Featured Item: Highland Shirt

Where are you from?
Austin, TX for the past year, but lived in London at the beginning of the year for two months. Before that, Kansas City was home, go Chiefs!

What’s your favorite Fall 2020 piece?
That is really hard to answer but I think it’s the Highland Shirt because #1 I love plaid, #2 the fringe(!), #3 it can be worn as a shirt or open as a topper, and #4 it will pair back to so many of my past-season pieces! I’m already creating outfits with it before I even have it!

Coffee or Tea?
Coffee all the way!

What’s your favorite beauty product?
I mix high-end and drug store beauty products but I absolutely love Chanel mascara.

How were you introduced to cabi?
Very briefly in 2008 and then I became a true addict every season starting in the Fall of 2013 after attending a show. I was actually a Stylist for three seasons and really loved it.

What do you love most about cabi?
Cabi is for every woman. It works on all shapes and sizes, young and old. Our Instagram page #cabiaddicts features 8 of my dear fabulous friends who are from all walks of life. Different ages and sizes, some career ladies and some are not, and we all share a love of cabi clothing for different reasons. Plus, cabi is serious quality, I have yet to have a piece fail me. And the unique ability to pair past seasons (even WAY past) with current seasons is so incredible and expands my wardrobe pairings exponentially each season!

What do you do to relax?
I love to cook, read, and go hiking in Texas Hill Country. I’ve recently adopted a vegan diet and have made it my mission to prove that plant-based diets can be delicious and gourmet!

What’s your favorite movie?
I’m a sucker for The Notebook, gets me sobbing every time! But I also love a good documentary. Just watched Hillbilly and it was excellent!

What do you always need in your handbag?
Lip gloss/lipstick and breath mints.

What books have you been reading lately?
Currently reading 28 Summers and recently finished The Guest List, The Island of Sea Women, and What Alice Forgot
