I have always been an active person. I grew up on a farm in upstate New York and spent most of my days with our two horses, Ryal and Nyzette. My home is a barn that was converted into a house in the 1930's, so you can imagine the amount of work that has gone into fixing and maintaining it. My parents always encouraged outside play and there wasn't a day that I came into the house without a mud splatter up the back of both legs.
I remember my mom saying with a grin on her face, "What planet did you come from?" as I laid out my outfit for the day on the floor: a dress, loads of jewelry, and a pair of boots. I was four.
I love the feeling of not being physically constricted by my clothing and not having to worry about keeping them perfect. Clothing that ages well and can take a hard day are the pieces that tell a story in the end. If I'm gonna go for a walk and play a gig it might as well be done in something pretty.
These Free People ankle boots have become my new go-to shoes. I absolutely love the henna design on them, and comfort wise there is nothing better.
This terracotta shirt achieves what I wish most of my clothing would: it's basic, but it still has some real interest to it that makes you take a second look. Check out all of Free People's gorgeous henley shirts.
The silver maxi, earrings, and pendant are all from a local designer of Indian clothing, Vijaya.
Having real style is doing all the things you want to do in the clothing that you want to wear.
