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 […]

Summer Classic: Aperol Spritz

May 22, 2020

  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!

The Art of the Letter

  “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 […]

All Aglow: My Favorite Candles

April 5, 2020

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 […]

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 […]

Favorite Boston Shops

March 15, 2020

I’ve been wanting to put this post together for a while, because local shops are a romance that have stolen my heart. Having owned my own in the past obviously paints my perspective, but nothing breaks through the monotony of seeing the same calculated styling and ubiquitous established brands like the breath of fresh air […]

While I definitely subscribe to a curated, quality-over-quantity focused wardrobe, I have to confess that this past year has felt challenging clothing-wise.

January 15, 2020

  A big focus for me at the start of 2020 was creating a detailed budget to better understand where each and every dollar of our paychecks go (and should go) this year. Doing this got me really thinking about the two categories that I most enjoy: interiors and my wardrobe. While I try to […]
