Embracing Fewer, Better Things

This Spring I am all about embracing fewer, better things in my closet. I want a closet I can peek into and know immediately I want to wear everything in sight. I want a lean closet that is full of high quality, beautiful pieces, and "fewer, better" things. As such, I was so excited when Cuyana reached out to share with me that they would be stopping by Seattle on their Essentials Tour with a Pop-Up Shop this weekend!

Sandal Season

Today is officially the first day of Spring! And I am in serious celebration mode. Alongside the first blooms of the year, chirping birds and of course sunshine, the Spring season also brings with it the return of my favorite shoe, the sandal! It's (almost) Sandal season! And while it might be a little early for flip flops or strappy sandals, a few sandals definitely make the cut for early Spring.

Just Got Engaged? 6 Things To Do Right Away!

Just Got Engaged? 6 Things To Do Right Away!

Just got engaged?! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

It's the 6 month countdown until S and I say "I Do"! And 6 months since S dropped down on one knee and proposed at sunset on a Washington Coast beach. We were out for one last end-of summer camping trip and it was absolutely perfect. Accompanied by a bottle of wine, we were enjoying a sunset beach bonfire (yes, you can really have a campfire right on the beach of the pacific ocean coast!) and breathing in that gorgeous salty fresh beach air. As the sun dipped just below the horizon, he pulled me towards the Pacific Ocean and dropped down on one knee. It was utterly romantic and I, of course, said an immediate YES! 

Since it was late at night, we were out of cell phone range and on West Coast time with alot of our family in the Midwest and on the East Coast, we chose to wait til the drive home to share the news. We had over 12 hours to just savor the moment, start dreaming of our wedding and celebrate just the two of us!

Since those 12 hours, we have been fully immersed in wedding planning. Beginning with phone calls to friends and family to share the news and resulting in questions of when, where, etc. . . right away, I have realized planning a wedding really is a full time job, even if you're working with a wedding planner or coordinator! With 6 months down and 6 months to go, I thought now would be the perfect time to share 6 things I found were super important to do right away after I got engaged. And of course a huge congrats!

You're Invited! Aeon Neue Fashion Show presented by The Art Institute of Seattle

Wednesday, March 1, 2017


You're invited to The Art Institute of Seattle's annual fashion show! On March 15, 2017, Aeon Neue Fashion, a student run fashion show featuring upcoming designers, will showcase at Canvas Event Space in Seattle.

One of my favorite runway shows from 2016, this student run fashion show is the perfect opportunity to appreciate upcoming student designs and meet and network with professionals in the fashion industry.

For this year's show, designers were inspired by their "It" girl. The It Girl that doesn't care what you think. She is fierce, rebellious and in charge. She is the modern and young spotlight of Seattle. She defines Aeon Neue Fashion, "Our Vision. Our Future." I cannot wait to see these designs!

Here's all the details:
