Grid Lock

The urban phenomenon of “gridlock,” where traffic comes to a standstill across a network of intersecting streets, is no fun. The fashion phenomenon of intersecting patterns is, on the other hand, a playful way to mix up your wardrobe in a fresh new way.

6 Skincare Splurges & 1 Steal

It’s almost (almost!) Spring, and that’s always a good time to rethink and refresh your skincare routine. When it comes to beauty, I am an ingredient and information junkie. I love researching new products and brands and am not afraid to turn myself into a human guinea pig. Sometimes the result is smooth, glowing skin that gets me a day full of compliments and other times it’s an expensive failure that ends up in the trash. You win some, you lose some. So in an effort to cut through the confusion and needless spending, here are a few of my newest and tried-and-true faves. And…this is NOT a sponsored post.

Birthday in Bogotá!

If you’ve been following me into 2019, you know I’m going kind of Marie Kondo on not just my closet but my life as well. So with another birthday on the horizon, I made sure to tell my husband Chris that I didn’t want any “thing.” I wanted experiences. So he went to work. And surprised me with 5 days/6nights in Bogotá, Colombia. Time to break out my high school/college Spanish — which is rusty at best…if I’m being generous!

Show Your Stripes

For the first time after three days of snow, it feels a bit like Spring out there. But there’s a reason they say March is the cruelest month. As sunny and warm-ish as today is, there’s surely some bitter cold ahead. All this changeability in the weather means your wardrobe has to work even harder to transition from winter to the warmer weeks ahead. Treating yourself to a new piece like this freshly striped sweater is just the ticket. In fact, this sweater inspired me to shop my closet and come up with an outfit I’d never considered before.
