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.
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!
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.
P.S. For those of you that live in or around NYC, you should definitely come by the SOREL event next Wednesday from 6-8. To RSVP, just leave your name in the comments. I’ll be there and would love to meet you guys!

Growing up, my Mom was constantly slathering me and my Dad with sunscreen. Whether it was when we went hiking, swimming, skiing or camping, she taught me that the affects of the sun can be very damaging when your skin is not properly protected, no matter if it’s sunny or overcast outside.
Because of her, I’ve become a huge advocate of sunscreen and the positive affects it has by wearing it on a daily basis. So with that said, my recent partnership with Hawaiian Tropic has made me really excited to share their sunscreen products with you, which include Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance and Silk Hydration Face Lotion. I’ve been using both nonstop and compiled three outfits for fun autumn activities (above) that I will be doing this fall while staying protected with this easy to apply, yummy smelling sunscreen. :) To see more from Hawaiian Tropic, follow them on Instagram. xo
This past Saturday and Sunday, I spent the afternoon at two different malls, Roosevelt Field and The Westchester, and hosted two styling events with bloggers Rach Martino, Ian Crumm and Lake Louis put on by Simon Malls, GQ and Glamour magazine. There were runway shows, style challenges and of course, a fun lounge where shoppers could peruse the latest trends and pieces we love for fall. We were pretty much busy non-stop both days, but managed to capture some photos with what went on, to share with you guys!
The styling challenges begin! Rach and I each called someone up from the audience, they were given a challenge, and had two minutes to complete it! The winner went home with a $100 gift card to Simon Malls!
