One of the best investments you can make in your wardrobe is a┬ástatement jacket. This leather jacket I scored from Zara looks like it could have come from a high-end brand like Acne or AllSaints. Instead I got it on sale and have never been able to find one like it for much under $1000. A jacket like this one is an important piece of your wardrobe. While you can get statement jackets in […]

No Stone Unturned

One of the things I love most about fashion is its ability to make you feel like you can do anything. Like when you’re excited to get dressed in the morning because you’re feeling inspired by putting things you already have together in a new way. Shopping your closet is one of my fav ways to get a new perspective and that helps carry over in my attitude for the rest of my day. Accessories […]

Winter Blues

It’s that time of the year when the whispers of Spring that peak through Winter’s doldrums make you long for warmer temps and sunny skies. One good sign Spring is on its way is that I can bust out my holey jeans. In the Winter months it’s usually too cold but come Summer they’re a great way to wear denim and keep cool. Pair them with a long cardi to keep you cozy and you […]

Monochrome State of Mind

I’ve never been interested in rules of fashion. In fact, I was embracing trends long before I knew there was such a thing. I’ve always felt like rules were meant to be bent, nowhere more so than in fashion. Here is one that I actually can get behind though – monochromatic dressing. As someone who needs 2 inch heels to reach 5 feet tall and is constantly asking people to reach the top shelf in […]

Hat Trick

I love a good hat! And this one by Topshop is one of my favs. But it wasn’t always that way. When I was a kid my mom thought I looked cute in them but every time she put one on me I tore it off. So would be the story of me and hats – only on long enough for my mom to snap a quick pic. I completely forgot about them until a […]

Trench Coat with a Twist

There are few things I love more than a designer collaboration with one of my favorite fast-fashion retailers. Something about all that hype and anticipation makes them like the Rose Bowl of the fashion world. Probably one of my favorites to date is the Altuzarra for Target collection. This trench combines the versatility of the trench with the elegance of a dress. The contrasting coated jean sleeves give it an edge so it’s the perfect […]

New Year’s Dreams

Today started a new year and with all this beautiful snow at our lake cabin I couldn’t resist a walk on nature’s blank slate. It was as if nature knew we were all starting over and wanted to join in! Our lake cabin has always been my second home so it’s only appropriate to celebrate the holidays here. The property has been in our family for almost 60 years! One of my favorite things is […]

Faux Fur and Firsts

  This is a first for me. I have been a lover of fashion since my dad brought me home a pair of sparkly ruby red slippers from his business trip to Paris when I was 4. Over the years I have been fascinated by the innumerable ways we can express ourselves through what we wear. Before we say a word, we’ve told a story about ourselves. With the help of my amazingly talented friend […]
