How does 1 style a boxy cropped sweater when her abdomen looks like a war-zone? Two rules helped me solve the cropped sweater riddle. Here are 6 looks I came up to style up this cropped, recycled cashmere sweater.
"Boxy" and "cropped" are two of my least favorite words in the English language...when it comes to clothing. One of my favorite words? "Moxie." (A boy told me I had 'gregarious moxie' in high school and it hasn't left me.) Typically this Reformation Luisa Crop Cashmere Blend Sweater wouldn't be on my radar. But, even I am not immune to...

So I put together a gift guide featuring vintage pieces at the top of my wishlist! I can't think of a more special gift than 1 that's completely unique + 1-of-a-kind.
One thing you may or may not know about me: I am a huge vintage fan! I've been a collector of vintage items for years now: jewelry, jeans, art, home decor, sweaters, rugs, bags, etc., I love the treasure hunt aspect and finding really special pieces with a little bit of history. So I put together a gift guide...
So here are 4 outfit-making maxi coats. Like Mom said, they really do look good over everything -- jeans, dresses, trousers skirts -- & they're warm, too.
My Mom recently mentioned that she was getting frustrated with her winter clothing options. She, like me, loves a good uniform for getting dressed in the morning, but now that the weather is cooling, she needs an upgrade. She had been eyeing up some new trends lately, but many of them either didn't flatter her petite self (she's teeeeny tiiiny),...
This confection-disguised-as-skirt is a welcome way to end The Year of The Sweatpants & if you have any outdoor holiday parties planned, then let’s applaud this skirt as the most genius way to wear fleece leggings.
If "sparks joy" is a legitimate factor in deciding what to wear (and, after the last five years, it should be)...then let's call ShopBURU's tiered Teagan skirts (latest colors here or here), wardrobe staples. The new Teagan skirts were too good to keep to myself, AND I'm still planning to repeat this outfit again this holiday season. NOTE: This story...
I'm a fiend for a hot pair of pants & when I saw allll of the corduroy pants at Reformation, it was love at first sight. Corduroy meet + bootcut, in a delicious chocolate color? Immediate heart eyes.
You know what else comes with the changing season, the sudden urge to nest, the imminent spirit of the holidays? A big ol' mess of fast-paced micro trends, all competing for relevancy. I struggle to define "my style" and take the first steps towards fulfilling my dream capsule wardrobe because there's just so much out there. My Pinterest feed...
Vuori's Alpine Sherpa Jacket, is uber-good. It has all the tech specs I like in performance apparel: (warm + cozy, a storm flap, pockets, enough stretch to move...) This fleece jacket is also...pretty.
I do love a good fleece jacket. And Vuori's latest, the Alpine Sherpa Jacket, is very, very good. It has all of the tech specs I like to see in something that is -- technically -- performance apparel (warm and cozy, with a storm flap and enough stretch to move) but this particular jacket is also...pretty. jacket (s) | leggings...
I love the power of a monochromatic look, especially an all-black outfit. While black is not my best color, it's also not my worst, thus: 7 tips to follow to fancy-up an otherwise simple look.
These black jeans have become my newest obsession and some of my most-worn jeans since I discovered them in the heat of summer. I wore them one date night with a crop top and heels. "Wow, I love those jeans. Are they new?" said my husband. "They're pretty cool, cierto?" I replied. I'll talk more in-depth about these straight-leg...
We've put together an easily-digestible list of 15 eco-friendly swaps that are super-easy. This list makes it way easy to go plastic-free, for a more sustainable home.
Anyone else trying to rid their home of single-use plastics? Us too. And while an iced coffee with a straw may seem harmless (as well as all of those takeout bags, candy wrappers and coffee lids), plastic pollution is a real threat, one that clogs our waste streams and landfills, litters our beaches and parks, and, ultimately, harms marine...
This post has been updated for 2021. I've always had issues with cardigans -- long cardigans especially. I'm too petite and most cardigans are too oversized, or long for my frame. But last winter I decided to go for a cropped cardigan instead and during a Naadam sale, I took the plunge and ordered this Naadam Cashmere Ribbed Cropped Cardigan....
