What’s stylish, redheaded and has one of the cutest puppies we’ve ever seen? Mackenzie Horan is founder of Design Darling, and has long-been a blogger crush of ours. Her site is the perfect reflection of her personal style, which she dubs “casual, classic, with a dash of preppy for good measure” (we concur!). Plus, what’s not to love about a 22-year old girl who keeps a list of 101 things to do in 1,001 days, and actually does them!? Keep reading for her list of must-have style essentials…

{1} Favorite beverage: Hot or cold, I drink a two splenda skinny vanilla latte from Starbucks. Delicious!

{2} Favorite book: I’m reading all six of Jane Austen’s novels as part of my 101 in 1001 list — can’t go wrong with a classic love story!

{3} Favorite scent: Jo Malone’s gardenia candle.

{4} Guilty pleasure: Getting lost in a TV show after the whole season has aired. Downtown Abbey, Girls…

{5} Favorite fashion accessory: Loren Hope’s Dabney necklace is a great statement piece I turn to time and time again.

{6} Always in my closet: oxford shirts in every color and pattern under the sun. Right now I’m having a major gingham moment!

{7} Always in my purse: my Tory Burch wallet — a classic piece I hope I’ll never have to replace!

{8} Style icon: Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific. She always gets it right!

{9} Treasured possession: The monogrammed tray on my desk is one of the first items I bought for my online boutique! I love anything that can be monogrammed or personalized.
