The power of distraction is unexpectedly effective.
Take today for example, I’m freezing (yet again!) so what do I do?! I scour the internet for all things vacation, beach and resort and all of a sudden I’m thinking warm sunshine and salty skin vs. my reality of deep freeze and a constantly runny nose.
I’m betting that you’re as sick of this winter as I am, so why not plan a getaway!? Even if it’s only in our heads. However, if you are one of the lucky few who have a warm weather destination on their upcoming travel agenda, have I got some great news for you!
You can pack your carry-on full of beach-ready goodies — and they’re all UNDER $100! Just check out my winter getaway packing guide below:
I’m very excited to be talking about one of my absolute favorite things: HANDBAGS!!!
I’m an accessory girl through and through and this season is no exception. When it comes to bang for your style buck, nothing comes in as strong as a quality handbag.
Think about it — you use this one item countless times, often over the course of YEARS. This little accessory can punctuate any look with polish and style. Quality should be of upmost importance and the thriving luxury market has built a solid performance record based on this fact!
Doesn’t it feel as though Winter has been here FOREVER?
Yet, we’ve only just begun.
This may explain my uncontrollable anger when I cruise into the stores and all I see is Spring ’18 + Resort fashion starting to roll in.
Way to rub salt in the cold, frozen wound, designers.
Thanks, a lot.
In the effort to keep you toasty and get you through the next few months in style, I’ve rounded up 14 of my favorite weather appropriate pieces. These are the chic closet additions that will give you the oomph you need to get you over that dreaded winter funk and cruising right into the spring!
The holiday season practically goes hand in hand with all things plaid, check or tartan.
It’s quite festive, no?!
However, once the egg nog is poured (does anyone really drink that stuff?!), all of the gifts are opened and the ball is dropped you’re left to clean up the mess of the holidays and that often includes retiring some of your favorite plaid pieces until the following year. Fortunately, there is plaid street style inspiration abound — and unlike your Singing Santa figurine collection, this is a holiday style that can stay with us quite a while longer!
After the past 2 weeks of relaxed holiday fun, family time, elastic waistbands and no makeup — it’s SO nice to be back. Over the (very, very cold) holiday break, I took some time to think about what I wanted to accomplish in 2018. The year has only just started and already I feel as though it’s going to be one of those crazy years full of landmark events and hopefully, great things ahead.
It only makes sense to set the tone for this New Year with something that impacts every facet of our lives: color. Color sets the mood in our homes (and our closets) and after what has been a trend towards a minimal aesthetic, I feel like the black and white world is waking up and leaning more technicolor.
In this era of social media facades, online filters and constant smoke-and-mirror performances, it’s becoming harder and harder to distinguish reality from well, everything else.
Although at times you may feel like your daily life is being held together by a complicated network of duct tape, there is always someone you know that just seems to have their sh*t together. They exude this air of confidence, of professionalism and just general IDGAF (a.k.a. I don’t give a f….) that makes them the envy of the rest of us.
I’m NOT that person.
But I DO know a few little tips and tricks to help you join the “I have my sh*t together” club! Surprisingly, these things are neither expensive nor difficult — so let’s get to it so that the next time you are tired, stressed, or pulled in 1000 different directions, no one has to know…
I know, I know… technically Winter 2017 just started a few weeks ago.
However, us lucky folks in Cleveland have gotten to experience Winter 2017’s frozen “kiss” for over a month now. It’s been generally cold, wet and grey since Thanksgiving with spring still a long ways away. Rather than dwell on the negative, I’m going to try to focus on the positive that is winter style. More specifically, Winter 2017 style staples that will fashionably carry us through the season.
While I love winter style, it’s definitely the most difficult season to get dressed.
You’re probably getting dressed up more than any other season, yet it’s cold and gross outside. You want to look nice, but you definitely don’t want to sacrifice your comfort and warmth for style. What’s a girl to do?
