Retail Therapy with Net-A-Porter

June 17, 2020

  There is a lot going on, a lot to process, and many things racing through my mind these days that are way more important than clothing and shopping. I do hope to share more of my thoughts, hopes, and actions, but also am taking a beat to churn it all over in mind, have […]

  How are we? Like many of you, I’ve been taking time to try to listen, learn, and reflect over the past week. So many senseless tragedies have come to a head and resulted in a much needed public outcry for action. I’ve been sitting in a lot of sadness, shame, anger, frustration, and exhaustion […]

Loving Lately: Sleeper

May 28, 2020

All this time at home has sent me down some deep rabbit holes on interior design and style inspo, including this new-to-me designer: Sleeper. Many of you who follow along on my IG Stories know that Sweet Home Alabama is one of my favorite movies, and that I’ve been on a lifelong hunt for a […]

  Ah, my official warm-weather cocktail: the Aperol Spritz. Fruity, bittersweet, and sparkling, this is my summer go-to. They are simple to make at home, which I do often, and I was surprised by how many of you were asking for the recipe! I don’t really stray from the classic recipe, but this one is […]

    “Do you have any suggestions for sustainable clothing brands besides Everlane that are still somewhat affordable?” —Brianna     I’ve been loving the questions that have been sliding into my DMs, and here we are with another once I’m excited to post about! Everlane has become a go-to name, and I share what […]

  “Hi Mary, I hope you’re staying safe! I am searching for stationery and want to see if you have any favorites? I want to send thank you cards. Do you have anything you swear by or enjoy?” —Ellen P.     First of all, I’m genuinely honored that you guys value and trust my […]

Fresh Linens for Spring

May 2, 2020

Featured linens were kindly gifted from Garnet Hill.  As a company focused on quality and sustainability, I am proud to routinely partner with Garnet Hill.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.   Spring is my love language: longer, sunnier days, flowers starting to bloom, and abundant beams of sunlight flooding the home truly make […]

A few weeks into quarantining, and I’ve become all the more appreciative of the little indulgences at home that make this time indoors feel serene and welcoming instead of stuffy and monotonous. Fresh blooms and lit candles always elevate the everyday for me, and I wanted to share some of my ultimate favorites! Bonus: many […]

Sale Selects!

March 21, 2020

How is everyone doing? It’s been a crazy week and things escalated rapidly, with our day-to-day lives changing pretty drastically. We are all dealing with (and affected by) this crisis differently and I am doing my best to maintain positivity, a semblance of normalcy, and to find a new balance in simplicity with these changing […]
