Katie Traina moved back to her hometown of San Francisco from Los Angeles in 2009, with her husband Todd Traina (also a native), and their daughter Daisy. Her look is fresh– a mix of New York chic and Los Angeles casual. When it come to fashion rules, Katie says she follows two: one, she must be comfortable, and two, feel like herself in everything she wears. As far as makeup, she says less is more, and a ponytail is one of her favorite go-to hairstyles.
