The Athletic Apparel I Can’t Get Enough Of

While I’ve recently jumped back into working out full time and rejoined a gym (after taking almost a year off), there were a few things I needed in terms of athletic apparel. The week before I planned to return, I went through my drawer where I keep all my gym clothes. As I sorted through my leggings, shorts, and tops, I realized most of it was over a year old and looked like it had been through a lot. I turned to one of my go-to brands and stocked up on a few essentials, which I’ve highlighted below. There’s just something about getting new workoutRead More →

Winter Coat Guide: 36 Styles I’m Loving This Season

One of the best things about moving back to the East Coast is being able to purchase cold weather clothing and accessories and actually wear them more than a few times each year. When I lived in L.A. I’d vacation here for a few weeks in December. Immediately upon returning to the California sunshine and winters of 75 degrees or warmer my cold weather clothing got pushed to the back of my closet. As I created this winter coat guide filled with my favorite picks, I was sure to include a variety of styles, colors, textures, and price points. Here are 36 coats that willRead More →

My Favorite Looks So Far This Year

For pretty much the first half of 2020 my daily attire consisted of loungewear and athleisure. Anytime I shopped, I found myself looking for comfy sweats, hoodies, and sweaters since I was trying to leave my apartment as little as possible. Then, this spring, when more things began opening up, I started planning my trip out to the East Coast. I decided I had enough of the unofficial Covid lounge attire and planned my wardrobe as if we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic, which I’ve continued to do for autumn and the upcoming winter months. My thought process is this: just because thereRead More →

Everything I’m Eyeing For My Summer at The Shore

Last year my family and I restarted the tradition of spending time at the Connecticut shore. This was a place that I grew up going to each summer along with generations of family members before me (you can read about my childhood memories and why it’s so special here). Prior to last year, since I moved to Los Angeles, I had only been back there once in 2013.

This summer, I’ll be heading to Westbrook and spending the rest of the seasonRead More →
