Hello, everyone! Today’s post is all about how to style BIRKENSTOCKS! I own four different pairs – brown, black, white and beige-suede but actually had some readers request a post and/or video on how to style Birkenstocks. So here we go!
I created four looks around my four birks, and I also created a fun little video showcasing them as well, which you can view at the bottom of this post.
(Side note: I shot these four outfits (separately from shooting the video version) and realized that I got all the way to the studio and I forgot my BEIGE SUEDE BIRKS!!! Sigh. I left them at home as I rushed out the door. So in the first outfit photographed, I substituted my dark brown Birks instead but hopefully you still get the idea!)
Hello everyone! It’s Thursday, which means two things. One, the weekend is right around the corner and two, it’s time for another YouTube video. YAY! I am really excited about today’s video because it was really fun for me to make, but also shares tips on how to step up your style simply by adding on a few accessories. I start out by wearing a basic white t-shirt and jeans and don’t add any other clothing to change each overall look.
Yesterday I headed to Flatiron to check out the new Eddie Bauer flagship store on 5th, which is the first Manhattan store the brand has had in city in seven years! Seeing as I am from Seattle, which is where the brand originated from, and having grown up shopping there with my parents, I have a nostalgic tie to Eddie Bauer for sure. But what’s so exciting is how much the style and brand in general has evolved and changed. I feel like there’s something for everyone inside, whether you are looking for something to hike in, work out in or just an easy carefree dress for summer, they have it!
Upon arriving to the store, there was quite the party happening outside, complete was a prize wheel, a customized airstream, food trucks and a live band, which was really cool. After checking it out for a minute, I headed inside the store to meet the lucky winner who scored a $500 gift card and a styling session with me. I ended up working with a mother named Maureen and her son Finn, shown above, who were super nice and friendly (he wanted to be involved in whatever we did. :) We ended up selecting two super cute dresses for her since they have an upcoming trip to the Grand Canyon this summer, where she will most definitely need easy, packable items that won’t wrinkle.
I’m wearing a vest from Eddie Bauer, which I also can’t wait to wear in fall with a flannel or layer under a jacket when it gets chilly outside.
I had a blast styling Maureen and was so happy she left feeling great about her purchases as well as having a new impression of the Eddie Bauer brand. Job complete! xo
You guys know I love a good remix, so I am happy to share with you a post dedicated to just that – styling one little white dress, five different ways! You know you all have a LBD in your closet, but do you have an LWD? If not, check out the new video I created (where I explain my thought process behind each look) by clicking above or heading to my YouTube channel.

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great week so far. So, I posted a video yesterday on my YouTube channel sharing how I incorporate color into my outfit. If bright colors intimidate you a bit, fear not, this video will give you some quick pointers on how to infuse them into you look, three different ways:
1. Feeling bold? Choose a bright blouse if you really want to go for it and embrace wearing color!
2. Opt for a bright bag and keep everything else neutral. Tip: Make sure you put your wallet and whatever else you need into a simple clutch inside your bag, so that if you decide the bright color is a bit too much for you halfway through the day, you can set your bag down, take out what you need and the purse doesn’t have to be a part of your outfit if you don’t want it to be.
3. Still a little unsure about bright statement accessories? Try wearing a printed or colorful scarf that can be put on or taken off whenever you feel like it. That way you don’t have to feel too committed to wearing it all day.
Hope these quick tips were helpful! You can shop the look below!
Happy Wednesday! I’m so excited to share with you a recent project I did with Skype, where I personally styled an editor, Hayley, from SheKnows to help her get ready for a date with her boyfriend. I often use Skype when styling clients that either don’t live here or that just need a quick 15 or 30 minute session, so this was a perfect way to share how this application works so well.
Below are some photos taken at Haley’s apartment – you can see me on her computer screen walking her through the process. :) I wrote a whole article for SheKnows on the experience and how I break down the styling process, which you can read HERE!
But for now, I will give you a quick rundown of how we kicked off the session.
First, she showed me her closet…
Then we discussed what pieces she wanted to start with to try and narrow down the selection a bit.
Fast forward a bit to this skirt, which we ended up creating the final outfit around.
We talked about everything from accessories to hair styles to makeup…
And this was the final look we came up with based on what items she had and loved in her closet! Overall, it was a great session and she felt styled and ready to go out on the town with her boyfriend. Win, win! xo
