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. I’d been looking in my closet stumped at what to wear, and feeling I had either “outgrown” some of its contents, or no longer had the lifestyle or career setting where much of […]

My 2020 Home Goals

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 […]

  I’ve been trying to absorb and breathe in this transition from 2019 to 2020, to take a real pause and reflect. Turning the page on a decade brings a sense of gravitas to the new year — both in looking back and trying to look forward. Ten years ago, college had barely just ended, […]

With Thanksgiving being so late this year, we are catapulting towards the holidays faster than ever, which means it’s crunch time for getting those closest to you the gifts they deserve to remind them how much they mean to you. I’ve always preferred fewer, but nicer and more luxurious things that make me feel good […]

Happy holiday season, everyone! We’ve reached the time of year that enters warp-speed, where the days feel short, and the gift list gets long. But I think a great way to fight off the stress of the holidays are to lean in and create an oasis at home that pauses to actually celebrate it, to […]

Winter Boots: Round Up & Care Tips

November 17, 2019

Alright, fall is basically over in New England and we have been dumped into winter territory rather abruptly, if you ask me. And since I’ve been on the hunt to replace a couple beaten up pairs of boots from my own wardrobe for the upcoming season, I thought it would be the perfect time to […]

  We are well into fall and the pieces I’ve been adding to my cart all seem to point towards this mix of menswear-inspired workwear with more casual, feminine elements. That balance between masculine/feminine and tailored/casual make this style perfect for both work wear and nights out, and I’m addicted. Scroll below for the pieces […]
