Style Spotlight | Mary Ernst McColgan

This Friday, our Style Spotlight features the adorable Mary Ernst McColgan, owner of the equally adorable Rose Bredl shop located in the Short North.

Mary’s style has a preppy-earthy vibe to it that we love. It completely suits her sunny personality and life that consists of running the day-to-day of her flower & garden shop in town, while simultaneously curating floral arrangements for many high end weddings and events. Mary has this uncanny ability to look absolutely perfect in an outfit consisting of a pair of her husbands old jeans rolled at the ankle with a slightly baggy cable knit sweater with a smidge of ruffled blouse peeking out from underneath and some fantastic broken in loafers. She truly encapsulates the vibe we all try to pull off – effortlessly casual, yet completely put together. And it’s totally her. She rocks her style with her own personal branded spin on current trends. That’s why we adore her and why she is this week’s Style Spotlight!
