living lighter with less

’Til 2022, a deep desire for “less” has continued to well up in my being. Perhaps partially driven by a complex, heavy world around us. Simplicity is uncomplicated peace, and excess is no more than baggage. I’ve applied this not only to a more capsule approach to my wardrobe, but throughout my home and life as well. It’s become easier and easier to let go of the baggage that builds up with time, and more and more rewarding as the piles of unneeded disappear leaving more time to kick back and enjoy what you have. Not only in things which are material, but also in matters of the mind.    We are a generation of over thinkers. Of excess, and emotional weights we carry with us throughout our lives. It’s a new year, and it’s time to eliminate and reduce baggage – physically, mentally and emotionally. The cause and effect is simple, with less, we are lighter. With less burdens, we can stand up straighter. We become free to pursue what makes us truly happy without …

preppy or minimalist, loafers are the new footwear essentials

Love it or hate it, if fashion is your thing, you already know chunky loafers are the minimalist must-have shoes of the season. This confident 90’s it girl style made a huge comeback in 2021, being paired with minimalist and preppy outfits alike. The good news, if you’re late on the trend, it’s not too late to grab a pair. Loafers are going to be around for a while, forecasted to continue through next year after being spotted littering the 2022 spring runways. Why we love them? While sneakers have made their debut the past several seasons as the comfortable essential while working from home, it’s feeling like time to mix it up a bit. We’re back in the office, and we’re having fun dressing for the occasion once again. That being said, we’ve gotten a little spoiled being in our comfies 24/7. Loafers offer the perfect solution – a tailored style that can be worn with casual minimalist office essentials, or dressed up true to the 90’s for those re-embracing fashion with open arms.  …

basic minimalist fashion blogger outfit lifestyle

getting back to the basics

A quiet hum of the dryer beats softly in the background. You can hear the birds above the white noise. A bright light shines through the ample windows. Spring has arrived, and with it a moment of stillness. After weeks on the road traveling between Nashville, Vegas, Atlanta, Costa Rica, Switzerland and Milan – this time at home feels like a haven of its own. No rowdy traffic, no drunken alleyways, no meetings or spewing stress of colleagues – it’s just me, the birds and the creaking ghost of the house (whom I’ve lovingly named Ralph). photography:NICK PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | vinyl leggings c/0:COMMANDO   It’s easy to get caught up in the pursuit of perfection both at work, at home, and managing life as a fashion blogger. These moments are ones that I cherish the most. The moments that allow us a clear vision and stable mind help us to reset and focus on our current existence. The next few weeks will pass here in this place, deep in the heart …

Life is a sort of rollercoaster – ups, downs and plenty of twists between. You can never see the end until you get there, and that’s part of the thrill. Hold on to your hats ladies and gents, you’re in for a ride. Here’s a little peak into what’s been going down this week. Currently ‘en route home from NYC after spending the week working the showroom at FFaNY, I’ve managed to snag a few moments of shut-eye and catch up on a couple lingering projects. Now, time to catch up in my social circle and the fashion blog; excited to share a little bit of recent happenings with you guys. NYC held its old charm, starting with afternoons spent rooftop with cocktails in hand, and ending with some exciting business progressions working on our Spring 2019 line of women’s shoes. Can you guess what was the best part? ;) After last month’s trip into Milan and Switzerland with the design team, it was exciting to see some of the conversation pieces come to life …
