Hi guys! So, I have another post coming today, which should be up around 12, but in the meantime, I wanted you all to meet my new fur baby! Yesterday, Casey and I adopted this pretty little kitty from Social Tees, located in East Village. We don’t know a lot about her back story, just that she was abandoned and left to fend for herself. :( Luckily, she was scooped up, pulled out of the kill shelter she was in and serendipitously arrived in front of us at just the right time, yesterday afternoon. They said she was one of the fastest adoptions they had ever seen because once we saw her, it took us all of two minutes to make the decision to take her home. Anyway, she is adjusting nicely and loves being pet while cuddling with us on the couch. She purrs like a little motor, and we are totally in love with her.

Here are a couple photos (who am I kidding I have like 100 on my phone) I took that I thought would be fun to share with you guys.



Oh, and we named her Susan, which has already turned into Suz, Suzy-Q and Bunny (not sure where that came from haha). xo


Hi hi! What are you guys up to this weekend? Casey is back from Nashville (he was there for a work trip) so I plan on splitting my time between catching up and hanging out with him, and holing up downstairs in the closet editing YouTube videos because…I’M LAUNCHING MY CHANNEL ON TUESDAY! Holy moly, you guys, it’s all happpppening. I’m nervous and excited but mostly excited, so I really hope you guys come check it out.

I will be uploading videos on Tuesday and Thursday and they will be focused on fashion, styling, shopping and all that fun stuff, so stay tuned! I will make sure to give you all the necessary info and details on Monday, but in the meantime, enjoy your weekend, stay warm (if you are currently in a cold climate) and wish me luck!

P.S. Please feel free to suggest styling questions, topics and things you want to cover, ok? xo


This is my first Valentine’s Day with Casey and I’m so excited. He has a surprise planned and I LOVE surprises. I have no idea what to expect, but I know that no matter what we do, it will be a blast.


With that said, this collaboration with Chloé couldn’t have come at a better time, seeing that their latest scent is called  “Love Story” … and with February 14th just a day away, it got me thinking about my relationship and love story with Casey.

I could go into a long story of how we met, all the things we have been through together this past year and list off his amazing qualities, but instead, I am going to keep it short and sweet for now and share three things that inspired this photo shoot.

These three things are crucial elements that played (and continue to play) huge parts in our relationship, and mean so much to me…


 1. New York. It’s where we met and is a very special place to both of us.


2. Laughter. I think this is one of the key ingredients to a happy relationship, and is something that Casey and I try to infuse into each other’s lives on a daily basis.



3. Romance. This can be described as many things to different people, but to me, it’s something you create and recreate over time within your own relationship with that special someone. Casey and I try and always keep it alive and well, no matter how small the gesture.


Isn’t the bottle pretty? It smells amazing too.


Locks, seen on the famous Pont Des Arts “love” bridge in Paris, have become an international symbol of love…


So Casey and I followed tradition and left ours on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Stay tuned next week to hear about our date night, but until then have a very Happy Valentine’s Day and a great weekend! xo

Create your favorite Valentine’s Day picture on Instagram and use the hashtag #chloelovestory for a chance to be featured on Tumblr!

P.S. Yes, we were both freezing, but it was so worth it. :)



Look 1 / Look 2 / Look 3 / Look 4

Now that we are already almost a month into 2015, I wanted to take a minute and look back to last year around this time and see what I was wearing, what I was thinking and where I was at the time. Last January I was finishing up my time in Seattle and about to head back to New York to brave the snow and chilly temps. Maybe someday I will do a roundup of all the various outfits I’ve worn on the blog over the past six years but for now, here are four different outfits I wore plus some links to a handful of other fun posts I wrote during that month: 30 Things About Methree mini remix videos,  favorite detail shots, and six love versus cringe outfits. xo

Me and my handsome pup out for a coffee and errand run. Hope your Monday is off to a great start! xo

Outfit Details:

Jacket: IRO / Sweater: Everlane / Workout Pants: Marshalls / Shoes: Nike / Bag: Madewell


My earrings were a gift from Bauble Bar.

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.

Much love for you B-ham. Until next time! xo

Outfit Credits:

Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Jacket: IRO (I found mine during a major sale at Intermix but it looks like it’s still available here. Mine is a size 40.) / Tee: Rag & Bone / Scarf: Zara / Jeans: Frame (gift) / Booties: J.Crew (I bought mine during a mega sale, but here are cute pair for under $100 at Nordstrom)/ Bag: Givenchy


1: Casey and I are in desperate need of a living room wall makeover, so I’m really loving this gallery wall for inspiration

2: Our bedroom in the apartment is really dark, which can be nice when sleeping in, but I still love a bright yet cozy bedroom.

3: Sharing this image just because these cute girls make me smile.

4: Again with that natural light! A nice bright, white kitchen would be so amazing to cook in, don’t you think?

5: Colorful clothing is great, but sometimes all black everything is all a girl needs.

6: Working on attaining cool fonts and came across these awesome free ones!

As I ease into January and get back into the swing of things, I’ve been thinking about a few things I want to try and be more consistent with on a daily basis. I have my bigger life long goals, like keeping up with my gym routine, eating healthy and drinking more water, but I also have smaller, slightly less intimidating goals.

One in particular being more proactive and present on Pinterest! I remember a few years ago when Ben Silbermann approached me at an IFB conference, handed me his business card and told me he had started a site called Pinterest. I didn’t really know what it was back then but it’s so amazing to see where the company is today. It’s truly such a great place to find and share inspirations as well as a great way to keep everything visually organized.


1: I really want to be somewhere warm in the upcoming months. These palm trees have me dreaming of the beaches in California.

2: Cream colored, cozy turtleneck knits are my jam. I love my oversized one I found for $5 at Value Village!

3: DIY chalkboard mugs! LOVE.

4: The lovely Arielle from Something Navy, looking stylish as usual. I want to recreate/DIY this look with a cheap pair of faux leather pants.

5: Easy to make (and healthy) egg muffins! Yummmm.

6: Le sigh. Emmanuelle Alt makes me want to own only simple, classic pieces. And tuck my shirt in. And wear blazers.

That said, as silly as this might sound, sometimes I just get so overwhelmed with everything that is out there and feel like I’m on social media overload at times. That there are more blogs and vlogs than I can ever read or watch, that I’m not posting enough on my own platforms and that I will never be able to tackle and clean out my overcrowded inbox. Because the truth is, instead of delving in, sometimes I just shut down. Does that ever happen to you guys? Ugh, it can be the worst!

But the thing is, I’m not complaining or being negative…actually the opposite. I want to take a look at what’s overwhelming me and slowly but surely, carve out time for what needs to be taken care of, take it one step at a time, and get it done. So, one of the things I’m starting with is, growing and expanding my presence on Pinterest. I want to share more inspiration with you guys, because well, it’s visually stimulating, inspiring, makes me happy, and it’s fun! I’m excited to delve in even deeper and fall down many amazing “pin holes” if you will.

So, in an effort to start flexing my P-muscles, I dug around and found a bunch of images (and the sites they came from) that I like at the moment to share with you guys. You can follow even more of my pins and boards here, so I hope you guys will follow along!

As always, thanks for stopping by and reading what I have to say.

I’m always so appreciative of you guys and your amazing support. xoxo


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.

Happy (almost) New Year! Thanks for your continuous love and support.

I wouldn’t be here without you guys! xoxo
