Currently battling a sinus/head cold – ugh. I really don’t like taking a lot of drugstore medication, so besides a ton of water and sleep, do you guys have any natural remedies you recommend? Would love to hear them! xo

Hello, hello! How is it Monday again already? The past five days flew by way too quickly, but I’m so happy I was able to jet home to Seattle for a quick visit to host a very fun event with Nordstrom and Top Shop (you can see some photos from the event, here), and of course see my friends, family and the apple of my eye, Barney. :) He is currently snoring away as I type.
Yesterday we took him to Woodland Park and let him run around to burn off some energy. He is the funniest of pups – I love watching him play, explore and smell everything in sight. Seattle is absolutely beautiful right now and the colors of the leaves (I’m seriously in awe) are breathtaking. Afterward, I met up with my best friend to walk Greenlake (don’t worry, I changed my shoes) and I literally made her stop every five minutes so I could photograph the trees and leaves surrounding us. The colors are just too good. Fall is my favorite and it never gets old. I just try to soak it all in and savor these perfect autumn days before the season is gone, once again.
I hope you have an easy week ahead of you, and I’ll see you tomorrow! xo
P.S. Can you find Barney?
With the weather spiking into the 90s last week, I decided to forgo my beloved lightweight v-neck tees for anything cropped or in tank form. I’m not usually one to show my stomach, but when it gets this hot and humid all I want to do is stay as cool as possible, and a good crop top seems to do the trick.
Luckily, I heard that the weather in New York might be giving us a bit of a break this coming week, so fingers crossed. But regardless, I still plan on trying to sneak in some pool time to escape the city heat! Have a great week everyone! xo
P.S. Nordstrom is having their Anniversary Sale! As a Seattleite, this is something I look forward to all year. You can shop the sale here!

Wore this to brunch in Brooklyn this past weekend where I enjoyed eggs over easy, biscuits and a side of grits – it was the perfect cold-weather meal. And when it’s freezing and snowing out, besides a hearty breakfast, I always gravitate towards oversized sweaters, worn-in jeans and comfy sneakers. In this case, I opted for my new varsity-inspired knit and kept the overall theme simple by sticking with black and white accents. Hope you’re week is off to a great start! xo

Was lucky enough to get my makeup done by the talented and amazing Blair Patterson, who is Estée Lauder’s Director of Global Makeup Artistry.
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice, relaxing weekend. I am gearing up to head to one of favorite cities tomorrow, New Orleans, to attend and support their Fashion Week. I can’t wait to see all my friends, eat good food and see all the amazing collections. I’ll be sharing photos on Instagram, so follow along here! xo
There is nothing like yellow to brighten up the day, especially when it’s been gray and rainy a few in a row. Yellow has been my favorite color since I was a little girl, and even though I might have swayed a bit through my teenage and college years and claimed that periwinkle, was in fact, my favorite color, I am back to yellow. The bright and cheerful nature of it never fails to make me happy or bring a needed pop to any outfit, don’t you think? xo
