Not So Basic Black

When it comes to my own personal style I like to keep things as uncomplicated as possible. I’m typically  a minimalist, preferring to keep things clean and simple with just the slightest twist to add interest. Case in point – for a night out in the city this past weekend, I went back to my old friend black, eliminating the same old, same old vibe by wearing a sleeveless blazer sans shirt and pairing it with faux leather leggings. I added lace heels and a red bag and with not a bit of fuss I was good to go....

Happy Friday, everyone! For being such a short week it sure felt long to me. Could be my travel schedule. I got back into town two days ago and have been scrambling to get caught up on everything here at home ever since. No surprise given all the running that I’d be grabbing my new favorite non-color from my closet – white. Nothing beats white denim paired with a fluffy, white, oversized sweater. I added a bright, multicolored bag, nude sandals and simple jewelry. Easy, chic, comfortable and calming – not a bad Friday cocktail. Wishing you a wonderful...

Playing Favorites

End of summer dressing can sometimes start to feel a bit monotonous. Instead of buying something new, my trick at this late date is to shop my closet. Fortunately, I’ve accumulated a pretty vast wardrobe of classic pieces that have honestly stood the test of time. This skirt and top are among my all-time favorites. Clean lines, simple silhouette, a perfect go-to look for this time of year.

Some Like It Hot

I’ll never forget the first time I traveled South. A Spring Break during my sophomore year of college. It would be my very first almost-adult road trip. My friend and I decided on a whim to jump into her car and head to her aunt’s place in St. Pete Beach, Florida. The midwest was still knee deep in snow, so without hesitation we drove off on our 17 hour excursion, the blustery scenery slowly disappearing in the rearview mirror. When I finally stepped onto the beautiful sandy beach it was with a deep sense of knowing that I had...
