The weather last week was all over the place, which makes getting dressed for the day a little tricky. When the seasons change it feels like everything in my closet is suddenly ‘wrong.’ The calendar says one thing but the weather says another. I’m ok with that sweet summer sunshine to stick around as long as she wants.

I picked up these leather shorts during a trip to Cali a couple months back, and have found them the perfect piece for this time of year. Despite my love for summer, I can’t stop buying everything for fall right now – leather, boots, scarves, cashmere – this time of year is pure bliss for any clothes hound.

on the go

By September 15, 2014 Life


It’s been a whirlwind few weeks. Between a quick couple days in Chicago (to visit a showroom), a California getaway with the boyfriend (where I got to visit a girlfriend in LA and then we trekked to Yosemite for some hiking – and camping!!), and this past weekends work trip to magical NYC (for a spring buying trip for Proper), it’s been a month full of moving fast, packing and unpacking bags, and lacking any sort of routine. I love that. While the trip out to Cali was just for fun and NYC was just for work, I always tend to mix the two. Work talk while I’m on vacation, and sneaking in play time while I’m traveling for work. Getting out of town is the best – I always come home inspired, energized, and exhausted all at the same time.

girl truth

By September 10, 2014 Beauty


I’ve had a love affair with my eyelash curler for pretty much as long as I can remember. It’s the one makeup bag and purse staple that when used, I finally feel ‘put together.’ When Veet asked me to be part of their ‘Girl Truths’ campaign, and share a silly ritual that I do on the regular, I knew it involved my trusty eyelash curler. I admit to keeping one at all times in several purses, my makeup bag, and sometimes even in my car. It’s ridiculous, I know! But I love that little metal clamp and what it does – or really, how it makes me feel.

I want to know what your ‘Girl Truth’ is – what little beauty routine do you do regularly that you know may be a bit unnecessary, but you do it anyway? Leave a comment by Friday 9/12 sharing what it is and you’ll be entered to win great Veet products. (My personal fave – the Fast Acting Gel Cream Hair Remover – it’s superfast and easy to use, and gets all the spots on my legs I tend to miss with a razor!)

I just got back from a quick couple days in Chicago and this dress colorful gem made the trip with me. It’s so lightweight, doesn’t show wrinkles, and the fun print is the best (isn’t it?!) The two things that are most important to me when I’m going out of town – even if just for a night – is to pack as light and efficiently as possible – something I’ve gotten much better at over the past year or so – and taking in as much of the new place as I can. I tend to avoid Starbucks and other places I can easily go to at home, and try to hunt down the best local joints. Speaking of checking out new places, this weekend the boyfriend and I are heading out to Yosemite National Park! It’s one of his favorite spots so he has some experience with the park but I’ve never been – so if anyone has some must-do’s we should check out while there, let me know!
