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.

On one hand, I get it. Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer. We’re all itching to enjoy some sun and fun, while tossing a few burgers on the grill.…

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.…

Valentine’s Day Looks: When Versatility is Key
