For everyday style inspiration, we need look no further than the NYLON office. This week, we interviewed Katherine Martinez, our Director of E-commerce. A former fashion blogger who lives by the motto "Wear all the things," we chatted up her personal style, the return of the ugly sandal, and the real struggle to get dressed every morning.

What is something that's always in your closet?
Some type of crazy beaded or sequined statement jacket—the kind of jacket that says "I just ran away from the circus."
 
What fashion looks are you excited about for spring?
Super excited about the continuation of the "fashion Teva"—no heels please!
 
Who is your style inspiration? 
Carmen Miranda and all her bright baubles—she was an accessories queen! 
 
What are some of your favorite pieces on the NYLON shop right now?
Samii Ryan's Third Eye hoops. Also, all of Poppy Lissman's statement clutchesMajor eye candy.
 
What colors are always present in your wardrobe?  
Black, white, burnt orange, and cerulean blue. The last two complement my summer skin tone (although right now I'm kind of a ghost).
 
Do you have a specific routine for getting dressed in the morning?
Step 1: Mentally plan perfect outfit.
Step 2: Look in laundry basket and realize 2/3 of said outfit is currently unwearable.
Step 3: Pull one of a myriad of offensive graphic tees from my shelf and layer under a chunky necklace.
Step 4: Beanie, oversized coat, repeat.
 
What is your favorite thing about working for the NYLON shop?
All the incredible brands we get to work with! It's like we have 300 friends we get talk to on a daily basis. Friends that make really cool s**t.
