A few months ago, we took to Instagram to ask our readers for pics of their style—their #citizenstyleMSP. Since then we've encountered creative, fashionable people with great things to share. Next up: @queenikathleeni.
Name: Katie Ryan
Hometown: Eagan, Minnesota
Current neighborhood: Golden Valley
You’re an artist! What inspires your work? Fashion bloggers. I also love illustrating looks that are unexpected so anyone who mixes prints in an unexpected way in their everyday wardrobe is an inspiration for my work. Sarah Edwards is a great local example of the sense of personal style I look to when dreaming up illustrations.
Favorite caffeine pick-me-up? Iced Latte at Sparrow Cafe on 50th and Penn.
You’re kind of a jack-of-all trades, doing a little bit of everything. Where do you go to recharge? Thank you!! I go to my farm in Oxford, WI to recharge because it feels so isolated and internet doesn't always work there, so I am able to completely unplug.
To emoji or not to emoji: Emoji, always.
Every woman should own: I think every woman needs an absolutely amazing coat, especially in Minnesota because it's what people see you in.
Describe your style in three words: My style changes on the daily, so this is tough. Leopard and feminine with an edge. Does that count?!
What will get you through this winter? Iced coffee, I'm a true Minnesotan!
A stellar holiday party outfit must include: A red lip.
