    Everlane Jeans & Tee Sale

    Starting today, Everlane has has an anti-inflation sale, which includes some of my staple items from their line. I’ve noticed that Everlane prices have continued to increase over the last couple of years, so that many of the basics I have shared and linked to over the years are now quite a bit more expensive. In today’s sale, you’ll get OG prices on denim and tees. These are closet essentials that are well-made and form the foundation of my wardrobe for multiple seasons. If you have a gap in your wardrobe, it’s worth ordering some new denim and tees for fall at a lower price. (The sale ends at midnight…

    4 Casual Thanksgiving Outfits

    I am so excited for Thanksgiving next week. Are you, too? It’s the kickoff of the holiday season, and we will be able to celebrate with family, eat some good comfort food, and pick out and decorate our Christmas tree. The whole weekend is one of my favorite times of the year. Taking time away from work & school and finding extra ways to relax and play are so important for our family after this challenging year. Also, because I know it is part of the weekend, I just want to say that Black Friday really isn’t a big part of relaxing or playing for me/us. That’s probably not the…

    Ten Neutral Fall Basics

    Yesterday’s walk to school was full of dark, moody clouds and cooler temps in the 60s and 70s. It’s the time to start a transition in my wardrobe from summer basics towards fall. Today I want to share ten items that create a solid foundation for a fall wardrobe. These are the pieces I wear most often, and they are timeless options that won’t go out of style quickly. When dressing for fall, I am often an outfit repeater. I like to wear the same silhouette, like a tee and sweater with jeans or a fleece with leggings, daily. It feels good and requires little fuss. Because fall can fluctuate…

    Must-Have Fall Denim

    While I’m still in full summer mode, one of my all-time favorite pairs of jeans was just restocked, and I wanted to give you the full details before they sell out again. The ’90s Cheeky Jean from Everlane has been a style staple for me, and I especially love wearing them in the fall with sweaters, tees and even a silk cami on date nights. You see these jeans in my outfit posts often! They are a great foundational piece made from premium non-stretch Japanese denim. The high rise waist and easy straight leg are flattering and feel really comfortable. For fit questions, I am 5’4″ and typically a size…

    Ten Neutral Summer Basics

    Last weekend, I listened to a Tedx talk called the Ten-Item Wardrobe about an American college student spending a semester in Paris. During her months abroad, she realized French women own a very streamlined, small closet of quality basics. They repeat their outfits often and rely on a consistent uniform. I’d highly recommend listening to her story and how it changed her own view of style. It was a source of inspiration as I’ve been slowly decluttering in my own home this month. Less is more! I started editing my own wardrobe to remove outliers I don’t really wear and quickly realized that during the summer months when layering isn’t…

    How to Create a Cohesive Closet

    In my twenties, my closet was a hot mess. Shopping the sale rack without a list meant I brought home anything that caught my eye – aka the loudest, most bedazzled clothes. Nothing went together, and I would stand in front of my closet each morning trying to come up with creative outfits for my job as a teacher. Often there would be multiple pieces scattered on the floor by the time I left. Over the years, I’ve learned to simplify and have slowly shifted to a more cohesive closet built around basics and mostly neutrals that work together. The added benefit is that I can now get quickly everyday,…
