Casey and I drove up to Bellingham yesterday to visit my old college campus, Western Washington University (I also went to Fairhaven College for those of you that are familiar with the schools), which was so much fun and definitely a walk down memory lane for me. The town is only about an hour and a half away from Seattle, so we decided to take a little trip up there to show him my old stomping grounds. Luckily it was beautiful out and we caught some amazing views along the way and down by the water. One of my favorite parks between Bellingham and Fairhaven is called Boulevard Park. I’ll let the photo below speak for itself. :)
I found the “evil eye” necklace at a little boutique in Marblehead, Mass. back in November, and Casey bought me the giraffe necklace for Christmas. :)

We had a blast and I am so happy I was able to share the day up there with him.
Hi everyone! How was your holiday? I’ve been in heaven here, spending the past two weeks enjoying quality time with my family, seeing good friends and cuddling with my favorite pup, Barney.
One of my favorite things to do when at home in Seattle is to visit an area called Richmond Beach, which is where I grew up. My friend Steph and I drove down there last week and took in the beautiful view and reminisced about being 17, driving around listening to music and talking about boys.
There is something about being next to a large body of water (more specifically, the ocean) that is so calming to me. I could sit on a piece of driftwood for hours, with this view in front of me, and be as happy as a clam.
Hi guys, happy Monday! Hope everyone’s weekend was great. I spent mine relaxing with my family and catching up with friends. It feels so good to be home.
My Dad shot these photos for me when we were out and about running errands in Fremont. I thought this wall mural was a nice, colorful change and felt like it contrasted nicely with my mostly grey and blue outfit, which now brings me to my look.
So, I had my eye on these grey leather pants and finally was able to snag them due to them being heavily on sale and some unused credit at Shopbop. They are so comfortable and such a pretty color. I actually took them to the tailor to get them shortened, right after photographing them, and can’t wait to get them back in a few weeks. I have a feeling they will be in heavy rotation over the next couple of months.
They are super comfortable and really well made. The leather is soft and flexible but also weather resilient at the same time. I absolutely love them and am currently on the wait list for the burgundy, and black version as well.
Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am so excited because I am flying to Seattle today for the holidays. I can’t wait to see my friends, family and of course, Barney! I packed this skirt with me and plan on wearing it on New Year’s Eve with Casey. Not sure what we are doing yet, but regardless, I always like to dress up a bit and this number is the perfect piece to work into my outfit. The tiny scallops, box pleats and silvery fabric add a festive touch and gives off a sweet and feminine vibe, which I really like. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show you easy ways to style it up, simply by changing out the top and necklace, creating two different fun and festive looks!
During the winter months I live in some sort of puffy sleeping bag coat that covers up anything cute I might be wearing underneath and doesn’t really allow for a lot of bangles or bracelet stacking, since they tend to get caught up in the sleeve while I’m removing my coat. With that said, I find myself wearing less and less jewelry as it gets colder but I still like to have at least one pretty and classic piece on, which ends up being a watch of some sort. When Movado approached me about their holiday program, I jumped at the chance to style up a piece from their collection since I am a huge fan of the brand. I styled up their Movado Museum Wrap watch, which is made of stainless steel with a white mother-of-pearl Museum dial and Swiss quartz movement. It’s such an elegant and versatile piece and can be worn alone or stacked with delicate bangles.
Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you’re surviving this wet and dreary weather. Thankfully, this weekend is supposed to be a bit nicer, so if you’re downtown in the city during the afternoon, come hang out with me at the Bloomingdales in Soho! I will be there from 1-4 along with Nixon Watches and InStyle magazine, where we will be sharing the new watch styles available (a perfect holiday gift!) as well as offering helpful accessory styling and stacking tips! (See official invite below.)
Here is a festive and cheerful post for you guys because honestly, the weather here is proving to be a bit difficult at times. But knowing you guys are there along side me, makes it so much better! So, thanks for that. xo
