wavy hair

I can’t believe Fashion Week is just a few days away! I’m pretty excited though because I have a bunch of great projects and shows coming up, plus a couple of my favorite west coast girls will be out here for the week as well, so that’s always fun.

Now, onto discussing these wavy hair pics. To be honest, I never really plan out what I am going to wear to the shows during fashion week, I sort of just figure it out on the spot, see what mood I am in and go from there. But, what is a little easier for me to plan, is my hair. I have been growing it out for over a year now and have been loving wearing it curly, wavy, beachy, you name it. And during busy, hectic times (i.e. #nyfw) I tend not to wash my hair everyday, so I really need reliable dry shampoo as well as hair and texture sprays that are going to keep my waves going strong for a couple days at a time. Seeing that I am also always trying out new products, serums, sprays etc, it can be hard to have a favorite, but I have found over the years that I really like using TRESemmé products. They just seem to work well with my hair, you know?


I love a good beachy sea salt spray. Excited to see how this one works with my hair.

That said, when I was approached by the brand to try out their new Perfectly (un)Done hair care line, I of course ran right over to my local drugstore (I found my product at Walgreens) and stocked up on a bunch of the product. I’m excited to give everything a whirl and am starting this morning by using TRESemmé’s Perfectly (un)Done Weightless Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. I will also be documenting how I style my hair with their new products throughout the week, so follow along at @mystylepill on Instagram!


The five products I am trying this week!

P.S. If you have a local Walgreens near by you, make sure to use your Balance Rewards card from now until the 14th to get other TRESemmé shampoos, conditioners, and styling products  for just $3.99!

The thought process behind this outfit:

First off, I want to thank you guys for your comments on my previous post. They were so helpful and insightful and actually inspired this outfit! I’ve been thinking about the month long remix challenge a lot this week and what you guys wrote got me thinking about basing outfits around more classic pieces, case in point, these slim black pants. As much as I love my slouchy boyfriend jeans, I know that most people can’t wear them to work and mostly just wear them around the house or on the weekend. So that said, I decided to pull my favorite black cigarette pants out of my closet and create an outfit around them.


I could have chosen to put on a silky shirt and a blazer, but it felt a bit too buttoned up for me on this particular day, so instead I grabbed my trusty chambray button down, which helped bring a slightly more casual feel to the look, and my new favorite scarf. I played off the colors in the scarf to help me decide on which jacket, hat and bag to wear and before I knew it, I was full dressed!





What do you guys think, do you like this look?

How do you style your black pants?

Outfit Details:

Hat: Rag & Bone / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Scarf: Aldo (also LOVE this one) / Jacket: IRO (mine isn’t available anymore, but here is a similar, super affordable one on sale at ASOS) / Shirt: J.Crew / Pants: Zara (mine are old, but here is a similiar pair) / Heels: Schutz (mine are sold out, but here is a darker grey version) / Bag: Proenza Schouler

P.S. To be honest with you, I didn’t actually wear these shoes out in this crazy weather. I actually wore these short little UGG boots, but these heels are what I would wear if there wasn’t ice and snow on the ground. :)

Yay! I figured out how to fix my video! Give it a listen if you have a minute and let me know your thoughts in the comments! xo

P.S. If you don’t have time to watch right now, the basic questions I am asking in the video are:

Would you guys be into doing a month long remix challenge with me in March?

If so, what kinds of styling would you like to see?

Would you want to integrate themes (such as wearing stripes for a week or incorporating red somehow)?

Also, please let me know what you guys do for a living. Do you guys go to a corporate job or are you self-employed? Does your office require suits or can you wear casual attire? I would love to know so that this remix challenge can be helpful as well as fun. :)

Alright guys, I’ll check back soon to see what you guys think!



Hi guys and happy Tuesday!

