Winter White

So the whole “no white after labor day” thing . . . When does that reset? Well, I’m going to say the new year is the best time to start wearing white (that is, if you’ve even stopped). I think rules are meant to be broken and I say wear white all year ’round. There’s too many cute pieces to give up for some antiquated rule. I’m absolutely loving this cute tunic (worn as a dress, of course).  I just can’t stop wearing tops as dresses,  ...

New Years Polka Dots

It’s a new year but I’m bringing you the same style of cute dresses no matter the weather. I could always say that each polka dot is a goal for 2019 because it does feel like I have that many, but the truth is this smock dress is just so perfect to strut into the new year wearing. Every day pieces dressed up together and proving that a monochromatic look doesn’t have to be boring. This peacoat is great to throw on those cold winter days where warmth is a priority but  ...

Style Roundup: 5 Ways to Cozy Up in Flannel

The temperatures are falling, which means the cozy season is upon us. Just because we have to get buddled up doesn’t mean our outfits can’t be cute! Arguably, they have to be cuter! I mean, come on. I’m not going to let a little cold stop me from dressing my best. I’ve got my coat open to show off my outfit because my skirt is too cute to be hidden behind some wool!

Why You Should Run Straight Into Fear

    I have been afraid a lot lately. I was afraid to board a plane (I love flying, but the thought equally amazes and scares me). I was afraid to go to the conference. I was afraid of making real moves to realizing my dream. Why? It is what I want; it is what I wanted since I was, I don’t know, fourteen or fifteen years old. I have also been very comfortable. I moved home to be with my family; my old bedroom is how I like it, I’m spending time with my dog (she’s  ...

Your Path is Okay

  I had my life figured out. Get my B.A. in psychology, graduate. Get my masters, graduate. Get my Ph.D., graduate. Move to Boston, work as a clinical psychologist on the psych ward floor at Mass Gen. Meet a doctor in the lunch line of the cafeteria, get married, move to the suburbs, that whole American dream. That was my path. None of that happened. I did graduate with B.A. in psychology but I decided not to go for my masters or Ph.D. I moved back home to Pittsburgh and not to Boston.  ...
