STYLE TIPS

The perfect go-to weekend look is a floral dress with the right layer over top (read: an over-sized denim jacket) and a pair of cool-girl kicks on bottom. If you’re hesitant to wear sneakers with a dress, my advice is to start with a neutral pair, like these white kicks.

THE GRAPHIC TEE

I am all for t-shirts, day or night.

STYLE TIPS

For trans-seasonal weather pair high-waisted, ripped jeans with an on-trend graphic tee. There’s nothing more classic than a jeans-and-T-shirt combo, Inject mega style buy accessorizing with a neck scarf, statement earrings and a killer pair of brogues.

STYLE TIPS

Two piece sets for are my go-to for spring because they are minimal-effort. The key is proportion. I love to style a feminine set with ankle boots to toughen the look up, while still letting it lend to a feminine vibe.
