I am Kira Laws, lifestyle editor, author, CEO, creator, and fashion designer of The Modern Day Cindi. The Modern Day Cindi is about faith, fashion, healthy relationships and professional growth. My platform is to express love, embrace freedom, and empower people to break from ordinary experiences to lead extraordinary lives. My personal style is a mix of classics; I do not subscribe to any particular look. I would consider myself as a street-savvy Jackie O.
My style can be summed up as a fusion of modern luxe meets time-honored glamour. I adore dresses; the variety of styles that emerged between the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s were beautiful! I also love the freedom that the 60's, 70's, and 80's provided with pants and more form fitting clothes. At the end of the day though, I’m urban through and through--
For this edition of Fashion meets Interior Design I selected a bold red room for my style inspiration, recently featured on An Indian Summer blog. Because of the mix of styles, it's no surprise that I would gravitate to the boldness of this room! I absolutely love mixing bold prints and colors in unexpected ways.

I am a fan of this interior design's rich red wall and creative display of beautiful patterns and textures, ranging from polka dots to florals. For my own Indian Summer inspired look, I chose a nude fitted shirt and tailored pants as the landscape for my outfit. I played up the neutral palette by wearing a soft blue open sweater. The subtly of the blue is complemented by the boldness of my red hat and red paisley scarf. The scarf has intricate accents of black, white, and gold, with notes of bronze. I selected an Aztec Indian Necklace to enhance the richness of my look and included the bronze bracelets to balance the paisley scarf and complete the look.

Wardrobe Wisdom for the New Year:
I believe that who you are and what you are about should be recognizable through your outward appearance. Therefore, here's an important piece of wardrobe wisdom for the New Year: Make sure you communicate the right messages through your fashion selections and style. Don’t shy away from style choices just because everyone may not be doing it. Taking chances in your wardrobe can help represent & promote who you are!
