Work // Double Blog Lives

Sometimes I feel like I’m living multiple blog lives. I’ve been running around doing interviews, taking pictures, and posting content 4-5 times per week--just not here. That blogging takes place over at CincinnatiMagazine.com and CincinnatiWeddingMagazine.com, but I want to share all the nonsense I talk about there with y’all, too! A lot of it is really fun: Recently, I went to a bridal fashion show at a historical mansion, got a sneak peak at the sexy

Take a look at

Current Obsession // Block Print Scarves

Y’all know I love a good blanket-scarf (aka blarf). Oversized scarves can sometimes come across as pretentious--I blame the French--but for me, they’re a necessity. I can’t explain how or why, but if my neck gets cold, I’m guaranteed to be sick within 48 hours. It sounds ridiculous, but I swear it never fails. One day while researching travel communities, I came across Taarik scarves and was instantly transfixed. The bold block prints, the bright colors,

Style // #BossBitch

Vintage skirt from Portaluca, H&M turtleneck, Jamawar shawl/blarf, Guess boots, Gucci belt Inspired by the ‘70s vibe on the runways, I added yet another vintage leather pencil skirt to my already gratuitous collection of vintage leather pencil skirts. Paired with a simple black turtleneck, black boots, and gold-accented accessories, this combination has #bossbitch written all over it.   SHOP IT!
