Recently, I had the privilege of working with some talented artists on a photo collab.
We paired a subtle glittery French Connection strapless dress with a flowly Parisian silk skirt + almost black Rampage combat boots. To add texture and variety, we added layers with a dark purple velvet J Crew jacket and jean jacket.
The dress can be worn simply or in combination with other pieces. I love starting with a simple yet stylish piece, and adding other colors and textures in you wouldn’t necessarily expect. Intentional eclection.
For the hair and makeup, Ryann curated a thoughtfully fun meets glamour bold look for going out, a fashion event or just plain #babealert. IF ONLY every day could start off this way! I lament. I’m always impressed with her thoughtfulness and creativity. Amy, our amazing photographer, worked with our vision and we created both stylishly urban looks. You will see Amy used natural light and city backgrounds to create the look we were going for. They are both divine to work with and I definitely recommend you check out their work, “Immediately, if not sooner,” – Stanford Blatch, SATC.
A few things I adore for shoots are natural light, inspired vibes and minimal editing. In this case, inspired vibes means the energy your team feeds off from each other. I spent wayyy too much time agonizing over which photo to use, but what else is new, but finally fell into the perfect group for this post. Anyone else over hyper obsess over their flaws until you freeze from moving forward? Gulp. Guilty! I would like to invite you and myself to embrace the unique things that make you, y o u.
Here are some faves from this dynamic team: Continue reading
Recently I had the opportunity to be adorned in flower crowns and painted with princess tribal paint. If only this could be how every day started! Was this a glimpse into the life of how the Kardashians everyday routine, with a boho dash? I could definitely get used to this.
When I stepped into the fashion world, I subscribed to thinking beauty was an idea that I had to look a certain way, weigh a certain number, and acceptance was woven into that thinking. Being loved was accepted on the outside, preferably with a boyfriend in tow. Continue reading
It’s hard not to be distra-er excuse me. My phone buzzed.
As I was saying, so many selfies, so little time! Ahem. Where were we?
Something about staying focused-so much for wearing Warby Parker’s today! (kidding!) Back to business. Whether it is our expectations for ourselves and others, technological advances or a combination of completely unrelated reasons, the equation for distractions feels endless. Continue reading
A few months ago I took an improv class as a team building with coworkers. After overcoming the initial fear of potential embarrassment, the process of ‘clearing out the attic’ of your imagination became such a blast and illuminated a new outlook on life, my creative soul soaked right up.
Fast forward a few months and I find myself wrestling with a question that had become lodged in my attic, packaged up nicely but left to collect cobwebs. Continue reading

As a hopeless romantic, I can’t help but dream big and love Love! Sometimes a little too much (and for my patient friends’ sake). Nevertheless, if you have encountered a Not so Meetcute or first date gone Bamboozlingly Awry, well you aren’t alone.
Here are a few encounters that may or may not be based on real experiences…
