Photo 1As a Pacific Northwest native, I would often go camping with my family during the summer and we would always end the evening by sitting around a campfire making S’mores. I feel like most people have some sort of nostalgic connection to this sweet treat, as well as HERSHEY’S Milk chocolate because it’s one of the main (and best, in my opinion) ingredients in making an excellent S’more. The melted chocolate was always my favorite part and I would often sneak extra squares when no one was looking.
Photo 2But now that I live in a New York apartment, it’s not that easy to just whip up a good ol’ fashioned S’more over a fire pit anymore, so sometimes I have to get a little creative when I’m making them. By the way, did you know that Hershey’s is an official sponsor of Team USA for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games? Well, in honor of the occasion, Casey and I brought everything we needed to make S’mores over at my friend’s house (they have a backyard!) to watch the Opening Ceremony tonight. There really isn’t a more perfect American summer treat! We barbecued, played lawn games and caught up with friends we haven’t seen in a while – it was so fun! I even brought along a variety of festive Hershey’s products, complete with Team USA-themed packaging. When it was time to head back inside to watch the Games, we made a bunch of S’mores to bring inside with us to snack on while we cheered on our country.Photo 3Photo 4In honor of National S’mores Day on August 10th one lucky reader can win an awesome S’mores Kit complete with everything you’ll need to make them at home including HERSHEY’S Milk chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallows, roasting sticks and a burner. See below how you can enter to win! After using this handy little appliance for an evening, I can attest to the fact that it’s the perfect summer must-have for entertaining family and friends, especially if you don’t have your own fire pit or grill! We actually used it outside and just grabbed an extension cord to reach all the way out on the patio. Easy peasy!Photo 5Photo 6Photo 7How to Enter: Are you guys watching the Olympic Games? I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine being an Olympian and being in Rio for such an incredible accomplishment. How amazing right? But I know that they definitely give up a lot to get there and spend a lot of time away from best friends, family and loved ones to pursue their dreams. I would love to ask you guys to join in to show your support for Team USA by entering this giveaway and Tweeting ‘hello’s’ from home and other messages of support to the athletes using the hashtag #HelloFromHome, and tagging @hersheys, and @TeamUSA. GO TEAM USA! xoxo

Christine Cameron of My Style Pill wearing a dress, bag and boots from ModCloth 1I have been a fan of ModCloth ever since I started blogging, which was back in 2008. I eventually began working with the brand shortly after that (they even named a dress after me!) and they were the first company to run an ad on my site, which is so cool to think about. Needless to say I have a great relationship with them and am so excited to partner with them again!Christine Cameron of My Style Pill wearing a dress, bag and boots from ModCloth 3So let’s dive right in. Today’s topic is: workwear! Although I don’t technically have to go into an office everyday, I often have meetings with clients and brands, so when I need to look a bit more professional, I like to have easy, go-to dresses that I can slip on and look put together in minutes.

In this case, I chose to wear these cute neutral booties (shop similar styles here) with the dress to give it an understated vibe that didn’t feel too fussy. But you could easily dress up this look by wearing open toed sandals and a clutch or dress it down by wearing cute flats and a leather tote.Christine Cameron of My Style Pill wearing a dress, bag and boots from ModCloth 2

And speaking of totes, this particular one is my new fave. I love that it has three separate compartments that comfortably fit my computer, iPad, wallet, camera and anything else I might need for the day. Plus I love the mixed materials of canvas and leather – it really gives the bag a polished feel.

I am always advising my clients on where to find great work pieces that are versatile and cute, so I would love to know where you guys shop for your work clothing? Are you familiar with ModCloth’s awesome workwear options? If you have a few more minutes, shop around the site to find some more cute shoes, tops and bottoms for the office!

Christine Cameron of My Style Pill wearing Tommy Bahama blue and white linen dress 4As someone who works from home for the most part, I usually wear fairly casual clothing when it’s just me sitting at my desk. But there are also plenty of days that I have meetings or client sessions and I want to take my style up a notch and wear something I feel good in. On my busiest days, I definitely wear a few different “hats” whether it’s “blogger, stylist, friend or girlfriend,” but I always want to make sure that my outfits transition effortlessly into whatever it is I might be doing. Christine Cameron of My Style Pill wearing Tommy Bahama blue and white linen dress 2I find that during the summer I am drawn to pretty, lightweight shift dresses that I can easily dress up or down and this pretty white linen dress with elegant embroidery from Tommy Bahama is the perfect piece to wear to a meeting then straight out to happy hour with friends. Case in point: I wore this look earlier to a causal client session (a pair of simple flat sandals were in my bag – see my styling tip below) straight out to drinks with Casey and a few mutual colleagues at Parlor for some after work drinks.Christine Cameron of My Style Pill wearing Tommy Bahama blue and white linen dress 5Christine Cameron of My Style Pill wearing Tommy Bahama blue and white linen dress 3Styling tip:

Stash a high heel sandal in your bag to swap out your flat sandals, and a favorite accessory such as a statement necklace or a couple of bracelets to elevate your look in seconds. Or if jewelry isn’t your thing, grab your favorite red lipstick to really pack some punch!

