Monday Blues

I spent this weekend wearing and stretching out my new High Rise Ankle Crop jeans from Re/Done, a company that repurposes vintage Levi’s. I’ve been scoping their site for the last few years and I finally decided to take the plunge. Continue reading “Monday Blues”

Hiking 101: What to wear, what to bring, and how to have fun

This past weekend, I went on a hike with my husband and our two friends. This was our third time hiking through Anthony’s Nose Trail and only now did I learn that it’s considered a “hard” trail to get through. Beginners have no fear, this was my first trail ever and I managed to get through it. Once you get to the top, you’ll feel accomplished and relieved (until you realize you have to make your way down). Think Clay Jensen (13 Reasons Why from Netflix) when he finally makes his way up the rock and learns the beauty of the “F’ word.

Spring Cleaning + Favorite Outfits

Attempting a Carrie Bradshaw moment with my prom dress that I have been meaning to donate for years.

After procrastinating for the past few weeks, I finally mustered up the courage to declutter my closet. I have done this many times in the past and each time I am horrified at the sheer amount of clothes and things that I accumulate. This time was no different.

Here are some of my post-decluttering thoughts/things I need to remind myself followed by some of my recent favorite outfits. Continue reading “Spring Cleaning + Favorite Outfits”

If I could only wear one shirt

All the vintage feels

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a dependable piece of clothing that felt perfect to me in every way. First, there was this little black velvet dress that I loved and had to wear to the airport when I was two. Then there was this pink and white t-shirt with little flowers all over it that eventually became too cropped, even for today’s standards. And finally, the Hello Kitty jeans that my mom got me from her trip to China when I was in the 5th grade. I eventually outgrew that too, thanks early growth spurt.

My favorite 3 piece (style) combo

I have nothing to wear.

I have probably said this almost every single day while staring at a closet full of clothes. For the past year, I’ve been editing my wardrobe and trying to figure out my personal style. I tried to only spend money on pieces that not only looked good but would also be comfortable, versatile, and last through more than one season.

This should be easy.  

A year later, I can tell you that it was incredibly difficult to do this. Here are some things I learned:  Continue reading “My favorite 3 piece (style) combo”

Spring Feelings


Happy first day of Spring! What were you most excited to do today? I was ready to embrace today without my scarf and the weight of a million layers. So I did! And immediately, Mother Nature reminded me that she is one bad-ass lady who needs to be taken seriously. So here I am avoiding the cold with a warm cup of matcha from Cha Cha Matcha.
