Fall Wishlist

Fall Wishlist

Obviously I, along with most of the human population, wear white in summer. But I feel like this is the first summer where I’ve really embraced how much I love wearing white in the summer. It’s so freeing to know that it will match with everything and attract less heat to keep you cool. It’s such a crisp clothing color– I feel like you can’t go wrong. That being said,…

Packing list for a weekend getaway

Packing list for a weekend getaway

It’s crazy to believe that this summer is almost over. The past few weeks, I’ve been going on little and big trips alike. This weekend we went out to Michigan City which was a blast. The weekend before was a trip to Starved Rock, which also was a great time and definitely satisfied the hiking itch I’ve been feeling lately. Then the week before that was the Budapest and Vienna…

Coming Home from a Trip to Europe

Coming Home from a Trip to Europe

I’ve been feeling very foggy lately. I can’t think of a better way to describe it. I just went on a trip to Budapest and Vienna recently and while I had very minor jetlag upon returning home, I’ve been feeling more of an overall disorientation getting back into blogging, work, and seeing friends. This trip was very short- only 8 days. But I’ve very much become a creature of habit,…

Garmentory Picks + Coupon

Garmentory Picks + Coupon

Since today is so gloomy, I thought I would round up a few inspiring things from Garmentory to brighten it up a bit. Like I mentioned on this post, I’d a tad obsessed with the structure of Garmentory at the moment. I love having access to all these small independent makers– the only downside is that I’m finding things move so quickly. I had the Black Crane Linen Cocoon Dress…

The Perfect Linen Tee – Grana Review

The Perfect Linen Tee – Grana Review

I had been searching for a plain white semi-fitted linen tee for awhile, so when I got this one from Grana, I thought that all my plain white tee dreams had come true! The ONLY thing that was super disheartening was that the hem was way too long. The beautiful, structured linen fabric did NOT like sitting all bunched up around my hips. You can’t tell from the picture of…

Grana Silk Shorts Review

Grana Silk Shorts Review

First things first (and I know this is something that would horrify some silk lovers, but bear with me), I do not dry clean my silk. I wash it on cold delicate like the rest of my clothes and hang to dry. (cue gasps!) Maybe at some point I will start dry cleaning my silk, but for the time being I’m perfectly happy hand washing it. Something I will say…

Elizabeth Suzann Marlena Silk Top + Cecilia Pants Review

Elizabeth Suzann Marlena Silk Top + Cecilia Pants Review

I think that when I’m talking about sustainable, minimal style, it would be incredibly unfair not to mention my current favorite designer, Elizabeth Suzann. Every piece is incredibly well-made from high quality materials, plus they make everything in house in this gorgeous studio that I had the privilege of visiting during their last sample sale. I love how everything they make is made with intention to add to your life…
