Designer Irina McGuire lends her creative skills to St. Jude Children's Hospital full time as their lead web designer and developer, but her eye for design also finds its expression in her personal style. "I tend to go for classical pieces and pair them with quirky accessories," Irina explains as she tugs on her scarf and looks down to her incredibly patterned stockings.
Originally from Kazakhstan, Irina explains her affinity for scarves and unique stockings are a cultural influence. Owning over 20 scarves, she admits a slight obsession but suggests it's the smartest purchase you can make. We both agree that one great scarf can change your whole outfit.
Her chic but cozy outfit is complete with the bright colored coat in an energetic but sophisticated shade of red. Though a young working mom, Irina holds to her love for great style as way to liven her spirits and enjoy being out and on the go.
