A Classic Fall Look

This is, without question, my favorite outfit post of the year. It has everything I love in a good outfit: comfortable, tailored, and classic pieces. It’s really as simple as it gets and I think that’s what I love about it. It’s the small details that bring it from boring to sharp.

One of my friends was asking on Instagram where you can find well-made classic clothes nowadays. It seems, and I’d agree, that every store is hopping on the trendy bandwagon. I don’t hate that most of the time, but when you need to find closet staples that fit well and look great, where do you go? I had just received the box of clothes for this post in collaboration with Talbots and promptly messaged her back: GET TO TALBOTS, ASAP.

Ocean House Beach Polo Classic

A couple of weeks ago, I went to the inaugural Ocean House Beach Polo Classic. Lilly asked if I wanted to attend as their guest and I couldn’t say no! Ocean House has to be one of the most beautiful buildings in the country. It’s right on the water and looks like it came straight…

On My Radar

It feels particularly great getting to Friday this week. I don’t even know what was particularly wrong with me, I just felt a little “off.” To combat that feeling, I upped my water intake and did a few extra minutes of meditation every day. It’s not a cure-all and some weeks are just a little…

Fall Staples

This is an updated post that I’ve done for the past couple of years. What I love about this post, is that even though this is not the first time I’ve done it, I still 100% stand by the staples. They are truly timeless. This time around I’m going to try to add a bunch…

Some Wednesday Thoughts

A random collection of thoughts today: ONE. I have no concept of time this week. All week I’ve thought that it’s a different day than it is. Without Google Calendar alerts, I would have been in trouble! (I keep having to remind myself, “It’s Wednesday, it’s Wednesday” because it feels like Thursday. TWO. Last night…

How I Blow Dry and Curl My Hair

After years of dealing with my hair, I finally know how to do it myself. I actually prefer doing my own hair now versus going to get it done somewhere else. (Although, I do love it when I have my hair washed!) Here’s a little backstory on my hair: – I was born bald. And remained bald…

3 Ways to Handle a Transition Gracefully

Just this weekend I was talking to three friends all going through different transitions. One was starting a new job, one is looking for a new job, and another is moving across the country for a new job. They were three separate conversations, but all revolved around the same anxieties about transitions. I will be…

Falling for Gingham

It’s no secret that I love gingham. The print, especially of the navy and white variety, constitutes a large portion of my closet. While I wear gingham mostly in the summer, it can work for fall, too, when done right. I put away my very summery gingham dresses this past week but kept a few…
