I spied April at the most recent Memphis Rock 'n' Romp
event at Rhodes College. April is a hairstylist at Igor Bosin Salon
and a pretty hip mom.
The Look: The "active yet stylish mom dressed to survive the heat and the kids" is probably one of the hardest looks to achieve, but April pulls it off effortlessly. Once again the secret is in the details: A classic t-shirt and shorts are a neutral base on which she layers personality through pops of color and accessories. What first caught my attention were the unique handmade leather earrings she bought from a local designer. (She couldn't remember the designer, but if you know who it is or if you are the designer, let me know so I can snag a pair.)
When asked to define her style, April said succinctly, "Vintage hippie." She likes to shop "everywhere, but the most recent local shop I visited was the Trolley Stop Market. I bought my daughter a dress there."
