Influencer: Meg Schmit

Editor at Providence Monthly

"My personal style is hard to define as it changes as often as my mood or the season. But for the most part, it’s classic with an edge. I sport a lot of pieces with clean lines, but am drawn to fun accessories and bold colors to mix things up. No matter what, I like for my outfit to transition seamlessly from work to dinner date.

Sweater season is my favorite. I’m happiest in a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, booties, and an oversized knit pullover. I’m pretty low maintenance and usually don’t wear much jewelry, but dark-wash jeans are a must! They’re comfortable and sophisticated and can be dressed up or down with the right top or shoe.

On a night out, I level up my look with a chunky heel (not too high because I’m a total klutz), add some waves to my hair, and swipe on a bold shade of lipstick. The base of my wardrobe comes from places such as Target, Old Navy, and H&M, but I love mixing in accessories from Frog & Toad and J. Marcel.

Being an editor at Providence Monthly is my dream job. I fell in love with Rhode Island after one summer and couldn’t wait to come back. It truly is a small state with big personality and I love that I learn more about it through interviewing people for stories or connecting with our great team of writers.

Rhode Island, and specifically Providence, is one of my favorite places. It’s quirky, it’s proud, and it’s changing every day, which is super exciting! Some of my favorite spots are Malted Barley for the pretzels and relaxed vibe, Muse Paint Bar for a crafty girls night, and a walk along South Water Street to admire the city skyline from the pedestrian bridge.

I love fall everywhere, but it’s so special here as the leaves start to change and the temperatures drop. It’s the season of cozy!"
