  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, […]

Favorites from Everlane

January 1, 2020

  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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Form Meets Function: A Stylish Bookbag Roundup

May 5, 2019

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 […]

  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. […]

Our Winter Getaway to Cabo

March 6, 2019

As you know, winter in New England can be brutal. And if you follow my Instagram, you know I recently ran away from old man winter and escaped to much fairer weather in Mexico! I’ve learned that the secret to every Bostonian’s happiness is to go somewhere warm to recharge at some point during blizzard […]

Confession: I’m known to digitally window shop Net-A-Porter a lot, dreaming up super chic outfits and parties I can go to if my budget were truly unlimited. More than that though, their magazine Porter is essentially the only fashion magazine I subscribe to anymore because they really know their stuff, and it often sparks lots […]

Pretty Plastics: Everlane’s Renew Line

November 5, 2018

If you have been following my style journey for a while now, you know that I am a vocal advocate of not only supporting ethical and sustainable makers and products, but also eliminating the use of synthetics in your wardrobe. Anytime I’m making a new purchase, I dig around the inside of the garment, find […]
