Seeing Stars

For someone who loves prints as much as I do, it may come as a surprise that this is my first pair of printed jeans. I think the micro-stars are adorable and I love how easily they pair with all of the black and white pieces in my closet. The only minus is that they’re a bit long for me. I took the easy route and just rolled …

Heirloom Pashmina

This pashmina is old but most definitely gold. It’s the closest thing I have to a family heirloom. I’m not even sure how old it is!

As a petite girl, it can be hard for me to find a maxi dress I don’t drown in. I felt getting rid …

Paris

I’m lucky enough to have a sister, niece, brother-in-law and his family that live Paris, so I always have an excuse to visit (I also have some friends in the city that I was very happy to see). And so my summer started off with my excellent excuse, spending almost 3 weeks walking through the cobblestone streets under the warm Parisian sun (except for the few days …
