How To Style A Smocked Skirt
Spring is officially upon us and so that means it's time to dust off your skirts and sandals! Inevitably the first few real weeks of the season after 6 months of waiting I stand there in my closet and ask myself, "what do I wear"? While we're stil ...

Gingham Dress & My Southern Roots
It's true what they say – you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take the Texas out of the girl. It wasn't until our last trip back to the Lone Star State that it really hit me how much that rings true. In my early twenties I really tri ...

Floral Pants & Mules
Every year when spring rolls around, I feel like my wardrobe makes a huge shift. I go from edgy New York City girl to sweet and southern casual girl again. I actually have kept a section of my closet for all of the new things I've been most excited t ...

Everyone has one. Whether it's walking along the beach listening to the waves crash, sitting on a patio watching the sunset, or curled up in bed with a good book there's really no wrong answer. Your happy place is very personal to you and you alone a ...

White Dresses Under $100
Easter Sunday is one of my favorite days from growing up. We would always go to church and follow it up with a big celebratory brunch with all of our family friends (our relatives lived far away). I used to start at the dessert and work my way back t ...

Swimsuit Season
Every year as we round the corner towards spring and summer I start getting the itch to shop for swimsuits. Maybe it's the anticipation of finally being in a pool or an ocean again, but I love to think ahead to what I might want to wear for the new s ...

Are You A Jeans Person?
You're running late and have 15 minutes to get dressed and be out the door. What do you put on? My answer 9 times out of 10 is a pair of jeans. I realized the other day looking at a few friends' Instagram accounts that they're what I would call "dre ...

Transitioning From Winter
Despite the fact that snow is falling down on most of the Northeast and Midwest today, I'd much prefer to look ahead to the coming days where we can finally ditch our coats (again) and move towards dresses and sunnier days. Before we get back to san ...

Chasing Your Dreams
Admittedly, I had not seen a single movie that was up for an Oscar. Oops! I haven’t been to a movie in ages even though several of them were on my list. To my surprise and delight La La Land was available for me to watch on my flight the other week s ...

Ready To Spring Forward
Mother nature has been playing a few tricks on us, but I hate to admit that we’re not quite there yet. There have been peeks of spring and for those of you fortunate enough to get out of town you can get tastes of the next season elsewhere. In antici ...

Making The Transition
The transition to Spring is always the easiest for me to make. I'm usually hitting the gas on breaking out my skirts and sleeveless tops long before most are in anticipation of the real arrival of spring (a.k.a. the END of the dreadful winter). Even ...

A Place For Everything
Long gone are the days of complicated accessories and clothing that don’t serve a purpose for me. I’ve been living the city life for far too long now for things that I own to not serve a purpose and most importantly help a sister out. I’m the girl th ...

The Final Countdown
I can't believe we're in the final countdown of summer. Labor Day is around the corner and thanks to the humidity and heat here in the city, I'm actually thinking that this year's transition to fall will for the first time be a welcome one. It was ...

My Comfort Zone
The phrase "personal style" is such a funny one to me. Everyone talks about it like it's something that's so defined and figured out, but it's actually my least favorite question to answer. That and "where do you see yourself in 5 years?". Why you as ...

Exploring The New Neighborhood
This weekend was our first full one in the new apartment and I have to say, it was pretty perfect. One of the most exciting things about the move for us was the idea of changing neighborhoods and getting to explore a new area together. There's really ...

Oh man, we're back in it now aren't we? The long weekend was truly well spent! We were in Martha's Vineyard with some friends for the 4th. It was just my third trip to the island and one of my favorites of the summer. While we spent a lot of time at ...

High Pony
I secretly used to hate ponytails. Take a girl who spent the majority of her life with her hair up in one thanks to 18+ years of soccer and she'll usually pull it down in about 5 minutes. It's been a combination of a lot of things over the years. I b ...

Summer Workwear
Last week was all about Summer Fridays, but let's be honest - what we really need  help with are Summer Mondays. It's hard enough to drag myself out of bed, but getting dressed can be extremely tricky in the summer. As summer heats up it's my natural ...
