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 t ...

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 ...

What’s Your Happy Place?
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Our Big Adventure
It's official – Spring is here! This change in season is one of the most highly anticipated for me every year. I happily say goodbye to winter (even if it's not completely warm yet) and I start looking forward to everything that the new season br ...

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 ...

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 anti ...

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 ...

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 ...

Life Lately Vol. 6
This short week was secretly a doozie. I don't know if it was because the long weekend made it harder to get back into the swing of things or what, but I'm so happy it's Friday. I got a little Barry's workout in thank goodness and other than that we' ...

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 ...

Winter Over The Knee Boots
OVER THE KNEE BOOTS (similar here) • VELVET MINI SKIRT • CASHMERE TURTLENECK (similar here) • BAG • SUNGLASSES • TIGHTS If you ask just about any girl what one winter staple on their Christmas list was this year, it was bound to be a pa ...

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 ...
