Palm Print & Summer-Ready Styles

Perhaps it’s because this is the summer of going nowhere... but these days I really find myself pulled toward palm print. It has a way of transporting you away from your current reality and offering a beeline to the beach. Sure, it’s unlikely that beach is literal. For example, we are stuck at home in the throes of potty training our little guy.…

4 Steps to Define Your Personal Style

“I’d rather go to the dentist than shop for clothes,” a friend told me. Huh? What?! My jaw nearly hit the floor. There are few things I enjoy more than the process of curating a great outfit, scouring the racks or websites for affordable pieces that fit my aesthetic. It was hard to fathom someone not feeling the same. Then, I realized I might be the outlier here!…

We will never be able to freeze time, but family photography might be the next best thing. I don’t know about you, but I will treasure our family photos forever. Why?

Memorial Day Thoughts + Sales Round-Up

Conservative in the front, party in the back… There’s something about the change of seasons that always has me reaching for fashion with a bit of extra flair. In particular, I am all about back detail! Whether it’s a bow, a criss cross, or an unexpected ruffle — there’s nothing quite like a splash of surprise as you turn around to truly elevate an outfit.…

Resilience and ‘Dancing’ Through The Storms

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s learning to dance in the rain.

Some might call this line trite or overused. However, I’ve always loved the quote. I used to think it’s because I was a dancer, but it’s actually the message about resilience that truly speaks to me. It’s a call to find beauty in the midst of adversity, to keep pushing when things feel upside down.…

3 Ways to Style a Lantern Sleeve Top

I can’t quite decide how I feel writing about fashion during coronavirus… There is so much hurt, pain, and uncertainty in the news each day. Amid significant needs, like job loss and hunger, chatter about style can seem “fluffy” or tone deaf. On the other hand, I’ve caught myself actively seeking out that kind frivolous fashion fare! It’s a momentary escape from reality. And let’s be honest—when you’re spending all day, every day in yoga pants—browsing blogs, scrolling Instagram, or clicking through pretty dresses on the websites of your favorite stores can feel downright cathartic.…
