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. 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 […]

January Inspiration

January Inspiration Mood Board from Millay Blog

January 6, 2020

  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, […]

  Reflecting back on my style journey, I’ve worked to prune my wardrobe and invest in more refined pieces throughout 2019, selecting better basics to pull my outfits out of my young twenties and into adulthood. Toeing the line of simple but elevated means selecting truly considered pieces. It means seeking and selecting basics that […]

Holiday Gift Guide

December 7, 2019

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 […]

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 […]

Loving Lately

October 25, 2019

  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 […]

For those of you who don’t know, I actually offer wardrobe consultation services, where I can help curate your closet by culling the unnecessary and/or articulating gaps that need to be filled. I was recently approached and asked to put together book bag options by a residential interior designer. She works in the city, commuting […]

Beginnings of Spring in Boston

April 23, 2019

  If there is anything I have learned as a Southern transplant to New England: we have EARNED our warm weather. We pay some heavy dues in the winter, and once the tide turns and warmth starts to creep in, we CELEBRATE it big time! And that is my favorite thing of all about Boston. […]
