'Classic Cousin Street Style' Inspired by Kate

 

Alwaysm: When you get dressed in the morning, do you have a certain ‘look’ that you’re going for?

 Hailey Neds: “My favorite style person is Kate Middleton. So, I like a lot of her stuff. She’s very classic, so I usually have a lot of really classic pieces and then I like to go a bit different with my tops. Like, something on them that makes them a little bit different.”

 Alwaysm: Like polka dots!

 Hailey: “Yeah, like a zipper, and stuff like that. Just different things that kind of stand out. My pants are usually very simple. And I like shoes a lot."

 

Cool. So what is it about Kate Middleton’s style that attracts your eye?

 “I feel like part of it’s that it is really relatable. It’s something I feel like I could go and get at a store. I see a lot of celebrities wearing stuff, and I have no idea where I would buy that from. But with her I feel like I could go and actually pick something out at the store that is similar to what she’s wearing. I’m not super creative when it comes to wearing clothes, so I want something classic.”

 So then, do you feel like that classic style represents your personality?

 “Yeah. Because I’m not, like, super crazy or over the top.”

 So she says….

*laughter*

 “Yeah, so usually I just go with basics in clothes.”

 So , if you had the opportunity to change your style, you wouldn’t. You like your style.

 “Right.”

 When did you realize that was your style?

 “Umm, I don’t know. Probably in the last few years. I’ve never been somebody who really liked trends. If I like it I’ll wear it, but I just kind of wear what I like. I have always been like that.”

 Cool. So if someone were to ask you to describe your style, would you have an answer?

 “Not really. Mostly, it’s what’s easy. I don’t like to get super complicated. I like to get a lot of pieces that are basic and mix and match. I need it to be quick because I’m always on-the-go.  I don’t really sit and think about my style a whole lot.”

 Yeah. Do you feel like defining your own style is something that you’d be interested in working toward?

 “Yeah! I’m always down. I love clothes, and I love finding things that go together. I’m not always great at picking things out to that go together, but I enjoy it. I’m really into accessories. Earrings are a big part of what I like to wear.

 Sweet. Last question. How do you feel about Napoleon Dynamite’s style?

*laughs* I have a Vote for Pedro shirt. 

 I’m voting for Pedro this year. He’s our only hope.

 “Help us, Pedro! You’re our only hope!”

*laughter*
