?
Usually a pair of jeans and cowboy boots.

What does your “city self” like to wear?
Leggings, cute tops — I love to layer — and boots!

How would you describe your shoe collection?
Very broad. I have expensive shoes like Donald Pliner and Manolos to everyday affordable shoes that I find at Target. I have tons of boots — those are my favorite.

Where are your most favorite places to shop?
Ambiance, Frankie and Jules, Two Chic and Von Maur.

What advantages does boutique-shopping offer you?
I love shopping at boutiques because you get an intimate shopping experience and I can bring June Bug with me!
