Cable Knit & Statement Boots

Cable Knit & Statement Boots

Happy New Year! Welcome to my blog... 4.0? I can't actually remember how many incarnations my blog has gone through. The last one lasted about 15 months and as the first order of business of 2019 (I'm talking literally 5 minutes after the ball drop), I spontaneously decided to change everything up. I felt inspired from meeting and shooting with the talented and adorable Gabby in Orange, CA. I forgot how fun it can be to create. I feel excited again. For the shoot I wore a UO mock neck cable knit in two different outfits. The older I get,…

Fall Blues

Fall Blues

It's been a while! Recently I have been going through some life changes and adapting to them is taking all the energy that I have. I’ve been trying to do more and think less. I’m learning that instead of doing things when I feel like them, I should just go ahead and start doing things that I know to be good for me.

Zzyzx – Abandoned Desert Oasis

As a part of a road trip back from Las Vegas, we stopped by Zzyzx to see what it's all about. After a couple days in…

Fall Look in Cambridge, MA

Fall Look in Cambridge, MA

A main reason I wanted to visit Boston was because I wanted to experience fall in New England, so naturally I wanted to have the perfect fall outfit for it. Leading up to the trip, I purchased a plaid wrap skirt, a basic white tee (from the men's section), and a charcoal trench coat from Theory to assemble the perfect fall look. I originally wanted to go for a plaid blazer or coat as they are everywhere at the moment. I love the trend but it does seem a little overdone at this point, so I thought wearing the pattern…

Silk & Stripes

Silk & Stripes

    I like to buy pieces, not outfits; but when a sudden spark of inspiration puts a few of my favorite pieces together perfectly… well, let’s just say it’s an exciting moment. This particular outfit features a couple of especially special buys – the Scotch and Soda blazer and the silk cami from Cami NYC. I’ve had a thing for blazers since I was much younger because they’re extremely versatile. It can be the standout piece of both a professional outfit and a night-out outfit, and there aren’t many other clothing items that can do that. I snatched this…
