Daisy - 2Isn’t this daisy necklace sooo summer?! My ‘lil sis sure knows my style ūüôā She got me this necklace in Spain, so every time I wear it I pretend I’m on vacation there. I know it’s a bit silly, but you have to have fun with fashion and have an imagination! Summer style to me, is effortless like this black shift dress and the most comfy espadrilles. Summer is just the greatest.

Meet Mireya, or Mire.¬†Mire is one¬†of my most lively people I know and long time friend. She¬†is so energetic and¬†smiley all the time. Her fun personality shines through her personal style and her creative nail art. Mire is often referred to as Beyonc√© because let’s face it – they could be¬†clones of each other!¬†I also like to refer to¬†Mireya as my personal Chicago¬†insider because she¬†knows all the hotspots¬†and local secrets. Read more about this fashionista below.

5 Minutes With Mireya

HAMR: What is your occupation?
Mireya:¬†Currently I am living life to the fullest.¬†I have worked in Entertainment, in one way or another, for¬†the last nine years. I¬†started off working with the Chicago Cubs, then moved on to work at Live Nation.¬†Sports and music have been a fun and great experience.¬†Now, I am just¬†trying to figure out what I would like to do next.¬†Can’t wait to see what the future holds.
HAMR: Describe your style?
Mireya: I don’t have a set style.¬†You’ll typically find me in dresses and¬†skirts.¬†I’m always comfortable in what I wear though. My style¬†leans towards¬†casual¬†with a bit of glam – Beyonce inspired. I like to take one key piece¬†and make many outfits out of it.
HAMR: What’s your go-to accessory?
Mireya:¬†My go-to accessory¬†is my Michelle watch because I can change the wristband to match any outfit; BUT I love¬†ALL accessories!¬†I often remind myself to, as Coco Chanel put it, “Before you¬†leave the house, look in¬†the¬†mirror and remove one accessory.”¬†
HAMR: What’s in your bag currently?
Mireya: I’m a very organized person.¬†Everything in my purse has a place.¬†First, you’ll find my wallet.¬†This is probably my favorite item.¬†It’s the Chicago flag made out of recycled newspapers from India.¬†I bought it a few years back at¬†Lollapalooza¬†in¬†the “green” area.¬†Then, it’s my Mickey Mouse notepad.¬†Last,¬†but not least is my beauty bag.¬†This has¬†everything and anything… nail file, mints, pens, sharpie,¬†USB drive, bottle opener, hand sanitizer, tissue, lipstick, lip line, lip gloss,¬†chapstick, lotion, lint roller and so much more!¬†
HAMR: What’s your favorite Chicago spot?
Mireya:¬†This is very hard.¬†I¬†love Chicago and have many go-to spots depending on the neighborhood I’m in.¬†Hmmm…¬†For restaurants I have to say that Green Tea will always be my favorite sushi place and¬†Sabatino’s will always be my favorite Italian restaurant.¬†For stores, I like to shop boutiques in Roscoe Village.¬†Aside from that, I enjoy the museums and usually hit¬†them up at least once a year along¬†with Lincoln Park Zoo. Zoo Lights¬†here I come!!!
