Spring is finally here! I am so delighted by this. The in-between weather can be tricky to dress for as it can be too cold for light layers but too warm for a jacket. I am sharing my must-have pieces for spring that should help solve the question of what to wear. A Classic Trench The classic trench is back for the season. Of course, this piece made it on the list of must-haves and is number one in my book. This style coat elevates the simplest jeans and tee shirt looks. Not to mention they are a great outerwear layer for the cooler mornings headed to work. I can guarantee you will get your mo ..read more

February has flown by! I am proud of the content I have been sharing with you all lately on Instagram. I have been having fun creating outfit reels and sharing more of my work outfits and weekend looks in motion. I have also been having fun creating new outfits with my clothes. Due to planning a wedding this year, I have been considerate of my expenses and minimized my consumption of goods. I have noticed that my style has evolved into more classic styles and silhouettes that work for me. This means I have been honing into the pieces that make up a capsule wardrobe. The basics are easily mix ..read more

One thing I love about social media is the discoverability of new brands, people, styles, etc. I have been finding more and more brands on Instagram that I love. The style, the marketing, it all has me hooked. Another note about these brands is that they are affordable and will give you that minimal and sophisticated look. Meshki Images sourced from Instagram I am genuinely obsessed with all the pieces by Meshki. They make some swoon-worthy dresses for all occasions. I would describe their pieces to be feminine, sexy, and attainable. I do not think you can go wrong with anything you choose f ..read more

It has been a while since I shared a few images and links of products that I have posted on my Instagram over here on the blog. If you are not following me on Instagram you will see many more daily looks, reels, and other things that I love in the moment on stories. I want to do these monthly recaps so you can easily find product links to previous posts as well. I love my teddy coat!

The Perfect Winter Accessory: The Shearling Bag

Every winter shearling jackets, scarves, hats, and even shearling shoes make their debut. One accessory that has quickly become a great winter statement piece is a shearling bag. While these bags are not a functional item to add warmth to your outfit, they are a great way to add texture to simple looks. Not to mention some are super adorable. I am usually not one to fall into the trends, but, I do think this one will stay. Just like the teddy coat has become a winter staple, I believe the shearling/ sherpa bag style will be embraced each year. I rounded up some of my favorites from different ..read more

The books I read in a year are some of my favorite posts to share! I genuinely enjoy reading as a way to slow down and relax. It is my favorite way to connect with others who I know read as well. This past year was a busy one so my goal for 2023 to give myself at least 30 minutes per day to read was not as successful as I hoped. But, I am still going into 2024 with the same goal!

This is the first year I am sharing a few items on my Christmas wishlist on the blog. I honestly do not have too many items that I truly need. Everything on this list is more of wants or items I have had my eye on for the past few months. A few years ago my family started doing Secret Santa with each other instead of everyone having to buy gifts for each person. This has quickly become our favorite way to celebrate! We each provide a wishlist and draw names. I am boring every year and asked for a planner and gift card. If I do get a gift card, I will most likely put my gift card into one or m ..read more

Some of us have extensive skincare routines and some of us may not even know where to start, but one thing I think most will agree on is having a skincare routine that is hydrating and protective of your skin is the most important. There are three types of skincare products that every woman should have within their routine from beginner to advanced. One thing that I have learned over the years is that skincare does not have to be complicated but it should be consistent to see the best results. I have also known that you do not need to buy the most expensive products on the market to have flaw ..read more

Summer is over and fall is here! I said goodbye to all my summer clothes and started bringing out my fall sweaters, boots, and jackets. I am a lover of Dolce Vita shoes and more specifically, their boots. They are well-designed and made for an affordable price point.
