Fall + Winter

Preparing Your Fall Wardrobe
My goal this upcoming fall is to focus on pieces that I can get a lot of wear out of and feel like I'm contributing more to my overall "wardrobe" with each purchase. I fall very guilty in the summertime of looking for super trendy and extra colorful ...

The Perfect Plaid Top For Now & Later
It wasn’t until I moved up here that I really started appreciating and loving fall. In fact, it’s one of my favorite seasons in the city and is definitely the best time of year to come visit. If you ask any New Yorker now they will likely agree w ...

Bell Sleeves
It's no surprise that this trend has recently exploded, especially this time of year when the subtle details and smallest rays of sunshine or delight make the most difference. Bell sleeves are a cute way to add a little something extra to your stand ...

What My Days Really Look Like
I've been struggling with inspiration lately and have found myself drawn to the posts by friends sharing more about what their real lives are like, so today I'm going to share what my day to day really looks like! My days are actually pretty rout ...

Black + White Basics
Sometimes you have to just get back to the basics. The weather here in New York has been all over the place – one day it's sunny and high 40's and the next 3 are rainy and freezing. On most mornings when I'm getting dressed I've been thinking: ...

2017 Travels with Away
Woo hoo! January is in the books and I’m happy to say it was a really quiet one. By the end of the holidays I just felt like I was running on empty and needed to hit the reset button – like 8 times over. That being said I’m rested and ready ...

Polished Winter Coat
The first person that came to mind when I saw this coat was Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) from Scandal. It just says I'm a smart, polished woman who gets it done. Right?  I've been channeling those vibes into this first month of the year and try ...

Soft Winter Hues
Do you ever feel like the only color you ever wear in the winter is black? Me too. I blame it slightly on living in New York and that being the color of choice, but I really wanted to soften my winter wardrobe up a bit. I shared another look ear ...

Adding Color To Your Winter Wardrobe
Color can be very tricky. Seasonally I am a total chameleon – in the summer all you see me wearing is color, but as soon as the weather changes it’s like the life and color just disappear (sort of mirroring my feelings about it, I guess!). I g ...

New Year Closet Cleanout
How to build a wardrobe that you love – it's an ongoing learning experience and something that will continue to change every year. I just finished a major closet cleanout and re-org this weekend and had to take a step back and look at things from a ...

Fewer Better Things
It's hard to believe that the year is almost over and that in just a few days I'll be 30. How did that happen?! I've been thinking about it a lot over the past few months, mostly because it doesn't seem possible, but also to gather some thoughts ...

Casual Winter Outfit
Christmas is almost here and I've been running around like crazy trying to make sure I'm ready for it! We leave for Texas in the morning and had a packed weekend, so it's really been a late night endeavor to finish all of my errands in time. I'm sure ...

The Gift Of Cozy
Now that we’re in crunch time, if you haven’t started your holiday shopping you better hit the pedal! I’ve shared some ideas, but today want to talk about giving the gift of cozy. Living in 2 of the most desperately cold cities in the U.S. w ...

GIVEAWAY: Bernardo Down Jacket
I have such a tough time packing for weekends away or trips in the winter and I'm sure you can relate. Coats are so bulky, so don't even think about bringing multiple or needing one to work out in. This packable Bernardo jacket is a lifesaver if you ...

Holiday Sparkle
'Tis the season to really shine! I love the holidays for a million reasons, but especially love getting a chance to get dressed up and a little extra fancy. Between company parties, holiday parties with friends and our annual family friend "Christmas ...

Lace High Neck Top
Most days when I stand in our closet and try to decide what to wear to get dressed I end up in some kind of top and jeans. Admittedly, I'm a blouse girl. I don't know how it happened, but I have more tops than I know what to do with. I fell in love w ...

Making Date Nights Special
When you live with your significant other, every night is kind of a date night by definition. In my single days a date night meant that we were going to see each other and so I would mayyybe try a little harder getting ready that morning and make su ...

Winter Workout Gear
Winter is one of the toughest times of the year to stay active. Not only does it take another level of commitment to get out in the cold weather and workout, but then there's all the delicious, warm, and not-so-healthy food. As soon as the weather ch ...

What To Wear Out In The Winter
Now that it's actually cold outside, let's talk about "going out" in the winter. What does that even mean? I laugh when I think about the nights we would go out back in Chicago in full blown winter coats over our little dresses and tights, shivering ...

Perfectly Fall
I don't think anyone will disagree with me when I say that weekends in the fall are the very best. I love nothing more than not setting an alarm, making breakfast at home, the crisp air of a walk, and seeing where the day takes me. During the week I ...

Bernardo Jacket
One thing I've learned from living in Chicago and now New York is you really can never have too many coats. Throughout the year there will be enough strange combinations of weather that you'll find a need for just about every type. In my growing coll ...

Why I Buy Souvenirs On Trips
A few months back I took a trip back to Dallas with my co-workers who had never been down there before. I never had a chance to really post much about it except for on Instagram, but we had an absolute blast. The weekend was full of lots of queso, f ...

Lace Up Sweater
We've had a strange fall so far when it comes to the weather. In the city the leaves have barely started to change, and days have wavered between random days in the 70's and surprising days in the high 40's. It's left us struggling to figure out wha ...

There are Mondays, and then there are those rare Mondays where you actually feel refreshed and excited for the week. Today is one of those Mondays! After spending what I consider to be a near perfect weekend around the city and at home (fun dinner w ...

Braided Booties
If you're anything like me, it's really really hard to buy things in any color other than black or tan – especially when it comes to shoes. Of the 5 rows of shoes in my closet 3 are all black shoes, 2 are all tan shoes and I have one lonely pair o ...

Breaking The Pattern
Well, it's been a little bit but I'm finally back and getting into my routine again! The past few weeks have been totally crazy – in and out of town, lots of visitors, you know the drill. I've barely had time to catch back up before I've been beh ...

The Great Outdoors
If there’s one thing that really gets me excited for fall (other than football season) it’s flannels. I know that sounds ridiculous to some, but it’s my absolute favorite thing to wear during the autumn months. They’re just so cozy, casual an ...

Finding A Pattern You Love
Do you ever stumble upon something that you love and wish you had it in every color and could wear it every day? That's how I felt about this blouse when I stopped into Ann Taylor to pick out some new pieces for fall. I actually did get it in anoth ...

How To Style A Neck Scarf
As with a lot of "trends" this year, I was slow to decide to give into this one. They've been around forever and I actually have 2 vintage neck scarfs that I picked up at shops in Dallas years ago, but thanks to Pinterest and Instagram there are fr ...
