We have a new intern here at Ashbury Skies! We tapped Caitlin, fresh from Colorado State, to help us out this Fall. She is full of innovative ideas and entrepreneurial spirit and she is the perfect compliment to our Ashbury Skies team. She will be posting about her job, discovering San Francisco and her personal style. We sat down and talked with her about her journey to San Francisco, her favorite shoes on Ashbury Skies and what she can’t live with out. Take a read:
Why did you journey West?
I stayed close to home for college, so I knew I would have to get out of Colorado eventually. I was deciding between LA, NYC, or SF. San Francisco stood out to me in so many ways. I love how the many different neighborhoods evolve with every step you take. There is so much character and culture on every street that you can find something new and inspiring every day.
What did you study in college?
I majored in Fashion Merchandising and minored with a Business Management degree at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. CSU's Design and Merchandising program was incredible.
What do you want to do when you grow up?
I'd like to be apart of something big, something that has a lot of meaning to it. I won't allow myself to do anything I'm not passionate about so I have a feeling everything will fall into place with time.

In life I am most inspired by:
Music, the outdoors, and album covers.
At the moment, I am obsessed with:

If I could go back in time and bring back one trend it would be:
I think we're in luck because not only are high waisted shorts in style, but full on mom flare jeans are making a major come back. Thank god for jellies, overalls, and high waisted everything. I love the 90's.
On Friday nights I:
You can find me out (attempting to) dance with friends, trying new restaurants, or at a show.
What is your form of caffeine?
Coffee in the morning, green tea in the afternoon.
