Hi! Welcome back to Wear is She Wednesdays, a series that highlights one special girl each week to let her shine! Every Wednesday, we feature a different “she,” and get the scoop on her style, what makes her tick, and how the heck we can learn to be as awesome as she is. Today we’re asking the question everyone wants to know… Wear is Jennifer Scott?
WEAR IS… JENNIFER SCOTT?
Janis Joplin style sunglasses. A bib inspired blouse. A pair of well loved painter’s pants. These are just a handful of the gems you’ll find in Jennifer Scott’s wardrobe. As a woman unafraid to mix careers, she similarly, (and expertly), blends a variety of clothing styles into one killer look all her own.
However, don’t stop at falling for her eclectic outfits or her breezy haircut or her interior design skills. There’s so much about her to be inspired by, so keep reading for her thoughts on Copenhagen fashion week, cowhide clogs and Reiki.
Hi Jennifer! Please introduce your wonderful self!
Hello! My name is Jennifer Scott, however I go by Jenn! I am a Michigan native, yet found myself here in KC about 6 years ago. I went to school for interior design in both Chicago and Grand Rapids but dropped out and started working for an architecture firm instead. Most of my working career has been spent in the design, fashion, retail or restaurant world. Currently, I work for an outdoor furniture company called Yardbird full time, but I do freelance work as an editorial & commercial wardrobe stylist also.
1. How would you describe your style?
I like to think my style is effortless and approachable, but also a bit ethereal and feminine. I am drawn to outfits that feel easy and somewhat unexpected, ie: pairing feminine prairie with utilitarian or military. and I am a neutrals girl through and through …no bold and bright here!!
2. Who or what are your current biggest style inspirations?
I will never tire of looking to the Olsen’s or Copenhagen fashion week street style for ideas. And then of course Instagram, which is an endless supply of inspiration right at our fingertips (and too many accounts to name). I love following along with Reese & Molly Blutstein (@accidentalinfluencer , @double3xposure) and Elizabeth Cardinal (@elizcardinal) specifically when I need to think outside the box.
3. How did you discover your personal style or are you still discovering it?
I think our personal style is ever-evolving! I do believe the older I get, the more developed my style has become. My 30’s especially have been about consciously choosing clothing and doing so in a way that feels entirely and authentically me. I think that is most important to remember, no matter what you call “personal style.”
4. What’s on your thrift list right now?
Cream or white overalls, a knit midi skirt, cowhide clogs, antique Edwardian and Victorian pieces, white cowboy boots, midi dresses in cotton or linen, gingham anything, 2 piece sets, vintage fabrics and antique quilts.
5. Where would you do on your ultimate dream vacation?
Too many places on that list but I have wanted to go to Spain and Portugal for the longest time, since high school. I think that is where I would go first!
6. And the bonus question I like to ask everyone before they go: what’s something you’re really proud of right now?
