Mary, style maven of the blog Sportsanista, is a self-admitted “thirty-something fashion fiend” with a love for both fashion and sports; she has been blogging since 2011 and calls Chicago home. Recently she took a trip to San Fran and sported the Praline espadrille wedge for a little wine tasting – see her look and a few of her answers to our questions below.
Who or what is your fashion inspiration? Mira Duma is a fashion icon – she is a trendsetter of our generation. I love following her on social media and trying to emulate her looks with things I own.
What style rule is made to be broken (and why)? Rule: No white after labor day. White is such a clean / crisp color that we should never limit it to three months out of the year. I much prefer to wear whites in the winter to break-up all the black I wear!
Name 3 things you cannot live without: Mascara, a good pair of distressed denim pants and a white collared boyfriend button-up.
Favorite vacation spot? Paris! I love the romance, the lights, the history and the charming streets. The city and its neighborhoods are rich with culture, food and fashion – my kind of town!
Who is the most influential woman in your life? My mother – she has taught me to be the strong, poised women I am today. She has bestowed her fashion knowledge on me and has always served as my inspiration.
