Tell us about your personal style?
It depends on the day and my mood but I guess it always veers towards preppy eclectic. I like incorporating classic pieces with offbeat jackets and accessories.

How do you usually put together an outfit for the day?
Before, I would check the weather and my activities planned for the day. If I have a dinner at the end of the day with absolutely no chance of changing I bring heels and an extra set of accessories in the car. Now that I'm pregnant, I make sure all my clothes are easy and comfortable. I just up the style factor by donning pretty accessories or printed jackets.

How do you make sure your look is not over the top?
We have a huge mirror right by our door so I take one quick glance and usually remove one item.

Where do you usually shop?
I shop everywhere! I love SM Department Store and Kultura for inexpensive yet interesting baubles. Local: Bayo, Bench, Plains & Prints, and The Ramp. Foreign: H&M, Zara, Topshop, Forever 21 and factory outlets!

What are your closet staples?
Striped tees, boyfriend jeans, statement jackets and button downs. I also have an insane collection of scarves.

Are you more of a shoe or bag person?
I used to say shoes, but now I'm beginning to have a new appreciation for bags.

What's on your summer list?
New sunnies and pretty, colorful and lightweight kaftans.

What gift would you love to receive on mother's day?
I can officially celebrate Mother's Day next year! But I would absolutely love to receive Joyce Makitalo's Channad Fringe Bib. So gorgeous!

Tell us about your outfit?
I would wear this outfit on a date with my husband. I still make an effort to look good even if we're just catching dinner and a movie. I'm obsessed with this leopard cape from Supre. I got it from a recent trip. I love that its super versatile. Looks cute over a simple tee, or wear it over a bikini or long evening dress. I'm also pretty attached to this Joyce Makitalo Rondel Subo (Vogue) ring. I bought it to commemorate my first pregnancy.
