NO. 147 // ON HOUSE DECORATING IN FL

THROWBACK // 

A favorite casual look from last summer! A bright striped midi dress with lots of accessories!

Question: I know you aren’t sharing a ton about your house in FL, but while decorating, are there any brand favorites that you can share?

Answer: We are just entering the decorating phase now! The plan is to take our time, not rush, and challenge ourselves to find things that we really love. Of course, we are shopping and browsing all the regular stops, but here are a few newer-to-me brands that I have my eye on at the moment:

Dishes  //  Cookware  //  Lighting  //  New Furniture  //  Antique Furniture

NO. 146 // HOW MY STYLE HAS EVOLVED

THROWBACK // 

Feeling for bright, bright statement making looks at the moment! Revisiting one of my favorite outfits from 2018 that featured all of the tulle and tights and brights. While my style has evolved over the years, the tulle has been a constant!

Question: How do you feel that your style has evolved over the years?

Answer: Great question! I believe the basics to my styling have remained quite consistent over the years. I still love layering, wearing color, and all things feminine with a hint of quirk. And, outerwear and skirts are still my two favorite categories to purchase and style. With that being said, back in my S.F. days, I experimented a bit more – going both a little more edgy and boho at times. While I still experiment today, it is more within a range that still feels more like me, in comparison to eight or nine years ago when I was still trying to figure out what my style would become. I don’t think I’ll ever give in to some of the typical NYC trends, like wearing all black or living in workout gear, but I do think my time in the city (aka getting older) has pushed my styling to be slightly more sophisticated – of course always still with a twist!

NO. 145 // POLKA DOTS & THOUGHTS ON S.F.

THROWBACK // 

A look back to last August and this fun and flowy polka dot dress by Johanna Ortiz. This look was shot outside of Gramercy Park!

Question: Do you miss living in San Francisco?

Answer: I had such a wonderful five years living in San Francisco. I am being honest, I don’t really miss it, but I do look back on it fondly. Being on the east coast now, I am much closer to family and NYC just feels more like home to me. I love changing seasons, the hustle and bustle and constant activity of NYC, and the number of fashion-related events that take place here. San Francisco will always have a special place in my heart as it was my first home after college, home of my first real job, my first apartment, and my first promotion! It is they city where I met my fiancé and so many of my lifelong friends. But, NYC is home to me now!
