I wore this sweater to the Banana Republic 2015 Spring Preview yesterday and didn’t even need a jacket, it was that warm. It’s the kind of piece that I love because it’s so cozy and fuzzy but also makes me laugh because of it’s furriness, and ability to make me look like I’m wearing shoulder pads even though I’m not. I picked it up at Zara in the kids section for about $40 and decided to give it a whirl. What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

Also, I am so over the moon about my wavy hair. TRESemmé did the hair for the preview so they were kind enough to send over one of their stylists (thank you Johanna!) to give my hair a morning mini makeover before I headed to the presentation. I am hoping the waves last me at least a few days!






Have a happy Tuesday, everyone! xo

Hello, and happy FRIDAY! This weekend is going to be a packed one for me, with lots of friends visiting from out of town, house parties and dinners – it’s going to be busy but I can’t wait! Plus it’s supposed to be sunny, which is a plus, seeing how rainy and gloomy it was yesterday.

In other news, let’s talk about how much I love this bright and cheery red vest and black and red flannel that I’m wearing. I’ve noticed that I am really drawn to Buffalo Plaid lately and am starting to see quite a collection of similar pieces in my closet. I actually just bought this jacket at a sample sale and recently wore this red and black plaid shirt coat while up in Warwick a few weeks ago.

Anyway, my vest and shirt are both from Eddie Bauer, a brand I grew up being very familiar with, especially since I’m from Seattle where flannels, plaids and puffy vests were, and are still very key pieces to us Pacific Northwest folk. :) So when the brand asked me to style up a couple of their clothing, I decided to show how to mix more casual, outdoorsy pieces with slightly more streamlined black pants and knee high boots. Voila, chic and cozy!

Take a look, if you’d like. xo






For those of you that aren’t as familiar with the brand, did you know that Eddie Bauer built the first down jacket patented in America?

Pretty cool, right?

P.S. Right now, Eddie Bauer is having a huge Veterans Day sale through November 11th, so head on over to the site and take a peek! I’m really digging this jacket and these flannel shirts. So cozy!

P.P.S. Click below to see a few fun photos from the Eddie Bauer pop-up shop on 5th ave and 15th street Casey I went to on Wednesday night. It was so much fun. They even had a Twitter-activated vending machine, which dispensed gifts, products, and discount promotions and will be doing so for the next two weeks to anyone who shares on social while in the store using @eddiebauer and #liveyouradventure. My tweet had to do with attempting to ski diamond runs with my Dad. Quite an adventure if you ask me! xo



As a girl from the Pacific Northwest, always having the appropriate footwear and outerwear to face the elements was deeply ingrained in me. Whether it was a good rain jacket or a pair of sturdy boots to handle whatever weather was happening outside, I made sure I had what I needed. Then I moved to New York where there wasn’t as much rain, but definitely harsh winters with snow and ice. I quickly realized that my choice of rain boot wasn’t going to cut it anymore, so I purchased myself a pair of classic SOREL ‘Caribou’ boots. My feet have never been happier during the months of December through March. Yes, March. Believe it or not, there is still a chance of major slush on the ground in New York until the early spring. :/
Anyway, a couple weeks back, when SOREL approached me about partnering together to show how I might style a few pairs of boots from their new fall and winter selections, I was all in. I took a look at the brand’s newer, lighter weight styles and was really pleased with what I found. Below are my top three favorite pairs and how I plan to wear them over the next handful of months.
Take a look, if you’d like to see!

I haven’t done a makeup related post in a while so I thought I would pull together a round up of the beauty products that I use on a daily basis. I feel like my routine is fairly quick and I usually keep my makeup pretty light and natural looking but lately I’ve been playing around with creating dramatic brows, sexy smoky eyes and red lips, which has been fun, especially since we are heading into more wintry weather.

So, here we go!

I usually wash my face in the shower, but since there is usually still leftover mascara under my eyes, I use these Neutrogena face wipes to get rid of any residual makeup. Then I apply moisturizing serum and face spray by Tata Harper. Once my face is dry, I put concealer under my eyes and smooth on my foundation. I really like the brand By Terry because it smells good and goes on really easily.

Next I apply powder, blush and highlighter, then move onto my eyes. (I know that you are supposed to do your eye makeup first so that you can clean around them after applying shadow and whatnot, but out of habit I always still seem to do my foundation and powder first. Go figure!)

Stila’s eyeshadow palette in Soul is so great and offers a range of shades, allowing you to either create a really fresh and bright-eyed look or opt for a more dramatic vibe. For liner, I use Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. I first tried it about a year ago and loved it. I’ve tried other brands and the majority of them are good, but I always come back to this one. It is so easy to apply, plus it’s waterproof and really stays in place all day. Definitely a bonus.

And, last but not least, the finishing touches… lipstick and perfume. I usually apply both right as I am walking out the door so my lip color and scent is fresh for wherever I am heading. And that’s it! This routine usually takes me about ten minutes tops, which I am sure Casey appreciates. :)

As always, thanks for reading, and please feel free to share some of your favorite products in the comments below! xo


Now that the winter months are here, it’s time for me to start doubling up on moisturizing. I’ve talked about it before on the blog, but I have really sensitive and dry skin and have had times where my skin is so itchy it’s unbearable. I try all sorts of products, but in the end I usually go back to tried and true brands that I grew up with. I use Vaseline products at home for my lips and hands, but when the brand contacted me to talk about how I stay moisturized this winter, and if I would give their body lotion a try, I was all for it.



A couple weekends ago, I was up near Leavenworth for a wedding and the cabins were super warm and toasty, while the weather outside was cold, damp and rainy. The combination and back and forth change in temperature can really do a number on your skin, but luckily I brought my Vaseline® Intensive CareTM Advanced Repair Fragrance Free Lotion with me and used it everyday, in the morning and evening. I’ll say that it was my saving grace, because I don’t think my skin would have looked half as good for the wedding without it!  The lotion has been designed to combat dry skin with a special blend of humectants (to draw water into the skin), and healing micro-droplets of Vaseline® Jelly (to lock moisture in).







P.S. Have you guys had GODIVA Hot Chocolate? I brought some with me (I like to add it to my morning coffee) and made in my personalized My Style Pill mug, which made it taste even better. :) xo
