When it comes to shoes, finding ones with small, feminine details is what I love, especially when it comes to bows. My closet is filled with flats, loafers, mules, wedges and heels adorn with bow details, including a thin bow tie at the toe, neat, structured bow on the side and added ribbon bow at the ankle.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which alway sparks my love for wearing romantic red and rose colored hues. I’m already searching for pieces to celebrate in, even though we haven’t quite formalized any plans just yet. I’m leaning towards a dress to wear for dinner and dancing, but would be just as happy in a cozy sweater spending a quiet, relaxing evening at home – a rare treat for us lately.
The sun is finally shining brightly outside, but there’s still a slight chill in the air, especially in the mornings. My cardigans have been working double-time as an extra layer over sweaters under my coats. They are so easy to remove as the weather warms up. I almost always carry a cardigan with me in my carryon when I travel, since planes can be really drafty.

But there are so many ‘grown-up’ versions that create polished, sophisticated, romantic and fun looks. The trick is to pair the right hair accessory with the right hairstyle.

It’s always nice to start off a new year with a few new classics added to the closet. Pieces that can be mixed and matched with what you already own and that can be worn time and time again. I recently posted 2 looks that mix the old with the new.

A pop of red brings a festive touch to any holiday look, whether it’s in a simple accessory or full-on head-to-toe ensemble.
In my family, stockings on Christmas morning held the same importance as regular presents under the tree. Tiny wrapped gifts, candy, gift cards, sometimes money, and even little love notes were carefully tucked away in the beautiful stockings my grandmother made for all of us.
With party invites streaming in and office parties to attend, it’s the right time to stock-up on small, thoughtful holiday gifts for friends, colleagues, and family. I’ve put together my favorite budget-friendly finds below including traditional and whimsical gifts, from an inspirational pink thermal mug, to a set of crystal embellished earrings, to a hand-blown star hurricane, to a rose-gold mini speaker.
Travel continues to be a big part of my life, partly for work, but mostly for pleasure. So when it comes to finding gifts for our adventure-loving friends and family, it’s natural to gravitate towards my own favorite and well-loved travel items – vintage-inspired luggage, colorful leather luggage tag, leather passport case, convenient toiletry set, comfy travel wear, and keepsakes like artwork and photos to spark fond memories from times spent exploring a new country or favorite city.
