When Melissa Ryan Hillman first bought this pair of light brown boots, her husband asked if she would really wear them…
THAT WAS SEVEN YEARS AGO!
After all, she purchased them to go with a specific outfit at the time. She was wearing them when I asked her to be this week’s GURU Style Star. When I spotted Melissa in the mall, the fun pattern play with her striped dress and bright scarf caught my attention. Her dress, scarf and belt are all Gap scores!
How would you describe your style?
I feel like I’m boho-chic. I definitely like Free People and that kind of brand.
What are your favorite stores at Towson Town Center?
Nordstrom, just because you can get everything you need. I do love Gap. You can find pieces there that you can play up and play down. My new favorite store is Express. I haven’t shopped there for years. The prices are great. I got three blazers there. I love them for work and casual.
What fall trends are you most excited about?
I love all the boots! Hunter boots with a cute outfit. You can’t go wrong with boots. I’m obsessed.
Who are your style icons?
I like Kate Hudson. I think she has cool style. I love the sophistication of Kate Beckinsale…
Any items in your closet that you can’t live without?
My jeans. They are comfortable. I have my two favorite pairs, even though I have 12. You can do anything with jeans!
