In the Details

Everyone needs a little dose of sparkle and shine. Jewelry is completely underrated, though, and I’ll admit that I don’t experiment with it enough. I’ve amassed quite a collection over the years, but I always find myself wearing the same pieces. Today I thought I’d share with you some of my favorites. The Body Chain The allure of body chains is in their subtlety. Oftentimes they are worn under clothes to only be partially seen. They’re unique because they follow the contours of your body, which is very different than the traditional necklace. I picked the one I’m wearing up…

Making an Effort to Slow Down

  I can’t believe it’s already the middle of July; it seems like just weeks ago we were counting down to the new year. The older I get, the more I realize how quickly time flies! It’s funny because sometimes the days can feel like they drag on forever, but the weeks seem to go by so quickly. Kind of a paradox of sorts. In this day in age, things have been moving at lightning speed and so efficiently that it can be easy to forget to take a step back. Our mental health could really benefit from making time…

Floral Cutout Dress

This month has been one of those months where everything has just been so hectic. I don’t know what’s in the water lately but business has picked up immensely! It’s just the art director and me that make up the design department at our company, and we have two very large web design projects going on simultaneously.

Needless to…

Of course it’s my luck to live in a climate that chooses to only have two seasons: winter and a 9-month-long summer. Georgia heat is its own beast. Not only is it hot, but it’s incredibly humid as well which makes it feel like you’re stepping into a sauna every time you venture outside. Thankfully I’ve learned a thing or two about how to dress for the sweltering heat…

A Quarter Life Crisis

Floral wrap dress from ASOS As my 25th birthday swiftly approaches, my concern for the future has irrationally grown. It’s funny to think that when you were 16, 25 seemed so mature – you thought by this time you would be established and have a clear direction in life. In reality, I’ve never felt more confused! Here’s the thing: school was simple. You (hopefully) knew the outcome and there was an end goal. Once you got past picking a major, your mission was to graduate and land a job. After that happened for me just as planned, a monster-sized question…
