As I get older, I’m fine tuning the designers I wear. And designer Mara Hoffman is right on top of that list because:

A) Her prints are both innovative and next-level

B) Her breezy silhouettes are perfect for Miami weather (and I rarely need to wear a bra!)

So when given the opportunity to interview Mara this past weekend before her Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim fashion show, I was over the moon because I basically live in her creations. I also stalk her on Instagram LIKE A CREEP and feel like we’re real-world friends — you fellow social media sociopaths can relate, right? RIGHT!!!???

In my mind, I imagine Mara to be eccentric, warm, a little “out there” (as indicative in her prints), well-traveled (she was recently in Guatemala — the muse of her latest collection) and, well, cool.

And she is.

We talked about mommyhood, traveling and our signs — she’s an Aries — and when I asked her what her brand is all about she answered with two bold words: “It’s alive.

Love. Her.
