Hello 30!

It happened. I turned 30! And I loved every second of it. If you would have asked me five years ago if I thought my heart would be so full from kissing my twenties goodbye and embracing my thirties, I would have told you NO! But thank God for growth, through grace. I'm so excited about my 30s and all the promise they are already being filled with. With that excitement comes so much creative energy that I can wait to see unfold as I continue to declare that 2018 and beyond will be my best and most fearless years yet!

Hello 2018! New Year, Simple Style Goals!

Happy New Year beautiful people! For whatever reason, kicking off a new year, which happens to fall at the beginning of a new week is crazy exciting for me. Maybe the fact that I'm 23 days away from turning 30 adds to that excitement but knowing that today gives all of us an opportunity to kick-start, reboot, unlearn, and take-up whatever we need in order to have our best year yet makes this Monday worth looking forward to. Sometimes, the idea of a new year does necessitate a blank slate. For me this year, in an effort to thoroughly enjoy my 30th year, I've chosen not to overwhelm myself with a list of "New Year, New Me" expectations. Instead, I've decided to make a small list of things I want to enjoy more or do better this year without making any drastic life changes.

The Oversized BLAZER: Is There A Right Way To Wear It?

While there’s nothing new and groundbreaking about a blazer, be it fitted, oversized, slouchy, or structured, talking about the blazer look and wearing one is still considered a trendy thing, in a very classic chic sort of way. It seems like boyfriend blazers went up a size and are bigger, longer, wider, broader and it makes me wonder one thing: Is there actually a right way to create a head-turning oversized blazer look?

Double Duty: How to Transition Summer Pieces into Fall

Learning how not to pack away my summer pieces to make room for my favorite sweaters, booties and jackets is a struggle I'm still learning to cope with BUT this year's change of season has been a lot smoother for me. With just a few simple styling tricks, I've finally learned how to take my favorite warm-weather basics into fall to avoid that mid-day heat stroke that comes with waking up to 66-degree weather only to be slapped in the face with 89-degree weather by lunchtime. 

Hello September!

It's FINALLY here! The best time of the year. The kickoff to all things boots, jackets, pumpkin spice, football, and fall. The birth month of my absolute favorite season of the year. It's FINALLY SEPTEMBER! While everyone is sad to start saying goodbye to summer, I'm running towards fall, full speed, with arms open wide. 

Over(it)all

I'm a denim all year kind of girl and thanks to the effortlessly charming touch they bring to an outfit, overalls are still a year-round staple I can't get enough of. If you like the look of overalls (I realize they're not for everyone)—overalls are more approachable than you think.

Flower Child: Perspex and Kimonos

We've all done it—you stumble across a vintage shop and lay eyes on the most beautiful piece that you have NO IDEA how you'd wear it. If you're anything like me you buy it anyways. Vintage styles can be intimidating sometimes and if you're looking for the perfect muse for vintage inspiration I know just the spot.

Double Denim

So many people think that denim on denim or the Canadian Tuxedo, (whichever you prefer to call it) is an absolute no no, however, when it’s done right, it can look amazing!

Birthday Girl: Hello 29!

It's always a blessing to see another year and with all the growth I've experienced since last year, this year was extra special for me. I can't put into words how overwhelming the love of God feels and how much He's revealing Himself to me as I learn to lean on Him in all that I do.
