she: a girl who loves fashion, food, musicals, puppies, and shoes! he: a boy who loves writing music, playing his guitar, surfing, and weenie dogs! we: like beautiful California, yummy sushi, going on trips, taking photobooth pictures, being silly and being together! We’ve been together since March 2008 and are very much in love.

Have you heard of M Loves M? I stole that introduction right off the front of Mara’s site because it so perfectly introduces this adorable blog! Today’s Friday Guest Blog Interview is all about wardrobe & style, with a blog centered on delicious fashion and a look book so fun to keep up with that I regularly pull tips and tricks from this seriously creative and trendy girl.

I asked Mara to share with us a few of her favorite finds, ideas and tips through PDB’s guest interview series, and she delivered on both the wardrobe and interior design ends. Mara picked out five unique outfits to showcase today as well a few interior vignettes that highlight her love of all things design.

What inspires your design style?

I’d say that I’m constantly inspired by blogs, street style, people watching (a personal favorite), and old movies. It’s hard for me to define my style because I have all these different inspirations. When deciding what to wear though I sometimes have an idea in my head, although it translates differently because of my limited wardrobe. It’s fun to use colors, textures, and moods as starting points though.

What do you love most about what you do?

Right now I’m working part time and blogging part time. I’m still trying to find out what I really want to do. I’d love to combine my interests into a more fulfilling career. I have so many different passions and I can see myself being happy following all of them. It’s just hard to chose which one! Blogging has been the one constant though and I’ve enjoyed writing as an outlet and my outfit posts as an expression of creativity.

What are your favorite design trends?

When it comes to fashion I can’t get enough of the menswear/boyfriend inspired look. I consider myself to be a pretty girly girl but I like wearing oxfords, stripes, baggy shirts and cardigans. I still find something romantic in it! And as for interior design I love all white rooms with splashes of color. I’m excited for when I have my own house one day and I can really get my interior decorating juices going! I also love wood and brick kitchens. I think that rustic look is so comfortable and inviting.

What are three design suggestions that you would like to offer our readers?

{1} Be fearless and adventuress!

{2} Wear what you want to wear, regardless of whether it’s “on trend.”

{3} Everything comes back in style eventually so you can always be a little ahead :)

Thank you so much for inviting me to this series, Morgan! It’s such an honor to be featured on your beautiful blog!

Thank you, Mara!
