Go White For Summer

"There's nothing I have more of in my closet than little white dresses. They're versatile and elegant, but sexy in a feminine way. And then I'll have a bit more fun with accessories--like a pair of neon sandals."

You Can Never Have Too Many...

"Cardigans. I stock up on them--I own tons. They go great over dresses and help them transition from season to season."

If You're Going to Splurge...

"A timeless piece of jewelry, like pearls or stud earrings, has lasting value. I bought a vintage ring for $600 with my first paycheck; I plan to pass it down to my daughter."

The Hardest-Working Thing You'll Own Is...

"A great pair of flats. I'm always running up and down buildings or around 800-acre properties for work--you can't do that in heels or flip-flops!"

Beauty? Keep It Simple.

"I've been using Purpose face wash since I was 12--it works! And I always swipe my under-eye concealer, which is a shade lighter than my skin, on my top lids so it looks like nude shadow."

Break Away From the Black Suit!

"As I grew more confident professionally, I realized I could express my abilities just as well in a pink suit, or a neutral one worn with a colorful silk cami."
