Style Profile: Fashion buyer chooses simple, subtle style
The 31-year-old women’s swimwear and outerwear buyer for Scheels All Sports fancies classic silhouettes and funky details.
I spotted Baumgartner on a coffee break wearing a cozy ensemble that showcased her affinity for feel-good fabrics that fit just right.
Describe your style. I go for classic pieces with a twist.
What are you wearing today? Sanctuary dress, Element cardigan, Threads for Thought leggings and UGG leather boots and bag, all from Scheels.
What inspires your style? Pinterest. I also follow InStyle magazine on Instagram.
Who’re style icons? Jackie O (Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis) for being so girly-pretty and classic, and Sarah Jessica Parker. My boyfriend gave me a Carrie necklace for Christmas – just like the one Sarah Jessica wears as Carrie on “Sex and the City.”
Where do you shop? Scheels, Anthropologie and any little boutiques where I can find one-of-a-kind things.
What’s your latest splurge? I ordered some Tory Burch boots.
What’s your style philosophy? Quality over quantity, and it has to fit me right.
What’s your favorite trend right now? I like the retro influences – anything “Mad Men.”
Did you make a New Year’s resolution? I’m going to clean out my closet and take 30 days to think about any major purchases.
