Styling a Chambray Shirt 4 Ways

When it comes to closet workhorses, my chambray shirt is definitely in the top 5. Every so often I’ll update my go-to, this one being my current favorite, but overall, a denim shirt is a denim shirt. Just as a good pair of jeans coordinate with a million different outfits, a denim shirt can work […]

Fall Layering

There are so many changes during fall. Colors change, leaves fall and temps go from high to low to high to low, day in and day out. Currently here in PA, we wake with 40 degree temps that rise to the 60’s by late afternoon only to rapidly drop the minute the sun begins to […]

Ruffled Flannel Midi

When we think of our fall wardrobe, we typically lean towards all the warm and cozy pieces.

In addition to the beautiful plaid and the great cut of this midi dress, […]

Everyday Layers

Not only am I enjoying breaking out the layers lately, but also getting to play around with all the color combos. I’m not a stickler with the whole no white after Labor Day rule, but I do find that I prefer the warmer off-whites a bit more. They pair a little better with all the […]

Welcome Home

Many of us put a lot of time into decorating our homes with the expectation of making them feel warm and welcoming. One of my favorite compliments I receive is when friends tell me our house feel home-y. Although we spend most of our time indoors, the first way to provide a friendly welcome is […]