So I had made a short video (teaser content and photo above) that I hope to share with you a little later on today, but for some reason right now I can’t seem to get the customized thumbnail to show up when I embed it from YouTube into WordPress. Do you guys know how to fix that? If so, please leave a comment below. :)

Anyway, it should be figured out shortly, in which case I will send out a tweet letting you know when it’s live on here, but until then, I hope you all have a happy and productive day. Stay warm! xo






Don’t mind the lint. For some reason, this hat seems to attract it to no end!

I often get asked how I put an outfit together, and sometimes there is a lot of thought put into it, but other times it’s based off of something as arbitrary as the color nail polish I am wearing or a new lipstick I am trying.

Today’s outfit is a result of something like that, where for example the night before I was watching the movie Interstellar and I painted my nails a pretty light blue color called Blue Orchid by Deborah Lippmann and somehow it inspired my outfit the next day.

Sure enough, the next morning, I walked down to my closet and thought to myself, what color shirt would match my pretty new nails? As I thumbed through a few articles of clothing in the blue section (yes my closet is color coordinated) I came across my “Radical” tee from Textile by Elizabeth & James, which I hadn’t worn in a while but still really love.

With my shirt decided, I then chose to wear mostly black for the rest of the outfit simply because the color of the word on the tee was black. Seriously, that is what went through my mind.

Honestly, when it is SO cold out, it is hard to even get dressed at all sometimes, so I counted this as a win. That I managed to get out the door in something other than flannel pants and a sleeping bag jacket. You people on the East Coast know what I am talking about!


Oh and these Frye boots? My parents bought them for me a couple years ago and I forgot how much I LOVE them.

I’m bringing them back into my daily wardrobe fo sho.




Ok, so onto the finishing touches. I picked this bright scarf to wear (I wanted a pop of color) and initially I was going to wear a red lip, but changed my mind at the last minute and went with a nude lip instead. What do you guys think of the color? It’s hard to see in these photos but I like it because it almost matches my lip color but also has a bit of a mod look to it too.


Basically, what I want you to take away from this stream of consciousness is that getting dressed doesn’t always have to be so hard or stressful. Meaning, it should be fun and on your own terms. Go off what your mood is telling you, what color palette you’re into at the moment and what you want to put out into the world. I understand that a lot of you might have to go to a 9-5 or job and wear more corporate or conservative clothing, but the pieces you are wearing should harness good energy. You should feel good in your outfit!

I know that might seem like a tall order at times, but I truly believe this and teach this way of thinking to all my clients. And after some practice and self confidence, I believe this will start to happen for you if it hasn’t or isn’t already.

Anyhoo, that is my two cents for the day. Thank you as always for swinging by and saying hi and reading what I have to say. Sometimes I am not sure if people actually read blogs anymore, but I still love to write (even when it’s hard to do somedays) so, THANK YOU for taking the time.

P.S. For those of you that don’t know, I work as a personal stylist and am working on starting a YouTube channel where I discuss more topics like getting dressed, remixing, and dressing for your body shape.

What do you guys think? Would you be into it? Let me know in the comments below! 

Love you guys! xo

Yesterday, after being inside for most of the day, Casey and I finally decided to venture out into the cold weather to check out the snow and grab a hot coffee. Instead of pulling on my normal huge puffy jacket and heavy duty Sorels, I opted for some slightly sleeker cream and grey pieces to feel a bit more pulled together, seeing that I had been in my pjs up until then. As I walked out the door, I told Casey that I felt like I looked like Carmen Sandiego, and did we think that was a good or a bad thing? We decided it was a great thing (so of course we photographed it, haha).



This is one of my favorite winter coats that I own for two reasons. One, it was a Christmas gift from parents my first year in New York, and two, it’s Mackage, which is a brand I adore. I love the leather detailing and how it just feels and looks so unique. It’s pretty warm on it’s own, but I layered with a light down jacket from Uniqlo just to be on the safe side.






Truth be told, I forgot my gloves and after picking up this handful of snow, my hands were completely frozen. After I threw the snowball in the air I dashed towards Casey and shoved my hands up inside his jacket and shirt. Naturally he wasn’t exactly pleased, but I just couldn’t help myself! ;)


Have a happy week and stay warm! xo
