My Style: Cassie Jensen, Data Analytics and Special Projects Coordinator at Planned Parenthood
Describe your personal style. I had an awesome co-worker who wore what I deemed ridiculous outfits. When I finally asked him about his endless collection of wolf shirts, he explained that the happiest times he had as a kid were playing dress-up. I realized then that taking my fashion too seriously was silly, and it’s much more fun to figure out the theme of your day and go for it. I would love to say my style is always “hard-hitting business woman” or “30-and-flirty fashionista,” but sometimes it’s just survival of the Mondays.
What’s your most recent fashion obsession? Tights. They add texture, style and fun to even the simplest outfits.
What item from your closet can you not live without? A solid pair of Levi’s jeans. I’m currently into the boyfriend skinny—although I wish I could change the style name. Really hoping for a return of bootcut, though.
What are your top three style essentials? A good haircut (I see Morgan Erhard at Loft Studios Salon & Spa in Maplewood), my Levi’s and a set of “confidence earrings.” Mine belonged to my mother, and I wear them when I have big meetings or presentations.
What is your go-to piece? My go-to piece for fall is a Southwestern-print sweater. I’m happy every time I wrap myself in it. It allows me to feel fashionable and be in a robe all at once.
Who are some of your favorite designers? Locally, I love Jennifer Walker Jewelry, and I am really into this stand at the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market that sells kale as well as remastered vintage pieces.
