Less Spending, More Simplicity

Unlike most style accounts on Instagram, my posts are never links to buy what I’m wearing. Why? Honestly I don’t buy clothes very often! Most of what I’m wearing isn’t new, available for purchase this week. That’s primarily due to busyness. And when I have downtime, shopping makes me tired more often than excited. And [...]

The Darling is in the Details

“Football  is a game of inches, menswear is a game of centimeters” You may be aware I am an utterly unabashed fan of college football. And as a stylist, of course adore a well-dressed man. Inches, centimeters, meanwhile my other love of womenswear has more breathing room, less rules. We can get away with an [...]

What Love’s Got To Do With It

I swooned immediately. They’re my favorite color. Peacock blue! But multiple sizes too big. As love does, I was blinded. After confirming they didn’t have more in the store, in any store, or online,

Do you feel uncomfortable at the idea of wanting to look or dress sexy? I sometimes do.

What Makes You Feel Beautiful

A friend asked me this question recently and what came to me is I feel most beautiful when I’m comfortable. In a skirt that isn’t too tight. With friends around whom I can be myself. Knowing …

Room To Breathe

A few years ago I never would have worn this piece. I wanted everything to be fitted. Not tight all-over, but without realizing it, I had told myself that I needed to prove that I was thin, that if I wore clothes too blousy, baggy or big I would look heavier. [Backstory, I was 20 pounds heavier at one point which at 5’4” and at the time a professional dancer going to work-aka-auditions in a leotard, was a tough season.]

I have a new every-dress. I found her while shopping in London and after weeks of traveling realized her versatility.

A Style For Every City

Traveling throughout Europe for a few months I became aware that certain cities have a style aesthetic. Of course there are tourists, but if you pay attention you can spot the locals and start to see a trend. In Paris the style is drapey, slouchy. It’s fashionable, they’re not drowning in their pieces, there’s a cool cut or hem or fabric happening. But everything nonchalantly says “Oh this? I just threw this on”.

Pink Outside The Box

I used to hate pink. I’ve always been feminine, but sure to distance myself from that girlie girl aesthetic -- Charlotte in Sex and The City, boutiques with “keep calm and buy more shoes” mottos next to tiara decor.

A Place Of Yes

You see the woman walking towards you, “I love what she’s wearing” you think, quickly trying to decipher what exactly it is that makes her look so chic. This simple afternoon on the Italian Riviera ensemble has multiple style principles occurring -- fabric, neutral colors, the waistline, the neckline, the skin tone, the accessories.
