NOT A SPRING FLING SPRING IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES OF YEAR WHERE YOU WANT NEW ITEMS IN YOUR CLOSET. The list of events, parties, trips and fun must-dos are seemingly endless. While it’s fun to emerge from the winter weather and add some pop to your wardrobe, it can be overwhelming. Enter Carson Love. She’s a wardrobe and personal stylist whose goal is to help both genders present and feel like their best selves so they’re ready for whatever life brings them. She customizes the process with each client to create “closet clarity” and newfound confidence. When she’s not working one-on-one with clients, she also styles photo shoots and will happily present to organizations or clubs. Here are three, everyday events styled by Carson using items already in most closets.
