We interviewed nycpretty about her styling background, her best spring break spot and of course... her favorite AE Spring pieces!

What are your fashion inspirations?
I am very a visual person and am inspired by sooo many things on a daily basis...people on the street, movies, magazines, billboards, thrift stores, you name it! Also, I LOVE to surf! The whole surf culture/lifestyle has been a huge inspiration for me.    

How did you get your start as a fashion stylist?
Sesame Street!! They actually used to publish a magazine called Sesame Street Parents Magazine and I was in charge of styling and shopping for all the cute teens and tweens! It was a blast!

What are your favorite Spring items from AE?

What is your favorite fit of AE jeans?
The AE Jegging! I'm OBSESSED! They are super soft and stretchy and look great with almost everything in my closet. I actually bought 3 pairs!

What can you never leave the house without?
My lipgloss! I feel so unglamorous without it! Right now I am loving Sonia Kashuk ultra shine sheerlip gloss. It's the perfect hint of pink!

What is your casual party style?
I always love a fun party dress, but if I want to be somewhat casual I'll pair it with cool rocker boots and lots of studded jewels to funk-ify the look!

Where is your favorite Spring Break Destination?
It doesn't really matter where I go for spring break. As long as I have my surfboard and fun waves, I 'm happy!
