Hi, I’m Claire!
Lover of stripes, pineapples, and anything chocolate!
I grew up just outside of San Francisco, CA and at two years old developed a ‘passion for fashion’ as my mom would tell you. This passion led me to an internship at Nordstrom as a part of their Fashion Ambassador program. If any of you are in high school and are looking for a fashion based internship, I cannot recommend Nordstrom’s program enough. I learned so much and am forever grateful for the experience!
After high school I decided to take a leap of faith and attend Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX. Hands down the greatest decision I have ever made. I love my school, my friends, and most of all Texas! I plan to major in Marketing with a minor in Women and Gender Studies, but don’t worry; my internship with Harper & Tucker (an online boutique based in Newport, which you can check out here and here) keeps me involved in the fashion world!
As you’ll learn very quickly, my wardrobe contains a lot of white, blue, and stripes. And I’m a sucker for anything that contains all of the above! Most days you’ll find me in an oversized t-shirt and running shorts, but this blog is a space for me to share the outfits that make me feel more confident and put together! I hope these posts bring you some inspiration and brighten your day!
In addition to fashion, I’ll be sharing any beauty products, recipes, or workouts that I’m loving! Hopefully I can offer some tips and tricks to the other girls out there who struggle to contour, cook anything other than pasta, and go on a run (I am ALL of these girls, you are not alone!!).
I love to make new friends, so if you have any questions or just want to chat, PLEASE feel free to shoot me an email (email@example.com) or DM me on Instagram (@claire.alison.ruskin).
Thanks for stopping by, I’m so excited to have you here!!
