Name: Kelsey Peoples.
Spotted at: 16th and Arapahoe.
Profession: I'm an oil and gas lease analyst.
Favorite film: The new Great Gatsby film is really in-your-face, and I loved it. It was very over-the-top and entertaining.
2013 jam: Lana Del Rey's "Blue Jeans."
Style inspirations/icons: Anything classic and timeless. Audrey Hepburn has iconic style.
Favorite accessory: I wear a lot of cuffs. I have an old Spanish coin I wear all the time, too. Anything that is handmade, I love.
Favorite color: Anything jewel-tone, but I love sapphire.
Style mantra: If it feels good, wear it.
Shops at: For work clothes, I shop at Banana Republic, anywhere that has that classic work attire. Clothes can come from anywhere, as long as I like them. A website I shop often is hautlook.com for fun clothes.
This cuff is one of Peoples's favorite accessories. Peoples has observed, "Denver is different than Texas. I always hear that Texas girls take more time getting ready, and I like to take the time and dress up, too. But at the same time I won't wear six-inch heels if I'm going to be walking around all day." These nude high heels feature a black heel, which is a variant on a new classic: the nude pump. This color, especially in ladies footwear, is a Denver trend for the spring. Here, the shoes match her nude purse and energetic yellow skirt.
Style analysis: Peoples maintains her southern belle heritage while revising it to meet her comfort standards. Her dress and high heels are both classic staples of womenswear, yet she tops both with a blue denim jacket, adding an air of causal elegance to the look and referencing her 2013 jam by Del Rey.
