About Me

My name is Hayleigh & it’s so nice¬†to meet you. ūüôā

This is a place you’ll find timeless fashion that’s a mix of city chic and classically preppy,¬†personable musings, and hopefully a lot of joy.

When I decided to create¬†Young Cosmopolite,¬†I ¬†knew I wanted to reach strong women engaged in the world with a defined style and knack for taste ‚ÄĒ in a word, “cosmopolites.”

I’m a lover of fashion,¬†a curator of cities, and a college student with a lot to learn, and so Young Cosmopolite was born. There’s plenty of¬†surprises in store for you, and again from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Q & A

Where do you go to school?

I attend UC Berkeley, about a 20-minute BART ride (our public transportation — imagine a smaller subway!) from San Francisco. I’m majoring in English and minoring in American history, and this is actually my senior year because I’m graduating a year early!

What do you do in your free time?

When I’m not working on YC ¬†(scouting photoshoot locations, taking photos, writing posts, organizing social media all fill my free minutes), I love experimenting with typography. I also work out regularly (my favorite workouts are spin and HIIT classes!), which is so important just for “me” time. I loveee reading and spending days curled up in coffee shops, going to the theater, and cooking with friends.

Where are you from?

I’m from Southern California in Orange County (See: MTV’s¬†Laguna Beach).¬†Living in the Bay Area is incredible and I pinch myself every day when I see the Golden Gate Bridge walking to class, but I’m planning on heading to the East Coast for law school after undergrad.

What catches your eye when shopping?

Details!!! I love little additions that transform an average piece of clothing into something unique and different. This includes visible stitching, a creative collar, a classic fabric or print, and above all, BOWS — which I also happen to wear in my hair quite frequently. ūüôā
