She's modeling all her affordable faves from T.J.Maxx.
Once you've hit play (and started your inevitable wish list), stay tuned for more style secrets from Martino in her upcoming interview and photo shoot for The List — with tips that range from how to wear daring prints to a wedding to pulling off a retro swimsuit, this is the kind of outfit genius you don't wanna miss.