I have lived in New York for eleven and a half years now, which is crazy to think about. Over the years, I have found that I’ve acquired my favorite spots to do things such as work, eat, drink and shop, so when StyleCaster and H&M asked to collaborate with me on a project sharing my favorite haunts, I was definitely down to share! Since I live downtown, I decided to focus on the West Village and Meatpacking District as my focal points to keep it local and easy to navigate. My mini city diary guide is now live on StyleCaster so if you’d like to see and read more, click HERE! Thanks for following along! xo

SHAPE_6

I am not the biggest fan of tight fitting clothing as I am sure many of you know…I basically live in boyfriend jeans and turtlenecks. But that said, I do like the idea and look of body-con skirts when worn and styled correctly.

SHAPE_5Case in point, this ankle length, super fitted ribbed skirt with a big slit up the thigh. I scooped it up the other week when I was in Zara and decided to challenge myself by wearing it with something other than an oversized baggy sweater that would totally hide my shape. I started by wearing the skirt without shapewear and I felt okay but definitely not as structured or shapely as I wanted to look.

SHAPE_2So I took it a step further and pulled on my Hi- Waist Long Leg Shaper by Wacoal, which creates a nice lift to your seat while shaping your midsection and thighs, redefining and flattering your natural curves. And because they are virtually seamless with leg openings for the smoothest possible look and feel under clothing, no rolling up or bunching happens. So when I pulled the undergarment on, I immediately noticed that everything seemed tighter and more toned looking. Win win!

SHAPE_4SHAPE_3SHAPE_1All of these perks helped boost my confidence in wearing it in the first place and made me feel comfortable enough to pair it with a cropped sleeveless sweater, (progress!) a structured blazer and my favorite high heels. Overall, I felt comfortable (the high-waisted aspect of the shapewear comes up right below your ribs so you can still breathe) and very feminine. What are your thoughts on shapewear? Do you wear it, and if so, how different do you feel when it’s on? Head on over to Wacoal to check out their other awesome shapewear options. Also, I would love to know your thoughts on this so make sure to leave your comments below!

Whenever I come home to Seattle I always head down to where I grew up, which is an area called Richmond Beach. I love walking all the way down to the beach, sitting on the sand and taking in the expansive view. But I also love standing at the top on the bluff, which is so breathtaking.

The thing about Seattle is, it can be stunning with its surroundings, but it can also be gray, rainy and kinda gloomy, which can make it very hard to take outfit photos! It can be drizzling (or pouring) one minute and then all of a sudden there will be a sun break.

So when I got up the other morning and put this outfit together, I wasn’t quite sure if my new suede boots would get ruined (seeing that we had a torrential downpour the day before) or if I would luck out and hit a sweet spot. Luckily, by the time we arrived at the overlook, the clouds had started to part, the sun began to shine through, and the different contrasts and dimensions of the sky were silvery and calm.

(I use Kiwi Suede Protector to protect my suede boots during the winter months.)

Rainy weather or not, I love these suede over-the-knee boots because I have been on the hunt for a nice dark gray color that I can wear year round (minus summer). Right now I think these boots will be perfect to wear over jeans or leather pants, but I can also see rocking them with tights and a cute skirt, a long skirt or a fun flowy dress in the spring. (Shop more boots here!)

Anyway, we snapped a few photos of me for old times sake in front of my favorite backdrop and I was so taken with how my outfit blended perfectly with the sky! I kid you not, it started sprinkling shortly after we finished. Oh, Seattle.

Outfit Details:

On me: Illesteva Sunglasses | J.Crew Striped Turtleneck | Forever 21 Sweater (similar) | Zara Jeans (old) | Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Rich FigOn my Mom: Illesteva Sunglasses | J.Crew Striped Top | Max Studio Sweater (via T.J. Maxx) | Anthropologie Jeans

Everyone is always telling me that I am the spitting image of my Mom and that we have the same mannerisms and personality. Well, seeing that she is not only a beautiful and stylish woman, she is also one of the most kind, generous and funny people I know, so I take that as a major compliment! I feel so lucky to call her my Mother and best friend.

Isn’t she the cutest?! I wanted to treat her to an early Christmas present and had recently been sent a gift card from T.J. Maxx that was sent to me with the intent to treat a loved one who I felt deserve a special gift. I immediately thought of my Mom, so we drove over to a nearby T.J. Maxx and ended up find the most perfect gray cashmere sweater for her. Seattle tends to be pretty damp and chilly throughout the winter, so this cozy little number was just the piece to add to her wardrobe.

She has been wearing it nonstop since we got it and has been layering a cute striped top underneath it for fun. I took a cue from her and decided to dress up in a similar outfit. I told her to put on a pair of my sunglasses so we could match and we headed out to the front stoop to take a few photos for fun.(Thanks Dad!)

If you get a second, check out T.J.MaxxMarshalls and HomeGoods’ new holiday campaign, Bringing Back the Holidays, which focuses on shopping for people, not for gifts. I love that it’s more about about finding that thoughtful present that will make for an incredibly meaningful moment this holiday, which was exactly what it was for my Mom and me. :) xo
