a few of my favorite things


It’s been over a month since my epic closet purge. Since weeding out and paring down, I’m beginning to appreciate the value of everyday basics. My favorite pieces are getting more mileage than ever, and I’m cozying up to the idea of a practical daily uniform.

My new style is alarmingly casual for a girl who once lived in dresses and high heels, but comfort is my new M.O.

Philip Lim for Target crossbody // TKEES Foundations flip flops // Alex & Ani “Love” bracelet // v-neck tee // chambray boyfriend shirt // Nixon Kensington watch // American Eagle skinnies // Michael Antonio Massey ankle boots

    Love all of these things – comfort is my main priority these days as well but I find dresses to be up there on the comfort list.

    PS- what program did you use to make this collage?

  20. When you’ve got great basics like these, everything else falls into place. And I’m loving the Philip Lim x Target bag – SO wish this collab was available in Australia!

  22. I have found that the older I get, and being a mother of a little ball of energy,I prefer to simplify my wardrobe from heels and dresses down to polished comfy.You seem to be doing a great job of this!

    • It is surprisingly roomy! I can fit my wallet, iPad and small makeup bag in there. It’s a great everyday bag.
