minimalist fall fashion must-haves report, from runway to street style  

It’s hard to imagine the end of summer is already here. But for perhaps the first time in my life, I’m looking forward to the crisp air and the return of fall fashion.  The longer I work in fashion, the more of a minimalist I’ve become. Passing through phases of maximalism and needing to drop unspeakable amounts on new collections each season- I’ve learned what I will actually wear. And what I won’t.  Yet, it’s still all in fun to add a few new pieces into my wardrobe each season. After watching the runways and drooling over NYC, Copenhagen and Paris streetstyle for the past several months… how could I not.  Image cred: Getty Images Simply put, after months of following this seasons fall trends in the making, here are the 7 wearable must-haves I’ll be scouting out this season to boulder my minimalist wardrobe.  Image Cred: @maria.calvet, Whowhatwear, @mvb The fitted, knitted maxi dress  The return of 90’s fashion didn’t just bring back platforms and chunky slides.

joining JUNOCO on a mission #ToBeHuman

There are a lot of things that make us human–a deep level of complex emotions, a strong awareness of self identity, the ability to question the world around us. We are a lot of things.  Perfect is not one of them. Yet, we live in a world inundated with idealism driving consumerism and self worth.  JUNOCO challenges us to rethink our imperfections with the launch of their #ToBeHuman campaign, asking friends to share personal insecurities, and how they’ve learned to be proud of them.   Thankful for the invitation, I am happy to join the JUNOCO with this message of positivity, learning to overcome perceived flaws and embracing what makes each of us unique-because that is truly beautiful.  “What’s one of your insecurities that you’re most proud of?” JUNOCO asks the question.  Dull skin, the start of a few fine lines that have emerged with time, a splash of multiplying freckles… while they can all be minor annoyances I remind myself these things: Freckles formed from blissful memories spent in the sun. From beaches abroad …

I’m literally sleeping better, with an overlooked luxury we should all invest in – Sunday Citizen bedding review

We spend about a third of our lives in bed. Allowing that to sink in, I’m actually taken aback I haven’t made the comparably modest investment in luxury bedding much much sooner.  Consider the value of a better sleeping experience–one you actually look forward to at the end of the day rather than just another element of life’s necessities.  That’s the difference Sunday Citizen bedding made in my life.  I felt the difference immediately. That deep sinking in feeling my body had been craving since my last 5-star escape (It’s been far too long). The first night of sleep–honestly like a mini slice of paradise. I slept like a baby, wrapped in silky-soft sheets buried beneath a fluffy comforter with the AC pumping.  It felt like a stay at a luxury resort. Deepening my amusement, after making the mental comparison, I discovered Sunday Citizen bedding was ironically born to create just that experience. A story that started with a 4th generation textile family and an entrepreneur hoping to develop a blanket for his luxury hotels. …
