Hey, everyone! I’m Cara, and I am thrilled to be interning for Local Hem this summer!
I am a Senior at Skidmore College, where I study Gender Studies and Sociology. I am from Boston, Massachusetts. I have spent the last year working at featured boutique Encounter, as a sales associate. I love fashion, writing, social media and yoga. After college, I have dreams of traveling.
Being from New England, I will always be a prep at heart. However, since immersing myself into the fashion world and working at Encounter, I try to dress pretty trendy. Some of my favorite blogger styles are Pink Peonies, Cupcakes and Cashmere and Atlantic-Pacific. My favorite designers are Rebecca Taylor and Diane von Furstenberg.
My favorite boutiques in Saratoga Spring, NY (where I go to school) are Encounter (of course!), Piper, Lucia and Saratoga Sundress. My favorite hometown boutiques in Boston include National Jean Company, French Lessons, Second Time Around (for great consignment pieces), LF, Mint Julep and Moxie.
Local Hem Wish List:
The Gretchen Scott embroidered tunic, JoJo Bling earrings and BB Dakota Macyn Lacy skirt speak to my preppy side. I would match the skirt up with a denim shirt for a contrast to its feminine look. The tunic is perfect for a week at the Cape (where I love to spend my vacation time). I love the retro feel of the Elizabeth and James Benedict sunglasses. I saw Taylor Swift sporting them with red lipstick and she looked fabulous! I love the colored and printed jeans trend, and love this pair from Current/Elliot. The Splendid ruched racerback dress is a great casual piece. Splendid always has super soft fabric. And then, you can never go wrong with DVF! This dress is the perfect summer piece, as it is so light.
